Windows 10: fans at 100%

    fans at 100%

    restarted next morning after last windows 10 update and my fans were running at 100% till I got in to adjust to manual settings I had. Now every time I boot up till my manual settings in alienware command center kick in they run at 100%. I am always in a hurry but I think I saw a "personal settings" warning flash when windows opened that first time. Tried auto which put them at 55% until a restart the same thing 100%.
    the undue stress every time I start up is unnecessary, what should I try?

    Hi PattiB. Welcome to the TenForums @PattiB

    While I don't have a solution I do have a few questions?

    When you boot or start your fans go to 100%. If you open task manager any chance your CPU / Disk is running at 100%? If not at 100% are either running at high levels, say above 60%?

    If either are running at high levels, with you doing nothing, how long are they running at these levels?

    Hey Ken,
    As I wrote they do this during startup, booting till windows loads and then my command center manual curve settings kick in. It affects just the hd fan and the pc fan not the CPU fans.
    I read a little and saw this was a problem with an update back in 2015 and it seems to be back. side note what is wrong with the script in this forum?? Very laggy must type so slowly etc. somethings up. Might unjoin and uninstall.. really bad.
    I am going try a solution someone used back then and reinstall the command center. Have put off as major removal steps to wipe it and install new. Thanks for the response though. Windows should be doing something about this not that uncommon update "bug" and respond.
