    Had the same problem on my Dell XPS 12 (9Q23) I checked Device Manager and found several unknown devices. I checked the properties of each, noted their hardware ID, and did a browser search to identify the driver. Turns out all belonged to the Intel Platform & Thermal Framework chipset driver family (fan, generic, memory, processor). I located and extracted the driver from the Dell Win 10 drivers cab file for my system and used it to update the driver for each unknown device. After a reboot, the fan issue was gone. While Win 10 does a pretty good job of installing many device drivers, it might miss some critical ones on some systems so be sure to check. Microsoft could've and should update the Win 10 installer to include a pop up notification at the end informing the end user if some device drivers weren't installed or were replaced with generic drivers.

    Solved. Occam's Razor, of course. For most, the fan runs constantly because the hard disk is being accessed almost continuously. Go to "Settings" on the menu. Under settings, click on the System icon, choose Notifications. Click to "off" the five switches on the right (tips on windows seems to be the culprit, but none is crucial, and all will boost disk access). exit settings and restart. You won't believe the difference.

    I found that same tip somewhere else. My laptop was suddenly heating up ( installed Windows 10 yesterday)
    All I did was switch the tips on windows one off and the fan is quiet and laptop cool again within 10 minutes.

    Hi All,

    After several days of research I found a little bug with Windows 10.. For my system (and I recommend everyone check theirs), Windows 10 installed 2 graphic card drivers. I disabled one of the graphic cards (obviously the one that was non-existent in my system) and voila the fan stopped spinning. I've had the system running for 8 hours now, running office, chrome, YouTube etc etc.. not once has the fan spooled to full speed. I really hope this is the common problem and it fixes most of your systems guys, Good Luck!

    Cheers
    This solved my problem! In device manager i found "AMD Radeon 7400m" and "AMD Radeon HD 7640g + HD 7400m" I deleted the first one and the problem was solved

    Edit, ok i had to remove the other one since AMD crimson gave an error that there is no video card driver installed.

    I have found what is going wrong with the AMD A series APU's and windows 10.
    Somehow my laptop thinks (dont know if its windows 10 or the amd driver or whatever) that my cpu is at a much higher temperature than it really is. Piriform Speccy shows 95C but it's way colder than that. I know that because the air coming out of the ventilator is ice cold. If i remove the drivers and let windows 10 install their own PiriformSpeccy shows 37C at idle and the fan goes back to normal speed. I have no idea how to fix this though, but now i know it is a software related problem. Who's to blame? Windows or AMD? I hope someone knows the answers to these questions.

    One thing that seemed to ramp up the CPU use and fan is a process called Runtime Broker. Run the Task Manager and see if that's the case on your systems. With the RTM version of Windows 10, Runtime Broker doesn't seem to misbehave like it did on earlier previews, at least on my computer. But some have reported it is still causing CPU use of 20% to 40% on their systems. If it is a problem, you can disable Runtime Broker in the registry. If anyone needs the detailed instructions for doing this, I will post them here on request.
    My user name is dka. I would like to request detailed instructions on disabling Runtime Broker in the registry that you offered to do in in the post quoted above. My loud fan noise comes on and then stops every time I do as little as go to another website. Then when I perform another simple task the same process goes on indefinitely.

    found another fix


    My acer aspire laptop cpu fan has been running at full speed for a while. I have been looking at forums of this specific problem and none of the solutions fixed it. Until I found the the fan was even running at full speed in bios menu. So I opened my laptop and disconnected and reconnected the cmos battery. Now the fan is running normal. I hope this helps.

    Thanks for finding another fix. I will save this information, and ask someone who is more comfortable opening up a laptop to fix it.
    Way to Go! dka
