Hi Ash,

please post back the results so others may benefit, (if it worked), or we can try other things, (if it didn't)

I will post my final results here but as of right now I’m not sure what the word is. Since installing the Intel Motherboard driver you pointed out to me, the fan still does not get loud at anytime as it always did with Vista.

However, the hot surface isn’t too hot at the moment but that could possibly have something to do with the fact that the room my PC is sitting in, is much cooler because of the weather, over the last few days. I’m just not sure why the surface is cooler now even though the fan is still humming away at that very low speed it has been since I did the Windows 7 upgrade. I think I’m going to try and get the system working hard and see what happens.

Mushroomboy, I wish I could access some kind of fan control but my Bios (Phoenix R2090J8, 2/26/2008) seems to be locked down by Sony. In my Bios I only have a few options; passwords, boot order and the clock, seem to be all I can access.

Guys also, my HDMI port got fried 4 months ago and Sony sent out a tech, who replaced the motherboard and said that he went ahead and replaced the fan even though I wasn’t having any problems with it as far as I knew. I normally take my laptops apart every 6 months or so and clean the fan and area around it.

Nigel and everyone else, I just wanted to let you guys know that the Intel Chipset Driver Nigel directed me to, seems to be working just fine. I wasn't sure because I had yet to hear the fan blazing away with its high sound as it has in the past. So I installed Crysis, which always made this same PC's fan (running Vista 32-bit) run full speed and very loud. After a few minutes of Crysis, the fan kicked up a speed and got louder. Still not max speed but it is very cold (for LA) in my home office so I figure all is good now.

Glad to hear things are working to plan

Win 7 is better optimised for use with laptops than was Vista and so you may well see the demands placed on your system lower than when using Vista. It may be that the fan is quieter n normal use as it actually has less to do

Thanks again! I never even thought of the possibility that the fan speed difference could have something to do with Windows 7 vs. Vista the hog. That makes a lot of sense and I'm even more thrilled about my upgrade now. Windows 7 has turned my year old Vaio into a brand new PC.
