sony vaio fan control driver

  1. After installing Vista, my system's fan ran at a very high speed. I had a
    similar problem in XP that I fixed by installing the sony fan control driver
    (xSOG061XDAN.EXE) from the sony web site.

    I tried running that installation on Vista, but it just hung. I then had
    the idea of running it on XP to see what it did. I saw that it copied 3
    files (SFCINST.EXE, SonyFanC.inf and sonyfanc.sys) to a temp directory during
    the installation, then deleted them.

    I ran the installation again, but killed the process as soon as the 3 files
    were copied. Then I ran SFCINST.EXE, and that ran to completion. After I
    rebooted, the fan slowed down to normal. Voila!
