noisy fan hp pavilion ze5430ea

The fan of my pavilion ze5430ea is running almost nearly on full speed and it's very noisy! ACPI is enabled. Is there an alternative way (PCMCIA cards or anyhing else) for cooling my computer without noise?

Ignacio:

Try the latest BIOS from here:
http://h20015.www2.hp.com/en/softwareDownloadIndex.jhtml?reg=&cc=us&softitem=hb-16500-1&prodId=hppavilion341623&lc=en&plc=&sw_lang=en&pagetype=software

It's supposed to reduce fan noise.

If you've never done a BIOS upgrade before, please be careful. Read all the directions and make sure you're getting AC power (not battery) when you do it.

Thanks Roger!

Since the BIOS upgrade the fan works fine, no full-speed-fan-noise anymore!
Thanks!
