Computer Fan Keeps Running
Hi, I purchased a new Compaq Presario v3000 about a month ago. I noticed a couple of days ago that the computer's fan just keeps going. Now, before I take it in to have it looked at, I just wanted to see what might be causing this problem. Given that my computer is brand-new I'm not exactly sure if it's a hardware issue or one related to my computer's settings.
Let me explain the problem a bit further. The fan keeps running continuously for up to hours. Even if it's been off for an extended period of time. Now, I know that the fan comes on to cool the computer but I don't believe it's suppose to stay on all the time. Especially since, all I usually do is surf the net.
I've update my bios and have run norton to check for any viruses or adware and it came up clean. Also, I didn't notice this problem until recently and I haven't changed any of my settings. Btw, I have a AMD Sempron processor. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
