Extremely loud grinding fan noise

HP Recommended
Envy x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

This system has been solid for over a year, but of course about two months after my 1 year warranty ends, I'm editing a document and suddenly there is a loud, grinding, buzzing sound coming from inside the system. It seems like a fan, and I'll be honest, it has been super quiet before now.


I don't want to spend hundreds of bucks f this is a simple fix, but I'm also afraid to use the laptop while it is making the sound. Any advice or help?

I reviewed your post and I understand that the fan is making a loud grinding noise.


Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.


What is the product number of your computer?


Meanwhile, I recommend you update the BIOS and the graphics driver from the below link and check if it helps.


Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!
