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.

Your computer is shutting down due to overheating. Since the fan is making noise it is not working or cooling correctly either because it has lint or debris interfearing with the fan blades, ot the fan bearing is going out. To determine this you need to access the fan and clear it of any blockage. You will need to remove the keyboard to access it. Not all Gateway models are the same but once under the keyboard you should be able to work with it. CLICK HERE for keyboard removal instructions. If you find lint or dust blocking the fan exhaust at the heatsink and can clear that out your laptop will run much cooler and should solve your problem. If the trouble is with the fan itself you can still find a replacement and be able to swap it out.

(if the removal of the fan requires removal of the heatsink assembly you will also need to apply new thermal compound between the CPU and heatsink after cleaning the old compound off with rubbing alcohol.)

Blower not turning on , only if I turn it by hand first


thats a bad starting capacitor ... look for a small (about 2 or 3 inches) metal can probably rounded rectangle .. that would be connected to the fan motor with maybe 2 or 3 wires .. it is used to give the fan motor a direction to turn .. if its bad the fan wont turn at all .. just buz until you spin it ... there is a part number on the capacitor or you can replace it with one that has the same ratings for microfarads (mfd) and voltage (vac) and will phisically fit .. make sure the fan turns freely .. if not lub the bearings ..

Lub and wheel bearins


there is no need to lube the wheel bearings. yhey are a sealed unit and the grease is sealed in. If you think they are noisy, or are worn out, then you need to replace them. 2008 model, the bearings should last for many years.

The cooling fan on my Gateway 506GR has been noisy for several months. Now it "groans" every few minutes, but continues to run.


Have you cleaned all dust from the fan and inside the computer? If not disconnect all cables from the computer and take the tower outside. Remove the side panel and with a can of compressed air or an air compressor blow all dust from all fans, heat sinks, and all other components. Do not touch anything inside the computer without first grounding yourself to the chassis. If this does not solve your problem the fan needs replacing.

My Gateway laptop model TB120 hinge is broken. any one knows where i can buy a hinge for this model.


This may help and may not. It seems there are lots of people having the same problem you are. The best way to get a replacement seems to buy a cheap junked out Gateway and use the hinge from it. However I would be very careful doing this because the one you buy may not have a good hinge. As many people there are with these issues I would contact Gateway to see if they had a replacement part and would ask to file an official complaint. In addition here is a number to a laptop repair company, they will help you find the most cost effective way to fix your laptop. They are good I have used them for parts before. 1 (800) 999-4409
