Hello KOKOBEAR,

Is your computer more than a couple years old? If so, then the internal components, like the fans and heatsink may be dusty. When those parts get really thick dusty, the fans are not as efficient, and have to run harder to keep the computer cool.

If you're comfortable opening your case, you can take a look and see if there's a lot of dust. You may want to have an experienced friend or technician do the cleanup, as you may need to take off a part or two to do the really deep cleaning.

Fan running continuously


the fan in your computer is constantly running to cool down the cpu and it is normal for it to increase it's speed, your fan should run quietly even it increases the rpm. But if you hear a loud noise in the fan, i think there's something wrong with it. I suggest for you to check the fan if it's coming in contact with anything. If the fan is visible while your laptop is operating, you can observe it to know what is really happening. I don't know what type of fan hp uses on their laptops, maybe something is loose already on the fan so better check it or bring it to a service center.

Depending on the age of the Rainbow, it could be the bearings. Does the noise happen with just the Rainbow or from the power nozzle?

Minute timer is not loud enough. It was but now volume low.


Set the timer to 1 minute and then press the minus button to zero it.
This makes the timer 'beep'.
If it is quiet, press the minus button again and the volume of the beep will alter, running through 3 settings - loud, medium and quiet.

Desktop computer fan runs constantly


Hi,

Desktop fans do run constantly, you cannot avoid this.

The reason they get loud is because there will be a build up of dust on the fan blades.

To rectify this problem turn off the computer and remove the power cord from the rear. Then you need to remove the side panel from the base unit to expose the motherboard.

You will see that inside the case it is full of dust. Look at the CPU fan (the fan on the motherboard) also take notice of any case fans too, they are at the back.

To clean the fans and the case you can use a clean dry paintbrush or compressed air.

Once the inside of the case is cleaned you will see a noticeable drop in noise.


Regards.

5.5 Briggs & Stratton push mower running too loud


It could be the govenor spring. Get the model number, type and code and take it to a small engine parts store and get a new one. A new spring will slow down the rpm's and it wont be that loud. Make sure you remember how the spring was hooked up.

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks \

I would assume that there is something wrong with your exhaust again. Most likely its the exhuast donut gaskit that goes to the cat converter.
