    noapic makes fans run loud

    Hi all,
    I have Dell studio 1555 laptop and I managed to make the Fn keys to work.
    I did it by adding the "noapic" to the "menu.lst" file.
    Since then I noticed that the fan(s) runs pretty loud.
    Before that the fans was quiet on some of the times.

    1. I want to ask if the mod that I did can harm my laptop?
    2. Is this mod will empty my battery faster?
    3. Is there a way to activate the Fn keys without changing power management?

    Hope you have answers for me!

    Hi all,
    It seems today that the fans run normally.
    Sorry for posting before checking for a few days.
    Thank you all.
