First, I would spray canned air through the fan vent.

I could not find the manual for your laptop, but on this link it shows how to open a Sharp laptop. Follow the setps up to removing the keyboard, then you may be able to spray canned air onto the Processor fan.

Fan is too loud


Every computer comes built with a processor cooling fan system.
The fan's main function is to keep the processor from overheating.
After long periods of use, processor fans can start to malfunction.
If your eMachines computer's fan is excessively noisy, it will need some maintenance.
If you don't deal with a noisy fan promptly, your computer's processor could overheat and cause significant damage to your motherboard as a result.

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.
Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.
While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards.
Power down the computer.
Disconnect all cables and peripheral devices from the computer's back panel.
Rotate the computer so the back panel is facing you. Lay the computer on its left side.
Remove the Phillips thumb screws that fasten the right side access panel to the computer's frame.
Remove the side access panel from the computer to reveal the motherboard and all internal components.
Locate the cooling fan assembly near the center of the motherboard.
Remove all Phillips screws fastening the fan to the motherboard.
Disconnect the fan's power cable from the motherboard.
Then lift the fan out of the computer.
This will reveal the processor chip.
Place the fan on a flat work surface with the label sticker facing upward.
Use a thin, flat-head screwdriver to peel away the label sticker from the fan.
This will reveal the access hole to the fan motor's bearings.
Apply one to two drops of lightweight mechanical oil into the fan motor's bearings.
Replace the fan's label sticker.
Use a can of compressed air to spray the dust and debris from inside the fan blades.
Place the fan back into the motherboard on top of the processor chip.
Replace the retention screws and reconnect the fan's power cable to the motherboard.
Replace the side access panel and its two retention thumb screws.
Place the computer tower vertically, and then reconnect all cables and devices to the computer.

Tip

Fans Buzzing


If you here a buzzing sound from your pc's case clean the processor fan! remove the 4 screws in the holes on all 4 corners and unplug it from the motherboard and clean the dust off the heat sink and the bottom of the fans blades put the screws back make sure the fan doesnt wabble!!! and the screws are TIGHT! And then connect the fans power cord back to the motherboard and turn the computer on before putting the case back together and make sure the fan spins and that should solve the problem! and make windows faster by not using all your RAM! Thanks for reading this! :)

Greetings, My Dell Inspiron 530S has a small


I did not look up the manual for this one. But most computers have a flashing light when the hard drive is accessed. When the drive is accessed you can hear it to. So looks to me you have a good working computer. If the sound of a hard disk is loud, you are in trouble. You should start making backups of everything if you did not do that before. If it is really just the fan, you should clean the fan and the inlet (outlet) of the airflow. most fans will accumulate dust and that will influence the warming up of the processor (your Dual-core E2160) causing the fan to run faster and faster, not capable to cool the processor enough. Often you can blow out the dust, without opening the computer, but if there stays dust in the commuter and you are not technical enough, please ask a technician to clean pup the compete airflow.

May I ask what Temperature you are referring to, and where you are looking for the temperature at/in?
In BIOS?
Do you have external software that reads these temps?

Motherboard temperature?
CPU (Processor) temperature?
ATI Radeon X300 graphics card GPU temperature?
(Graphics Processing Unit)

CPU temp:
What Processor is installed, and what is the maximum thermal limit for it?

Intel Pentium D Model 820.

http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=27512

64.1 degrees Centigrade, or 147.38 degrees Fahrenheit.

Checked the thermal paste to see if it has dried up?
Even if it hasn't, cleaning the bottom of the Heatsink, and the top of the Processor's case, and applying fresh, new, thermal paste is the way to go.
After a certain amount of time, thermal paste loses it's thermal conductive properties.

If it is a thermal pad, remove it, fly it out the window. They're junk.
Use fresh new thermal paste instead.
(Be sure to observe Anti-Static Precautions)

Fans are all working fine.
According to whom?
The tech?

Not doubting your abilities for one second. DO doubt the many 'techs' who profess so.

Computer case open, observe the Processor Fan. Ensure that is is spinning at all times, and not intermittently.
Also ensure that the fan is spinning at the correct RPM's.
(Revolutions Per Minute)

Same with the computer case fan's, Front and Rear.

Computer clean inside?
1) Processor fan?

2) Heatsink?

3) The area of the motherboard you can see with the computer case open?

4) The area Behind the motherboard, that you Cannot readily see, without removing the motherboard?

5) The ATI Radeon X300 graphics card?

6) The Heatsink on the Northbridge chipset?

Check the cable connection of the Processor fan to the motherboard, and the computer case fans, IF, they (Case fans), have three wires, AND are connected to the motherboard.

One wire is for Power
One wire is for Ground
One wire is for a sensor that detects when the fan should speed up.

Processor fan spin freely? Computer case fans? Feel like they/it, may have a bad bearing?

Let's diagnose together, and see if we can solve this.
If all of the above reads like a foreign language to you, I will explain step by step, and guide you.

My computer fan speeds up whenever I'm on the


Nothing ... probably ... your fan speeds up when the processor temp goes up ... the more you are doing, the more cooling you need. The processor is calling for more cooling so the fan runs faster.

If this is a concern for you, you may wish to consider adding another fan to your case. In any event, make sure your power supply fan is clean. Use a vacuum or canned air to clean.

COMP. JUST CUTS OFF AND EVERYTHING GOES DEAD. BLUE LIGHT BLINKS BUT WONT WORK TILL YOU TOTALLY DISCONNECT AND PLUG IN AFTER 20 MIN. T6528


Power Supply is the highly probable culprit on this. Call your local manufacturer to replace the power supply. Also, try connecting it directly to the power outlet (if it's connected to a power strip). Also, check the fans on the computer. All should be spinning and air should be coming out of it. Feel the air coming out, is it warm or hot. If it's hot then I suggest you really call your computer manufacturer or who you got this from since this needs more troubleshooting and probable replacement of parts inside.

My Acer Aspire T180 seems to run warm and the machine makes alot of noise, it sppeds up and then slows down. Any suggestions.


There are two things you can do for the possible overheating...first that fan noise is normal for a fan to speed up and slow down depending on the signal it is getting from the processor. Get a few cans of compressed air that you can buy at an office supply store. Use short bursts of air and blow out the heatsink ventilation fans, etc. Open the cd/dvd slot or tray and blow that device out, open the access doors on the base of the laptop and clean them out. If you have access to the heatsink itself you can get some thermal grease, take the heatsink off the processor, wipe the heatsink off and the processor and put a very small "erasor tip" size dot of grease on the processor and spread it thin. Place the heatsink back in place and tighten the screws in an even sequence.

Dell Demension runs great but loud fan noise that takes a long time to shut down. What going wrong?


I had a similar problem with excessive fan noise on my Dell Dimension 5150. The solution was to replace the worn heat sync compound that was between the cpu and the heat sync itself. (£0.99 ebay)
