speedfan not adjusting fan speed

Last Modified: 2012-06-22
I tried to adjust my fan speed as it's too damn low (540 rpm) and currently the CPU temp is 53 degrees C. However I can't manage to get the fan speed up using speed fan. Why is this? is the BIOS blocking me for doing so? How can I set the fan speed then? The system is a dell xps 420 with a Q6600. Please suggest me what to do
