Another fan on start up thread help.

i stupidly updated my hwinfo64 and now fans wont activate on start up unless i open the fan tab in sensors. here are my settings.


I also did the OpenFanCrtlMin=1 .ini edit. any ideas if what i jacked up? thanks.

been tinkering for hours and the fans still wont spin on start up, proof of ini edit


ANY input would be greatly appreciated, pc unusable without this.

You INI option contains a typo ;)
It should be OpenFanCtrlMin, instead of OpenFanCrtlMin
Thanks nonetheless for your post. Also new to HWiNFO64, but the only trouble I had at all was finding immediately that I had no way to configure HWiNFO64 to control my fans automatically at startup. One quick visit here solved this issue. I'm sure it's been suggested to do something like feature a checkbox in the Fan Control window to provide the option to automatically apply the fan control schemes at (automated) startup. Great software. It's the only application I found that would even recognize the fan controllers on our new, under-cooled Dell Inspiron 5680. With the OpenFanCtrlMin=1 tweak, we had ideal fan behavior and cooling in no time... for the first time.
