Change fan speed!! HELP

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello!

I have a laptop (HP dv6 3050ep) and it is overheating. It is like ~60ºC jus for being on! I wanted to change this so I started to look on how to change the fan speed.

SpeedFan won't work: it doesn't detect my fan (probably because it doesn't support it.

Catalyst Control center doesn't have any option to control that.

AMD OverDrive isn't supported for Mobility GPUs

I have tried RivaTuner, but had no success.

I have now installed MSI Afterburner and it seems a really nice program. But it won't enable me to change the fan speed!!


I have an ATI Mobility adeon HD 5600/5700 series.

Please, help me!!! I really need to change the fan speed!
Thanks..

You usually can't adjust laptop fan speeds. Its usually an automatic setting that the laptop's BIOS controls.

You can however check that your heatsink fins aren't clogged full of dust! Get some compressed air and try to clear out any dust.

With overheating laptops, the cause is usually always due to dust build up.

I don't think it is dust, because when I bought it, it was already like this. Plus, every computer similar to this I've seen, it is overheated..

I tried to go to the BIOS, but there is only an option that has to do with the fan: enable or disable - set fan to always on

I really need to change the speed of the fan :x any ideas?

Dust it out, if that doesn't help then buy a cooling pad.

If its definitely not dust, then there is a fault with the cooling system, in which case get HP on the case.

Have you had it from new? Or is it 2nd hand?

Bear in mind that laptop CPUs and GPUs tend to run about 20C hotter than their desktop counterparts. As long as the temps are not hitting 90-100C you will be fine.

Just to clarify, is it the CPU or the GPU you are concerned about?

Well, the i5 580m in my laptop is idling at 55-60C.

These are normal temps for laptops.
