Having a bit of a nightmare after upgrading to 8.1 - the fan is constantly on maximum.
This question and other sources around the net suggest upgrading the AMD driver.
I have upgraded both the graphics drivers as far as I can:
AMD Radeon HD 7600M - v184.108.40.206 Intel HD Graphics 4000 - v10.18.10.3316
and I am still having the issue.
I'm at a lost as to what to do now! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Upgrading the AMD Radeon HD 7600M Series driver to 220.127.116.110 seems to have fixed the issue on startup - however, putting the laptop to sleep and resuming causes the fan to go full speed at all times again.
Additionally I disabled the Discrete Graphics (e.g. the Radeon) in BIOS and this issue still occurs.
SpeedFan does not show the fan so it cannot be adjusted that way.
There are no fan settings in BIOS setup.
I have found this only occurs when waking from sleep - waking from hibernate does not result in high fan speeds... I wonder if this narrows down any debugging of this issue?
Another another update
psshutdown -d -t 0 to put the laptop to sleep whilst in Safe Mode and the issue still occurs.
