After installing new Asus P5QL-VM DO motherboard.

In the BIOS the fan is set to "Silent".

When the PC is booted up and is setting at loggin the fan runs slowly.

The instant someone logs in the fan goes to max and stays there.

The processor temp stays at 42deg C.

Asus is telling me the operating system "Vista Home Prem" 64 needs to be reloaded.

Any input would be appreciated.

You said you installed a new motherboard, this would mean that drivers would need to be installed for it. Generally speaking, if you add a new motherboard, you need to reinstall the operating system.

The OS is set to recognize and work with the old board... there is probably a lot confusing the OS.

This is exactly the same model board as the bad one. The Chipset drivers have been installed.

Is there any third party software that will control the fan?

Eveything works perfectly except for the fan speed.

Thanks for the answer.

That should be ok then.

Is there any third party software that will control the fan?

Your using Vista 64bit right? I would look under the Utilities and Other sections HERE Also, there is a program called speedfan, but I'm not that familiar with it... I tried using it once, but it didn't seem to control my fans, I may have been using it wrong. Try Speedfan.

Does the OS work flawlessly then?
If so I don't know what it would have to do with the fan inless you have the Asus software that controls HW monitoring.
