Alienware 18 - CPU fan decides not to spin

Recommended Posts

I have a strange issue as of late. After recovering from soft brick from XTU settings, CPU fan decides not to come on at all...great. CPU is bouncing off thermal limiter. I decide to reflash bios, now CPU fan stuck on low setting. I don't understand how the machine EC has developed a new consciousness for the worse. Any idea how to get the fan to properly step up and step down fan speed? it is bordering on the ridiculous now. No such issues exist with the M18x R1 or M18x R2....sigh. Alienware 18 is such a piece of sh!t.
