SOURCE: My CPU fan suddenly started

The solution ..if it runs on this speed all the time it means something is forcing it to do so ..and usually it is the dust accumulated on the heat dispenser ..You have to take a look and if it seams dirty ..remove it with care and clean it ..
It also have several modes for the fan to run in Bios settings ..If you changed something ..it will probably need to be changed back ..go to bios by pressing F2 on start ..and in there look for fan modes..and select the quiet mode..This will make it run smooth unless it heats too much ..
Another option is to run it with the lid open ...cause it may just not have enough cool air ..specially if you use to run it for long hours..
The fact that the fan runs its actually a good thing ..if it would not ..you have all chances to fry the cpu ..specially if the heat sync is full of dust

Cooling fan runs continuously, even after shutting the ignition off


sounds like it could be a relay.

With everything plugged in and the fans running with the key off remove the cooling fan 1 fuse. Do they stop?

If they do not stop remove the cooling fan 2 fuse. Do they stop?

The fuel pump on my 1988 crown victoria runs constantly when the engine is running and pump is very noisy. When i turn the key on, the pump runs then stopps but runs constantly when engine is running. Why?


The fuel pump is supposed to run constantly when the engine is running. It is pumping fuel to the engine which is in constant need of fuel. It is starting when the ignition is turned on and then shuts down after a few seconds if you do not start the engine. This is exactly what it is supposed to do. You have no problem except for the pump being noisy. On a car that is 22 years old, I would suspect the fuel pump is failing and the noise you hear is it's death nil. Change the fuel filter and if the noise continues be prepared to have the pump replaced. It may fail suddenly or it may become hard to start. If you have never had it replaced just go ahead and do so, to prevent being stranded and a towing fee when it does fail.

Why does my PC fan run continuesly?


Usually, there are two fans on a desktop PC. Some computer have three.

One cools down the power supply and it may be quite noisy after a while because the dust in the fan. The second one is to cool down the processor and usually it doesn't stops, it only changes its speed according the heat.

If there is a third one, it will stop when the temperature is cool enough for the system.

Only on notebooks the processor fan stops completely after a while to save some energy.

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.

Noise from computer


It could very well be the noisy fan. Try tapping the computer lightly to see if the noise stops or changes to confirm if it indeed is the fan. Or it could be a noisy HDD.  There is nothing you can do about a noisy HDD but about a noisy fan you can stop worrying as it will cause no probs as long as it is working, noisily or otherwise. You will have to tolerate it. Sometimes it is the detatchable sides of the computer (you wrote 'computer' in your question). See if the noise stops or lessens when you touch the sides a little harder.

Radiator Fan continuously running with engine off, discharging battery


It is not the fault: for long time Renault has that concept, that is to prevent engine oveheating when coolant circulation is suddenly stopped.

Radiator fan can continue to work up to 10 minutes after engine is off. You should worry about it only if it wouldn't stop even after 10 minutes.
