SpeedFan problem

Hi!

I've tried the BETA version, the latest version and older versions of SpeedFan. None of them detects my correct ChipSet and none of them detects my fan.

I want to change the fan speed and I don't know how to do it withou SpeedFan. I have a ATI, and I tried CCC, but I don't kknow how to do it, neither if it's possible to do so..

Please HELP!

Argos Monitor (30 day trial version) could do it. Three year license costs € 14.95 or US $ 19.95 if it's right for you.

I tried this a while back on an old machine at the recommendation of a friend though ended up using SpeedFan.

Also this may be of use- Quixey Results: change fan speed

This is a great free search resource to find alternative software and is more reliable than AlterantiveTo. You can change options to show only freeware, etc.

you could try the following, although i don't know if it will work for you.

control panel >> hardware and sound >> power options >> change plan settings >> change advanced power settings >> processor power management >> system cooling policy >> change to 'active'

this should make your fan work harder, keeping your laptop cooler.

sorry, i'm all out of ideas - i use the beta of notebook hardware control to control the fan on my little netbook, but it's currently 32bit only, so not much use for you.

maybe there's a dedicated forum for your laptop model somewhere? that's how i found out about the above software for my netbook - some forum member there managed to hack the ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) section of the program so it ran well for the netbook. oddly the problem there was how to make the fan run less, and not more!
