I dont know if you can do tha by yourself but it might only be a cable that pass through where the fan blows through that affect it and cause that noise and in other case the processor fan might be having some damage in which cause that noise ok.
Have a screwdriver that can screw out the screws then turn the laptop upside down at the buttom screw out the holes carrying a keyboard symbol and from there you will screw out the four screw corner holding the case from there you will lift up the casing as if to pull up then turn over the system and remove the keyboard softly then there is a plain cable holding the keyboard then remove the keyboard clip gently and open the casing after that you will find the processor fan from there trace whatever may cause it to make the noise if you cant then you willl replace the processor fan ok.that is it then follow the procedure you use in opening to couple back the system ok.

Why are the fans so noisey


You used word FANS so seems you have two - probably one on processor and one on case. Unplug power cord, remove case cover and inspect for debris. Blow out gently with canned air if dirty. Retry. If still noisy, disconnect power cable to one fan and retry to see which one is making the noise. Then remove bad fan and take it and data on the computer make/model to a computer supply store and buy a new fan. Check that the hole pattern and power connector are the same. Take home and reinstall. Problem fixed for about $20.

My cooling fan has become noisy. What do I do?


It can be fixed easily. You can opt to repair or replace it. Start with referring to the online service documents to help you locate the components and some videos.

First remove the side panel and locate the noisy fan.

If the fan on the processor is the problem, take care when removing and replacing it. Incorrect replacement may damage the board and CPU.

For all other fans, try blowing air from a vacuum cleaner with blower or a standalone blower.

If this don't fix it, use a philips screw driver to remove the fan. Disconnect the power source and proceed.

Note whether the fan removes air or sucks in. It depends on the fans direction. Remember this or take a photo.

Remove the fan cables from the mother board but remember to take a picture of wires in case you forget which goes where. Or you can just point the fan away from motherboard if the wires are long enough. CAUTION: Do not touch or remove unnecessary components. You may find it difficult to replace.

Look for a sticker on the fan (some have it on the back) and remove it, put a drop of oil in that hole and let it seep. This should be enough.

If the fan does not have a hole, use WD40 and spray it lightly underneath so it penetrates the bearing. Use a tissue paper to wipe excess. Replace the fan.

Y Daughter Has a gateway laptop model ML6720 which the fan has been seemingly noisy but I just noticed I don't think it is going on .What should I do and what harm can be done


This is the CPU cooling fan.
Take it to a repair shop. Laptops cannot been worked on easily.
Without the cooling fan, the CPU will eventually die and make take the hard drive with it.

Error502


This is an error on the server side of the website you are trying to access. More specifically it is a "Bad Gateway" error which means that the web master of the site you are trying to access most likely did something wrong or is upgrading hardware. What website are you trying to access I'll be able to help out better if I know where to look.
*Note* it is also possible that there is an internet disruption (Not from your ISP) in your area but they are very rare.

depending on which fan you're talking about usually the fan on the side or front are the easy ones to access. The front fan is a little harder but the front of your tower needs to come off. You should see release clip on both sides on the front of your tower when you remove both sides. If it's the heatsink (the one that keeps the CPU cool then you need to get one compatible and you need to buy some thermal paste as well. This paste helps discapate heat. Without it your computer will keep restarting. I hope this helps solve your problem
