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!  Smiley Happy

hello mateSmiley Happy

If you will read this I`ll be happy.

I had the same problem you have (high temperature ). The only solution is to clean your fan from dust. The temperature will drop at 50-60 C. Go to a service to do that or do it by your self, but take care when you do it.

It's pretty simple. You're going to want to check what the most updated version of the BIOS is, and then remember that version. Shut off your computer, start it back up, and hit F10. The BIOS version should be in the general overview. If the numbers match, you're updated. If not, go to here http://www8.hp.com/us/en/drivers.html , find your computer, and download the appropriate drivers.
