Probook 4530s - Fan always on...

Hi there

My Probook 4530s fan is always on 105%. (plugged in or on battery power).

I've read a lot of the message boards and there are unofficial fixes (HP Fan Control, TPFC, etc).  But none of them work for me.  I've also had the fan replaced with a new one from HP parts store.  

 

I've set the BIOS correctly (Fan not automatically on with AC Power)
Fan always runs at 105% no matter the temp

Starts at 105% as soon as I turn it on

What do I do? Is this a known problem with my motherboard?  Is there a way to fix it without replacing the board?

 

thanks again for your time and attention!

Peter

Re: Probook 4530s - Fan always on...

I know that you have set the correct setting in BIOS but have you tried doing the Reset Defaults in the Bios?  This may fix the issue.  Otherwise you are correct it is with the motherboard and if all HP's troubleshooting has not worked then it would require a systemboard replacement.

Thanks for the advice and insight!
I just reset the defaults in the bios and unfortunately it didn't work.
I have the latest bios F28.
I also rebooted again and unchecked the Fan always on with AC
I guess the motherboard is the problem then... unless there are other suggestions.

Great forum!

With all the troubleshooting you have done at this point it does point to a problem with the harware, specifically the systemboard.
