Dumping the contents of the Windows Registry, located at HKLM\HARDWARE\ACPI\DSDT , I can get the DSDT, which I believe is the Differentiated System Description Table. More information about what a DSDT is, here.
Using Microsoft's ASL Compiler, I can transform this binary file into an .asl format. (.asl = ACPI Source Language, which is a text format, readable in notepad.
How do I interpret this thing? Specifically I'd like to know what settings or statements in that file, if any, control the fan-speed-to-cpu-temperature gates. Then I want to modify those settings and reload the DSDT into the registry using, again, the ASL Compiler. I know how to reload it. I just don't know what parts to modify.
Thanks for any hints you can provide.
See also, this blog post for an overview of what I am trying to do. Actually I have done this successfully in the past, see Why is my Compaq nc8430 so darned HOT? .
Now I would like to do something similar, but for an HP G60-244DX.
