Hello everyone!

As the title says, I am getting a high interrupt value on my laptop. Using Process Explorer, it is indicated at usually somewhere between 10 and 12 cpu.
It started at the end of last summer, which was particularly hot, and might have caused it to overheat, although I am not sure that this is the cause.
I have already carefully opened it up to inspect the fan and other parts for dust, which was not there.
At the moment, it is causing the fan to make a lot of sound constantly, which is annoying, as well as not performing as well as I would like it to.

 

Also, what I've tried so far is to see if it depended on any recently installed drivers, so first I tried to just roll it back to an earlier point, which did not help. At that point I decided to wipe it clean entirely and reinstall windows which only process explorer installed, which didn't help either.
I have also tried updating all my drivers.

I am not really very knowledgeable when it comes to diagnostics, so any help is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance!

The problem was solved after I updated the BIOS
