Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 672429
Fan runs constantly at high speed on Dell Studio 1558
Last modified: 2013-01-10 01:25:36 EST
Description of problem: After installing Fedora 14 on a new Dell Studio 1558 laptop, the fan runs at high speed all the time. When I boot on windows, the fan only runs when needed to cool the cpu but on Fedora it runs on high even when the CPU is idle. I can't find any utility or dialog to configure the fan.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a Dell Studio 1558
2. Install Fedora
Fan runs on high constantly, making noise and shortening fan life
Fan is quiet unless needed
I've upgraded to latest bios available from Dell. Fan works normally when I boot on Windows 7
