This is a problem that I have been having for the past few months. I have a HP Pavilion dv6 with Windows 7 64 bit, Intel i7 720 quad-core, and and ATI Radeon 5650 GPU. The computer's fan runs at high speeds regardless of what I am doing. The computer can be on with no processes running (other than the background) with a CPU usage of 0.50% and the fan is running like its at 75%. The computer was fine for a few month when the problem began, so I have sent it in twice to HP where they have replaced the heat sink twice and the motherboard once. The fan is constantly cleaned for dust. Additionally, the computer will randomly shut down by itself which began after HP replaced the heat sink and motherboard for the first time(there is a suttle clicking sound and then it shuts down). I do not know what that is about. I have extensively checked for viruses with Malwarebytes and Norton (came with computer for a year). I was hoping someone could give me advice on how to slow down the fan because it is a nuisance. My only other question is if reformatting the computer would help. Appreciate the advice, thanks.

My only other question is if reformatting the computer would help.

Obtain a Linux Live boot CD/DVD and operate it under Linux for a while, see if the behavior is the same. If the fan runs to the same degree, that would indicate it has a cause outside of the OS on the hard drive, so reformatting wouldn't be expected to have any effect on it.

Take a screenshot of HW Monitor and post it in your next reply.

I'm with killer on this. This sounds like it could be an overheating issue. Perhaps HP didn't repaste your heat sink correctly, and the high temperatures are causing your motherboard to run the fan at max speeds to keep it cool.

Sounds and looks like your overheating. Make sure the case is somewhere where it can get good airflow(both front and back), and it probably wouldn't hurt to open it up and make sure no dust is building up. If so, clean er up.

Woops sorry I didn't realize this was a laptop were talking about. Have you tried contacting the manufacturer?

- I should probably read your whole paragraph before giving input... anywho, i'd continue to nag HP since this sounds like it's they've supplied you with a faulty product.

Sorry, I was pretty busy the past day. What are the temperatures the laptop should be running at? And no, the only extra process I was running at that time was OneNote. Also, I have been monitoring CPU temperatures with CoreTemp for the past few months and those are the temperatures that usually show up.

I'm not sure what the idle temperature should be for the i7 720qm. Which HP DV6 do you have and what year did you purchase it?

Is this notebook sitting on a solid surface where it can get good circulation underneath it when it is operating?

Have you given any thought to trying a cooler pad?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Getting a cooler pad would be a good idea, you should get this one because you place the fan on the hottest part such as the hard drive, processor and grpahics and i bought this one for my cousin which does a great job.

My laptop is a Pavilion dv6t-3000 "special edition" and I got July 2010. I always have it on a hard, flat surface because the few times I have it on my couch it overheats quickly. I have also looked into cooling fans but this laptop is lugged around everyday, so a cooling fan would be rather burdensome. I just feel such a new laptop shouldn't have thermal problems so soon.

The only left is just HP's horrible fan design or the HP tech didn't do it properly.
