I am looking at a Gateway M450ROG laptop. The user is explaining that the CPU fan used to come on occasionally, but now, never turns on. The fan does turn on for a few seconds during boot up, but after that, it is never heard from again.
I installed Speed Fan and am getting a temp of 48c which is comfortable - I think.
Does anyone know at what temperature the fan *should* turn on? For instance, if the CPU gets to 55c, should the fan kick on? Armed with this information, I will try to work the CPU and warm it up as a test to see if the fan / temp sensor are indeed working correctly.
