You might look here to further your understanding of how your fan controls might work in the EC.I see. So I should just make note of it and modify or totally replace it to suit my laptop, right?
Saw this posted elsewhere just yesterday...
(hopefully you're familiar with C#)
There is a lot of data (in XML) for various laptops that the code uses to determine how to manipulate the fan...
Careful reading of the code and analysis/experimentation may help you reverse engineer your fan controls in ACPI.
Through experimentation, I found that larger numbers, up to 128 (fan off or very slow) were for slower fan speeds, 255 was "off/BIOS control". And 0 was fan full speed.I understand. My concern is the scale of the resulting fan speeds. Your code uses fan control table FTAB to do the mapping but how the numbers for fan control byte were calculated? monitored someway in Windows for example?
I did a lot of experimentation in RW-Everything to determine how it worked...
