Do you just want the fan to not run as often?

If you securely connect to fix does that cost more?

no thanks, ***** ***** advice please.
Tech Support Specialist: Specialist Sean S., Computer Support Specialist replied 7 months ago

Yes it does, but I think I can help resolve this over this chat. So to fix this, you'll want get into the BIOS (which the option is on the screen the moment you turn on the PC). From there, there should be something called MONITOR (it might vary based on model), and it will give you an option to adjust the fans!

ASUS might call it CPU Q-FAN CONTROL.....you can change the limits there (example: 200 RPM)

Sean, just eed about fan continuously running on Asus notebook x200ca, got into bios but monitor doesn't show a fan option as far as I can see.
Tech Support Specialist: Specialist Sean S., Computer Support Specialist replied 7 months ago

What options do you see? There should usually be a tab that would control something for the fans. The problem is it's called something differnet for every computer model. It might be Power or something else. It should also be an ASUS screen as well

Sean, I never did find anyplace to adjust the fan. For $47 dollars I would rather you'd just taken over and fixed it. Thanks anyway.
Tech Support Specialist: Specialist Sean S., Computer Support Specialist replied 6 months ago

I understand and am happy to help if you would like to continue troubleshooting. There's also ASUS applications that you can install as well that might be able to slow down the fan speed. However, be aware too that the fans usually run fast when something isn't working right such as the processor is overheating or the fans are losing power over time.

Let me know if you have any other concerns or questions about this and I'll be happy to help. Please also remember to rate my service using the stars when you get a chance. Thanks!

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
