check if issue persists on quickstart, shut down your computer, press quick start button, then test fan & headphones again.

if no issue, then press one key recover button to perform clean windows installation, update drivers and/bios from the link below:

Re: S10-3 FAN LOUD ALWAYS ON AND LOUD HUMMING IN HEADPHONES???

I have exactly the same problem! I bought a week before the new s10-3. The fan starts to work, even when viewing simple web pages, or playing solitaire or doing anything longer than 15 minutes. If there is any activity on the computer, the fan still works and is loud. Temperature measuring programm points usualy above 56 degrees celsius and often above 63 degrees if I wanted to turn any youtube videos. It does not look as if the fan actually fulfilled his task. to stop loud cooling you have to leave the computer for about 10 minutes, if you do anything it works more loudly. maybe a problem with thegraphics? I can not work normally! This is not a vacuum cleaner! I updated the bios and drivers and did not help!

when it comes to headphone jack, even when sound is muted it heards annoying buzzing in the headphones. Therefore there is no way to escape the noise of the fan.

guick start optiont is the same.

have you tried to perform clean windows installation and/or de-activate the anti-virus?

press ctrl + alt + del to start task manager and check if there's any application running more than %50 cpu

The noise you hear in the headphone is not because of cooling fan. It's because of brightness of display. try to reduce or increase the brightness and you'll find out that the noise will change. To stop the noise you must set the brightness to the maximum. This will help you ;-)
