just want to add this:
there are lot of other fault parameters reported in hwinfo, which the user just disables,
so why not let the user select, if he wants to display a certain fan or not.
yes i know that,
but in this case the fan delivers values over a certain threshold.
so if this happens once, hwinfo could allow this fan to be displayed from now on even if it displays zero from time to time.
imagine a fan controler, that enables / disables a fan, say it does not tune...
but the fan is not displayed all time.
it appears, disappears and nobody knows why.
why not just display the fan all the time.
if the fan does not display the right values, the user may disable it.
this is what i mean.
also, if hwinfo reports zero, may be this is...
it seems, that hwinfo cannot read the speed under a certain value.
if the fan runs faster, hwinfo reads the value fine.
may be i should wait until the fan runs faster and send you a debug file with theses readings.
now i know.
cause the fan was there before showing zero for minimum, zero for current and another 2000 value for max.
i heared that the fan was running and wondered why hwinfo reported zero for current.
i wanted to ask you why.
so today i looked into again and did not find the...
thank you, martin,
i also thought this.
if i uninstall rst,
i get instead automaticly intalled by windows 7:
intel 5 series/3400 Series Chipset Family 6 port sata ahci controller
is this, what you mean with "standard ahci" ?
thanks for the advice.
i'm really not sure, if RST is essential for this labtop.
on my other intel computers i had to use it, otherwise the partitions would always swap and have other drive letters depending of the boot.
i do not have this issue on the laptop.
if i run it without RST...
so what do you recommend to do?
is this only for this specific driver version?
cause i have no problems on my other computers using RST, it's even a must on these Intel machines.
atleast this specific version you proposed won't run on my Latitude successfully.
thanks for your advice...
may be you overread this:
the problem in HWINFO concerning the wrong smart parameter appears also,
if NO Intel RST is installed.
i have checked this out, cause i unstalled it.
so the problem CANNOT come from the Intel RST.
i don't think this is the solution.
if i install the other driver you recommended, booting the labtop takes much longer.
also the sata device appears like an scsi device.
dell does not recommend any update for this driver.
also this version runs smooth without any problems...
