    Hi everyone i have a dell latitude c800 laptop and on the back it has two fans but what i have noticed is only one of the fans seem to work.Dose anyone no if they are both supposed to come on at the same time or dose one come on when it gets hotter?I am a little worried as i don`t want my laptop to over heat

    Do not know how many fans should or should not come on but in your Bios or possibly a monitoring program in Windows the PC should shutdown before it over heats.

    If they are the same type try swapping them briefly to see if you get the same effect, otherwise that one might be "windless"
