Question cpu fan problem !!


Hi, i recently switched to FC7 from windows.

I find my cpu fan rotating continuously! this never happened with windows, or any other linux, (previously I had both linux and windows on my comp), is this because of the overhead caused by fc7 is too much ?

Plz suggest something, it is an HP Pavilion dv5000 series notebook pc, Intel core duo processor (1.66GHzX2), 1 gb ram

I would guess and say that under windows there was a software program the monitored and controlled the CPU fan speed based upon the hea output of the CPU itself. Now that you are running linux, that software is gone, so the fan runs at high speed continuously. There might be a way to control the CPU fan's speed from within the BIOS. Take a look at your system's documentation for instructions on how to access the BIOS.
