I've recently purchased a new laptop (DELL INSPIRON 1150) but am unhappy with it as I feel the fan comes on excessively. It often comes on every 2 or 3 mins (even when I'm doing nothing on the laptop) and when resuming after standby it's on constantly. DELL have told us that this is normal (after replacing the fan twice) but I don't buy that as my other laptop didn't do this. Can anyone advise what's normal?
Sorry to jump on this Rainbow79, but is there a way we can ragulate the frquency of the fan? because I have a lap top and I don't think mine comes on very frequently and its resulting in my lap top keeps rebooting by itself far too often. I think its due to being too hot.
