fan speed and frequency of use

Hi,

Just wondering if there are some ways to reduce the fan speed and frequency of it coming on. I realize that labor intensive programs will make the fan run more often --- but I find that even when I am not running labor intensive programs the fan is running constantly on my new x201. 

Thanks

Re: fan speed and frequency of use

This problem is resolved. Don't remember how exactly. Check to make sure that your computer isn't running any programs in the background.

Re: fan speed and frequency of use

Hello,

thank you for your answer. There is no program running in the background, any advice? The fan is new and the laptop was cleaned. I have the problem using both windows and linux.

Thank you.
