Even though I've followed the steps for diabling "Fan Always On" in BIOS, the fan doesn't stop. Everybody complains about my "Jet Plane" in meetings and my battery only lasts about 35 minutes on a practically NEW $2200 laptop!
I have the EXACT same issue and it just recently started. Earlier this week the fan started to run all the time and I too disabled the ALWAYS ON in the BIOS but other than when it first strarts up the fan is ON & WAY TOO LOUD! The only thing I have running is Chrome and yet the computer is acting like I have 8 applications open and 4 of them actively searching.
I LOVE MY OMEN but this is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE and I sencerely hope this gets attention. I am shocked that the previous post is unanswered for 2 months!
The issue had NOTHING to do with HP or the Computer. I wasted an Hour with a tech who took control of my system and reinstalled the SAME BIOS version and then set up a support ticket to RETUN My NEW OMEN LAPTOP.
OUT OF DESPERATION
I decided to restore my computer to last week when this situation was NOT present and low and behold..... SOLVED!
The issue was that SONIC WALL NET EXTENDER was installed and must have had a contantly running process that was making the fan run. It is the only application that was new and after the restore... NO MORE NOISY FAN!
I am posting this for both the EXPERTS and the USERS in case this is your situation so that you don't waste time and send back your computer when it may not be necessary!
