    I need a program that will control the speed of a CPU fan in a laptop running W10. SpeedFan says it's compatible with W10, but I'm finding that it's not. It keeps going to (Not Responding).

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    SpeedFan is the only program I have ever used, Tony.
    Have you tried running it in Compatibility mode?
    Are you sure that you have the most recent version of the software?

    Haven't tried Compatibility mode before now. Thanks to your comment, I tried it in W7 mode. Seems to run now.
    I downloaded it yesterday. It's version 2.16.

    Anyway, now that's it's running, I don't see that I can control the speed of the fan in this ASUS CN2960. Customer brought it in because the fan was making a noise like a lawn mower. I reseated the fan and want to crank up the speed to ensure that my fix worked. I let the machine run for an hour and haven't heard the fan. So either my hearing is bad or the fan hasn't kicked in or my fix worked. I'm going with that last thought.

    Have you checked to make sure that there isn't some type of Asus fan control software already installed, Tony?
    They could be working against each other.
    Just a thought......

    I don't see an ASUS fan control there. I think it's good to go. Thanks Cindy.
