Hi @NobodyGR

 

Fans are automatically adjusted with the BIOS Fan table for optimum performance. This is not an issue with the system that requires repair. Now, if you want to customize it, there are 3rd party apps that can do that for you. SpeedFan, HWInfo, etc.

hello 

thanks for your answer.

What to you mean with "This is not an issue with the system that requires repair."

Do i need hardware repair or software (format or any update)?

No, no repair or software update needed. There is no issue with the system. That is just the way it works.

But if you want to control the fans manually, you can use the 3rd party apps I posted before.

Re: 15 R4, GPU fan spins up and down

hi again the problem is continues until today every day the gpu fan starts spins up and down for longer time and more often. I format my laptop and still the same problem. I am not sure if you understand my problem exactly. The problem is the gpu fan start spinning up and down from 36% to 83% every 1-2 seconds for 4-5 minutes when the gpu temprature is 50-60 °C and when this happens after the 4-5 minutesof spinning up and down gpu fan works normaly for 10-15 minutes and after that is starts again spinning up and down and the same problem continues all day. The only time when i do not have any problem is when i am playing games that requires the gpu fan runs at 100%. what can i do to stop that?

Hello, 

Try uninstalling the Command Center software that you are currently using, and install the latest version from this link. You can uninstall the software from the "Apps & Features" window. After doing this, test to confirm if the GPU fan is still doing the same thing.
