More than likely your issue is the fan. Over time fans can become dysfunctional due to dust buildup. You should follow the fan guide listed on this site at HP Chromebook 14-Q010DX Fan Replacement to remove the fan and clean it. If this doesn't fix your problem you should consider replacing your fan with a new one.

Chromebooks do not have fans.


Mine sure does. It makes a loud whirring sound. It used to not turn on that frequently as the power usage and heat of a Linux operating system is pretty low. However, it is now loud and constant. I'm considering opening it up and cleaning up the fan/accumulated dust hoping that will cool the unit and allow the fan to again be off most of the time.


Also keep the Chromebook elevated to help with air circulation sometimes using mobile devices on flat surfaces and on your bed decreases this...Also the various manufactures have cooling pads to assist with cooling. Try not to use when charging. If you continue to experience heating issues clean the vents and fan.
