    You have 7970M CrossFire, correct? This has been a problem for a number of people. I had a Windows update that was conflicting somehow with the video drivers that was causing this and rolling back with System Restore before the last round of Windows updates fixed it.

    If you are not using the correct sensor settings it can also cause it. Check yours against those shown in the image below and set them to match if they do not already.

    All the fan controls on laptops are simultaneous like a desktop chassis fan. You cannot control them individually. This is normal and nothing to be concerned about.
