I would recommend you to update the latest BIOS for your notebook from the support and driver download page on hp.com, and also go through the following document which will help you reduce the FAN noise.
Hope this helps!

Worked for me! Might be an idea to take advantage of some of the other updates if the problem persists

I have the same problem.Bought the laptop 2 days ago. Bios is updated. It was set to fan always on so I disabled hoping that would quiet it. No luck. I upgraded to windows 8, and am unable to install coolsense. The fan is really winningly loud. I can't ignore it, its giving me a headache!
Should I return it?

To fix the fan issue, the first thing to do is to check you have the latest bios ( I believe it's in its 6th revision at present). The best way to do this is to go to the HP support site and download the latest bios and install it. It’s a very simple self-executing file. Once the bios is updated, you restart the Folio 13 and hit escape as soon as you see the screen lights up, by doing this you can go into Bios Mode and once there you should navigate using the arrows on your keyboard to the section where you can select ‘Disable’ for ‘Fan runs all the time’ (it’s either F5 or F6 to toggle between Enable and Disable). After doing this you will be blown away by how quiet the ultrabook becomes. I have a model with the lower heat i3 processor that runs super cool, but even with the i5 model you’ll be shocked at how quiet it is when using basic applications like Word, or just blogging/posting. In the time I have written this, the fan has been off the entire time, and even when watching video it stays quiet. Watching video does cause the fan to come on a little, but no more than about 80% of the speed when the fan is permanently switched on in the bios.
Still writing, and the fan is still silent,

I have a same problem. I bought this laptop (model 1035 nr)a few years back and for some reason I upgraded my stupid bios and this problem started kick in. I think it has somehting to do with sleep and hiberation mode. When I shut down and start. It remains dead silent until my do something, but using just the Word processor. This does not cause any problems.

I tried everything that was previously suggested: update bios, driver, Coolsense, power saving mode.
Nothing will abate the raging noise level spill out by this laptop. I always suspected that HP may have set the fan speed on this and other similarly configured ultrabook on overdrive. The noise level of this laptop sometimes competes with with the LCD project in the conference room.
But finally, one person suggested a different approach which worked on another model of HP ultrabook: put a pierce of
tape over part of the intake vent grill. This works micraculously with noise level greatly diminished as the flow of air with restricted.
Of course, you realize that this not a viable option if the laptop was constantly running hot, and the air flow restriction may degrade or cause harm due to heat. HP has not come through with a clean solution in the past. I would not choose this option if any of the previously suggest options worked. In any case, I felt comfortable to use the power saving mode, with low LCD brightness, in exchange of a little more quiet and peace around this laptop.
My two cents.

I owned folio 13 1035. I had a fan problem and was about to sell the laptop. Thinking windows becoming more demanding and old parts are stressing out even at idle status. I re-apply the thermal paste with artic silver and temp. went down like 10 celius and it still makes ridulous noise. It is time to trash the laptop. I guess i will avoid buying things with fans in it.
