Don't forget to demand your money back!
Why would you get pissed because none of the other uses steps up to the plate and help you within 24 hours,
you should try getting help from Microsoft sometime, where you DO pay get the right to use their splendid software!
Do you use any extra app for the fan control, did you activate laptop-mode, a more extensive explanation would be necessary to help you out.
What version of mint are you using?
I use Mint 5 XFCE and I have no problem what so ever with fan control,
and believe me it gets pushed pretty hard from time to time during my more extensive script using on large images in Gimp,
but when it has cooled down it immediately spins down!
So for the millionth time this week Mint XFCE FTW!!!
