Acer laptop fan stops working after 5 seconds

\015 When booting up my Acer Aspire 1690 laptop the fan starts but then quits after about 5 seconds. The system starts up nicely (OS starts up nicely) it just doesn't have a fan anymore which basically renders the laptop useless.Already tried to clean the fan with compressed air and I even ordered a new fan, but the problem remains.Anyone who had a similar problem? Or any idea how to fix it?\015

Answers :

Check the Bios and see if the Fan is set to a certain temp or on all the time. there's a chance if it's set at a certain temp that the temp tracker (thermometer) may be borked and not reading properly. Remember, turning the fan on all the time will use up energy so your laptop will not last as long on batery life.
