Thread: Satellite L500-1C7 - FAN runs at 50%

  1. Satellite L500-1C7 - FAN runs at 50%

    Recently I noticed that my newly acquired Toshiba Satellite Laptop's fan (Windows 7 64 Bit, Pentium T4300) is permanently running at approx. 50% (according to the Toshiba PC Health Monitor), even if there's 0% CPU usage.

    Is this normal?
    Or do I have to change some settings in the BIOS or something?

    I also believe this effect started after a BIOS update which was released by Toshiba a few days ago...

    Thanks in advance

    Did you load the default settings in BIOS after the update?

    Furthermore you can adjust the cooling method in Windows Power Options. There you can set the cooling method for each power profile, for example Maximum Performance or Battery Optimized. I would recommend choosing the Battery Optimized cooling method, itís enough in my opinion and the notebook is more silent.
