found me self volunteered to reformat the HD, re-install the O/S etc !
All seems to be fine with the PC except that the fan is driving me mad it's
Google tells me that this is a well known problem with the HP Pavilion
I have installed SpeedFan v4.37 and have experimented with it and now have
settings which make for a far quieter machine without sacrificing cooling to
any noticeable degree (sorry about the terrible pun).
Where I need some help is that I would like this programme to run at startup
with the settings I have evolved to and can't see any way of achieving this.
If anyone has a solution for this or can help with another method of keeping
the fan quieter I would be most grateful

Put a shortcut to the program in the Startup folder in the Start menu.
Either put in your own profile's startup group (to run only when you
login) or in the all-users group (so it runs for whomever logs in).
Right-click on the Startup group in the Start menu and select Open (for
your own login) or Open All Users (for the all-users group), then add a
shortcut to the speedfan.exe program. If you don't want to see the
program when it first loads, enable its option to minimize to tray.
