IBM Fan Control Subject description: Installed pet
I downloaded and installed the little control program, but it seems to have no effect. Unless I have to reboot? It says enabled but changing the settings seems to have no effect. A screen comes up status enabled, speed 3923, level auto. A second screen seems to have no effect on this even if I disable it.
