    Default Any way to control fan speed?

    My CPU hits 80C all the time, and my fan is never on on the side of my computer, I was hoping there was some sort of thing which could turn it on with a bit more effeciency, or one where I could just juice it to 50-100%, I have an Acer Travelmate 4670, if you need anything else to tell me what kind of program or something just ask! Thanks.

    The only way that you may be able to would be with Speedfan

    Some motherboards support it, some don't use it at your own risk.

    Good Luck

    So if that doesn't work there's nothing I can do? I mean, it's ridiculous, my CPU gets up to like 80-90C, and the fan doesn't come on, that seems like an enormous hardware flaw or something, I just wanna make sure

    I'd strongly suggest getting a cooling pad for that computer, 80 - 90*C is very hot compared to any laptops I've seen.

    What CPU do you have by the way? If it's a Pentium M you can try the undervolting section of the cooling guide. There are two cooling pad reviews in there too.
