Same problem.  I took the fan out and cleaned off the dust and the noise is gone.  I have also ordered a new fan from the following site:  http://www.cwc-group.com/fopv904dcbrf.html

They sell some things that you can put on the fan so it can run quietly without making any noise.

Fan making noise


To find out which fan it is, open the side and listen.

If it's a case fan those can be bought at you local computer store for a few bucks.

If it's the CPU Fan, you might be able to replace just the fan, or you might have to install another CPU Heatsink and Fan.

Hope that helps!

Gateway 506GR Front Panel


did you replace the motherboard? if you did with a non gateway replacement there is a good chance you will have to re-wire the buttons.

if not, just look for an oddly shaped "gateway" plug that plugs into the receiving socket on the MB. If you dont own a multi meter and soldering iron now is a good time to invest. also get some wire strippers and cutters.

Fan makes loud noise when i start car


Firstly we need to know what model etc. Noisy fan if viscus could be the viscus itself - fan blade hitting something on the shroud / housing. First check & make sure the small bolts haven't shaken lose. Good luck

Gateway desktop 506gr power issue narrowed down?


That was pretty unclear.  Is there a kind of burning symptom that suggests a short to you?  It seems to me that what happened is that either there was a power outage and your system thus shut down...all you'd have to to would be hit the computer's power button to turn it back on...or a fan somewhere died and therefore the system won't power up until you replace or repair that.  At least get a vacuum in there and brush out the dust so you can work.

What happened when you got a simplified system that 'worked'?  Was the power supply's fan spinning, at least?  What's the green light on, anyhow?

Loud noise


Typical problem in most computers, the fan is experiencing a "burn out." This means there is either something caught in the fan causing it to create noise, or the motor is going bad. there are two fixes for this problem.
1) open you computer's case according to its manual and remove the system cooling fan and give it a thorough cleaning.
2) you may need to replace the cooling fan with its recommended replacement model.

Hope this helps!
