Hi Forum

I have a rather new HP Laptop Pavillion with an i7 processor. I have started to notice that my fan is running significantly more than it was.

 

Can anyone give me advice please.

A computer will only run as cool as the environment it is used in.

 

Also check and make sure all cooling vents are free of dust and such.

Buy a can of compressed air and blow the vents at least once a month, they do collect a fair bit of dust.  With the machine off blow into the exhaust grill, the dust collects on the fins.

your fan and heat sink are probably clogged with dust,

 

its best to remove the cover and clean it out if you are able to do so

I would put a external fan pad under it to help keep it cool.

How old?

 

What's the exact Model Number?

 

Are you multitasking more than you were at first?

 

Is it a 15" or 17"

 

The i7 is just going to run hotter, and even more so in a 15" laptop as it is just smaller with perhaps a little less airflow.

 

Do look at the intake as others have suggested.  If I blow out a laptop I always take out the battery and dispel all the left over energy.  Then hold a paper clip in the fan to keep it from soaring while you blow it out.  This normally only occurs when a laptop is 5-6 years old

or in less time if the area is really dusty.

+1!  for some time now, I've used such external usb-powered cooling assemblies for both my laptops (one at work, one travels with me).
