Apple :: Controlling Fan Speed In Windows

Dec 28, 2009

with a native Windows boot... has anyone found a good option for controlling the fan speed?

Right now I have to set a minimum speed in SMCfancontrol and reboot...

The only two options I know of to control fan speeds in Windows is..

Input Remapper: Never worked for me... Vista or Windows 7... it freezes and causes all kinds of problems with the machine no matter what I do.

Lubbo's Fan Control: doesn't work, just gives me and error that it can't load the IO driver. I read that it currently doesn't work right with Bootcamp 3, and to kill bootcamp.exe in order to run it... but that doesn't help either, still the same IO error and it launches and cant detect fans or temps. is there something else out there anyone has tried... or know how to get around the issues with these other two?

Apple :: Mac Boot-up Between Windows -OSX Speed

Mar 2, 2009

I purchased a used macbook pro 2.6 a couple of weeks ago from ebay and it had a screen problem, IMO> anyway I sent it back and got a refund, I just purchased a NEW 2.66 MHz and I'm expecting it at the end of the week, I was impressed how the first mac booted up so fast with OSX so my question is if I had windows XP dual booting would it boot to the windows as fast as it did with the OSX or will the anti-virus slow it down ?

HP/Compaq :: Controlling Fan Speeds OnLaptop

Jan 3, 2010

My HP dv7-3079wm gets fairly hot under normal conditions, between 55C-65C. I should be getting a cooling pad for it soon, but I was wondering if theres a way to control the fan speeds? Once it hits about 60C the fan speeds up and cools it down to about 55C and then slows again. Speedfan doesn't show any fans, though I use it to monitor my temps in my taskbar. So, does anyone know if theres another way to control fan speeds? Or a way to get SpeedFan to detect mine? And I even have the back propped up a little to help it ventilate better...

Apple :: Superdrive Read Speed

Mar 5, 2009

I'm recently doing a lot of video editing stuff so...

I burned a video file to a CD and tried to play it off the CD to test it, but the read speed is so slow that it keeps on lagging. And when I try to copy the file back to disk (me and my paranoid testing), it also says its gonna take like 2 minutes even though its only ~160MB.

And when I'm importing a CD into iTunes, it won't go much faster than like 8x.

Is this normal? I'm plugged into the wall if that makes any difference. I ask especially because the rated read speed according to the Apple website is 24x.

Apple :: MacBook - Fan Speed Just Go Up To As High As 5k While I'm Surfing The Web

Mar 25, 2009

My MacBook has been acting weird lately. Its fan speeds just go up to as high as 5k while I'm surfing the web (Firefox), 3k on average. No embedded flash videos, etc. I've searched the net for solutions and none of them work for me. I tried checking my Activity Monitor, and the app that uses the highest CPU % is Firefox at 12% at most. I happened to see Quicksilver go up to 97% for a second then it disappeared. I tried looking for any hidden Print Jobs but I had none. I have 1 stuck process according to Terminal, but that's basically it. I have a 2.4ghz white MacBook, 10.5.6.

Apple :: MBP - Increased Fan Speed With Software Update

May 15, 2009

I recently updated my MBP with the newest patch and im getting higher cpu temps by just doing my usual web surfing and itunes. I see the cpu raise and my fans will kick on well above 2000 rpm. Before this my computer would normally be stable around 1999-2000 rpm. I can clearly tell by just typing that my mbp is runing hotter.

Apple :: Home-Made Cooling Pad With Speed Control

Feb 18, 2009

well last night and this morning i was busy making my self a home made cooling pad, with some crap laying around the house. I don't know if there is already one but i'll put this one up. I will upload pictures tomorrow. The total project was about 1 hour and cost less than $10. It also has a speed control which is cool (it is built on my ac/dc adapter so you will make yours). My mother-tongue is not English but French, so excuse the words i might use or not use. Also their are some tools i couldn't translate the name, but when pics are up I'm sure you will know..................

Apple :: MacBook Pro 17" (Core I7-620M + GT330M) And RAM Speed

Apr 26, 2010

I've finally got my MacBook Pro 17" specced with Glossy screen, Core i7-620M and GeForce GT330M fully up and running!

I've been replacing the 5400RPM 500GB hard drive with a Intel X25-M 80GB Gen2, along with replaced the 2x 2GB 1066MHz RAM with a pair of nice Kingston 1600MHz @ CL7 2x 2GB ones.

is the fact that Windows7 computer rating tells me that my RAM is the slowest hardware in my machine? So I was checking it's settings, and the MacBook Pro keeps them at 1066MHz @ CL8?

Which is insane considering the potential of these Kingston memory modules!
Is there no way (as there obviously is no BIOS to deal with on Mac hardware) to somehow improve the memory settings?

Sony :: Vaio Z Stamina/Speed Switch In Windows 7

Does any else have this feature working under Windows 7?

I have everything functioning (incl. FN brightness and volume controls) in my partitioned install except this.

I have the switch itself set to "Stamina" but neither mode even brings up the little green light beside it. It is completely unresponsive.

Sony :: Windows 7 Beta 7000 On A Zbrightness- In Speed Mode

Jan 14, 2009

I can't seem to change the brightness level in Speed Mode, be it through Fn keys or Power Option on the laptop. I've tried disabling UAC and running VESMgr.exe and VESMgrSub.exe as administrators. And still can't alter the brightness level. Everything else works, just the brightness option won't work in Speed Mode. Stamina Mode works flawlessly, giving me the option the change the brightness level how I want.

HP Pavilion G6 2241sa Networking :: Internet Speed Went Down After Installing Windows 8.1

Apr 3, 2013

I've installed Windows 8.1 on my laptop HP Pavilion G6 2241sa. Everything is perfect, I downloaded all drivers, internet works fine BUT I've noticed that the speed of my broadband after few minutes goes down by 80%. My broadband speed is 30meg down/30 megs up. Download speed reduces to 2-3megs but upload speed remains the same... 
 
My network card (shown in device manager) is Qualcom Atheros AR9485 802.11b/g/n wifi adapter. When I uninstall it, Windows automatically detects it and installs it back. Internet speed returns to normal but after few minutes or maybe 10-12 minutes speed again goes down, up speed is unchanged... I deleted it 10 times, all the same, tried to reinstall all ralink drivers found for Win 8 or Win8.1, but Windows says that I have the perfect driver and doesn't install anything else. I removed antivirus just in case, doesn't work. I checked the speed on other computer - no issues there, but on my laptop it persists. On Windows 7 i didn't have this problem, it started after putting Win 8.1.

Sony :: Vaio SZ440ARGH! Speed Mode Brightness Controls In Windows 7 (x64)

Nov 9, 2009

just can't seem to get my Brightness controls to work in speed mode in windows 7.

I've tried 169.09, 180.70 and the most recent forceware drivers.

I've installed the registry file that was recommended in one thread.
I've tried all kinds of orders. Still, nothing.

I've currently installed (in this order)
SPEF
SonyPI
Shared Library
SonyUtils DLL
Event Service
The Registry Patch
NVIDIA Drivers

They work fine in STAMINA, but not in SPEED. I can't even access them through Windows Mobility Center or Power Options. I can change them a very small amount though the NVIDIA control panel through the "adjust color settings" tab. Otherwise, theres no mobility options in the NVIDIA panel.

Dell Inspiron 5720 :: Wireless Network Speed Is Slower Than Maximum In Windows 7

Mar 5, 2013

I have a Dell Inspirion 5520 that has Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230 built in.Also I have a TP link TL-WR740N wireless router.I have an 80Mbps/25MBps internet connection.My Speedtest result with no router:When I connect all these via an Ethernet cable, I get the maximum even through the router:But when I try to do the same with WiFi I get 30/20 Maximum speed, and I'm sitting next to router!I have this configuration:*router:* -

Channel: auto - Mode: 11n only - Channel width: 40Mhz - Max Tx rate: 150Mbps - Enabled Wireless Router Radio - Enabled SSID Broadcast - Security: WPA- AES - Beacon Interval : 100 - RTS Threshold: 2346 - Fragmentation Threshold: 2346 - DTIM Interval: 1 - Enabled WMM - Enabled Short GI *Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230:* - 802.11n Channel width for band 2.4 : Auto - 802.11n Mode: enabled - Ad Hoc Channel 802.11b/g: 1 - Ad Hoc QoS Mode: WMM enabled - Bluetooth(R) AMP: Enabled - Fat Channel Intolerant: Disabled - Mixed Mode Protection: CTS-to-self Enabled- Roaming Aggressiveness: 3.

do get the fact that speed through wireless is slower than with wire, but losing 50Mbps is a bit too much!

Dell :: Memory Speed Affecting Windows Experience (memory Operations)

Oct 13, 2008

A friend just showed me his new Dell Vostro lappy. He has 4 GB of DDR2 800mhz memory on it when compared to my 4 GB of DDR2 667mhz memory on my XPS 1530

However, under his windows experience score - he gets 5.9 score for memory operations while I just get a 5.1. I can't believe that a couple of hundred mhz can result in such a drastic difference.

Is there something optimized for his system but not for mine?

Apple :: 13" MacBook Pro - 15" MacBook Pro - Processor Speed

Dec 1, 2009

equipping 2 machines:

1-a 13" MacBook Pro, primary use will be Internet and e-mail and manipulating music files. Will my husband really notice a difference/benefit between the basic 2.26 and the 2.53GHZ (and is it worth about $250 more)? If he uses it for video downloading will that make a difference?

2- a 15" MacBook Pro- here I'm debating between the 2.66 and 2.8. My daughter uses it for Office apps, PhotoShop, music, Internet and e-mail. Again, would video downloading make a difference?

Apple :: Windows On A Mac - Windows XP Pro SP3 V Windows Vista Ultimate SP2

For those that use Windows on your Mac's, which version do you recommend? I'm thinking, what's best for battery life, performance etc..

I have a copy of Windows XP Pro SP3 and Windows Vista Ultimate SP2. I'm tempted to go with XP for simplicity, and the fact that it has equal compatibility and a shed load less intrusive DRM.

Apple :: Bootcamp 3.0 - Windows XP Or Windows 7

Sep 5, 2009

So since Bootcamp 3.0 is out what's more sensible to use; XP or seven? I know originally, Bootcamp was written for Windows XP and everyone (Forumers) said Bootcamp will work best with Windows XP even after Vista came out. I've read Bootcamp 1.2 was released so that all the Apple hardware components would work with Vista (AKA driver updates).

Now since bootcamp 3.0 is out; Will it be worth while to upgrade to windows 7? In other terms, will Seven give me better battery power opposed to bootcamping in XP? Whether it's facts or speculation; Is Bootcamp 3.0 set better to work with windows 7? OR is is like the Bootcamp 1.2; Did Apple release 3.0 so that apple hardware will be compatible with Windows Seven (driver updates)? and I do know the final version of seven isn't out but I don't think it will differ much from the release candidate kernal (correct me if I am wrong). Thanks and sorry if my wording confuses you, been working all day.

HP/Compaq :: DV4 & 5t Speed

Jan 7, 2009

I bought a pretty basic DV4t for my daughter for Christmas. Did a fresh Vista 32 install and everything is working nicely as advertised. However, when I check through CPU-Z (v1.49) it only indicates a down clock to 1595Mhz. The Vista CPU meter gadget though shows one processor at or near 0 at idle with the second at about 28%. I also have a DV2700tv in the house, also with a fresh Vista install, and it down clocks to 800Mhz.

CTO Specs are:
DV4t, P7350, 4GB ram, 160GB HD, Webcam, 802.11n w/Bluetooth, Lightscribe,12 Cell, BIOS F.24 (factory).

Unlike AMD systems, my understanding is that there is no driver required like there is for AMD Cool-n Quiet and that the speed steps are initiated between the BIOS and the OS with the correct chip-set drivers installed. My thoughts are that either:

(1) There is a problem with the BIOS F.24
(2) There is a problem with CPU-Z and this config
(3) The is a problem with the processor
(4) Or the P7350 doesnt down clock like the T8100 that is in the DV2700tv

I re-installed the chipset drivers just to make sure all was correct. Device manager is clear and no problems there. I checked Intel and the P7350 supports "Enhanced Speedsteps" and it at least is down clocking from 2Ghz to 1595Mhz. Ive also searched the forums and no luck there either.
