Fan starts again and again and again

Postby asppie » Sat Mar 10, 2007 1:19 pm

Hi!

Is it normal that the fan starts repeatly?
It´s very irritated.
Normaly the fan starts when the computer works hard, but mine start even if I don´t have any programs in progress....
What should I do?
Is It something wrong with the motherboard temp.sensors or something wrong with the BIOS?

Please help to get this irritating thing stopped.

best regards Pierre

It depends on which laptop you have.

What are the time intervals?

You can try this, it won't solve the problem, but it should be better:

I have the same problem with my Amilo Pi1505

Yesterday I decided to adventure myself and opened the laptop, removed the heatsink and put some Arctic Silver grease.

Unfortunately, I've not solved my problem, as it continues to reach 85ºC during the intel TAT burn-in test...

The Core2Duo T7200 is the "top" processor for the Pi1505, but FSC should have been careful to use an adequate heatsink for this CPU.

Yesterday I tested a Lenovo T60 with this same processor (C2D T7200) and the maximum temperature the cores reached was 81ºC (in my case, cores reach 87/89ºC with the same test). The huge difference is that this Lenovo's fan is way more quiet than Amilo's one, which insists on turning on whenever temperature crosses 65ºC...

On the other hand, the lastest BIOS available for Pi1505 has included support for the following processors:

Additional information:
- The µ- code and support for the following processors has been added:
- Intel Core Duo T2350
- Intel Core 2 Duo T5300/ T5500/ T5600


Now I wonder...where the hell is T7200? :roll:


PS: I apologize for this verbal "relief"...but I'm quite disappointed with my laptop... :(

Hi!

I have an Amilo M1437G With Intel Centrino processor.
The time intervals is about 30 seconds between every time it starts.
I will try your suggested tips.

Thank´s
