Question about HP Compaq Presario SR1503wm PC Desktop
My Compaq Presario SR2172NX desktop fan keep running constanly. What to do to correctly this problem?
Its good to keep like that since PCs need cooling regularly. Not like laptops. Laptops are designed based on architectures which provides cooling internally. Using copper pipes is an example. Anyway there are ways to control the fan speed. Before that check which fan that runs constantly. There are several fans in a system unit. Such as CPU fan, Graphic controller fan, chassis fan, extra coolers.
First thing is that you have to adjust your power scheme.
Go to control panel and then power options. Select appropriate settings.
If you use Vista as the OS this is a common problem since its visual effects eat the cpu. Specially that side bar and other things and drivers.
Check whether you have a process which is using 100% cpu using task manager. (Processes tab in task manager). If so either you have to stop it or terminate it of its a hanged program.
There are options to control the fan speed in your bios. Check the bios. To enter bios you can use one of these keys. Del, F2, F10 or Esc. One will let you in. Check the fan options and specially for a QFan option. You have to adjust the settings to control the fan. Finally there are hardware controllers which controls the fan speed near the fan (built in to the fan or near the fan's plug on the mother board). You can adjust them if you need to.
