My Laptops fan is so loud since i got it. Its unbearable to do anything without getting a headache. I have had the laptop for just above 1 year now and its getting louder and hotter. i have taken the bottom of and cleaned the fans and all the dust which was in there. It has made the fan less loud but still a lot louder than it should. And when i put it to sleep in the middle of the night it just randomly wakes up and starts ramping up the fans to max speed.

@TomatoGeorge Due to the current global COVID-19 situation, we're seeing an influx of customers coming in for support and we appreciate your patience.
That said, to resolve issues such as Fan is Noisy and Spins Constantly:
- Updating your Notebook computer BIOS
- Keeping notebook air vents clear and clean
- Increasing the efficiency of the notebook to reduce heat
- Using Windows Task Manager to identify corrupt processes
- Selecting power save settings to shut off your computer when it is not in use
P.S: Welcome to HP Community 😉

@TomatoGeorge To confirm if this is a hardware malfunction, I suggest performing a complete hardware test:
Install the latest version of the HP Hardware diagnostics (UEFI) on your device using this link: Click here for details
- Hold the power button for at least five seconds to turn off the computer.
- Turn on the computer and immediately press Esc repeatedly, about once every second. When the menu appears, press the F2 key.
- On the HP PC Hardware Diagnostics (UEFI) main menu, click System Tests.
- Click Extensive Test.
- Click Run once, or Loop until error.
- While the test is running, the time remaining and test result for each component display on the screen.
If a component fails a test, write down the failure ID (24-digit code) for when you respond back to us.

Do note that the Omen's fans are louder than a typical laptop's fan even when operating correctly because it is a gaming laptop. It has twice as many fans, and they move more air than a typical laptop's fan because the graphics chip and CPU are run at higher performance levels than a typical laptop. You can change this by choosing the power plan "Power Saver" but the Omen will still run its fans more often than a typical laptop because of the graphics chip. In short, the Omen is not a laptop to buy if you want quiet fans!
