E machines t3506 noisy fan or hard drive

Loud, varying whirring noise up and down sounds even sometimes but revs up so it almost sounds about to burst at other times. Seems to rev up when I work with graphics, but does it when sitting idle too. Cant tell if its the processor fan or the hard drive laboring. Where do I find a replacement fan and is it hardto replace or just plug in?

Most cases it came from the power supply fan. however sometimes came from cpu fan. or in video fan. This is due power shorted. Its easy to replace fan its only plug in..just bring the sample fan to the vendor of your pc.

Packard Bell oneTwo L5351


hmmm.. seems had a problem directly on the hardware side of your computer. my only and good recommendations to you is, first, check if your packard bell desktop has or still have a Warranty, if its on warranty, you can go to the service center to check the hardware of your PC. Second, if your computer is Out of Warranty you can check it by your self, open your CPU Drive, clean the dust inside the Hardware then check everything if all the wire's are still INTACT to each other.

Noisy computer fan


If its a loud "whirring" noise almost grindy...you need to replace that fan...it's about to fail. if it's a vibration type of noise, you should try tightening the screws first...if it's coming from processor fan, replace it before you fry your processor...

Loud whirring sound


Three things spin in a computer; the hard drive, the optical drive and the fan. If there are no disks in the optical drive (open it[them]), listen close, if the noise is from the front--- think hard drive, if it is in the back--- think fan. If it is in the front, back up all your data NOW. If it is in the back you need to replace the fan, (or perhaps just clean it) before the heat fries your motherboard.

The fan of dell gx280 producing a loud sound, how I fix it ?


Sometimes something is stuck in the grill and the blades keep touching it, other times the bearings have worn down and the fan or entire power supply needs replacing.  I used to hit my PCs noisy fan with the palm of my hand and the loud noise stopped!

Louder whirring noise when turning on computer


trumpjd,
Usually on startup the fans work a little harder then slow down. On newer computers they still have noticable fan noise. Most of what ou hear while the machine is running after start up is the power supply fan. When it starts to go bad you'll hear it all the time.

When I turn on my emachine computer, I now get a louder whirring noise. Is this dirt accumulation on the hard drive fan?


Well there is no fan on the actual Harddive Fans, Unless you mean the PC Case fans, in which dust built up on it wouldn't make a loud whirring noise. If it is, it's because the fan's ballbearings are bad and you need to replace it.
The harddrive is a Small rectangular silver or black box on the inside of the case towards the front. If the loud noises have started coming from there then the Harddrive is going bad, and you might want to back up your data immediatly.

Post any comments for further help, hope this answers your question. Feel free to leave positive feedback, and thank you for stopping by Fixya!

Emachine T3508 Loud Loud Loud


The only sure way to quiet it down is to replace the hard drives with newer ones, that you have selected based on their noise rating, AND to replace all the fans in the machine with fans that you have selected based on their noise rating. I did this for my self-built machine last year and never regretted spending the money on new drives and new fans. It's SO much quieter! ;)
