:hello:  everyone,

as you can see, :bounce:  I'me new here sow thi will be my very first question on Tom's Hardware.

I'll explain miself.
For more than 6 months, the temerature of my CPUs (there are two of them) where over 75° :fou:  and some times, when I play a game or when I convert a movie, my computer crashes (I supose that's normal to avoid overheating).
So, my question is,
is there a program that can control the fan speed? :heink: 
Otherwise, :cry: 
Thanks a lot for any answer!

If your CPUs are over 75c then you need to check your heatsink and make sure it is on there properly. Also make sure that you clean off any old thermal paste and put new, clean thermal paste on the CPU.

The fan for the CPUs are normally controlled by the BIOS. It monitors the temp and sets the fan speed accordingly. But if they are at 75c then the fan will be running at its maximum speed so no fan control program will help.

As I said, check your heatsinks.

Which CPUs do you have? Are you using the stock heatstink and is there any overclocking being done?

There are three things that I must say :

First, I've already cleaned my PC.
Second, for the CPUs, AMD turion 64x 2.
And the third thing (I'll look stupid, but)
What does overclocking mean, Badboyzasr ?

So its a laptop. Are you sure the fan is spinning? A laptop that old will not run that hot. I am betting your CPU fan is bad.

Overclocking means to speed up your slower processors's frequencies to match higher end processors, for example oc your 1.9 ghz processor to 2.5 ghz, but not an option in laptops. As for your case, what's the ambient temp in your room? Have you tried checking if the laptop fan makes some noise when it starts up? I know as a fact most amd laptop board do not let you monitor fan rpm, but give hwmonitor a shot, it's a free software and let's you check your temps. Try usig a notebook cooler, my temps dipped about 10 degrees On the laptop by using one.

I just checked one of my old laptops, and I remember I had a similar processor, the laptop was an Acer 6530 and the my previous posts mentions the temperature dips when using a notebook cooler. I have not had a good time with AMD mobile processors, so I am just going to advise you to get a new better laptop/netbook or get a notebook cooler, as a cheap but working alternative.
October 2, 2011 11:12:51 AM

OK, but,
first, how do we overclock :heink:  ?
Second, yes I am sure, my fan is spinning (but I don't know the speed of it).
And the last thing, what is the difference between AMD, Intel Core I3, I5, I7 :whistle:  ?

The ambient temperature in my room is about 20° to 22°.
Is it too much? (I must say for me it is, but I don't know what the computer thinks about it)

Yes, it does indeed, how did you know? :lol: 

PS : I hope I wrote correctly this time! :whistle:

Check your Heatsink and Fan if it touches the Processor and clean the dust.
thats what i do my pc before was reach 85C after i see my problem is my heatsink not touching the processor :)  but now my processor is 28C CHeck you heatsink if they touch each other.

Wait, you came here fearing high temps and now you want to overclock? Don't try to overclock an OEM, they get unstable too quickly.
October 3, 2011 5:13:02 AM

yeah, thats about correct Death valley. I torture tested my laptop a few minutes ago and the temps went as high as 92 C, my specs are AMD athlon X2 1.9 Ghz processor on the Acer Aspire 6530. The Ambient temp was about 22. My last resort was to use a compressed air can, and purchase a notebook cooler (i own a 2 fan cooler, but if you can find a good deal on a 4 fan notebook cooler, get it!!).

Overclocking would require a desktop PC as OEM such as Dell, Acer, etc lock their settings in bios. There is a workaround by using software OC (overclocking) tools, but that is if you have a replacement system and this one is going to be thrown away, which in basic terms means melting your CPU down to liquid as there is not enough cooling in the laptop.

Hope this helps

:hello:  Hello again and sorry I couldn't answer :??:  , I had to reset my laptop after an other bluescreen, my lap wouldn't start :cry:

Also I've already cleaned my laptop.
I'me about to buy a new one (a rather cheap one because I'me not a millionaire), could you tell my if it is good?

And of course, the price ; 436,926 (GBP) or 688,181 (USD)

For example, for a conversion of a 1 hour 40 movie, how much time will it take ? (using FairUse Wizard ?)
About 2 or 3 hours ?
