HP V1U54AV loud fan noise at start up

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I purchased my laptop back in August 2016 its been fine until recently. Last week I started up my pc and the laptop began to make a loud wirring noise everytime it starts up. It also happens if it has been hibernating for a while. The noise does eventually stop. it lasts about 10-15 seconds after start up its a very worrying sound and I can not tell what is wrong.
