of course, this leads to erratic behaviors both on the part of the machine and my brain. Is there a tutorial for how to tear it down and see whether something is stuck in there or a program for fixing the stoopid fan (or the stoopid operator)?

I have speed fan installed and it says that my temp is

HD0: 42C
Temp1: 53C
Core: 50C

I would guess those are kind of way too hot.

well first off we would need more information than that.. what laptop exactly.... most laptops take quite a bit of tear down to get to the fan ( most that I've worked on anyways ) though I've seen some that actually have a door on the bottom to replace the fan.... The core temp seems maybe a little high to me but it depends a lot on what actual processor you have and is that at idle or have you been running it alot when you get those temps?

it seems to run hot from about five minutes after I have it on.

this is a Compaq Persario v2000

Recently the battery just gave up and will not hold a charge at all. I have no idea if this is related, but I would not be surprised.

After a 40 minute sit (on its side so the bottom is out and cooled) the temps are:
HD0: 25C
Temp1: 28C
Core: 16C

In ten minutes:

HD0: 30C
Temp1: 38C
Core: 29C

No fan sound so far...

at 25 minutes (still no fan sound)

HD0: 37C
Temp!: 47C
Core: 35C
I will rerun in ten minutes and edit this to include T10 temps



Is there a place I can go to take a look at fan settings and control?

not sure but those last bunch of temps you posted sound good to me... I am certainly no expert in this area but again if your temps stay below 40 -50 c I believe you are okay...

OK. GEtting a little quirky now and temps are:

HD0: 44C
temp1 56C (but was 61C before the fan went on for about ten seconds)
core 44C

I don't think it is OK, but I cannot be certain it is the temperature, either.
