Question about HP Pavilion dv2000t 14.1" Notebook Laptop PC (Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 1.66 GHz, 1GB RAM, 100GB HDD, D... PC Notebook
I have had my HP laptop for about 4 months, and since yesterday the fan has been very quiet (except for when it's running fast, in which case it just made a normal whirring sound). Today I was on Skype for around 2 hours having a videochat (using the microphone and webcam) with my sister. The problem started after I showed her the room and had my laptop extended above my head (facing down). I then rested it very briefly on its side, at which point the fan suddenly became very loud, making a cross between a rattling and a buzzing sound.
Did I bump the fan somehow? I've been pretty gentle with my computer, but that's not to say it hasn't been bumped around a few times before. I don't understand why the problem started so suddenly!
Unfortunately, even though the laptop is only 4 mths. old, sounds like the bearings in the fan are going out. I would have it replaced. If the fan fails, your processor will overheat and that could be problematic.
