Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

Internal cooling fan inside the hard drive is constantly running loudly. This occurs after the system has come out of standby and user is on-line.


Answers :

This is usually caused by two things - overheating on the drive or a faulty thermal sensor depending on which fan is doing all the work - is it a new machine? if still under warranty I would return for servicing. Hard drives do generate a lot of heat - - try improving the airflow to the case also.
