How old is this computer and is it on warranty? Is fan working that loud from the begining or only for the last days? It can be problem with dust. It's a common issue when temperature is high and fan is working loud.

Yes totally agreed and I am seeing the same issue as well. Mine was only 3 months old, there was no dust as all. I even reformatted my mini harddrive and install the HP recovery disk from scratch, still the same issue. So I can confirm regardless of using Recovery Disk drives or upgraded to latest version of BIOS, Drives both won't fixes. The situation for mine was especially worse after using Skype and watching video.
I have no idea of the fixes (as I tried both) and asking for your help here. Any one seeing the same issue, please reply here as we need to gain HP attention to solve this issue. otherwise, what is the point to carry a min laptop that the battery won't last for a hour. Any HP tech reading this post, please help ....

This is the last message I received from HP (see below). I feel that I'm getting the run around as usual. I have already listed my netbook for sale, since I cannot have something with a 1-2hour battery life. Its a nice netbook but come one. At this rate even the 6 cell would not do much good.
Increased fan speed problem may cause due to over pressure on CPU, to minimize it use Disk Cleanup Utility.
Disk Cleanup Utility
To keep a PC running smoothly, regular maintenance is critical. Many users shy away from maintenance tasks, thinking it is a long, drawn out manual affair, but the Disk Cleanup Utility can easily determine which files on a hard drive may no longer be needed and delete those files. In addition to freeing up potentially significant amounts of hard drive space, using Disk Cleanup on a regular basis can significantly improve system performance.Starting Disk Cleanup
Disk Cleanup is available on both Home and Professional versions of XP. The utility can be accessed in any of the methods listed below.
- Click Start | Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Disk Cleanup
- Click Start | Run and in the Open box type cleanmgr and click OK
- In Windows Explorer or My Computer, right-click the disk in which you want to free up space, click Properties, click the General tab, and then click Disk Cleanup.
Use the drop down menu arrow to select the drive you want to clean.
Click [OK] and Disk Cleanup will analyze the selected drive to determine the amount of space that can be freed.
Note: Be patient. Analyzing the drive can be a lengthy process depending on drive size and contents.
Once the drive analysis is complete a list of file categories will be presented for your selection.
Instead of automatically proceeding with cleanup once the drive analysis is complete, Disk Cleanup allows you to review the categories of files that can be deleted. Click on any of the categories to display more information relative to that category in the Description section of the window. If you're unsure if you want to delete the files in a category from the description, use the [View Files] button. A complete list of files scheduled for deletion will be displayed in Windows Explorer. Use drag and drop to move any files you want to save to a safe location and leave the category selected. If all the files are to be saved, close the window and then remove the checkmark from the file category so it will not be included in the disk cleanup. After all the categories have been reviewed, click [OK] to begin the disk cleanup process.
There are a number of different types of file categories that Disk Cleanup targets when it performs the initial disk analysis. Depending on the individual system, you may or may not have all the categories listed below. Select (check) all of these
· Downloaded Program Files
· Temporary Internet Files
· Recycle Bin
· Temporary Remote Desktop Files
· Setup Log Files
· Backup Files For Previous Operating System
· Offline Files
· Compress Old FilesMore Options Tab NOTE: be cautious while performing with these options, action once done cannot be undone.
In Windows XP there are three choices available on the More Options tab: Windows Components, Installed Programs, and System Restore.
· Windows Components
The Cleanup button in the Windows Components section launches the Windows Components Wizard. Select a general category of components and drill down using the Details button to locate the desired Windows component.
· Installed Programs
The Cleanup button in the Installed Programs section opens the Add/Remove Programs dialog box. Any installed program can be removed by selecting the individual program and clicking the Change/Remove button. You cannot batch programs together to be removed. Each removal operation must be treated as a separate entity.
- System Restore
Clicking the Cleanup button in the System Restore section opens a dialog box where it asks if you are sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point. The difference between using this option and going directly to System Restore is that you have no option to selectively delete restore points with this method. It's "all but most recent" or nothing when accessed via Disk Cleanup. Click Yes or No depending on your choice.Post Disk Cleanup Procedures
Using Disk Cleanup will almost certainly rid your system of a substantial amount of unneeded files. You could stop here and not suffer any ill consequences, but there are a lot of gaps and empty spaces on the hard drive where the files were removed. This would be an excellent time to run Disk Defragmenter to organize the hard drive into contiguous sections. The hard drive heads will spend less time seeking all the pieces of a file and you'll see another performance boost.
NOTE: if the issue still persist only option is reinstalling the operating system and if still no help send it to repair.
This should resolve the issue. If you need further assistance, please reply to this message and we will be happy to assist you further.
