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?

Hello,

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.

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...

Fan is noisy -loud wheezing sound.No dust. Banging on case sometimes stops the noise.


The fan has a noisy/worn bearing, I recommend replace the fan.
Banging the laptop base is not recommended, you could damage the hard disk.

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.

Gateway laptop - whirring, buzzing sound


if it's a continuous whirring sound it is most likely the cooling fan. this is normal. as the computer gets older this will get noticably louder as the fan has to run faster to prevent overheating.

Loud Fan and Slight Overheating


most likely sounds like your hard drive. Mine did the same thing starting that loud whirring noise and overheating a lot. i took it into geek squad at best buy and it cost 199.99 for the diagnosis of the problem and the repair ( if you want just a diagnosis its 69.99) and then had to buy a hard drive ( i went for the 320 GB for 109.99) and they installed it for free same day in and out. took the whole process about 5 hours on a friday afternoon.

Xbox 360 makes revving sound when starting and loading


It's not likely to be the fans. The DVD drive makes a loud whirring noise. If you have the NXE dashboard you can install games to the hard drive so the DVD doesn't have to get up to speed, which means the Xbox will be quieter and you'll have faster loading times.

Loud whirring. Not the fan.


The fan noise is normal on this set. The lamps are cooled via this method. Your users manual explains this issue..and it is the fan as you can see it slows down after the tv is switched off..
