Please use simple jargon, I'm a computer novice. Hello, I have a dell latitude c610, with mobile intel pentium 3.
I noticed the other day while using my computer, the fan was'nt on. So, I came to this sight and found something about a program called Speedfan. So, I downloaded it and then clicked on the icon, and as soon as I clicked on the icon I heard one fan come on and stay on and another fan came on for a couple of seconds and shut off. And as soon as I closed out Speedfan I can hear it come back on for a couple of seconds and then shut off again, while the other fan continuosly runs. Could someone please tell me why my fan does not seem to work until I open Speedfan. Also, I don't understand how to use this program and could it harm my computer. I didn't change anything within Speedfan, just looked.
