Can I install a fan?

I know this processor/system is meant to be low wattage etc. but i would feel safer if this laptop didn't potentially break down during gaming hours. I'm content with the fps it can give me during games so I would like to know if I can just install a fan .

Anthony, You may find you do not need additional fan by keeping laptop clean and using it on a hard dust free surface. Using laptop on blankets,pillows,etc. will clog computer up very fast with lint, dust, hair and fibers, no mater how many fans you have. Laptops have have vents located around the case allowing airflow crucial to the cooling of internal components. If these vents become clogged, or if heat-generating parts become covered with dust, the fan cannot cool the components properly. Lint/hair/dust can accumulate preventing air flow around the cooling fan blades, on mother board, heat sinks,etc., causing the fan to work harder and potentially cause overheating laptop. If there is dust in the vents, you should clean the laptop by blowing/vacuum out the dust and if possible from around the fan and heat shield weekly. This prevents dust from accumulating for the most part inside laptop and maybe a yearly partial tear down and complete cleaning.

External cooling mats can help, most importantly though keep laptop clean, for free air flow.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

You are ignorant, the red flyer, specifically the f272wm's do not have any fan, they use an aluminium shield to dissipate heat and they do a poor job, so your smart ass comments show a total lack of knowledge on this machine.

Here is a much easier solution. It is called a chilling mat or cooling stand. It has fans in it. You just plug it into a USB port on your computer. Problem solved. Here is a link I found. Tap or click on the blue link. You can buy these many different places on line and in local stores. This should help. Good luck!

When i bought my Red Flyer in 2014 at WalMart (came w/Win 8.1)---- i hadNO clue there was no internal fan. There was NO, NADA information on how to treat it for cooling purposes. Mine died and it had to be thrown out. Unacceptable for a unit purchased in 2014. Never ever heard of any computer without a cooling mechanism.

HP is OFF my list forever in the computer/laptop world. They need to just stick with printers.

PS: a girlfriend of mine also lost her Red Flyer. We're not computer novices either. VERY poor company which does this in the name of inexpensive for a customer.

The second cooling fan to be attached to the laptop will hinder the air flow in the case and do more harm than good. The air drawn from the computer vents is designed to be expelled from the exhaust fan. Perhaps it would make sense to position a second fan in a position that is farthest from the exhaust fan, so as to let in air.

Enginckc, you are a dumbass leave this site. These models laptops have no cooling fan, just an aluminum heat sink which does a very bad job of drawing heat from the cpu. I did find that after replacing the heat sink plate, that a standard heatsink with no fan was able to keep the cpu about 5 degrees cooler. The reason you can not add a fan to this board is because there is no power connector to get power to the fan. It is not installed on these mobo's because that just use an aluminum sheet to act as a heat sink.
