Rattling Fan Noise

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.

its likely the fan. if it sounds like metal clicking or grinding, its the fan bearings.

it could also simply be the plastic fan case rattling/rubbing against another hood accessory.

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.

Iam using HP Desktop D530 when i open some programmes but processor fan runs so fast and loud 2 gb ram in my pc and hard disk is 20 gb how can i reduce noice of fan ?


To reduce the fan noise, open the PC Case and clean the fan. Also, proper ventilation keeps the system cool and the fan runs at lower speed.

Hope this helps!

Fan noise after a few minutes running.


Fans are typically a little noisey. If it's exceptionally loud or continues for a long time it may indicate the fan is no providing the proper cooling. Purchase a laptop cooling pad to place under the laptop while your useing it and make sure nothing is interfering with the airflow around the unit.

GSH25JFRFWW evaporator fan makes loud deep noise at times


GE refrigerators have a faulty design, and so don't defrost completely, so ice builds up in the evaporator coils and on and in the evap. fan motor. Melting the ice will make the fridge more efficient, and the fan quiet again.

The slow, easy way to fix is take out all the food, unplug the fridge, leave doors open all day. Ice will melt, and all will be fine ... for a few months, until the ice builds up again. The fast way is here.

Zt desktop rear fan is very noisy upon startup. usually will quiet down after a while or with a smack. Have already cleaned all fans. Sound appears to come from the fan in the very back.


depends on how much use the fan has had in its life, ive got a new pc and the 120mm fan supplied in the rear is not the top of the range and is already making a noise after only a few months of service life. just bite the bullet and buy a new one, you get what you pay for in terms of fans..go for a ball-raced one, not a sintered bronze oiled for life bearing,the fan impellers only need to be slightly out of balance at high speed and they will wear the bearings very fast indeed. i run rc electric planes powered by very fast fans ( 15000-35000 rpm ) and it realy shows on them...good luck & buy a new one :)

Grinding fan noise HP dv6 1130TX


First, if you just purchased the unit, you should have the problem fixed by HP under warranty.
HP offers a extended 1 year from the date of purchase. Thats 2 years on startup problems.
You are correct on the noise comming from the fan.
This will not go away and may get worse.
If the fan slows down or stops when needed, the CPU will go for a walk.
Email HP customer care and log your problem.
Make sure you have reg. your unit first.

Loud fan noise


hmm, it's very possible that the new fan is unable to spin fast enough to draw enough heat away fast enough. I'm guessing that this a separate video card and not the onboard video of the motherboard? and, is it the video card fan that is making all the noise?

Loud air intake engine noise on startup


I would guess it is the electronic fan clutch. It will cause the fan to run too fast (very loud) and the light will come on sometimes.
