Zephyrous g14 2022 fan problems/fans not found

my fans don’t work anymore.
After an update a week or two ago did turn on but randomly would turn off, the fix would be to restart the computer, but after a few days, and an update, that didn’t work either.

and now that i look at the inxi, it looks like my fans aren’t found?!

Hi @siken,

I’d say if the laptop’s not overheating, then you don’t need to worry. Laptops switch off fans to conserve battery power, and their passsive cooling is much better than a desktop.

If you wish more advanced control, look at TLP. And the TLP UI is in the community repositories:

$ pamac search tlpui
tlpui                                                                                                                                                                                                          [Installed]              community
A GTK user interface for TLP written in Python

So can be installed using:

pamac install tlpui

Hope this helps!


When posting terminal output, copy the output and paste it here, wrapped in three (3) backticks, before AND after the pasted text. Like this:

pasted text

This will just cause it to be rendered like this:

sollicitudin dolor
eget nisl elit id
arcu erat varius
cursus sem quis eros.

Instead of like this:

Sed sollicitudin dolor eget nisl elit id condimentum arcu erat varius cursus sem quis eros.

Thereby increasing legibility thus making it easier for those trying to provide assistance.

Hi, thanks for the tip, the fan are not turning on, even though its extremely hot, i don’t think it has registered the fans.
I don’t know how to fix that, do you have any suggestions?:slight_smile:

Only one. Try a different kernel, perhaps 5.15 as it’s the latest LTS:

mhw-kernel --install linux515

Followed by rebooting into the new kernel.
