General :: Control Fan Speed In Gateway M-6848 Laptop?
Jan 15, 2011
how to control the speed of the fan in my laptop ? i use ubuntu ...i don't seem to use it to full power and it is always cool .. it makes lots of noise.i don't know what to say for commands i've run . i tried lm-sensors but it says command not found. sensors gives me some output and "temp1" which say +69degrees maximum 89 ..i used the search function but it just gave me some unsolved threads.
I'm trying to control the fan speed on my laptop (IBM Thinkpad T43.) I used lsmod and saw that the thinkpad_acpi module was already load, but I know I need the fan_control=1 option so I did this:
$modprobe thinkpad_acpi fan_control=1. Then I did: $echo level 7 > /proc/acpi/ibm/fan and I get an error: write error: Invalid argument
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here, Also, if I wanted to load the module thinkpad_acpi at boot time with the fan_control=1 option, should I add it to /etc/rc.modules? In other words, does the rc.modules file override udev? And do I need to remove the module before reloading it with the fan_control=1 option?
I really need some control over my fan speed, as it seems by laptop is running rather hot.
My gateway laptop shuts down either imediately after booting, or while I'm online, usually within the first 5 minutes. I have a laptop cooler and aima fan at the laptop while using it. Could it be the hard drive? Is there any way of knowing before I buy a new hard drive?
Basically I'm working as part time administrator in a company, and still am at college. To keep the story short, the company I work with used to have a linux gateway, namely Untangle. We tried to upgrade to E-Box, which is supposed to have more options than Untangle, but it doesn't seem to work as it should. What I'm trying to ask here is this. I need a gateway system that handles QoS, Content filtering, Mail Filtering, DNS, Wan failover / load balancing, LOGS (important), Firewall and maybe the handling of separate users or groups. The ideal solution would be one that like the E-box, has a central control system, without the need to adjust code in CLI for configuration. I have some experience on CentOS and Fedora, so I am able to do some configuration, like installing Samba, DHCP and VNC.
How do I go about changing the fan speed? My laptop is running hotter than normal and although its not melting the case I'd rather turn the fan up to increase cooling if possible. Noise is not a concern as I normally have music playing anyway.
I have a Intel Core 2 Duo 1.86Ghz CPU and I have attached a Zalman heatsink & fan to it for extra cooling. However, the default fan speed is very high and it is too loud and definitely unnecessary. So I use this program in Windows called EasyTune5 (which is for gigabyte motherboards, the brand my motherboard is) and I can set the default speed to zero or 1. There are values between 0 and 100, 100 being full speed of the fan. Setting it to a low value like 0 or 1 makes it very quite. Of course the speed of the fan goes up when the CPU heats up or is being utilized more BUT most of the times during idle, its back to being really quite.
Does ubuntu have any software that can do this? I know there are software to check the cpu temp but i need one to actually control the default fan speed.
I got a new computer and got it running Slackware64-current. It's motherboard is an ASUS M4A88TD-M and it's processor is an AMD Phenom II x4 965. I decided to get some chassis fans to improve it's thermal performance. But, since I started the computer after installing the new fan (only one of the 3 I got) the fan's speed is at max and it's very noisy. I'd like Slackware to control it's speed according to temperatures from lm-sensors. Output of # sensors-detect can be found here. Kernel is stock -current 18.104.22.168. Output of # lspci is here.

I have problem with funs speed in my fujitsu rx100 s6 server, rpm funs is 3000 ? I think it is not standard speed funs. On windows 2008 server funs works quietly. Fujitsu supports only windows servers, red-hat enterp. and suse enterp. Is there any software to control speed fans?
I installed Karmic 64-bit on a new Phenom X4 Quad-Core PC. I've replaced the stock CPU cooler with a Cooler Master Hyper TX3, enabled all fan control settings in the BIOS, switched their profiles on silent, enabled the Cool n' Quiet option as well but my CPU fan is still noisy and seem to be running up to the max number of RPM, thus ignoring BIOS specifications. Besides this I can tell there is something wrong with it since even the CPU is on idle or with just the regular browsing, media player operations, PC sometimes freezes or is automatically rebooted .
I installed lm-sensors and went through all the sensors-detect operations (output attached to this post) but it doesn't show anything else but the CPU and HDD temperature which is always 40 Celsius degrees.
Just installed the latest ubuntu on my PC. When I was running windows I had a tool called asus smartdoctor which allowed me to vary my video card fan speed. I really need to increase this fan speed as my video card overheats. Is there a unbuntu compatable program that would allow me to change the fan speed or do I need to install Wine and run smart doctor that way?
I've installed f11 on my machine and am wondering how to control the fan speed for my graphics card, its a asus EAH4850 (single slot, fan starts automatically at around 10% speed).
The card goes at around 85 degrees Celsius with stardard speed with no 3d, and 110+ when running any 3d application, wich then causes it to not respond. i have to set it to around 60% speed for safe temperature.
I'm used to windows, there i could either use the asus smart doctor or the catalyst control center to adjust fan speed, i'm looking for a linux alternative.
I have a Radeon 3870 (rv670) that seems to work great with fc13 out of the box, with one exception. The stock fan is constantly running full speed. It's too loud. Proprietary drivers don't support fc13 yet. Has anyone found a way to make this work?Edit: The best I could do was switch to ubuntu, install fglrx and then issue the following cli commandCode:aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 15"
I'm running openSUSE 11.4 with GNOME. I have an EVGA nvidia GTX 285 installed, which is equipped with a variable speed fan. I'm running the nvidia driver package which includes the nvidia X Server Settings utility. The utility allows me to view the fan speed as a percentage of its maximum speed but does not allow adjustment. It appears that the speed remains at the card default of 40% regardless of GPU or card temp. When running certain graphic-intensive applications my card runs quite hot (sometimes >70 degrees C). Although this isn't hot enough to burn the card up in the short term, it is certainly hot enough to shorten my video card's lifespan.
So, the question is how do I set up my system so I can increase the fan speed to 50% or better yet, get it to increase as the GPU temp increases? The nvidia X Server Settings help indicates that fan speed is adjustable after enabling coolbits, but coolbits is not installed on my system and is not available from the default repositories. What is the easiest way to obtain, install and enable coolbits? I have no intention of overclocking my card. It was too expensive to risk damage to the card.
I often run my ubuntu as SSH server only so i stop GDM when i do that, but i found out that after i stop gnome, my ATI gpu fans spins up like crazy and sounds like a jet plane, (i have ati closed source driver installed) i am worried to leave the fan on like that, so i have to start a X session again. Then the fan slows down I would like to be able to have slow fan speed when i drop to text mode only, one is its light weight, two is for security
I'm rather new to Linux and haven't been on it for more than a week. I've been trying to find a Linux operating system that'd be compatible with my computer - I went through about 4 of them before finding openSUSE and really liking it. My main problem now, however, is that it seems to be rather unstable when it comes to running programs after a while. I've been on the computer for about 30 minutes for this session and tried using skype, for example. After about 5-10 minutes of using it, skype ended up crashing. There weren't any other programs open at the time either. After a while of doing anything, it usually lags up, taking about a minute to unstick so programs respond, and even gets to the point where it sometimes doesn't detect my keyboard strokes (though I think this is a separate problem that has to do with the disfunctional multimedia buttons - usually, after a minute or two, the typing begins to work again).
I've also noticed, however, that when trying to start up, the computer automatically goes to a 'start up options' screen where I can either boot in openSUSE normally or try the failsafe option. Is this normal? Usually, before shutting down or booting up, a black screen with white writing will flash by, sometimes followed by multicolored stripes before settling on the openSUSE log-in screen - at first this freaked me out and I'm still not sure if that means it's having an adverse reaction with the computer. The webcam doesn't stay disabled either after restarting, but I'm not sure if this is normal or not.
Has anyone else experienced these problems? The Windows Vista Home 64-bit that I had installed on my computer originally was OEM and I tried calling Gateway for help with the computer when something happened to the operating system that made it unable to connect to the internet regardless of what I tried to do (even the system diagnostics tool didn't help). I mention this because I'm wondering if the fact that it was OEM might have something to do with it? Or should I not try Linux at all on here and return back to Windows for this one? I've read around and a few people have said Linux is best working when installed by the manufacturer before purchase. Is this true?
After the problem with Vista, when I came upon the Linux OS's I was really intrigued, and I find I really like them especially for the fact that there's so much interaction with the terminal command prompt. I'd like to continue working with the openSUSE OS but does it sound like I should? or should I install the 32-bit version instead?
After I put my laptop for a system update, some of it [sounds] works selectively in my browser when I am watching ..... but when I am playing some musics on my desktop, there's no any sounds coming out. Then I noticed that my Output is still in 100% but 0.00db and a Dummy Output.
I already tried some steps I saw in some threads that has the same problem too but it became worse, I no more [completely] sounds anymore.
I'm running ubuntu 10.10 on a gateway NV7915u laptop that has built-in bluetooth. However, ubuntu doesn't seem to be detecting it (it tells me that my computer doesn't have any bluetooth adapters plugged in).It seems that Fn F6 is supposed to enable bluetooth, but it doesn't seem to actually be doing anything
I have two computers. The first computer has windows xp in it and is a member of the local lan with ip address 192.168.11.21. The second is my laptop having ubuntu 8.10.Both these computers are connected to each other via the broadband router which assigns ips 192.168.1.3 to my laptop and 192.168.1.1 to my desktop. I am able to browse the lan of 192.168.11.x via the desktop and I want the same possible on my laptop whose only connection is through the router to the desktop. Is there any way I can do it?
I have an intel core i3 laptop, it has 4gig of ram only showing 2 I am also running the x64 bit version of fedora 14.. My graphics will not work correctly. I have tried the intel driver for linux.. It did not work( or i did something wrong) very possible in messing up the install. I would llike to know if there is an update coming out or if i could get a step by step on how to fix, this issue..
I'm not able to get the Desktop Effects/3D graphics to work on a Gateway laptop. I suspect that I'm not using the correct nvidia drivers but I don't know what drivers I need for my system.I followed the instructions from this link with no luck.
Some system info: # uname -rs Linux 22.214.171.124-74.fc14.x86_64
I recently switched from windows 7 to ubuntu 10.10 on my Gateway NV56 laptop. I previously had used wubi on it and had no problems, but with this installation it frequently crashes to a black screen and I have to reboot via the power switch. alt+sys-req+REUISB does not work, and I have lost a lot of data to this.
My hardware is as follows -AMD turiion X2 RM-75 2.5 GHz dual core processor -ATI Radeon HD 3200 -4 GB memory -500 GB SATA HDD -6 GB Ubuntu -41 GB linux swap -453 GB data
I am new in using Debian 5.0, my wireless doesn't work I make a search to know how to do it. So I open "Terminal" $ su (press enter) I wrote the pwd than when I wrote : # gedit/etc/apt/sources.list I found this: bash: gedit/etc/apt/sources.list: No such file or directory
I didn't know what to do, I proceed with: # apt-get install ipw3945 modules-$(uname-r) ipw3945d firmware-ip3945 bash: uname-r: command not found Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Couldn't find package ipw3945
