    The fan comes on and off every minute or two and it's driving me crazy. This happens even when the CPU is at or near 0% usage. I think it's been like this from the start since I bought it.

    If there's no full solution, perhaps there's a way I can get the fan to remain constantly on - even that would be better than the constant on/off/on/off pattern.

    The specs of the laptop are:
    Acer Aspire 5742 - Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 370 @ 2.40GHZ

    I've tried setting the system cooling policy to "passive", but to no avail.

    Check the CPU temperatures- maybe it's overheating and that's why fan is working at high rpm.
