    ClevoService exists in fan control already. Dunno what changed. We'll see. Most likely John is able to fix it in the mean time

    I don´t think there is anything to fix, as i said that´s probably because it´s the unregistered version.
    I´ll have enabled BETA for TODAY.
    Please test the full unlocked app and let me know if it´s working.

    Here are my findings:
    With the GPU disabled (i.e. not in use):
    Max to EC - same problem. GPU fans stay stuck at high speed (could be just one of the GPU fans - I'm monitoring by sound, so not sure)
    Max to any other button - no problem, GPU fans slow down as expected
    Any other button to EC - no problem, GPU fans slow down as expected
    Max to any other button and then quickly to EC, while the fans are still slowing down - same problem. GPU fans stay stuck at high speed

    With the GPU enabled (i.e. in use): Max to any button - no problem, GPU fans slow down as expected.

    Then it´s not Fan Control doing that.
    If you indeed have the latest version (currently installed with included latest ClevoService).
    When you click the "EC Automatic" i send the following to the EC:

    - Set Fan 1 @ 60
    - Set Fan 2 @ 0
    - Set Fan 3 @ 0
    (It doesnt even matter if you have all the 3 fans, i always send that first)
    So that in theory should be enough to turn off the GPU fans.

    Then I send:
    Set Fan 1 Auto
    Set Fan 2 Auto
    Set Fan 3 Auto
    From this point on all fans are being controlled by the EC.

    So, not only i´m telling the EC to set the fans to Automatic but i even set the GPU fans to ZERO before that.
    Something else is causing that, does that also happens with Clevo Control Center uninstalled?
    Specially because once i tell the EC to go automatic our Fan Control software is doing nothing, if the fans are stuck then it´s the unit EC that is keeping them stuck.
    Also, i can´t reproduce that in any unit with switchable graphics which in practice should be the same as yours.

    Clevo Control Center was never installed on this Windows installation (clean install 1809 then later upgraded to 1903). I'll clean install 1903 in a few days and see if anything changes.

    Latest Fan Control 2.4.4 I even did the 'fix dependencies' thing.

    The big hint here is that Fn+1 does not have this issue. Lets me toggle between Max and Auto without fuss. Is it possible that your commands 'set fan 2 @ 0' and 'set fan 3 @ 0' are being rejected by the EC as being unsafe? Could you try changing those to 60 also?

    On a different matter, on the Control Station, could you put the 'disable touchpad' somewhere else (hidden tab)? I accidentally disabled my touchpad LOL and had to dig out my cordless mouse to get the touchpad back.

    Luckily, this happened while I was at home. Had I been travelling, I would have been in big trouble.

    It's fine, you can still enable it by pressing Fn+F1, it's not a hardware disable.

    Hello,

    I downloaded the software, and I clicked activate and it sent me to your website to choose the model.

    I can't find it though, can you please confirm if this model supported or not ?


    SAGER NP8258 (CLEVO P157SM-A)

    Thanks :)

    Hello Mate

    @Ultra Male

    That control utility/app is just what I am looking for. I have an Eluktronics P650HP6-G and they have absolutely nothing anything close to what you offer. Can I PM you or can you PM me. I WILL PAY to get that app shown above. I was told to come here. however, am not sure who the owner/developer is. I'm gonna assume you are due to it being listed by you.

    Sincerely

    Tim Dickerson
