dell i530 cooling fan stuck on passive cooling.
Hello. I've had this computer for five years and have had MANY different distros on it. I have never been able to figure out how to get the cooling to work in a setting other than passive. The sensors always show the same temp in Linux (this has to be an error) but in Windows the fan speeds up and slows down like a 'normal' computer. It used to be a big project of mine to fix this but then after a while I figured "Meh. 1.6 GHz is fast enough.". I'm thinking now that maybe I should get this computer up to it's full potential. There is nothing in CMOS to set. Any ideas?
