I think you do it in the bios??

When you start the laptop you can press something like F12 (it does say as it's booting) that will allow you to change settings.

Some laptops do let the processor get quite hot before switching on the fans - this is to extend the time the battery lasts.

I haven't seen a bios setting other than to enable the fan as continuous when on mains power, this doesn't mean that some don't have additional settings.

Why do you think it is coming on too late?

My BIOS has temp settings, for when the fan comes on and also if it overheats, it shuts the computer down (80c+).
