I have a Radeon R9 290 Gaming, and the fans just started to run at 100% (card was idle) and continue to do so constantly. Any ideas as to the cause?

PS: There have been no hardware or software changes.

You should check the cooler boost button first. And download/update latest BIOS and EC firmware from MSI website.
 

What kind of notebook do you have? I would suggest exporting system info by latest Help Desk and post them in here. Maybe someone could help check the software environment.

You could try downloading MSI Afterburner and then manually changing the settings on the fan. Even if this doesn't work, Afterburner is still quite a useful tool.
Here is a link to a download: https://www.msi.com/page/afterburner
And here is a tutorial on how to change fan settings (if it is necessary lol): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIrCBx0yxQI
