Sounds like fan is running off and on constantly

HP Pavilion HPEh8
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Constantly running off and on. Sounds like it is trying to either download something or the fan is running. It comes on for a short time then cuts off.

According to: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c03019166

 

your computer was first manufactured on 14-Sep-2011.

 

So, it's possible that one of the fans (inside the power-supply, on top of the CPU, inside of the back-panel) is having problems with the ball-bearings that should be allowing the fan to spin freely.

 

Open the side-panel, and see which fan(s) are spinning, and try to listen to each individual fan.
