Fan controlling problem on windows7

Fan controlling problem on windows7
Hi every one, Iím new on the forum but I need your help
Cause Iíve bought a laptop model PHN 15008 with the following specifications:

Philco PHN 15008
Bios: 1.01
Software: Linux
Processador: Intel Core 2 Duo T6500, 2,10 GHz, 2 MB Cache L2
Placa m„e: Pegatron
Chipset: Intel PM45 + ICH9M
Placa GrŠfica: ATI Mobility Radeonô M96-M2 (HD4650),512 MB GDDR3VRAM
Memůria: 4 GB,(2 GB X 2 GB DDR2, 667 MHz)
Disco RŪgido (HD): 320 GB, 5400 rpm, Serial ATA
Tela Widescreen: 15,6Ē(16x9) LED LCD, UXGA(1366 x 768)
DVD: Super Multi, DVD RW - with Dual Layer


I particularly donít like the Linux OS, and I decided to put win7 on it. And I had a problem after doing it. The win7 fan controller doesnít seems to be working correctly like on the linux os. Cause it accelerates slower than in the in the Linux making the Gpu to get high temperatures during game-play. I need some help on solving this or some suggestions. Iíve tested some programs that controls the fanís speed like Speedfan and have no improvement.
So what do you think ?

P.S : the CPU and GPU are refrigerated by the same Fan.

Where in Windows 7 do you see a fan control?

Win 7 is more GPU intensive than Linux, maybe the processor is just working harder.

Is there any type of switch on the fan itself, or anything in the bios about setting temps for fan speeds?

Yes win 7 is more intensive on cpu usage, but i was saying that the gpu and cpu use the same fan. So the GPU on gaming get so hot but the fan don't work as fast as on the Linux i think is something with the win7 fan control(i dont' think that ther is a fan control on win7 that users can control)
I think that there isn't anything on the fan to control itself, and neither in the bios.

From your description, you apparently have a passive graphics card with no fan of its own.

You could:

Change to a card with a fan.

Mount a fan as close as possible nearby to blow on it.

Some fans can be controlled by particular connections on the motherboard and some respond to changes in internal temperatures. Others are fixed and blow at a constant speed.

What fan are you referring to in particular? CPU heatsink? Front intake? Power supply? Rear exhaust?

If your system has only 2 fans--PSU and heatsink--you can't expect much. You might see some improvement by improving airflow in general by using a front intake, a rear exhaust, or both.

The cpu and gpu(graphic card) are side by side , so the fan is over them refrigereting both.
I would like to know why the diference on temperatures and fan rotation on win7 and Linux.

Win 7 is more intensive on GPU usage. You might not expect this but it is. The GPU probably runs a little hotter even without gaming.

If there are no fan controls to change speed, do you have another choice other than changing your fan configuration? As you said, there are no Win 7 options for this, unless you change Win 7 performance by possibly turning off aero.

There may be other performance adjustments you can make, like using a lower resolution, but I will have to check.

He has a laptop, so adding a fan is not an option.

you can try to use something like RivaTuner to set your fan to come on at a lower temp.
