    Go here, install the latest BIOS and see if that changes anything. HP has to issue a new BIOS in order to change the temperature levels at which the fan starts. There's nothing wrong with your laptop; this is just the way the fan is programmed to work. I don't think the USB thing messes with the fan. It won't hurt to try restoring the usb power settings, however.
    If not, get Speedfan or some other program like that to control your fan manually. There's no guarantee that it will work, though.
