What your after is a software fan controller, it might be possible to find one but your fans spin for good reason. The cpu runs very hot in those laptops and needs sufficent cooling when its busy otherwise it will overheat. Something that might bring the need for the cooler down to a minimum is a Laptop cooler fan that has two large lo speed fans underneath your laptop to keep it cool. I found this:|internalpccables|-&utm_medium=InternalPCCables

sorry about the huge link. I would do some shopping around for an item like this.

Hope it helps

    How much are you looking to spend? if your after second hand try and get "Centrino" in whatever laptop you want. It generally keeps cooler than the P4's but i dont know of an especcially quiet laptop. youle have to give it a good google.

My 1998 lexus e300 is running hot and I noticed the cooling fans are both running but at low speed. what controls the fan speed

The PCM(computer) controls the fan speed. Low speed comes on around 200 degrees, high speed kicks on at around 225 degrees. If they come on when you first start the engine, the coolant sensor is bad. PCM is in default mode and runs the fans all the time. Since it doesn't read the 225 mark, it won't kick on the high speed. Turning on the A/C will also kick on the high speed fans. That's if your A/C works.

Filled Coolant reservior and radiator Drove trailblazer at highway speed no cooling problem. When slowed down in traffic temperature increased to about 220 and higher, could hear coolant bubbling in...

If there is bubbles occurring even inside the top part of the radiator (where you have the coolant put in), you may have a leak on your head gasket. You may be loosing coolant through the engine.

I just purchased an 03 Trailblazer LS 4x4, the salesman said it has an electric fan, which I'm not familiar with. Is it supposed to be loud when accelerating? It does seem to "shift" down as the vehicle...

Siunds more like a visous clutch fan. It's bolted tho the water pump hub and belt driven. Electric fans are attached or mounted against the radiator and are driven by an ekectric motor that is relay controlled. Electric is quieter, yet can be heard when they kick in. Only because it is at an idle or low speed.VC fans can be very noisey depending onwhar srage of engagement it's in. Both fans are negated by the ram air effect at speeds above 35 mph. If your fan is noisey throughout the acceleration and shift range and variable levels of noise are exoerienced in down sgifting, You have a viscous clutch fan.

Multi speed fan on Gateway too loud..

You may have more than one fan.
The fan in the power supply may not be replaced, but you can replace the switch mode power supply with a newer model that has a larger fan that is very quite.
The same goes for the second fan (if you have one) that is inside the case.
Most computer suppliers have better designed and quiter fans.

Cooling fans compaq nx9010

well usually colling fans in laptops are always on. but i have encountered models that seem to temperature controlled, like the one my brother is using. as for the clearance if you can feel the heat of the laptop coming out from the keyboard, you'll need to atleast put some clearance underneath to properly disperse the heat.

this fan is a variable speed and is controlled by a board in the rear of the unit. your bearings maybe going out. The fan will ramp up to speed depending on the call for cooling the Thermistors is asking for
