so, i have this old laptop that seems to be running 65 C idle .to turn up the fan speed, speedfan does not seem to work and so does other software. tried checking the bios but no options to change fan speed.

so about the fan, it has 3 wires, yellow , black and red. so if i cut the yellow wire, will the fan run at 100% always? which is what i am trying to achieve. help please?
