This is on a VAIO laptop running Win7 x64 ultimate. My copy of Win7 30-day activation expired at around day 31, and then I ran the Daz loader with default options. The problem after the successful installation was that it seems to have disrupted fan/thermal controls. I selected the power saver option and an option to give "quiet" over "performance" so it will keep the fanspeed low. But it looks like this is disrupted because the fan will run high at idle. And when I increased CPU load to 100% for a period of time, the fan speed will actually go down very low. And when I remove the CPU load, it will go back up to high speed. Uninstalling the loader did not seem to help. Reset BIOS options did not help. I'm about to reformat this thing to see if it will fix it, but I don't know whether to use the loader again or removeWAT. Any clues on what might have happened? This definitely occurred after I added the loader.
