Default NVIDIA 8800GT cooler turns on and doesn't turns off

When I'm loading nvidia module, NVIDIA 8800GT (Asus) Cooler turns on and doesn't turns off until next restart or shut down. Even if I change resolution, go to another virtual console or something else, cooler still works. GPU core temp. is normal.
Where's the problem? I'm using 169.07...

I think you must be talking about the fan working at 100% speed bug in the driver. It is a well known feature of the latest driver, here's another thread about it with a possible workaround:
