Hi this is the first time i have used this message board hopefully this is a legit question and not just a laugher... I have a hp pavilion laptop and i recently had the bottom off for cleaning. i noticed that the processor fan turns very stiff... is this normal? I have also noticed that since i stopped gaming on this computer the processor fan has never ran (this computer has two fans the other one almost always runs). I'm not sure if this is a coincidence or if my fan has a problem. I did a diagnostic and it all checked out.
My question is, does a processor fan just turn more difficult. and could i just not be pushing my computer hard enough for there to be a need for it. It is on for hours at a time but mostly for downloads and web surf. any info would be helpful.

Click + next to computer then sensor

Run the PC with minimal activity and see what sensor says

Run the PC with everything going and check sensor

Most PC's will shutdown / reboot if they have temperature issues.
