fan never stops working

I have an Asus A2H, its a P4 2.8Ghz.

Im using mandrake 10.2 Rc2 and have just updated my system
( kernel-
The problem is the fan never stops working, makes too noisy (think im going
deaf), but as i remember since i use mandrake, since version 7, it always was
like this.

If i go to Windows the laptop runs smoothly and the fan only works when is
needed (compile and such).

This is very annoying, any help?

Probably, the relevant kernel modules are no longer getting loaded. To check, type lsmod. Does it mention 'fan' and 'thermal' ?

if not, modprobe them.

To enable it at startup, check your modules loading script file. Don't know how it is called on MDK, all I can tell you is that on Slackware it's /etc/rc.d/rc.modules. Try replacing rc.d by init.d
