Inspiron 1564 faulty fan control

I've an Inspiron 1564 with Core i5-430M, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Ati 5450 VGA and I experienced bad fan control with my notebook.

My CPU's (Core i5 430@1.2GHz) temp. in idle 47-49 °C and the fan is running at 3200RPM (very noisy) w/o using any programs. If I use some apps (ex. Word, Excel, Opera, FireFox) CPU's temp raises to 50-55°C and the fan is spinning up to 4000RPM and unbearably noisy. All of the drivers are latest, and the diagnostics don't show any error. But I think this is abnormal!!

My fan is always works. I think this function cannot be expected. This is an $1000+ machine.

Please DELL fix this horrible faulty fan control!!

Same problem for me also...let's see how many months will take for Dell to release and update for BIOS that will fix this issue.

The A6 version BIOS already removed from download page. I hope it means the new BIOS will be released soon.
