Use custom laptop fan speeds while booted in Windows
Authored by: swisswuff on Dec 06, '06 11:46:23AM

As long as you keep that in mind (that some settings "stick"), you won't be surprised about other "dual boot issues".

If you do dual boot of Linux and Windows on the same laptop, you may very well be experiencing some issues with your network card that are really caused by Windows and that you won't get until after re-booting into Linux. If you really let your laptop have a hard chill (take batteries out, wait a little), problems will be gone.

The solution in such instances is to suspect it first, and to really reset the machine secondly. Or, if you want some functionality to "stick", to do it the other way around - as described here.

I wonder to what other components this could pertain.
