Laptop Fancontrol

    Problem: Noisy Fan, constantly running.
    Possible Solution: Reduce fan speed, set temperatures so fan does not run constant.

    All of my attempts have been with failure.

    I have read multiple tutorials, manuals, and forum threads on the topic. In hopes of finding some resolution, im asking this community for any information they can lend. If anyone can help suggest how to control the fan speed and fan on / off i would appreciate it.

    Thank you in advance.

    Try to check your BIOS. In my laptop I can't control my fan manually but BIOS does.

    Bios fancontrol

    Thank you for the response.

    I have tried that. No luck in BIOS. I ended up opening the laptop. I cleaned it out and swapped out the fan. This helped but it is still loud. The more I read tells me that hp is just a noisy machine.

    Is it a Dell? I know for a fact dell has a diagnostic centre that can be used to check up on the fan's stats and change rotation speeds.

    It's a HP Pavillion.

    I have similar Specs and also a HP Pavillion DV5 1235EE, i have overheating issues. I contacted HP support for this and they suggested me to install a new cooling pad for my laptop, since my laptop was fairly new back then.

    Well, older HP Pavillion laptops have a really bad cooling management system. These days i notice my laptop's Core Temp's are usually stable at around 60-70 C and dosen't go lower than that.

    I have yet to service my laptop and clean the heating vents. I figured that i couldn't control my laptops fan either.
