1. Ignore and avoid anyone unhelpful called 'Graham.'.
2. Not with a laptop. With a desktop there is a level of fan control dependent upon the motherboard and fan-type installed. However, you can purchase external fans for a laptop which clip-on and can be controlled.
(Sorry Graham., just had to get that in given your previous posts!)
It's just that my laptop fan has been on for hours now, and it never used to. I have changed and mucked around with computer settings in the last few days, and wondered if I'd done something to change it.
PS what ever Ive done is welcome as the chuffing thing isn't burning my legs like usual,
I must have done something though, thinking about it.
changing your power plan to high performance may cause the fans to come on more often if that is what you are trying to do.although not advisable you could go into the advanced power settings and change the minimum processor state to a higher percent.i would think the life expectency of your lappy would decrease though :o(
