Fan Just Races

Postby Gary Puckett » Wed, Oct 28 2009, 8:31AM

Everyone knows I have Vista, so ever since the new web site came up every time I go to it the fan in my system starts running fast. This happens on my 32 bit laptop and my 64 bit desk top. When I close the site down the fan stops racing

Does anyone else have this happening to them ?

Your excitement over getting eCabinets version 6 and Winndows 7 has rubbed off on your PC and its just breathing hard.

Make sure all of your air vents (intake and fan exhaust) are clean. If they get covered with dust it will cause the interior temp to rise and the fan to come on more often.

Gary,

I tried an experiment and I get the same results you found. When I visit the eCabinet Systems Home page, after a few seconds, the fans on my laptop run at full speed. When I leave the eCabinets site , in just a few seconds they idle until I go back to the eCab site. I don't know the cause.

I don't think so. It just means that it is using the processor or the graphics card and the fans are needed to cool them. If the fans didn't come on then you would have problems.

It doesn't happen to me, either on my laptops or desktops (I tried two of each).
