Hi FXEF,

 

Did you follow our recommended procedure in Upgrading Windows 8.1? Mostly of this kind of issue is caused by not updating the BIOS utility driver before upgrading to windows 8.1. Please provide information if you have followed the procedure so we can provide right solutions. Thank You!

Hi FXEF,

 

Have you installed the AMD Graphics Driver Update, version 12.104.0.0?

The AMD Graphics Driver Update, version 12.104.0.0 did the trick.....  No more loud fan noise.

What helped me with the problem of annoying fan noise after windows 8.1 upgrade of sony vaio notebook is installing upgrade to the ATI display driver.

 

It has forced me to install nearly 300MB (three hundred megabytes) large package  of bloatware from ATI (when packed, after unpacking it takes probably something like 0,5gig) but fortunately it took the fan noise away.

 

And it took something like 30 minutes to install the driver and the bloatware (the installation process is painfully slow). 

 

If someone managed to make the noise away by installing only part of the bloatware package please share it here - what is the necesary component to install and what can be unchecked from the installation.

BTW my notebook is SVE14A3S6EB which is NOT listed as applicable for this driver upgrade. But it did install and it did help anyway.
