The processor is working harder, getting hotter, and the system is telling the fan to speed up. If it just started after the update then so be it.
Look at what else is running in the background. Closing running programs will lessen the load.
When is the last time you cleaned the dust bunnies out of the processor heat sink and fan?
Please could someone help me. My computer fan makes a really loud noise when I play a game called runescape on my web browser. It never did it before I download the new update for java. Java is required to play the game. The only other time it makes this noise is when I run a virus scan... it starts the noise when I open the game just after a little bit and stops when I close the game. I have tried reinstalling java, removing the update which I downloaded and then the sound started, I have run extensive virus scans, I have tried using another web browser and nothing works. PLEASE HELP ME. I want to be able to play my game without this noise and though I am so grateful that the noise doesn't happen all the time, I just really want to fix it so I can play in peace.
I would really appreciate any help ! please please!
