Big fan of the thinkpad series. thought I would get the essential one for secondary machine. Fan noise is really loud. Its constant. As soon as I log in to window. I don't know how to change it or go into the bios. Would rather not mess with the CPU because I need the power. Please advise.

this thread did not help me at all, i already saw it. Im not messing with third party complicated cpu modifers when the laptop should be ok on day 1. any ideas, other than returning or sending in the laptop for repair?

same problem here. Fan running full tilt within a minute of loading into windows... cool air coming out the side.
Ran the utility speedfan and the temps are nothing crazy... nothing over 40 degrees.
I have reinstalled the latest bios (which was released in June of this year... 1.05) and reinstalled the power management software. Didn't help.
