Runs quiet and suddenly loud roaring sound. Stops and quiet again for a few hours. Starts again.

HP Pavilion P6000
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Upgraded to Windows 10 (64); Ran all updates slowly and restarted after each one. I keep it clean inside. All fans are clean and I use compressed. Fans looked a little dusty, took them off and cleaned. Still roars and stops.  
I only use it for PowerPoint Lessons for church. No games or long hours with a lot of screens up. I realize it is an older computer but it is still doing an awesome job, just noisy.

Thanks for listening.

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.


Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  
use the following steps:

  • Dust can accumulate inside the vent openings and around internal cooling components, preventing the removal of heat.

For more information on reducing heat inside your computer, Click here:

  • Perform a hard reset. Performing a hard reset can reset recorded thermal values in memory and enable you to use the computer again, even if only for a short time to access and save any important files before service.

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
