Dell XPS 1710 Fan Issue
Posted on 2010-11-20
I recently got a a Dell XPS fixed. Anyway, the guy in the store asked me if I wanted to have the fan on full constantly (had a previous issue with the vidoe card overheating). I said yes.
But, wishing I didnt, its very noisy on all the time and would like it just to run as per normal.
I have tried the BIOS, nothing there. I have downloaded FAN software, but nothing I do there seems to affect the FAN from constantly running at full power, so I'm thinking there must be soemthing set on the motherboard or FAN itself.
Before I open it up, could there possibly be something on the MB or FAN (switch or something) which is causing the FAN to run at full power all the time.
The guy is not contactable any more unfortunately.
The laptop runs Windows 7 if it makes any difference.
