    When I first purchased mine, it was almost silent- very nice. Now- after two years, I can't get it to quiet down at all. Fan seems to run constantly, and when I go into bios, the fan settings are grayed out- wont let me do anything. Can someone recommend someting else that will help me quiet this down- it is causing problems in my family because if I am working on the computer, no one can hear the tv if they are sitting next to it!

Do the following:

Reboot your computer.
As it reboots, press the F1 key
When it goes into your bios, look through there until you see a page that allows you to control the fan speed.
change the fan to run more slowly.
Press F10 to save and Exit.

Hi I have a G640 model laptop, when I am trying to download to disc the drive seems to be making a very loud noise when the disc is being read, could you please help or offer any advice? Thanks


Does the disk get scratched when you take it out?
What is the loud noise like exactly? One continuous long scrrrr noise, or something like a tapping noise?
By download, you are referring to burning? Do the disks come out working fine and readable by other devices or computers?

You can try to put in a disk cleaner disk, such as :http://www.amazon.com/Maxell-DVD-LC-Lens-Cleaner-Blue/dp/B00000JPPI/ref=sr_1_7?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1308503466&sr=1-7
You can find disk cleaner things like that in bestbuy or radioshack. I am referring to cleaning the disk drive lens, not the disk itself.

Try to use a different disk brand, and if all else fails, I suggest giving it back via warranty, as most likely it is a mechanical problem with the drive itself, in which case you would not be able to fix it yourself unless you take it apart and try to find what is making the noise, which could take a while depending on your experience with electronics.

Hi my HP Pavillion ZV5000 fan runs loudly after a period of time and then shuts off. Probably due to over heating.i also already have cleaned the fans. Is there any solutions?


When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

I have a compaq laptop presario X13 04657 and it is overheating. The fan makes a really loud noise before it shuts down. The computer gets really hot. Any suggestions?


1) is the fan still working?
2) Turn the computer off, remove the bottom cover and clean up the inside by blowing compressed air into it. Be sure to remove all the dust and lint you see. Check the fan moves easily.
3) replace the bootom cover and try again
4) DO NOT use your laptop on top of a soft surface. That means no pillows and no blankets or any other type of fabric under your laptop. Do not use it on top of your bed either. Only on top of HARD surfaces.
5) Avoid playing any intense 3D GAMES. Most laptops are NOT designed for game playing

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.

Compaq Presario 3000 incredibly slow firing up, opening up anything. Loud fan all the time too


This advice relates to the Compaq Presario 3000 Notebook series but may also apply to other notebook computers as well.

The heat sink and fan assembly is probably clogged with dust and airborne particles. The clogged cooling parts can lead to heat problems with the CPU. When the system (CPU) gets to hot, the fan has to kick into high gear to try to cool things down. Once you remove dust and debre from the heat sink fins and fan, you will immediately experience better cooling and less fan usage. Your system may also be set for dynamic switching of CPU speed. If you CPU gets too hot, the system will reduce clock speed and ramp up fan and everything will slow way down. Use a good system monitoring software such as Notebook Hardware Control to monitor your CPU temperature, HDD temp and so forth. When the system starts getting too hot, first look at clogged heat sink fins as possible culprit. If you're good at electronics you may be able to service the unit yourself. Get a copy of the system's Maintenance and Service Manual or have a professional do the job for you as you will have to partially disassemble the computer to clean out the heat sink. Depending on the system, the job can take as little as 15-20 minutes once you become proficient at it.

Noise from computer


It could very well be the noisy fan. Try tapping the computer lightly to see if the noise stops or changes to confirm if it indeed is the fan. Or it could be a noisy HDD.  There is nothing you can do about a noisy HDD but about a noisy fan you can stop worrying as it will cause no probs as long as it is working, noisily or otherwise. You will have to tolerate it. Sometimes it is the detatchable sides of the computer (you wrote 'computer' in your question). See if the noise stops or lessens when you touch the sides a little harder.

Hi, it only means that the drive is already damage and you need to contact the manufacturer of your computer and verifiy if your computer is stil under warranty so that they can replace the drive with no additional cost but for some reason if you have physically damage the drive then you will be charge for the said repair so it depends on the warranty of the computer.

Hope this helps!!!

Very loud fan!! Sounds like jet engine and make the computer shutoff.


Dont worry Rob5150, this is normal in hp laptops, this should not be bothering u any more. But there are modes in which u can make the fan run either always ON or when required.

Thankyou

CD-R making loud noise, not reading anything


This problem seems to be with the alignment of lens, which can be done by opening the cd rom drive and change the alignment, but if its under warranty replace the drive bay
