    Hey, I need some way to control my Gateway laptop's fan. If I don't, I think my thighs will be on fire. I do not want to overclack and I do not have the money and time to by a cooling pad. Can you help with any fan control programs and/or way to make the fan run faster?

    Thanks.

    That isn't going to make the least bit of difference and you will literally kill your laptop. For one thing get it off your lap and for another, find a way to purchase a cooler system for the unde4rside as that has to cost less than the new laptop you will soon have to buy if you don't.
