v1 v2 5 5 Usually, once you boot the computer you'll hear the laptop's fans kickstart in high mode and then go into a low-power mode after the BIOS 'splash' screen. During Haiku's splash screen process and desktop appearance, you should not hear the fans immediately going into high-mode at all. You'll hear them randomly kick on for about a 30 second period - but anything longer 'might' be a sign of a slight hardware cooling issue. 6 6 7 8 7 9 Suggestion: You'll want to professionally service and clean your laptop with good cooling testing for both the motherboard and battery component(s). Beforehand, check the 30-60 second cooling ability of your laptop in Linux under normal/heavy loads. BIOS updates help, but cleaning old laptops usually fixes most issues.
