You might check your motherboard BIOS for fan setting controls.

thanks, but the BIOS has no fan control. I did check the usual stuff. I think it is windows 7 itself that is interfering. Can't find a setting to change to fix it.

Are you overclocking?

Also, what is the make/model of your laptop?

Check your Device Manager for a bad installed device.

If you don't have any bad devices installed according to the Device Manager, I would recommend you take your laptop to somewhere like STAPLES and have it cleaned.
It is possible that you might not have adequate airflow.

Like I said.. Already tried all the normal things. Yup, already tore it apart and did clean a nominal amount of dust off the fan blades after I couldn't find a software or driver fix etc...that too.

I know this is an old thread but jjust wondering if a fix was found. I'm having the same issue I can avoid any problems by not putting it in to sleep mode which is what causes the fan to stop working but would like a solution to the problem.
