Windows 7: PC gets hot with noisy fan even while idle

PC gets hot with noisy fan even while idle

My computer seems to actually be running pretty hot. I have tried to resolve the problem with these "solutions":

-Cleaned PC from dust (I will repeat this action tomorrow)
-Close unnecessary programs using Task Manager (MsMpEng.exe likes to hog cpu and ram, temporarily disabled MSE)
-Updated the BIOS (HP F.63 to HP F.65)
-Used a different OS (Win10 runs even hotter than 7, yet Windows XP Live CD runs fine.)
-Used different theme (Tried built-in themes and even third-party themes)
-Use cooling pad at max rpm (doesn't help)

It seems to run around 120-130 degrees F both idle and when playing games, according to Speccy.
Does anybody know of another solution for this problem?

UPDATE: With the Fan Always On setting set to on, it runs btwn 110-120 degrees but is super annoying.
UPDATE 2: All temperatures are motherboard temps.

120 F is about 49 C.

Temps look fine to me. I guess it's a laptop--they aren't going to run at desktop temps.

What is "super annoying"?

Are you sure you have a "problem"?

Presumably you are talking about the Laptop mentioned in your System Specs.

120-130 F is 48-55 C, which is probably OK when playing games. Generally laptops aren't designed for playing highly intensive games & overheating can be problem.

110-120 F is 43-48 C, which again within acceptable range. Of course it does depend on your ambient room temp. If the room in which you are working is hot, then the laptop will run hotter.

This website might help with some further advice on running temps.

The fan was running fast, which is what is super annoying. I plan on getting more RAM very soon. Thanks for all your help. I thought 110 F and hotter was too hot. Usually, my CPU is running at 100% if the wuauserv service is on.

Noisy computer

Why does my fan get really noisy just before I have updates?
It's becoming a regular story, and again tonight the same thing. Fan suddenly starts whizzing and there I am spending a couple of hours trying to get to the bottom of it, to no avail.

Persistently noisy fan
I've had this problem for about the past year and I just recently reinstalled the entire OS and it's not fixed the problem. I can only surmise therefore that the problem is due to some upgrade to some drivers or something that has turned them into bloatware, and something is causing my fan to run...
