Ok so I just cleaned out my fan, so it's not overheating. But it's still loud. This is generally what it sounds like, but it stops every once in a while for a few, and then starts up again. (yes that is my video)
What's the problem/solution? Is there a problem? I don't want to upgrade the hdd only to have it eventually crash on me.
16 gb ram also.

Can/should I replace it with this (or something similar)?

That was not good enough. The fan needed to be removed and new thermal paste applied between the heat sink and the processor. The fan needed to be examined to see if it was spinning freely. Likely it needs to be replaced.

I think I'm leaning towards upgrading this one versus buying a new computer anyway.... getting a larger HDD and the whole fan thing. As I see it the fans are cheap. I know nothing about thermal paste and heat sinks.
If I replace the fan do you think that will be enough to get it to be "good as new"? I guess I need to find a computer repair shop...

i had this loud fan noise fan issuse at my desktop and it fixed after buying a new cpu cooling fan @ only $6!
Now my processor temparature remains same after even 4-7 hours of continuous working.Also do not forget to apply good quality thermal paste.You can buy this things from pc shops but i recomend you to fix the pc from hp service center as they will sell you original,good quality and compatible parts.
