    Fan running too fast


    Like the title says, i have a problem with one of my fans (yes, only one fan out of 2...only the one on the gpu's side) running too fast. The noise is very annoying. I am currently using Backtrack 5 (with KDE), but i also had the same problem under arch and debian. Here are some parts of the result returned by the lshw command:

    And here is the entire result of the sensors command:

    Tell me if you need more infos.

    Hi,

    Please do default package selection. If you had customized packages. Because unnecessary applications run/consume your laptop peripherals(H/W), like mem, cpu and battery(if it does not run with AC volt ) .

    Thank you for the suggestion, but i don't think this is the problem, since i just installed backtrack 5, with the default configuration. I did not modify any package. I also used archlinux for about 6 month, and i had the same problem. I always tried to keep my arch installation as light as possible, and i still had the fan problem. Got any other ideas?

    Solved: I installed the ati proprietary driver and the problem is gone
