hi i have a lenovo 3000 y500 laptop which is pretty old and its becomes hot while i game on it.
i have notices that when it boots its fan rotates at very fast speed but not for long and as the operating system starts it starts rotating slowly and same speed while my games.
i would like to increase its speed which will hopefully cool my laptop.
speedfan isnt able to change my fan speed.

what are the temps when in game? it may not need increased, and it may not be possible to alter the fan speeds. I would check the BIOS, if theres no way to control fan speeds there, and speedfan doesnt have any way to do so, I would suspect that that the fans are uncontrollable that they are fixed speed fans. If you want it running cooler then a laptop cooling pad like this maybe your best option.

If you are one hard core gamer, I would also try going for a real gaming rig as laptops are not designed for regular or long hours gaming.
