lm- sensors are showing the following output

I have also checked out Thinkfan Utility
it is showing fan status as disabled

status:         disabled

level:          0

Any Help would be Appreciated
Thanks

you didnt reach temps over 50C, so try running a 4k video from youtube and check if the fan start spinning

Yes I did so what you asked

ayushk@ayush-24663d1:~$ sensors

Still the same I guess

check this:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/fan_speed_control#ThinkPad_laptops
install the thinkfan-git:
pamac build thinkfan-git
load the module:
sudo modprobe thinkpad_acpi
and test again

I did this already homie
and it’s showing fan disabled error

status:         disabled
speed:          0
level:          0```

maybe it just doesnt show it correctly, run the 4k video again, and monitor if the temps keep rising or are stable around those 60-65C

The temp rises so does the cpu usage
But why does it showing it as disabled?
I tried other distros and the same error persists in all of them.
What do you think is causing this problem?

its probably this specific laptop model… check this link:

theres also a guy with the same model and not working fan…
try installing the throtled package and start the service as instructed in the github link, and see if that helps

Thanks for all your concern
I Followed up all the instructions unfortunately it avail no success
thought the service is up and running

:neutral_face:

dont know what else to try, maybe updating bios?
or installing manjaro onto a bigger usb - 32gb if you have one - and try different kernels, like the 5.19 and the 5.10

Let me dual boot my laptop with windows and see if the fans are really working now or are dead

:joy::joy:
