    It's actually normal for your processor fan to run all the time. It's not like the fan in your car, where it only runs when it's hot. Your processor is constantly working, which means it's always hot. Your processor would heat up and go into meltdown fairly quickly if the fan stopped.

    Here's something you can do though to tackle the noise issue:

    or you can replace the stock fan with some better quality stuff.. if you know what CPU & socket you have and how much space inside the case for the new one..

    Just stick a paperclip, or some object into the fan, that will solve your problem.

    I'm not familiar with Emachines but if the BIOS can detect CPU temperatures, try checking them. If they are too high, that would explain the high fan speed. Then the problem is how to lower the temperature. But before we go there, one thing at a time.
