|Summary||0001833: SpeedFan fails to detect a fan, but finds all sensors. Having overheating problems.|
|Description||Hi, I have a problem with Lenovo Thinkpad SL500.|
I used to have a 32 bit Vista installed, but i upgraded to 64 bit Win 7. During the update i also downloaded the latest BIOS. Ever since then my exhaust fan has been totally unreactive to temperature. It just runs at a slow speed no matter the load or temperature. Eventually it will overheat, go to emergency shut down and the fan will throttle to the max with a black screen for ca 30 seconds. I can restart once it cools down.
With windows Vista it used to throttle up every time the system got a bit hotter, it took a few seconds for it to go to max if i covered up the exhaust vent, now it just doesn't react at all.
SpeedFan gave me some hope, but I soon noticed that it doesn't detect my fan, so theres nothing to control. Could this be a SpeedFan problem, or maybe my BIOS isn't detecting the fan at all and thats causing the fan to be unreactive in the first place?
|Additional Information||Thinkpad SL500 bios has no info or options about fan control. Not sure about the motherboard, i just googled it <.<|
