I started working over the last days with my new HP ProBook 5330m but most of the time the fan is running very fast and noise, what controll options do I have to manage the fan speed and corresponding noise?

There is an option to turn off the battery in BIOS. Enter BIOS > System Configuration > Device Configuration.
However, it sounds like the applications you're running or the operating environment of the unit would make for a situation where the would always need to be enabled. If you feel comfortable doing so, consider inspecting the fan to see if there is any debris (hair, dust, etc.) built up in the fan. A fan should be able to run at max speed and not make such a noticeable noise so I am suspecting there is something caught in the blades which is causing an abnormal noise. The fan may also not be seated properly and any shaking movement could cause unnecessary vibrations.
