Hi there, I just got this new HP laptop and it works smoothly but the fan makes a constant buzzing noise from startup. The fan doesn't seem to be running very fast and I think the noise sounds abnormal and is unlike anything I'd ever heard from my old laptop. I turned off the fan constantly running setting in the BIOS (and now the laptop is completely silent) which is a temporary solution but I'd like to know if this is fault that I should get looked at.

Thanks for posting on the HP forums!
I understand you believe the fan in your new notebook seems louder than it should be. I'll try to help you with that.
First, I do not recommend that you r turn the fan off. This can cause excess heat and a multitude of heat related issues by doing this. What I would check for next is any foam, paper, debris that may be lodged in there from unpacking the machine. I would also use a few bursts of computer duster to see if that clears it up. I would also recommend following these documents: HP Notebook PCs - Reducing Heat Inside the Laptop to Prevent Overheating & HP Notebook PCs - Fan is Noisy and Spins Constantly, PC is Warmer than Normal.
Let me know if these helped.
