To clean the fan you need to use a small battery powered hoover.

If you use a big hoover, that will work , but there is always the risk to damage the motherboard.

Sometimes hoovering is not enough, because dust had penetrated deeply inside the fan bearing, mixing up with grease and causing the noise. In that case you replace the fan.

Noisy system


Can be caused by Windows 7, if that's the OS you have. Also check the cooling fans underneath they may be dirty and need cleaning, and make sure it has lots of air flow under the unit to keep it as cool as possible.

Fan Exagerated Noise


The noisy fan is most likely caused by a worn/faulty bearing. This causes the fan to vibrate in the bearing and spin slower and therefore cause overheating CPU problems.
The CPU fan needs to be replaced.

Overheating although cooling fan & heatsink are ok


u r saying that the laptop is overheating. I think it is from cpu overheating right. just to make sure that it is cpu overheating, just go to the following link and download the software around 1mb which displays each and every component heating levels.
from that you can find out the exact component.

if cpu is heating then just replace the thermal interface material and the problem will be gone.
if the cpu thermal interface material is too old then this type of problems arises

Noisey laptop


A lot of times the heatsinc on the cpu will fill with dust and lint, when this happens the fan goes into overdrive to try and cool the cpu , this not only will be noisy, but over time could cause other more serious problems.
I would suggest having it cleaned , inside and out. Make sure dry air is used to blow out the fan ports..if that doesn't fix it, post again and we'll try the next steps..

I have a laptop manufactured by acer , model travelmate 3275 WXMi , suddenly stoped work , I took it to one of the computer maintenance shop , they told me there is a short circuit in the motherboard and...


wow.. that's as serious as it gets with laptops... depending how old your laptop is and if it's a few years old.. you may have to think about getting a new one as it may be as expensive (or more) to get the motherboard replacement plus the labor instead of just buying a new laptop.

at least you may still be able to get your data out of your the hard drive: get an hdd enclosure and use that hd as back up for your new laptop.

unfortanetely laptops are not as easy to work with as desktops when it comes to maintenance because most of their designs and physical technology included in them is propriatary so proper servicing it's tricky, more time consuming and therefore more expensive.
