I just boghut a Z 400 After 2 days of working the rear fan start to go high and high by the time now the rear fan and the heat sink fan both running in top speed i was using Windows 10 and Driver pack soultion becouse thier is no driver for windows 10.. today i tried windows 7 and downloaded drivers from Hp website and the same proplem !!
A friend told me that i need to update BIOS .
So what should i do?
i wouled like to mention that the processor heat i 50~70c.
Did you try using this forum's search box to the top left, entering things like fast fans, fans running too fast, loud noisy fans, etc.?
There are a fair number of posts on the most common cause..... bad thermisitor that feeds the motherboard wrong info on the ambient air temperature. The posts talk about what cable that is embedded in, and you often can find those used on eBay. You may need to look at your cable and get the cable's HP part number off the label on the cable. You can't usually just buy the thermisitor because it is built in to the whole cable itself (which does other things too).
HP parts have two numbers each.
You want 536304-001
It is also known as 455796-002 which is what you'll find it under on eBay.
I cannot be 100% sure this is your issue, but it is where I'd start. These are not too bad to deal with in the Z400.
Yep..... try the search box and see if you find any reference to it being a sofware problem.
Of course, in BIOS you can set the fans overall speed higher and higher, but default is that they're set to the lowest value. Some people will choose to boost them higher for the period when they're running a very processor intensive project, but most of us don't.
