View Full Version : [all variants] acer aspire 9503 - fan always running

November 3rd, 2011, 10:33 PM
The fan on my aspire 9503 is always running, after installing lubuntu 11.10 . I tried loading the acerhdf module, but i get errors.

sudo modprobe acerhdf
FATAL: Error inserting acerhdf (/lib/modules/3.0.0-12-generic/kernel/drivers/platform/x86/acerhdf.ko): Invalid argument

islandjoe@islandjoe-Aspire-9500:~$ sudo echo -n "enabled" > /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/mode
bash: /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/mode: No such file or directory

Can anybody suggest how I can get the fan to only activate when under load. The computer is cold, but it's damn annoying. It sounds like an aircraft preparing for takeoff.

solved, flashing the bios fixed the issue...
