A couple months ago I had an issue with my laptop overheating to the point it would lag ridiculously after 5 minutes of being on. The plastic at the bottom of the computer was actually bubbled and peeling off that's how hot it got.
I sent it to the computer tec's and they came back after doing testing, saying that there were 2 fans inside my computer, but only ONE of them was working, the 2nd fan was not getting instructions from the computer to turn on when it got too hot.
They installed a driver, and installed a temperature gauge that shows temps of all hardware, and showed that both fans were spinning and working.
All was fine until tonight when I had to be an idiot and run some virus scan that found this driver, (I didn't know what it was called, I just hit DELETE!) and it wiped that driver off my computer and now the 2nd fan isn't working again.
Does anyone know how to get the 2nd internal fan working again? I tried googling internal fan drivers, but I can't come up with anything and I don't want my computer getting ridiculously hot again. bla.
