Solved!

Fan speed goes high when playing game

HP Recommended
Pavilion ec0101ax
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I recently purchased a pavilion ec0101ax laptop. Till now it was working perfectly, I was able to play games on it without any issues. However, after the recent BIOS update whenever I try to play any game after a few minutes the fans start to run at full speed and then windows displays message 'Locking'. Then it shuts down. When I boot up again it directly goes to lock screen and the fan still run at high speed for sometime. This has made gaming nearly impossible . Please help.

When playing games, machine will use more resource and make machine hotter. Heat sensors will kick in to command fan(s) to run faster to pump heat out to make machine cool down to acceptable degrees.

 

When too hot, to protect itself from damages, machine will shout down itself.  You can use cooling pad to cooling down machine a bit.
