    I have a HP Pavilion dv6-2088dx

    Here's the link to the specs: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsuppor...c=us&objectID=c01920676&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN

    I play games on my laptop like Counter Strike: Source and CrossFire and World of Warcraft and when I play them games, my laptop gets really hot. I know the heat is coming from my graphics/video card and my processor but is there any way I can control/change my fan speed?

    Also my laptop is very well ventilated!

    Please help me! :confused:

    The fan's speed (in most cases) is decided on how hot the processor is, or how much power is in use. I don't think it's possible to control it.
