    any toshiba fan control thoughts?

    Is your fan maybe running constantly after a few years of use? I have the same and am about to send the laptop in for repair (still on warranty) as I think something with the cooling is broken. Will check first for dust of course by removing the bottom plate.

    any toshiba fan control thoughts?

    I think I probably cracked it. Some appropriate ioctl calls to the driver seems to control the fan!

    any toshiba fan control thoughts?

    Ah, thanks. I was thinking maybe you were accessing the EC directly as there is an information message "found Toshiba embedded controller" when starting Hwinfo, but then I guess this is based on finding the device published by the TVALZ driver instead. I am starting to think my laptop doesn't...

    cpu core temps too high on i7

    You're right. Coretemp shows the same as hwinfo so it's two against one. I'll report to speedfan. I'm really sorry to have wasted your time :-(

    cpu core temps too high on i7

    Hi Martin, I realize that ambient temp will not last for long ;-) This is what I see and the way my reasoning goes: 1) I let the system cool down for several hours in sleep mode with hwinfo and speedfan already open. 2) When waking the system I get readings within a few seconds, and then...

    cpu core temps too high on i7

    Running the latest hwinfo64 on a Toshiba laptop equipped with an Intel i7-4500U cpu, it seems to consistently show cpu core temps that are roughly 15 degrees Celsius too high. The room has an ambient temp of 25 degrees, and on initial startup speedfan reports core temps of 25, while hwinfo...
