I have a five moth old HP dv6 computer with an Intel i7 processor and ATI Radeon 5600 GPU. For the first few months, the computer's fan was silent when the computer was idle or only a few processes were present. If I started to increase the workload on the CPU's, the fan would naturally kick up its pace. About two months ago, I had to reformat my computer due to a problem with my GPU. I have noticed since then my fan is constantly running at a high pace regardless if my computer is idle or working hard. I have cleaned out the fan of dust and it keeps running. It is a relatively new laptop but sounds like my 4 year old laptop. I was wondering if there any pointers or suggestions in how to slow down the fan and prevent it from making so much noise. Thanks!
