Summary0001696: Since Upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit No Fan-Voltage-Speeds
DescriptionOn Vista 32 bit, Speedfan worked well. When I upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, Speedfan stopped registering any information in the Fan, Voltage or Speed tabs. I believe you have to have some information in one of those tabs to checkbox if you want the fan speed controlled--without the checkbox, I can't select fan control.

My laptop had been overheating and shutting itself off. I replaced the 60 mm CPU internal fan and the 75 mm internal GPU fan and cleaned out the laptop case thoroughly. I placed the laptop on an aluminum cooling stand with 2 X 70 mm fans blowing into the underside vents of the CPU and GPU, placed 2 X Evercool Exhaust Vent fans on the sides of the case (next to the CPU & GPU), and placed 2 X USB unattached fans blowing into the intake vents for the CPU & GPU.

I'm currently running Core temps of 60-75 degrees C and GPU temps of 50-70 degrees C with all the fans running. I think if I could get the fan information needed to control them I could achieve lower operating temps. Is there any way to get Speedfan to register information in the Fan, Voltage and Speed tabs?
Steps To Reproduce I start Speedfan with the highest Administrator privileges, the program identifies the sensors, and then on evaluation of configuration, I see that the tabs are blank under Fans, Voltages and Speeds. This is reproduced each time I start Speedfan.
