Windows 7: Laptop is extremely loud after restoring it

Laptop is extremely loud after restoring it

About a week ago I decided to restore my laptop and re-install windows. And now my laptop is extremely noisy, it's the gpu and cpu I think. I have checked for dust, there we're a bit there, but not much and I have removed it safely now. But still it's like a freaking jet plane. Specially when using Photoshop or playing heavy games. The laptop has always been a bit noisy, but now when using Photoshop etc, it blows up like hell! I think this is weird, since this wasn't an issue for me after i restored it. I have installed all drivers and updated them, nothing helps! What should I do? My laptop specs:

Operative system: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601)
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3630QM CPU @ 2.40GHz (8 CPUs), ~ 2.4GHz
Memory: 8192MB RAM (8gb ram)
DirectX-version: DirectX 11
GPU: GeForce GTX 675MX (7880 MB)

When the laptop is blowing hard, open the Task Manager and look on the Performance Tab. See what the CPU and RAM usage is.

Also do this test: start the laptop and go into the BIOS settings. Leave it there for 5 or 10 minutes and see if the high fan speed happens then.

If it doesn't in BIOS, then start Windows in Safe Mode. Again, see if the high fan happens there.

I wen't to the BIOS two times, and it was still noisy.

I also wen't into safe mode, and opened up Photoshop, still noisy.

When I'm in Photoshop now, the CPU usage is around 0% - 3%, sometimes over 10% to 15% it variate often.

A bit detailed description: I can hear the fan on the left side, either CPU or the GPU making this medium noise constantly, and sometimes the fan on the right side keeps blowing up all the time, and cool down, all over again (when not in Photoshop).

If it is doing this in BIOS then nothing that happens in Windows is relevant. You just need to work on it from the basic system end of things.

I will suggest trying a System Reset first.
Shut down the laptop, remove the power supply and the battery, press and hold the power button for 20 seconds or so, then put everything back together and start up. Immediately go into the BIOS and see if the fan spins normal afterward.

Also, I have noticed when in Photoshop, and the fan blows up like insane, CPU usage is at 0% almost constantly.

Mariusgt,
Is it noisy while you are in BIOs?

Yes, while in the BIOS.

Your system (at the motherboard level) is reacting as if the CPU or Graphics engine is under a heavy load therefore calling for maximum cooling. I have experienced this on occasion, but in all my cases a simple restart or reset corrected the problem.

Your system is not correcting itself so I suspect a problem with the hardware.
  • Have you made any changes to the system or BIOS settings in the time frame this problem started to happen?
  • Have you cleaned the cooling system out using compressed air?
A long shot: take the battery out and run the laptop on the power supply only. See if it still runs fast.


Remember: do all of this in BIOS to save time. No need to get into Windows.
