Hi Ahsan111,


Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have read your thread on your HP ENVY Ultrabook and having a noisy fan. Here is a link to overheating that will show you some things that might cause this issue and others.

You might want to check out this link to updating the BIOS.

Update the BIOS for sure. If you still have issues, contact HP to have it sent out for a look. A new heatsink may be required.

Re: my computer's fan making loud noise..


my HP laptop is brand new and the fan is constantly on making a noise.  It couldnt be dust at this stage as it all looks very clean.  my office is cool and i sit by a drafty window so i dont think its the temperature.  today is its first time of customer use and i have downloaded and installed a lot including office, anti-virus and the printer so its been busy but im not sure if thses are the reasons, could you advise please?

Re: my computer's fan making loud noise..

If the computer is brand new and installing lots of updates, it WILL be working very hard which can definitely cause the fans to run. Check the task manager and see what processes are running and how much CPU they are using. If they are using a constant 30%-70% or so, your computer will run warm. Give it a day or two to finish all the updates and see how it's doing then.
