Heres the fix for the fan speed issue
[b]open regedit then search and delete all instances of RmThermalProviderInfo and RmThermalProviderNum entries in the registry. Then reboot. This causes the driver to redetect the thermal info. The is just a worse variant of the No GPU temp issue. Bad thermal info during the driver install.

This fix did not work for me

I have an EVGA Geforce 7950 GT and am running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.

Using the 196.34 drivers, the fan speed properly adjusts based on the temperature of the card. In the registry, these 2 values are set to the following.

"RmThermalProviderNum"=dword:00000001
"RmThermalProviderInfo"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00

After completely cleaning out the 196.34 drivers, I installed the new 196.75 drivers. The 2 values in the registry were as follows.

"RmThermalProviderNum"=dword:00000001
"RmThermalProviderInfo"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00

As you can see they were exactly the same. I then removed these 2 values everywhere I found them in the registry and rebooted. After rebooting, the Nvidia drivers replaced the missing values with:

"RmThermalProviderNum"=dword:00000001
"RmThermalProviderInfo"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00

Again, the same as before and after testing I confirmed that the fan speed does not adjust as the temperature rises with the 196.75 drivers.

Okay...You deleted the entire RmThermalProviderNum / RmThermalProviderInfo entries or did you just remove the hex and dword values? This has worked for several others but it has been with a 200 series GPU.

This was a fix discovered by Unwinder (Rivatuner creator) a few driver versions back. He is the one who deserves credit.

Wrong. That was a no GPU temperature display fix. This is a different issue that just happens to work with a similar solution. You're welcome.

It's the SAME registry entries. Are you saying you discovered totally on your own due to your coding skills?

[i]I don't believe I saw once in his post him displaying the desire to take credit for anything, whether it be his personal achievement or someone else's. He simply posted what could be an aid to those who wish to stay with the troubled driver set, and provide a work around for temporary relief of the fan control situation. I still would recommend a roll back to a previous WQHL as although this fix may work on some configurations, it is not the way a display driver was intended to operate. This could quite possibly cause another issue for some users down the road.[/i]

So we must hand it over to our tame PC tweaker. Some say he sticky tapes a block of uranium to his dinner before eating it and that he sucks moisture out of ducks. All we know is, he's called Hooks.
