Is there anything to do to reduce some noise from the fan.
I already check the fan gate.
I only use laptop for using ms office and watching video clip.

I would recommend you to update the latest BIOS for your notebook from the support and driver download page on hp.com, and also go through the following document which will help you reduce the FAN noise.
Hope this helps!

Worked for me! Might be an idea to take advantage of some of the other updates if the problem persists

I have the same problem.Bought the laptop 2 days ago. Bios is updated. It was set to fan always on so I disabled hoping that would quiet it. No luck. I upgraded to windows 8, and am unable to install coolsense. The fan is really winningly loud. I can't ignore it, its giving me a headache!
Should I return it?

To fix the fan issue, the first thing to do is to check you have the latest bios ( I believe it's in its 6th revision at present). The best way to do this is to go to the HP support site and download the latest bios and install it. It’s a very simple self-executing file. Once the bios is updated, you restart the Folio 13 and hit escape as soon as you see the screen lights up, by doing this you can go into Bios Mode and once there you should navigate using the arrows on your keyboard to the section where you can select ‘Disable’ for ‘Fan runs all the time’ (it’s either F5 or F6 to toggle between Enable and Disable). After doing this you will be blown away by how quiet the ultrabook becomes. I have a model with the lower heat i3 processor that runs super cool, but even with the i5 model you’ll be shocked at how quiet it is when using basic applications like Word, or just blogging/posting. In the time I have written this, the fan has been off the entire time, and even when watching video it stays quiet. Watching video does cause the fan to come on a little, but no more than about 80% of the speed when the fan is permanently switched on in the bios.
Still writing, and the fan is still silent,
