I closed the lid of my computer (Viao VPCF111FX) and then went to wake it and it would not wake. I had to hold down the start up button for 5 seconds for it to shut down and then start it up again. Now the fan is running constantly. Does anyone know what this is or how to fix it? It was running fine before that. The fan would never come on. I am not running anything except email and internet.

On my Laptop in the bios, it has a fan on all the time option.

Mine was on as default.

My laptop is a HP PAVILLION DM3-1020EA

Shut down the computer.
After shutdown, press the power button.

As the BIOS screen flashes, you may see something along the lines of:

Press F2 for Setup
F12 for Boot options

F2 should take you into the BIOS. Note: not all computers are the same in this regard. Some computers require that you press Delete or Esc to enter the BIOS. If you miss it and Windows starts to load, just be patient while Windows boots. After Windows boots, shutdown and try again. Do not, I repeat, DO NOT do a hard shutdown while Windows is booting. This could render your system unoperable. Like I said, if you miss pressing F2 and Windows starts to load, just be patient and try again. :huh:
