Aspire 7720Z-4284 sparky 7 runs great. no problems other than the fan doesn't start when it gets hot. how ever
if the laptop shuts off and i reboot it right away , the fan starts when the bios loads and continues to run
through spark 7 desktop loads , once the fan is running it doesn't shut off till the computer is shutdown.
i don't mind the fan running, i do mind it shutting off lol . it is the perfect computer for candle and ugs.
is there a way to turn on the fan from cli ?

System:    Host: aspire-7720z-001 Kernel: 5.10.0-8-amd64 x86_64 bits: 64 Desktop: Openbox 3.6.1
           Distro: SparkyLinux 7 (Orion-Belt)
Machine:   Type: Other-vm? System: Acer product: Aspire 7720Z v: V1.27 serial: <superuser required>
           Mobo: Acer model: Poyang v: V1.27 serial: <superuser required> BIOS: Acer v: 1.27 date: 01/05/2008
any help would be much appreciated thank you


good day all
a bios update solved my fan problem, from 1.27 to 1.45 .  Aspire 7720Z-4284 acer the bios update was still available.
