I did a RESET a couple of weeks ago before I could sometime thinkn my laptop was off it was that quiet. Since the RESET the fan on my laptop is at max speed even when doing nothing. I cannot for the life of me think what I changed last time this happened as some of the services have changed or been removed since I last had ths problem.

What I have done.

Cleaned heatsink
Turned off all live tiles
Turned off as many off nearly all the options in the performance tab (translucent tiles, see contents while moving etc)
Turned off p2p sharing for updates
Cortana disabled
Checked for processes hogging the CPU there are none
Changed the power plan to balanced
Set CPU power to 75% was at 100%
Set ACTIVE and PASSIVE coolling policy
Checked for any unknown devices in device manager but there are none
Updated the graphics driver
Nothing has worked thus far.
Checked BIOS fans are set to variable

Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance
