Question fans working all the time


hi,

i'm using slackware 13.37. (Sony Vaio VGN-FS315H)

my fans are working all the time, they are loud and it's annoying.

I already did sensors-detect, but I get this message every time.

Code:
Sorry, no sensors were detected.
This is relatively common on laptops, where thermal management is
handled by ACPI rather than the OS.
What do you guys suggest?

Thanks

Try /usr/sbin/pwmconfig.
