The easiest thing to do is to download a config for your motherboard:

1. Click on the "Info" tab.
2. Click on "Get config".
3. Click on the LINK just above the "Ticket" box.
4. Your browser should now be open to the "Speedfan Configuration Manager page". Take the default on this page and click "Next".
5. Got through each successive step to select your particular motherboard, clicking "Next" after each step.
6. Once you've selected Manufacturer, Motherboard, and Language, click "Get Configuration".
7. You'll get a long list of user supplied configurations for your mobo. select one (maybe start with the latest which should be at the top of the list). Click "Get Configuration" at the bottom.
8. The next page has a configuration with a number in BOLD type. Copy that number exactly.
9. Go back to Speedfan and paste this number into the Ticket box, then click okay.
10. Close Speedfan and restart.

That will give you a base configuration. Read the help files to learn more about how to modify to your liking.

There is a small problem though and it's when i go enter the motherboard name it is not listed on there ? My motherboard info -
Motherboard manufacturer's name: ASUS P5BW-LA
HP/Compaq name: Basswood2-UL8E

All i see is P5B-E and there is no P5BW-LA listed on there ?

Here are my computer specs - http://tinyurl.com/2yw4hr

When i look at my readings on speedfan it says -

ERROR collecting CPU Usage : 1 (Unable to locate the "Processor" performance object)
Win9x:NO 64Bit:NO GiveIO:YES SpeedFan:YES
I/O properly initialized
Linked ISA BUS at $0290
Linked Intel 82801HB ICH8 SMBUS at $0500
Scanning ISA BUS at $0290...
Scanning Intel SMBus at $0500...
End of detection
Loaded 0 events

So my model number is not listed on the speedfan configuration page either , so what do i do next ?

Ugh!! I missed that this is an HP system with an ASUS branded mobo. Well, you might contact either ASUS or HP to see if there is an ASUS board that yours is based on.

Does this board support ASUS's Q-Fan function? Asus PC-Probe?

Not sure what else to tell you, dawg. PC sellers like HP and Dell often put out non-standard stuff to keep you locked in to them for support and add-ons.

You might try clicking on the Configure button to see if ANYTHING is giving you a temp reading. If so, put a check in the box. Then go to the FANS tab and see if there are any RPM readings and check those. You'll have to figure out which reading is for which fan - maybe as drastic as unplugging a fan at a time and seeing which RPM drops to zero.

Have you gone into your BIOS to see if it provides a means of fan control?

I ony get temp readings and they are all checked...I went to the bios where it says advance and on the monitor hardware it shows the speed of the fans but there are no fan control options though..

Hi everyone! Bringing this topic up again cause I've got a similar problem. Since when I installed Windows 10 I started having laptop heating issues. So I googled a bit and find out about Speed Fan. I've got an Acer Aspire 5740 and since it doesn't show me anything in "fans" or "fan control" section, I decided to go for the "ticket configuration decision". I wanted to know, before making any mistakes, if I could select a "Acer Aspire x1200" motherboard since CPU-Z tells me I've got an "Acer xxxx" motherboard. In closing I wanted to know if there was any other way to be able to manually adjust Fans without someone else to make a configuration for me. Thanks for your replies!
Here's my SpeedFan interface (obviously temperature are incredibly high because I tested it using it with maximum brightness).


EDIT: If anyone has the same problem as mine, I bought a cooling stand for my Acer Aspire 5740: the Trust GXT 220 gaming. Since then I don't have the overheating problem anymore and I can lean the laptop on my legs without risking a burn lol
