    Default Fan constantly running at full speed in windows 8

    Hi, all

    coming here for some help because you guys have just fixed all my problems in the past.

    This time my notebook makes much more fan noise than under windows 7 and i installed windows 8 beta last week. and whenever i watch a movie on line the fan is running at full speed.

    Does anyone know what could be causing this? any help would be highly appreciated.

    Hi,

    If you have a non integrated video card (No idea what the term for that is), try accessing the setup for it (Nvidia offers the "Nvidia control panel") and checking the fan settings - it may be set to max.

    If this does not work, try entering your BIOS and checking the settings.

    It MAY be happening because Windows 8 requires more out of your PC than windows 7 (Which I assume you upgraded from, based on your OS information), so it's attempting to cool it down.
