    Fans Running High Inside Laptop


    I purchased my HP laptop back in 2009. It came installed with Windows 7. It has an Intel quad-core processor and 8 gigs of RAM. I upgraded to Windows 8.1, and since then my laptop's fan has been running high and hot constantly. It did not behave this way before I upgraded the OS. The fan usually acts up when I have 2 or more things running on the laptop.

    Has anyone else had this kind of experience? Thanks.

    Before the upgrade, did you update your BIOS? There have been known issues with excessive heat after the upgrade/clean install from 7 to 8/8.1. The BIOS update is being reported as a fix for this and over all stability.
