I have Windows 7 installed on ProBook 4530S. How can I configure it so that the fan remains always on running?

When the fan stops, the system halts and the screen freezes. I have a dual-boot system on another OS (Unix-based) with the fan always on and don't have a problem.

There will be BIOS settings for this (based on temp) or change under your Advanced (Active) Power Profile the CPU loads/use %'s to all read 100% and you should (might!) find the CPU fan doesn't then throttle/stop.

There is only one setting "Fan Always on When on Power". Shld I update bios? – coure2011 Nov 12 '11 at 6:23
    
What is that setting set to? Updating the BIOS is unlikely to give you additional power settings. – HaydnWVN Nov 14 '11 at 13:14
    
its checked i.e. true – coure2011 Nov 19 '11 at 19:41
    
Any other settings you can see about throttling the CPU? – HaydnWVN Nov 21 '11 at 8:19
