I loaded the app called "SpeedFan" and am trying to use it to turn on the fans sooner as the temperatures it is reporting in about 50-60 C.
It asks for the motherboard name to help configure it. I am not sure what it is.
Has anyone used this before?
Welcome, what you are trying to do with your laptop is not possible with speedfan. If you do not have any options in BIOS/setup then you are stuck with what you got, cleaning all air vents is though a good idea.
