Fan noise problem

Fan runs on high most of the time when it does any kind of searching or game playing. Computer not getting warm at all.

Anything I can do to stop it or make it not so frequent?
I have tried disabling at startup but it doesn't make a difference.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
wwrafter

    Ok, how do you get to the fan? I tried taking out all the screws on the back but something still seems to be holding it on. Is there a lever or switch I have to move or push?

    Thank you

Dell d610 shuts down while playing games


Some games require more processor use, some less.

If the games that cause your computer to shut down feature high resolution graphics or fast 3D rendering, then the problem could be insufficient processor cooling. Once the processor gets overheated, it goes into thermal shut down.

If, while you play, the computer runs hot before it shuts down (check the cooling fan outlet), then these are some of the possible reasons:

-cooling fan blades could be obstructed by dust - cooling fan needs to be cleaned or replaced

-heatsink radiator and / or air outlet could be obstructed by dust - also need(s) to be cleaned

-thermally conductive grease on the microprocessor heatsink could be
partially or entirely dried up - old grease needs to be carefully removed and new grease applied (caution - do not use any kind of thermal grease that contains metallic particles like silver or aluminium - you might short out the processor - only use the kinds which are electrically nonconductive)

of course the problem could be elsewhere, but the above mentioned problems turn out to be a common issue with many laptop computers after a few years use, regardless of manufacturer brand and model, also it could be any of or the combination of any or all of the above problems (obstructed air outlet leads to more dust being deposited on the fan blades, more dust on the fan and outlet leads to processor overheating which leads to thermal grease drying which leads to even more overheating and so on...)

hope this helps somewhat

I've got a nVidia Zotac Geforce GT240..a few days later whenevr i played a game it start a buzzing noise...Now whener i play after 5 mins the monitor stops displaying anything and im forced to res


It sounds like the shutdown is due to the card overheating. Does your card have a fan on it? If so that is probably where the buzzing noise came from. The fan either broke or is disconnected and thus the card is overheating. Try blowing out the fan with compressed air and making sure it is properly connected. If it is broken or you have no fan you may need to order a replacement fan or heat sync to fix your problem or get a new video card.

PS3 Loud Fan Noise


It sounds like it needs to be cleaned, just blow some compressed air into the fan area, unless you can actually get it opened, then that would be better.
Hope this helps!

Playstation3 turns on and then turns back off with a blinking red light and has a disc inside


O.K sounds like you could have alot of reasons:, one have you cleaned the intake fan grill, cause it will cause it to run "Hot", WHATEVER YOU DO DO NOT RUN IT NEAR A "VAC", that will create Static that will play all kinds of heck with it! use a can of compressed air with it, also check to make sure that your "eye" is O.K. one way you can do this is to run a regular "cd" cleaner disk through it, it will play sound,and (or) music, if this plays o.k. then chances are your "eye" is on track,if these two help, but the "problem still happens from time to time, invest in a small fan, (like the clip on kind), and point it towards the clean air intake, this should stop it from running "hot", make sure you keep your games "clean", a good way is to just squirt some dawn on the bottom of the disk, (and Gently) rub it around with your finger, then under cold to WARM water ONLY, no HOT, rinse the game and "pat" it dry with a towel again don't rub, let me know if this helps, happy 4th, and god bless

GE XL 1800 quit heating


I don't like to pass on your problem but it sounds very much like either the high voltage supply ot the magnetron has bit the dust.
Either one would make the repair marginal at best.

This is apparently not a very good unit, many microwaves jsut kind of fade away as their magnetron emissions decay.

This one seems to have a bad rep. look at this link:

Sorry, have owned a lemon or two myself.

Loud Dell desktop


Any fan that is making noise you would need to replace. There is also never a need to use alcohol to clean a fan. Some computer air or a light wipe down will do just fine.
If you have any other questions let me know.
