So, My laptop cpu fan recently stopped running. No mystery there right? So i replaced the fan and voila!!! Still not working. I did a restore and got the new fan running, but my computer started to run like garbage. So i did the iolo system tune up and fast again, but guess what? fan is jacked again. I have no idea what is causing this, and i know it isnt hardware. any help?

Have you updated your BIOS to the latest version?

I'd suggest checking with the manufacturer to see if this is a known issue.

Tried that. They all suggest buying a new one or vacuuming out the existing fan.
If it helps its an Hp dv7-6135dx

I'd remove the Iolo software, then run chkdsk /r on the Windows partition.

 

BC does not support the use of "optimizers" and "registry cleaners" because they are the source of various problems.

OK, so remove iolo, then set the computer to run chkdsk on c:/?

Ok so, uninstalled and ran chkdsk /r on windows partition. Both the original and recovery partition were clean. still no fan.

Your fan...would seem to be a hardware issue.  There are no software answers to a fan problem...the best suggestions re that are the ones that you have already received.

 

The suggestions I made were meant to overcome system problems not related to your fan dysfunction and possible overheating.
