HP Pavilion 14 fan issue (when charging)

Pavilion 14
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I purchased a Pavilion 14 laptop before Xmas and am unfortunately being plagued by a fan issue. Whenever the laptop is charging, the fan goes into overdrive and makes an insufferable, constant whining noise, even when performing menial tasks such as browsing the internet (the laptop DOES NOT get hot). When charging I get problems with Sky Go whereby the picture skips every few seconds - wonder if this is linked as it doesn't occur when the laptop is running off the battery. 

 

Fan noise seems to be a common problem with this laptop but I haven't seen any solutions online other than updating the BIOS - which I have tried, to no avail. Is there anything else I can try? If not it looks like I may have to return my laptop to the store.

@AlWong1

 

I suggest you download and run the HP Support Assistant from this Link: https://www8.hp.com/us/en/campaigns/hpsupportassistant/hpsupport.html?jumpid=va_r602_us/en/any/psg/p...

 

HPSA will automatically search for all the latest drivers for your Notebook

 

  1. Click My devices in the top menu, and then click Updates in the My PC or My notebook pane.

    Click Updates in the My notebook pane

  2. Click Check for updates and messages to scan for new updates.

     Updates list in HP Support Center

  3. Review the list of updates. Updates with a yellow information icon are recommended. Updates with a blue information icon are optional.

  4. Click the update name for a description, version number, and file size.

  5. Select the box next to any updates you want to install, and then click Download and install.

Also ensure Windows is up to date.

 

Select the Start  button, and then go to Settings  > Update & security  > Windows Update , and select Check for updates. If Windows Update says your device is up to date, you have all the updates that are currently available

 

Keep me posted how it goes

 

Thank you and have a wonderful day 😊

I've tried everything you've suggested and unfortunately nothing has changed - still a noticeable decline in performance/increase in fan activity when laptop is charging 😞

No luck I'm afraid. As a reminder, this is a brand new laptop. I've been experiencing these issues straight out of the box. I've checked and downloaded all HP and Windows updates. While the fan noise is part of the issue, the main problem is the drop in performance when the laptop is plugged into AC.

Since this is a brand new Notebook and as you mentioned that you are facing this issue right out of the Box, I suggest you contact the Store you purchased it from for a replacement

 

You can also contact HP Support for Service Options

 

Click on this link - www.hp.com/contacthp/ and select your Country to get the Contact details for HP Support

 

Thank you

Try your luck with Notebook FanControl and set the speeds for the temperature levels manually.

Keep the CPU under 95°C but 60°C should be your passive limit.
