Windows 7: Windows 7 - Laptop CPU and FAN issue

Windows 7 - Laptop CPU and FAN issue

Hi All

Since upgrading from Vista Ultimate to Windows 7 ultimate, my laptop CPU fan keep spinning all the time in high speed. It seems something triggered the fan to run (eg. CPU temperature is high or something else).

So I have been reading many post in different forums related to "overheated" CPU in windows 7 and Fan related issue.

My Laptop specification as follow

Asus Laptop X80L
CPU: Intel Pentium Dual T2370 1.73GHz; 1.73GHz
Hard Disk: 350GB SATA
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

I upgraded the Hard disk from 250GB to 350GB. I need to pull out the hard disk to see the speed whether 54000rpm or 72000rpm if required.

CPU Fan spin really fast all the time and warm air coming out, I believe the CPU is hot. So I download SpeedFan to check further.

HD0: 53 degree C
Temp1:63 degree C
CORE0: 53 degree C
CORE1: 52 degree C

Task Manager: CPU Usage 1% (very low)

Does anyone know Temp1 means?
Is the temperature above normal? According to SpeedFan it is not, as the Flame icon appear as shown in the attachment.

If the temperature is above the normal then something must triggered to speed up the CPU fan, can we see the threshold setting of CPU Fan in windows 7?

It is quiet interesting issue as I am not running many applications, CPU Load is 1% according to task manager, but the CPU run in high speed and warm air is coming out.

If someone have similar issue, please let me know.

Asus does not have new driver update for Asus X80L .

Thank you

Hi Jonathan King

Thank you for your response.
I am considering to purchase the following product for temporary solution

Notebook Laptop VACUUM USB CASE COOLING FAN COOLER PAD - eBay. (end time 19-Jan-10 21:55:51 AEDST)

Sorry, not mean to advertise.

It seems this fan cooling product will cool down my CPU temperature for temporary solution.

Thank you

Hi Pusspa

I am pretty sure there is no Hard Disk indexing anymore. If so I should notice in task manager and the CPU load a bit higher than 1%. The Laptop has been running non stop for 3 days now since I upgraded to windows 7

Thank you
