New laptop fan starts to whir loudly all of a sudden

HP Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I bought a new HP laptop in September and eveything has been fine since yesterday. Whilst I was watching a video on YouTube, I noticed a loud whirring noise coming from the fan. I decided the safest thing to do would be to turn off the laptop. I did and when I tried to turn it back on, I got an error message telling me that it was turned off due to overheating, and shut down straight away again.

 

I looked up my problem and decided to try a solution that suggested removing the battery, draining the power, and restarting. That worked fine and the issue didn't reappear yesterday. 

 

Just now, the same sudden noise happened again and I decided to leave the laptop on, and it stopped after 15-20 seconds.

The laptop is pretty new so I don't think it's normal to be experiencing fan issues.

 

How do I solve this?

Hello JC1512,

 

Welcome to Forum !!

 

Its hard to say exactly why its doing that. But  I have seen updating to the Latest BIOS sometimes have fixed these issues.

 

Use the below link to update the BIOS on your PC:
