Extremely loud fan, Acer F690GVM

Hello,

I have an Acer Aspire M5100 which is extremely loud due to the processor fan always being on max level.

I've tried installing SpeedFan, which it doesn't react to at all and to me it seems highly unlikely that the fan isn't compatible.

I've checked the BIOS settings but can't seem to find anything there either.

Would someone please help me, the noise is driving me mad?!

If the heatsink fan is plugged into the CPU_FAN header on the motherboard, and the BIOS cannot control the speed, then it is likely that the fan is defective. Try replacing the fan if possible, or replacing the heatsink. (You stated that you have checked the BIOS, and found no issues there).
