Is satellite A500-1DN - possible to adjust the fan speed?

Is it possible to adjust the speed of the fan of this laptop? As I saw in PC Health monitor the fan speed is mainly of 0%, and sometimes it amounts to 70% (on idling) and quite large making noise.
I wish to address is it permanently on.

Is this possible?

I agree with you, I also own a500-1dn and it makes big noise even while surfing Internet. This forum was suggested to update Bios to reduce the fan noise.

    You cannot change fan speed yourself, because there is no option in the Bios. I also tried to change with utilities like a fan speed control utility. But I couldn't stand it. Perhaps, someday they will out of the Bios with support for fan speed control. :)

    While using the laptop the fan comes in for a few seconds and then stops again, which causes the temperature
    increase... what makes the fan?
    Throttle upward rather than stay in a slow to medium status.

    I'm running Vista Business, but I did ' t find the parameters in this regard.

    In the ACPI BIOS is not accessible, but as already posted my problem looks a bit like this:

    Posted the: 13-Sep-2007 22:08 reply

    The fan goes in cycles like this:
    ------------------
    Less than 50, fan
    When > 55, fan to full
    When< 55,="" fan="" on="">
    When< 50,="" fan="" off="">
    and it continues

    ------------------

    It would be much better than when he went to more than 50 years she just spend on bass, then
    It would never reach 55 and never go up.
    And the laptop would be 100 x more silent.

    Another thing: the Germany from Toshiba support page won't load at all or is the global page
    very slow, using different locations and conections. That I can not retrieve all the information to help me.
    And I do not think the University backbone or my DSL 6 Mbps at home is the problem

    Hello

    The fans begin to turn only if a certain temperature point has been reached.
    These fan table information is stored in the BIOS and cannot be changed.

    Some computers laptops satellite supports an additional option in the Toshiba HWSetup. It allows to change the CPU dynamically switchable or always low frequency mode.
    This would set the temperature to a lower level and the fans would lead occasionally.

    In any case, to my knowledge, this option is not available in the Toshiba HWSetup and not in the BIOS so I guess that it s not possible to control fan behavior.

    By the way; If you wish, you can test a tool like aSpeedFanfreeware.
    This program can control the speed of the fans according to the temperatures of the system.
    Maybe it will work on your Satellite Pro U300

    Good bye

  • automatically change the fan speed depending on the temperature.

    I wish I could for my computer automatically adjust the fan speed depending on the temperature. I don't think he does in itself because the speed never changes.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Hello joshblacher,

    There is a sensor on your motherboard, which changes the fan speed according to the room temperature. As much as I know there is no way to do otherwise, I'm afraid.

  • Is it possible to adjust the CPU fan after replacing the CPU - Satellite L35 - S21?

    I have a Toshiba Satellite L35-S2161. It was initially equipped with a Celeron M 410. Last weekend, I replaced the Celeron with a Pentium Core Duo T2250. Everything works fine. Now, both the Celeron and Pentium seem to run a bit hot.

    The beach of temp for both are exactly the same. Honer time between Celcius 55 to 62 degrees Celsius.

    Is it possible to set the fan to maintain a temperature between 50 to 55 degrees? If so, how?

    Check this http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/FAQ7A01ZW0007R01.htm

    -It is uncertain whether the new processor is compatible to the system board. Integrated chipsets can take charge of their technical specifications a wide range of processors, but this does not mean that all types of CPU can be used in a mobile system for * integrated cooling systems are designed individually for each set of model in order to ensure the optimal functioning of the machine *. An incorrect CPU can cause the system to overheat and damage the internal system components.

    -In most cases, the BIOS does not work with the replaced CPU which causes a malfunction of the machine. The BIOS needs to be rewritten after each Exchange of a CPU that can only be done by an authorized Toshiba service partner.

  • Satellite A500-1DN - crashing everything by playing games

    Hi all

    About 2 months ago, my friend bought a Toshiba satellite A500-1DN. After about 2 weeks, she decided to put 2 games on it (guildwars and jedi knight academy). We quickly realized that after about 1 hour of playing, the computer would crash to a black screen, rather than return to a blue screen of death. That meant there was no indication of what was causing the problem specifically and no dumps mini windows...
    Having trouble with these specific games myself on Windows 7, I thought about the games.

    A week later, she spent an hour watching videos to youtube to see his computer crashed in the same way as the game. So I put some on the computer diagnostic software. CPU / GPU overheating? But nothing, the temperatures are stable and supported and certainly wouldn t have been the cause of these accidents, unless I unfortunately missed the point where he did more heat cache-shoulders so I not outrule not he...
    Because of the problem it seems to be up to now video related, I downloaded the new nvidia drivers (unfortunately the official ones didn't work and I had to search a custom .inf file). It does not solve the problem, but the driver seemed to work adequately well.

    In our anger, we have sent it back stating that it would be cooling the laptop, that is to say of copper was not sufficient for the graphics card and Toshiba said they had cleaned up the computer until replaced thermal paste, typical stuff all... which seems very fair. We returned it. We played a game and it crashed within 10 minutes. Perhaps even worse than when he left.

    Is there anything that could cause this problem - video related activities causing crash computer without going to the BSOD or return specific errors. What is RAM? I even uninstalled protection HDD thinking it could be the source of compatibility problems.

    I need advice.

    The spec is:
    Intel core 2 DUO T6600 CPU 2.20 GHz processor
    NVIDIA Geforce GT 230M
    4 GB OF RAM

    Hello

    This only happens if you play games or Surf Internet, office, etc.. ?

    The games aren't supposed to, but if they are a bit older, they are not compatible with Windows 7 maybe. Did you check that?
    Also look for a patch for the games. You can get it on the site of the factory.

    In addition, it would be interesting to know what you get exactly the code bluescreen. For the most part the stop codes you can find more information on Microsoft Knowledge Base.

    In most cases these bluescreens correspond to the drivers or hardware. If all Toshiba drivers are installed, check the RAM with Memtest86 diagnostic tool.

    Good luck! :)

  • Is it possible to adjust the sound volume of Windows to more than 100%?

    Hello

    I have a very simple question:

    Is it possible to adjust the sound volume of Windows to more than 100%?

    I explain why I need to do this:
    I can watch DVD files or .avi with my computer and VLC, that allows to adjust the volume to 100%. Some DVDs have a very low sound. So if I set VLC to 200% volume and the system volume to 100%, I can watch movies in good sound conditions. Then, my computer speakers are strong enough for me watching a movie.

    However, I have a problem with VSD: I use VOD with Windows media player and that player does not allow me to adjust the sound to more than 100%. So I put the sound of Windows media player at 100%, the sound of Windows to 100%, but the sound is very low.

    Please don't tell me to buy speakers, mine are pretty strong, and I find it uncomfortable to plug the speakers.

    Please don't tell me to use a software that increase the volume of the file I want to watch VOD.

    Is there a way to increase the sound volume of Windows to more than 100%?

    Please don t tell me this, please don t tell me that. You want to hear other people's opinions or what?

    AFAIK all sound level settings in Windows are synchronized and if you change the sound level in the properties of the speaker at the same level will appear in the Windows for the Volume Mobility Center and the maximum level is 100%. No more than that.

    As you already wrote the sound level can be increased in combination with Windows and some players.

    Is there any other way to watch these videos, but using WMP?

    If it's a desktop monitor, there should be buttons on the monitor to do this. I found this a useful tool, you can set a different brightness for the display of day and night. However, you can also just use it to quickly adjust the brightness at any time.

  • ? Flash CS4, it is possible to adjust the length of several timelines at the same time?

    Hello

    I'm using Flash CS4. Is it possible to adjust the length of several timelines at the same time? I do an animation of the leaves that fall from the tree. The only leaves 17 separate calendars on separate layers and each has its own guide layer.

    If I had the opportunity to select all the chronologies set and adjust all their respective time start and end at the same time even, compared to the other, but also separately, life would be so much easier!

    Of course I can do timeline timeline, no problem, but I can't adjust the length in addition to a scenario at a time. (no pun intended)

    Even when I select more than one timeline, the double arrow only adjusts the length of a timeline. Even each layer guide must be set separately. I understand the benefit of this, but, timing tests and make adjustments would be so much easier and go a lot faster if I could select and drag several lengths of timeline at the same time.

    Is it possible to do this?

    I am new to Flash, thank you for your patience with me!
