My laptop fans kicking in full power mode with no reasons

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Hello guys,

I am facing an issue with my Windows 8 laptop. This is a MSI GT70 laptop which is best for gaming. The issue is my laptop fan. It keeps on running at its best even if I am not doing any massive tasks. This started after playing Splinter Cell: Blacklist. The game crashes and I was force to reboot my laptop which seems to be very usual for Windows 8 PC. After the reboot, I was redirected to the BIOS screen which I think is in Safe Mode. But I am not really sure since I haven't seen that screen before.

All I remember is that there is the admin password, save setup and exit, or load the default setup. There are some tabs where I can switch. But since I am not sure what to choose, I just shut it down. After another restart, my laptop starts normally but the fan is on its max speed. I think this is an issue with my graphic card. I attempted to start some games again and it lags and the mouse cursor moves slowly while playing. I installed the Core Temp software and checked on the temp of my computer. It rises up to 58 degree Celcius and the entire core remains around 36- 41 degree Celcius which is just normal. On my Task Manager, there are no other programs or application running. The processor usage is playing between 3-5%. So technically, I cannot find any reason why my laptop fan is running at its best. By the way, the graphic card I am using is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M  with 2GB GDDR5.

Please send me some help on this. Thank you.

My laptop fans kicking in full power mode with no reasons


Laptop fans never kick on with no reason. There purpose is to regulate the temperature of components inside, chiefly the CPU (central processing unit), GPU (graphics processing unit) and NIC (network interface card), among others. Your laptop monitors the workload that your CPU/GPU is under, and uses the fan to cool them down. Open the task manager, and exit any processes or applications you are not using. Also, remove any startup programs that you could live without running all the time. Restart your laptop more often, and run an anti-virus scan. Defrag your hard disks as well. These simple preventative measures can work wonders on an over worked CPU.
