  • I have yet to hear the fan working on the Series 7 slate.  I have real temp working and it says 72C!  Is there a program to monitor the fan speed

  • Hey Erusman,

     

    You may need to install the available drivers from the Samsung site linked below so that your computer can cool itself as it builds heat.

    If one of the drivers isn't able to install successfully, try using the compatibility troubleshooter to see if it can help the driver to install properly. The compatibility troubleshooter can be opened by:

    • Enter the Start screen
    • Move your mouse to the bottom left of the screen to expand the Charms section
    • Select Search
    • Type Compatibility
    • Click Settings in the right column
    • Click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows

     

    Then follow the prompts and direct the troubleshooter to the installer for your computer's driver. You will likely want to choose the choice for This program worked in earlier versions of Windows but won't install or run now when it is given if the latest driver is only applicable to a different version of Windows.

     

    Hope that helps.
