When I decided to buy the Probook 440 G6 I didn't think to get into this Odyssee... First happy about my purchase, I quickly got irritated by the loud fan noises, even at very low CPU workload. In my opionion, this is a clear no-go for a laptop in this price segment. I then downloaded all available updates (including BIOS, which I learned about in other threads) and played around with the Energy settings , still it didn't help. I then went to the store to exchange the notebook for a second one and couldn't belive to face the same Problems. I tried the measures I just mentioned all over again. Today it's already the third (!) notebook that I test and yet again, the fan is constantly noisy and at high pace.
Before I return this ultimate laptop to the store and claim my money back I just want to know: Am I the only one? Do others face the same issues with this laptop model (or just don't care as much as I do about the noise) ?
And @HP: Are you aware of the problem and is there any chance, that it will be resolved in the near future via an update?
Sorry about my offensive thread, but I am really fed up with this.

I'm facing with completely the same problem. I've already written about it in different thread here. It looks like there is no solution for now. I have model with hybrid graphics and I decided to disable discrete card in order to decrease heating of the system. But it didn't help. All bios updates have been applied with no luck. So I decided to live with this issue for now.
I hope it will be fixed in next bios update.

I have same problem.
BIOS and all drivers is updated.
This problem may be solved with program HP FanControl 0.62 - https://thinkwiki.de/TPFanControl

But this solution not from HP.
I will be wait when this problem will solved with HP support.
