Not too long ago, I posted a thread asking about the G in 6920G. I got all the information I needed to install Windows 7 successfully.

But now another problem has come up. My laptop is overheating, seemingly because it doesn't know how to use the fan!

I think the fan is working properly, it's just the computer slows it down at random. I have already tried cleaning it, with no luck.

I'm posting this here because sending it in for repairs is the last thing I want to do.
I live in the Faroe Islands, a little place in the middle of the Atlantic. Sending my laptop to the shops means sending it overseas to Denmark. It's expensive and takes weeks.

So I'm hoping that this a software issue. Shower me in your wisdom!

EDIT 1: I attached a complete report of my laptop generated by Everest 2.20, just in case.

EDIT 2: Sorry about that. I meant it slows it down to a minimum, but never stops it completely.

EDIT 3: Yesterday, I found a program called SpeedFan. Since I installed it, the fan has been running normally.
I think my problem is solved! You should check out SpeedFan. It let's you set your preferred fan speeds. Very nice!

You said in the title that it is slowing down and then in the post that it is stopping which is it?

i could have just been that you computer did not feel that it needed to run the fan so fast. my computer the fan speeds up on when i am going something that requires a load. so it could be that because winodws 7 takes a bit less system power to run that it was slowing down the fan to conserve battery? but glad it is fixed :thumbsup:
