CPU Fan always on full power on my Vaio
Posted on 2006-07-18
I have a Sony Vaio PCG-K315S
Processor is a Mobile Intel Pentium 4 3.06Ghz / 533Mhz System Bus / 1MB L2 Cache
I recently had a HDD failure and had to do a rebuild on the new HDD, I have followed all of the drivers off the Vaio website. Now for some reasion the Processor fan is on full power nearly all of the time. Its as if the computer is working like mad. It even does this when there are no programs running.
I remember something before the HDD failure where the processor would run at half the speed, it doesnt do this any more, could this be why the Fan is always on because it is running at full speed.
Is the issue to do with Intel Speed Step?? I dont think it is set up plus cannot find it on the net, what about my Vaio Power management????
