is it possible that this tweaked drivers make the fan of my notebook work all the time?

I have a new Acer 8930 and I am quite sure that the fan only worked very few times.

Also, with the Acer drivers for my graphic card, the power management had the option to lower the graphic cards power. This has also disappeared now. Is this intentional?

these drivers are based on DESKTOP drivers, fan control were designed for desktop cards.

If you want low fan speeds stick with acer drivers, sam thing aplies for the power mangaement.

all other questions post in the spport thread
