Howdy,

I need some advice please.
I've got a packard bell easy note e5 laptop with Centrino Technology
But am having a problem with my Fan.

It's constantly going on... as soon as i turn on my laptop.
MY home is just the right temperature.. not too hot not too cold just right.

It stops for say 5 minutes then carrys on - this happens rarely.

I'm getting really worried.
I've even cleaned out the fan :P

Could it be processes i'm running.
Thoing i'm not running many. svchost.exe is taking 26,000K
also IEEXPLORE.exe is taking 17,940K, also IEEXPLORE.exe again 29,000K and another 14,316 - I've never known my fan to go like this.
And am getting quite worried now.


I would appreciate any help

Thankyou all

David.

What you call just the right temperature, may in fact be not just the right temperature for your laptop.

If the fan is running, then the Laptop obviously believes it needs cooling!

I personally wouldn't worry about it at all.
People are always ADDING extra fans into their PC's to assist the cooling, not trying to stop them!

:D TroubZ :P

lol, i agree. Ive never been worried about stoping a fan. But, if you want to check the temperature, you can under the BIOS.

David- i have a laptop as well, unless it sounds like the fan is hitting something you dont have to worry about it. My computer has a tendency to speed up the fan when some programs are being used. so as long as its not hitting the sides of your computer you have nothing to worry about
