Is there such thing as a program that can control the fans in a computer...or a way to get the computer cooler?

SpeedFan seems to be a popular choice with some of our members.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

There are all sorts of cooling devices/techniques for a system.

The simplest is to just add more fans.

What makes you think your system is not sufficiently cooled now?

my notebook always overheats when I take it off the ac adapter. I just downloaded "Speedfan" it shows me my hard drive and the temperature of it, but it doesn't seem to be able to find my fans in order to control them. Help?

The methods suggested were mainly for desktops. You might try a can of compressed air and blow out the vents of any lint build-up inside. Another consideration is a laptop cooling pad
