Windows 7: Hot !

21 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Hot !

I seem to be running hot for no good reason. .The fan spins but simply doesn't go into high gear and spin faster as my laptop gets hotter.

The fan is clean as a whistle, there isn't anything to stop it from going faster, but it just doesn't. I don't keep it on the bed, couches or whatever other objects people like to put theirs on. This is simply that the fan isn't kicking into HIGH SPEED.

The fan pretty much just idles at the same LOW speed regardless of how hot or cold the laptop has gotten.

I have gone under power management and into cooling options and set them all to PASSIVE. .My BIOS don't give me any access to fans. .SpeedFan doesn't support me I guess since it doesn't see any fans, and neither do any other fan control programs out there.

Does anybody have any ideas ? ? I am running Windows 7 64-bit and laptop just reaches temps of 70-80 Celsius like its nothing. Everything is up to date. I have a hard time keeping it under 75 Celsius with a cooling pad.

win 7 ( 64 bit)

i don't no much about laptops but i'd say it sounds like the heatsink is not setting right on the cpu if it's running that hot.
has the laptop been droped ?

Has the fan ever spun higher when in heavy use? Have you cleaned the inside lately?
