How can increase the speed of the fan on my Lenovo Thinkpad t510 running Windows 7?

Is there any software or script that helps me with this?

Why do you think you should increase it? –  Serge Oct 2 '12 at 21:38
    
I'm guessing based on his tags that his system is overheating. Have you dusted out the system with a can of air yet? Laptops are very susceptible to insulation by way of dust because of their compact nature. I'd blow out the fan, heatsink and vents first. –  MaQleod Oct 2 '12 at 23:14

Fan control on laptops is somewhat rare and requires custom software (speedfan is mostly for desktops).

Try TP fan control www.rkostadi.org/main/?p=46

you can also try the advanced settings of windows 7 power profiles , but this rarely does much in my experience.
