    Hi Tech Team,

    My sister's laptop fan is always noisy.
    If you notice CPU usage is fluctuating quite a lot when browser and antivirus is only running.
    Btw, situation does not change even after I apply air duster on heat sinks. It;d be still quite noisy.

    The fan itself could be faulty in the laptop. Therefore the noisy. As for the CPU usage, bring up Resource Monitor and track which app is using it up.

    I'm installing Ubuntu at the moment to see whether it's hardware issue.
