Fan noise loud and always present


If the fan is very dusty that an cause a lot of noise as it will be unbalanced. If the fan is on all of the time, maybe the bios requires updating. There may be a GPU issue and that will make the cpu run hot.

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.

Air conditioner fan is making a loud noise


1. Could be a caught foreign object between A/C (air conditioning) fan and cooling radiator, producing this loud noise.
2. Could be a damaged fan blade, mowing the cooling radiator.
3. Could be a loud noise comming from the fan's electrical motor.
4. Could be a broken off fin (small wing) of the cooling radiator, striking the A/C fan, producing this loud noise.
