Hey - I'm really loving my Spectre x360 14t but the fan is almost always on when plugged in - its not loud but its driving me nuts. Theres no reason a laptop should do this... Anyone have tips? I tried installing ThrottleStop and disabled Turbo but that didnt seem to help. Makes me think I may have to sell this laptop and switch to Dell or Lenovo...
Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:
Shut down the computer, and then inspect and clean the exterior vents to remove dust buildup by blowing air through the vent openings. Dust can accumulate inside the vent openings and around internal cooling components, preventing the removal of heat.
After you remove the dust, turn on the computer. If the error message persists, continue with these steps.
Perform a hard reset. Performing a hard reset can reset recorded thermal values in memory and enable you to use the computer again, even if only for a short time to access and save any important files before service.
