I just install Centos 7 on my Dell Inspiron laptop, but my laptop turnoff (or shutdown) every time after a few minutes of listening to music (spotify) or watching video (youtube or other video site) online. After installing lm_sensors and i8kutils, I notice that the laptop fan was not working. I have try to control the fan with i8kutils but it is not working, fancontrol script is not working and pwnconfig script is not working too. I also install intel thermald-deamon and tlp. As you can see have look for solution to get the fan to work but it is still not working, I have been working on this for two week now so any help will be appreciated.

To rule out hardware issues, have you tried with another Distro? Ubuntu and Fedora have live CDs.
yeah, I try fedora and the fan work perfectly, so i don't think it's hardware issues.
