I am having troubles with the fan...it's on almost all the times...and it is quite anoying...
I have another older laptop which is totally silent and this new Dell 1564 bought 3 days ago makes much more noise...
I've read many topics with the same problem.
When will Dell fix this issue which seems to be BIOS related?
PLEASE SOMEBODY ANSWER!
I've the same problem.
My CPU's (Core i5 firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz) temp. in idle 47-49 °C and the fan is running at 3200RPM (very noisy) w/o using any programs. If I use some apps (ex. Word, Excel, Opera, FireFox) CPU's temp raises to 50-55°C and the fan is spinning up to 4000RPM and unbearably noisy. This is abnormal!!
My fan is always works. I think this function cannot be expected. This is an $1000+ machine.
Please DELL fix this horrible faulty fan control!!
Same problem here... very annoying
yes same problem as well the fan goes on off, on of,f on off, only had it 4 days but was fine untill today
I had a 1564 with i3 CPU and here is the output from dmidecode on linux.
My fan keeps working all the time.
Does anything change with the new BIOS versions? As you can see mine is A05
BIOS Information Vendor: Dell Inc. Version: A05 Release Date: 02/09/2010 Address: 0xE2C30 Runtime Size: 119760 bytes ROM Size: 2048 kB Characteristics:
I've upgraded my BIOS to A11 and still nothing changes.
