Try blowing out with canned air. It really helps. My PC sounds like engine if I don' t blow out every 6 months or so.

SOURCE: The fan on my Dell Inspiron 4000 is always running.

a couple suggestions:

try starting in safe mode and see if it does it still. It could be that you have some background program like Windows update or that new Windows active search function, which spends copious amounts of processor time cataloging your entire computer. Some anti-virus programs will do the same and eat up processor time. I'd try shutting down as many of these background processes to see what (or what combination) is causing the problem.

If this doesn't work, you might have a bad connection with your heatsink, which would cause your computer to stay at or your fan might be going bad, causing it to get really loud.

I'm not going to go into the possibility of it being used on a lap or bed or carpet where the fan intake vent is getting blocked. I know you've eliminated this as a possibility. Right?

HP ProBook 4530s stuck in hibernation

Go into power options, select hibernate on top, uncheck box on left and press ok or apply. This will disable hibernate mode, not only does use alot of disc space but causes windows to corrupt files and eventually will not start windows, one of microsoft worse idea's.

HELP!! My New Probook 4530s Notebook, Audio & Video Glitches n Hangs Making Annoying

OFFICIALLY ()? fixya is never ever OFFICIAL, only at is.
  1. sure get it fixed
  2. or learn how your self?
since you are here and not at my guess.
is you cant get it fixed? (in PC repair shop)

why not just tell what you do exactly and then the bad effects.
what audio are you playing,???
files (like MP3)
windows sounds.
what video's we cant guess this nor the formats (100s)
is it store bought DVD>?
is it a video filie
is it online video streaming like netflix or youtube.
what? we can not know what you are doing unless stated. clearly.

why not do simple things first
like playing MP3 file using windows, media player.
get any MP3, play it,

more simple.?
does the CP control, selected SOUND ) (CP = control panel)
then tab to SOUNDS
then click default beep, and test.?
sound ok? repeat 10 times, ok now.
if not make sure there is only one sound chip in system
not 2, like inside chip inside pc, and one outside say USB headphones. unplug all USB devices, sounds work now.?

look is CP+ DM device manger, for sound chips with errors.

down grading the HP software was a bad move.
sorry. why not use the corrrect drivers off
why not?
or even reload the OS.
using HP way.

there can be many CAUSES OF failed sounds, buzzzzz
ill not go to video, due to sounds bad , is first.
did you try using ear buds in the speaker phone jack to see if the buds sound ok>? (as opposed to the speakers )

1: not using HP drivers from
2: virus infected.
3: sound chips bad, (very very rare)
4: kids stuck sharp objects into speakers, wrecking them, try buds yet?
5: windows 7 corrupted, run "SFC scannow"?
6: 2 sound chips trying both both run same time (with head phones uSB)
7: PC is overeloaded, and running so slow it cant run sound correctly by having too many startup fails running, clean them out.

your tech can do this, step by step.... let him?/her?
