Question Brand new Pavilion 15 is loud as hell

Jun 18, 2020

I bought the recommended HP Pavilion 15, version with i5-1035G1 and WITHOUT a dedicated card. It came to me today, I started the laptop and the first thing I noticed was a terribly bad work culture. The laptop immediately after turning it on (on the desktop, nothing is fired up) is very loud, it looks like the fan's speed was almost maxed. After a few minutes, it calms down a bit, but the fan continues to speed up to the max quite often - on the desktop, without anything working. I checked the CPU temperatures via HW Monitor, as soon as the laptop is turned on, temperatures jump to 75-80 degrees, then they drop a bit and varies between 40 and 70 degrees (again, on the desktop!). The clock jumps from 1 Ghz to 3.6 GHz, voltage between 0.7 and 1.097.

And now the question - what is wrong? Try to fix it somehow or return it immediately? The question is, is it something wrong with my laptop or is normal with this model?

Thanks in advance,
