Cooling fan control?


The problem I’m having with my laptop are the cooling fans. If it gets too hot in there, they just don’t cool enough, which results in a freezing Windows XP. The only thing I can do is reboot. I can assure you, that’s not funny in the middle of your work.

Anyway, I called the technical support and such, and they’re going to replace the fans for other ones, for free. It’s a common problem with this laptop they say. That’s nice (the free thing), but I’m just not ready yet to leave my laptop there for 5 days. I got work to do first.

So, my question to you guys is: is there a program out there to manually control the speed of the cooling fans? I know this is possible with Unix, but I don’t know about Windows XP…

Thanks in advance!
