My Toshiba L875D-S7332 laptop came with Windows 8, and when the free updates for Windows 8.1 and 10 came, I took them.
It is becoming very bothersome how much the fan runs. When I make webcam calls, the people I am talking with are always hearing the fan. (I can wear a headset, but I want to solve the problem.)
I notice that the fan certainly gets louder when there's intense activity on the CPU, but it also does at times when there isn't much going on. Additionally, it's moderately loud nearly all the time.
I'd guess this has been going on for at least half a year, maybe a whole year, or maybe as long as Windows 10 has been out.
I've boosted the back of the computer, so that the air can flow better around the fan, but that does not seem to make any difference.
Is this maybe a problem with the BIOS? If it is (or isn't) how might I approach this problem and solve it?
