Guys,

Would there be a Windows program that will trick any notebook to make it think it's at a temperature hotter than itself and run its cooling fans right away?! Most BIOS settings won't allow this option.

I doubt that you can do what you are proposing but it sounds like you have a need to change your power settings on your laptop from the default which is probably a power saving mode to a performance mode. You will probably want to use both options at certain times as well so have a look at this link http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows- ... wer-plans/ for a way to create a short cut to any of Windows preset power plans. You can also customize a plan all your own and create a shortcut to that plan using the control panel to access the power options GUI.

Good luck
