Heyas, I have an HP pavillion dv9000 laptop running windows XP SP 2, with all drivers up to date as far as I know, and I've recently noticed that my fan has stopped running. I searched for other posts and found a similar one which referred me to Speed Fan, and if I go to Configure, under the fans tab, no fans are showing up.

My laptop still is under warranty, but every time it gets sent off they end up reloaded, which is quite a pain considering the amount of software I have on here. If at all possible, I'd like to be able to fix the fan so it automatically runs, manually control it, or find a solution that doesn't involve me sending off my laptop for the three or four weeks it takes HP to fix it...

SpeedFan may not help in controlling your fan, not in laptops AFAIK. what it can do is to monitor your temps. with SpeedFan program installed, you can monitor the temperatures of the CPU. if the fan is not running, you will notice a rise in temperature in fact, your system will be shutting off before you know it.
