    I’m having issues with my PC that is presumably related to the CPU fan kicking on and off. Anytime that the fan comes on or goes off, the computer “hangs” for about a second. While it isn’t that big a deal while using everyday applications, it is quite a pain when doing MIDI sequencing or digital audio.

    I don’t recall my computer originally doing this, though I am not sure when it really started. It’s an HP pavilion that I have had about 2 years.

    Does anyone know how to resolve this problem? Most importantly, I would like to eliminate that 1 second “hang” when the fan kicks on/off.

    the cpu fan should never go off. there are some motherboards that allow the cpu fan to ramp down, but 99% of cpu fans are on all the time. have you visually seen the cpu fan shutting off?
