Question about Mesh 80mm Aluminum Fan Filter Fan Kit
My compaq presario (4) yrs old SR1365CL has started to make an annoying humming sound. The noise gets louder the longer it stays on. I think it's the fan. Is this something minor that can be resolved? Need computer for business, cannot afford to replacecomputer at this time.
Often you can blow the dust out of the fans and it will help. In your case the bearings have most likely dried up on a fan. First blow the dust out of all the fans. To find the offending fan you will have to block the blades with something. Once the fan is found you can either replace it with a fan of the same size or re-oil the bearings. To re-oil, carefully peal away the label on the fan. There might be a plastic plug over the bearing, carefully remove it. Drop a few drops of 4-in-1 oil or sewing machine oil into the bearing. Stick the label back on and put the fan back into the system. It should be much quieter now.
