Is it an old fan, which was quiet to start with?, then you can try
1) blow it clean from dust
2) lubricate it - this must be done very carefully. If it's the type of fan with a plastic label covering the centre (the axle), then remove the label and drip 1 drop of oil (non-organic), then replace the label.
3) In worst case, buy a new fan - they're easy to replace if you find exactly the same fan.

Why does the fan on the hp 635 laptop does not come on at startup ?


if you have auto fan control the fan may not come on until your laptop heats up. keeps things quieter. if you want to keep it cooler but constantly hear the fan, then set the fans to stay on in bios.

Assalaam-o-Alekum and Hello This is Bilal, I have Dell optiplex GX280 with 3.2Gh processor. Iam facing a problem with a cooling fan which install for cooling of processor. Thats run very fast after few...


Hi, I have the same computer, and the stock fan that's installed has a very high rpm. It is a variable fan that can actually be set in the bios to run in a quiet mode or in a mode that is more for heavy work, like your gaming, or other intensive work that requires a lot of processing. Other tasks that require the processor to work harder are graphics, CAD, audio recording, and video editing and viewing. You will notice on your dell, that you can actually hear the fan go through different speeds depending on how much work the processor is doing. It can get loud, and you may even think that maybe something is wrong with your fan, but that's just the fan attempting to cool the processor as it's working. This is software controlled based on the temperature reading of the processor chip. To use a quieter mode, you can enter your bios during startup, and find the fan settings. Change the fan setting to the quieter mode (it actually reads something like "quiet mode" or office mode" or something like that - very easy to determine. Then save your settings and exit bios. I need to tell you though, it's not much quieter. There are quieter fans you could buy for your CPU, but it may not be worth it to you. I had my cpu sitting on top of a side desk, and it was unreasonably loud. I plaecd it on the floor under the desk, and now I can barely hear it. Maybe you need to place your cpu further away from you in such a way. You can even get foam and "soundproof" your cpu, remembering of course, not to cover the ventilation holes in your case, or cover any part of the processor or motherboard - just the interior walls of the case. A lot of techs I know who need their processor near them (disk and rear panel access) use this technique. Hope this helps.

Dell XPS 210 very noisy what can I do to quiet it


Hi, The noise from any computer is due to the fan. It is really the only thing that makes noise on a computer - unless you havce a bad drive. If you can hear a drive outside of the case, then it's about to fail. You can buy a quieter fan for your laptop. That will take a bit of investigation on your part, as far as getting the dimensions and wattage of the fan from your manufacturer's web site or the instruction manual that came with your computer. You would do best to go to a reliable and competent computer shop and have a quieter fan installed, rather than doing it yourself if possible. This mod is very simple, and can make your computer run better, provided you get a better fan that can cool your machine better.

Laptop shuts off after 15 minutes, even when plugged into wall outlet. fan runs quieter than normal


Most likely the system is going into standby or hibernating.

Check the Control Panel for Power Options, And adjust these accordingly.

If it is a Dell system, you may want to check your QuickSet options as well for these will often take precedence over your OS settings.

Let us know
Good Luck

LG Fridge Freezer display has CF error code


Turns out a CF ER is a Compressor Fan problem.
Had a look and the fan was not turning, although it spins freely. Apparently it's a 3 phase 12v fan. I was able to get a resistance measurement across it but didn't know what to expect.
This also explains why it seemed a bit quieter and why the water is a bit warmer sometimes. The valve for the water dispenser is right beside the fan and it's getting pretty hot in there at the moment.
