Post po angielsku, bo problem jest na tyle światowy, że warto by inny potrafili to przeczytać ;-) (tak, pewnie masę błędów popełniłem, cóż… biedne tylko B1). So…
Update 2012-05-15: I’ve found solution how to use SpeedFan: Use /NOSMARTSCAN /NOSCSISCAN switches on application start. You won’t be able to read SMART’s from drives, but SpeedFan won’t freeze on startup.
After I migrated to Windows Vista around half year ago I’ve discovered, that I could not use SpeedFan any more, because it freezing at startup and it freeze system almost fully – can’t reboot system, must use reset button. SpeedFan wasn’t so important application for me at that time so I just ignored that issue (maybe it will own-solve in future or with new releases?)… until yesterday.
I’ve upgraded Vista to Seven since last week, also updated ITE drivers from 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 (Upgrade helper told me to do that :-P), but I haven’t check did SpeedFan’s problem disappear. My PC started to randomly restarting at last time, so I thought to check temperatures etc. So I grab SpeedFan and… it stills freezing. Fuck, another problem to solve.
Read rest only if you have:
- Windows Vista/7 or newer
- ITE RAID 8212 controller (or other, onboard/card) with old drivers and shitty support
- Problem with application like: SpeedFan, HWMonitor, PC Wizard (sensor section) etc. – when you trying access sensors in your PC
- But no problems with apps like RivaTuner or CPU-Z (when system is not freezed)
- I have also Asus P5GDC Deluxe motherboard, but I think it’s not so important.
