EveryOne With FAN SPEED GOING CRAZY

Hi,
Please check your bios and OS for CPU/GPU RPM, if it's a crazy number like 7000? or -34550 or what ever!
then your problem is in THE HARDWARE the connector on the motherboard is very fragile and it has 4 PINS, very gentle pins inside it. those pins go inside the four holes of the fans connector and if even once the connector is seated in a wrong angle those pins will get BENT!
please check this before posting about crazy fans speeds.

ps. even new laptops can have this problem, employees @ asus factories aren't perfect and make mistakes too.

This is not a public library. People come to this forum to looking for a quick solution and wall of text isn't going to help in this case, specially when it goes way off topic. It just gets in the way when you're trying to find something.

This specific issue we are discussing here is caused by a bad connection. Not software related. I -and others for that matter- never said fan speed issues are always caused by a bad connection. Again, we are discussing this very specific issue with this line of laptops from Asus.

It doesn't matter how many users are dealing with this issue. We are not here to discuss that, but instead to find a solution. It is happening and the solution is out there, but users keep trying to magically fix it without even opening the back cover of their laptops to at least try to troubleshoot. I say they want a patch or whatever or are expecting a reformat would fix that, because that's what people have been doing. Read the other threads and see it for yourself.


(to placate) DISCLAIMER: THIS POST IS NOT A FIX FOR THE FAN ISSUES AND RATHER CONTRIBUTION TO A NECESSARY DISCUSSION ON WHY THESE ISSUES EXIST.

This also isn't Asus technical support, so the fact you see the board as needing to stand in for that, bolsters every point I've been making.
This is a discussion board for Asus products, specifically the GL series of laptop. I am happy my post is included in this discussion, because this will allow people who choose to read my posts to understand that they didn't just get unlucky, and that these issues affect more people then they should.

You're in no position to gate keep how people should use this discussion board.

Finding a solution is absolutely ideal, but if there're so many issues needing solutions found, I think this is absolutely an appropriate place to mention that.

Sure, maybe I could have made an individual thread for this train of thought, but nonetheless, it's pretty easy to see that my post was a commentary on the issue and not a solution, so any member who is using the forum in the way you just described could easily choose to not read my commentary and scroll through for a solution. Any member who reads my discussion, and would like to agree/disagree with it, can do so. It's not like I wrote a bait where the first three sentences set up something that looks like its going to lead into a magic solution, then I proceed to diverge into a critique of Asus.

Also, any user who wants to arbitrarily define what they think this forum should be used for, in a dogmatic fashion may do so, I guess..

If Asus upped their engineering QA, and mfg QA, the quantity of fixes needing to be discerned by the end user would go down, and that's totally relevant.

If this thread was about a one-off issue, or a recurrent issue that appears in a single model, I'd be pretty off-topic. But when someone says "FAN SPEED GOING CRAZY" they could be referring to like ten different presentations of that issue, all which are common with Asus models in the ROG line, all which may or may not be caused by hardware. Don't believe me, just look at the posts in these forums.

Off-topic walls of text aren't going to help finding or solving the issue.

If you feel like venting your frustration or disgust about Asus engeneering QA and whatnot, I suggest you take a look at the "service-related inquiries" or "general discussion" subforums. Have fun.

I think you need to consider the likelihood that the number of people complaining about issues with their fan speed turns the issue from being a forgivable human mistake, to a lack of quality control. Also, if your issue was resolved by straightening pins, or replacing a part, there are people whose issues recurred after sending their product to Asus for service, so to characterize their issues as being forgivable is just asinine.

Remember, anyone who speaks to these issues, are a subset of the people experiencing these issues. Not everyone, few people, log into the ROG forum to document issues they have with their machine. Many will just ignore it, or sadly even go as far as to purchase a new machine, or return the old one to the retailer they purchased it at.

Hola ,yo imagine que era un falso contacto y quite la tapa , solte el conector y lo volvi a conectar y como bien dice FULLMETALJACKET7 se soluciono por un mes aproximadamente.
he tenido que repetir la operacion pero me quede con ganas de darle un poquito de estaño a las patillas del conector/placa , sin duda cuando vuelva ha abrirlo lo hare , prefiero perder la garantia a que me lo toqueteen todo y lo dejen peor.
Saludos


Hello, I imagined that it was a false contact and removed the cover, release the connector and reconnected it and as you say it was solved for about a month.
I have had to repeat the operation but I wanted to give the connector / board pins a little bit of tin, no doubt when I open it again I will do it, I prefer to lose the guarantee that they will touch everything and leave it worse.
Cheers

I am curious, I read all the pots of sidelong, and if it is new your notebook is rare that happens. Why do i say so? I have a G752VSK since 2017, and a few days ago the same thing happened to me, the fans started to go crazy, for this the screen was black when it turned on and only restarted, I spent about 2 days like this; I do not remember, but only today everything was fixed, since I was able to remove the SSD and start the recovery of problems through a USB with windows.

Note: I let the battery run out, I left as I almost day without using the notebook, and I could do that with peace of mind, maybe it was a bug of Bios, some program or update, so far I do not know what happened but it was fixed.
