How do I configure Speedfan?

[ Edited ]



I am asking for help with this program for a Sony Vaio desktop.


The fans have been running high for no apparent reason.  Just playing solitaire would cause the fan RPM to go to maximum.


I downloaded and installed Speedfan, and the problem is worse.  I do nothing and the fans take off as soon as a start the computer.


I Googled how to configure Speedfan, and the instructions are esoteric to me.


Can anyone give some simple instructions how to configure Speedfan?



I know I have to go into advanced, but it does not allow me to select "Manual" like I have seen in tutorials. Default is Auto, and the drop down menu option is "Software"
