Does anyone know how to fix the spinning and humming noises that come from the HP Pavilion AMD Ryzen 5- 4600G and other HP Desktops? I heard the same complaints people experienced when using their desktop in which once in a while every 30 minutes or so that computer starts to sort of turning on and off of the fan. It also makes humming and spinning noises. Basically the fan "would occasionally freeze up and would definitely get loud. Not just loud, it would spur up and then slow down and then spur up and then slow down and it would do this way too frequently." Not sure if the spinning noises are coming from the hard drive as well as it also frequently happens when or saving Microsoft Office documents. This spinning problem also occurs when browsing on Google and just opening files from the hard drive. A very similar experience to the "engineer's opinion" review and from the Costco.com reviews. I called the HP India technical support but they were not helpful and could not solve the problem after updating the bios settings. Does anyone know how to permanently fix these problems that the HP desktop has?

Typically, the motherboard reacts to additional heat caused when the processor is working hard, by making the fan spin faster, which causes more noise. Download, install, and run the free version of the SPECCY software, to view the temperature of the processor, and the temperature of the motherboard, and the speed of the fan on top of the processor. View the numbers when the computer is "quiet", and view again when the computer is "noisy". Also, launch the Windows Task Manager and switch to its "Performance" tab, when the computer is "quiet". Minimize the window, and then maximize the window when the computer is "noisy". What has changed? Higher processor utilization? Nearly 100% of your RAM being used? Disk-drive transferring megabytes per second?
Could it be a background virus-scan occasionally "working" the processor?
