hello I have an alienware 17 R2 2015 model I have read multiple threads that fan control tables are not good in the bios and the temperatures may be dangerously high as fan is not working as it should so hwinfo should be used to set fan speed to higher speeds.... however I cannot seem to start the fan control panel I have several different versions and clicked on the fan icon in the sensors tab but nothing starts up nothing at all happens....please help just recently received my laptop 1 week almost from newegg don't want it to end up fried....
Please attach the HWiNFO Debug File (make sure to click the fan icon while creating the DBG file) and attach it here. I'll check it.
thanks a lot for your very quick reply
can you please guide me how do I create a debug while clicking fan icon...
Thanks for the files.
This model is currently not supported for fan control, but I'll try to add support in the next Beta released. Though I'm not sure whether it will work properly, the firmware might be different there.
Please try the new v5.03-2595 Beta and let me know if/how it works.
On some Alienware models it's only possible to control all fans at once.
How many fan speeds do you see reported (in the sensors window) ?
Is the CPU fan reported ?
