I hope this is not just a hardware problem that cannot be solved. I have installed Fedora 25 on my new notebook PC, and pretty much everything is working. However, the fan never runs in Fedora. I was able to set in the BIOS to always run the fan when the PC is connected to AC, but that is not why I bought this PC.

When I run pwmconfig, this is what I get:

/usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no fan-capable sensor modules installed

Sensors does not show a fan:

Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +33.5°C  

Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +33.0°C  (crit = +128.0°C)
temp2:         +0.0°C  (crit = +128.0°C)
temp3:        +31.0°C  (crit = +128.0°C)
temp4:        +34.0°C  (crit = +128.0°C)
temp5:        +22.0°C  (crit = +128.0°C)
temp6:         +0.0°C  (crit = +128.0°C)

Core 1:         +32.0°C  (high = +100.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1:            N/A  (crit =  +0.0°C, hyst =  +0.0°C)

I have tried the advice on the Arch Linux Wiki to try to set the fanX_div (for x=1, 2, etc), but it does not find the fan, either.

Can this be fixed on this PC?
