  1. 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.
  3. Are you overclocking?

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

    No not doing anything special. It's an Acer Aspire 5315.
  5. Check your Device Manager for a bad installed device.
  6. In speedfan look for the 'auto fan speed' setting. Uncheck the box, and configure the fan speed.

    nah. Already been there. . speedfan isn't controlling...just reporting.
  8. 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.
  9. Staples??? Have you read the qualifications to work there? There aren't any.

    Check out post #4 in this thread. It's a similar issue, and it fixed his problem.

    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.
