Fan spins really fast =(

DV5-1110em

when the laptop is plugged in without a battery, the fan is running at the normal speed.

 

if I put the battery in for charging the fan starts spinning fast?? :smileysad:

 

If I run the laptop on battery the fan's running at normal speed.

 

why is that it spins faster when charging?

It had a new battery a week ago . Original from HP technical support and a new charger.

had a new fan and heat sink due to heating issue.

still under warranty  about 20 days left!

 

bios is up to date f.38

 

thanks

Re: Fan spins really fast =(

Well, same problem here ...

i have pavulion DV6-1390ev and it has exactly the same issue u mentioned

the processor usage and temps are quite normal

removing the battery is still an option to avoid the annoying fan noise ... but of course not always

so far there is no solution for this problem .. seems to be a hardware problem though

 

SPEED FAN only gives the temps readings .. does not allow me to change the fan speed ( motherboard is not supported )

 

HP !! i'm looking forward for a real solution.

 

any help ??

 

thanks in advanced !
