Hi... Felt bad for the fellas who can't help but be pissed off by their inspiron 8600 nuttyfan situation in "computer slows to crash in 15 - 20"... In trouble shooting I found this solution t hat worked for me. Wanted to post what I found as what goes around really should come around. I downloaded speedfan from almico. Then all I did was check the dell support option under the options tab and the next time that my cpu went nutty I turned the program on... Luckily it took care of those turbofan blues immediately Hope that this works for you too.
