Fan runs continously Asus K60I running OpenSuSE 11.2

I have a spiffy new ASUS K60I. I really like it and it runs OpenSuSE 11.2 like a champ. But, the fan runs continuously; hard for about 4 seconds, then a lull, then hard for 4 seconds… and so on.

Looking in /proc/acpi/fan I find no files at all.

Any suggestions for my happy fan? Oh, yes, and the cpu is indicating temperatures far below the threshold values for the fan.

Looking in the bios I find nothing remotely fan-like. :\

Thanks in advance,


In you boot in Failsafe does it do the same?
