Hello themanafreak.  I understand your notebook is getting warm during use.

First, you should ensure that the cooling system of the notebook is free of dust and debris but cleaning the notebook as per these instructions.

Also, another good step to take is to ensure that you have the latest version of the BIOS installed.  I can locate the latest BIOS for you if you provide me with your product number.  This document can show you where the product number is located.

 

Finally, I do not know of a way to increase the fan's speed itself but you can set the fan to "always be on" by doing the following.

  1. Reboot your computer and press F10 until the BIOS loads.
  2. Navigate to the System Configuration section.
  3. Ensure that "Fan Always On" is set to enabled.
  4. Navigate to the Exit section and save your changes.


Have a great day!

1. Open the HP CoolSense app.  (hit start; type 'cool....')

2. change the setting to 'coolest mode' while playing your game.  

 

Fan should turn on 'high'.   You'll hear it.

 

Good luck.

Hello again themanafreak.

If your question was directed at me you should enable the "Fan Always On" option in the BIOS and make sure to save the settings.

Have a great morning!  :smileyhappy:
