Fan spinning fast and loud while doing nothing

Hey,so I have an HP Pavilion dv6 notebook, it's 2 years old. Few days ago, the fan started getting louder and spinning faster while doing absolutely nothing! No programs are open at all. CPU usage is not more than 10%. I also did a system full scan, no viruses were detected. If it helps, the fan started getting louder when I was downloading a movie then has stayed like that for 3 days now. I don't think the issue is dust blocking the fan or the airways. So what can I do ?

I don't think the issue is dust blocking the fan or the airways.

I'll be surprised if its not, as the cpu is only on 10%. try a vac against the grills for a few secs to see it if improve things.

After that its probably a strip and clean.
