Hey there Ohio,

There are a few things that cause a normally silent fan to get noisy.

  • Dust building up - Unlikely, but check. Clean if necessary.
  • Some internal wiring brushing against the trailing edge of the fan blades - Likely only if the case was recently opened. Re-open and check, relocate the wiring if necessary.
  • The fan is getting ready to fail - Most likely. Replace the fan. If you have an unused computer, pull a fan out of that one to use. New fans are available for under $20.00 USD .

This replacement is very easy.
  1. Four screws out
  2. Unplug
  3. Remove old fan, put new one in.
  4. Plug in
  5. Four screws in
Don't wait until it fails, though. A cool computer is a happy computer.

Hope this helps,
Mike

Change the fan, it's probably the blades rubbing somewhere or the bearings are noisy. PC World sell spares and fans are very cheap to buy.

Loud fan noise on desktop pc


Could be the case fan or the CPU fan. Open the case and determine which fan is noisy by unplugging them one at a time. Replace the bad fan with a new one and you are good.

Blinking blue light and loud fan


When does the "blinking blue light" appear? As far as the loud fan is concerned, it is possible that your computer has dust built-up inside the case. Open it and try to clean it (GENTLY) with a blower, or a can of compressed air (do NOT use a vacuum cleaner). Specially clean the fan in the middle of the case.

Where can I get a new band for my KS4003 Kenneth Cole watch? The clasp won't open and I didn't want to pay $65 just for a new clasp. How much is the band?


Thank you for contacting FixYa,
You can contact Kenneth Cole for a replacement band but I am afraid the band is probably going to be alot more then the $65 for the clasp. I would honestly just replace the clasp unless the band is worn in which case I would do the band.
Sorry.

My Kenmore refrigerator is making a loud noise when running and when it shuts off it makes a loud clunking noise. Also, it is running about every 10 minutes. The refrigerator is 7 years old.


it sounds like the compressor insides are loose and you will be needing a new compressor, but just check and make sure the rubber mounting feet on the outer compressor base where its mounted to the refrigerator base are all tight and the rubber shocks are all good

My fan on my desktop computer is so loud, it just


Open the case and clean the dust and debris out around the fan.  Also check to see if fan is hitting any wires or plastic plugs and tape them out of the way.  Apply a little REM oil or silicone spray to the spindle.  Then put the case back on and give that a try old chap.  Still no luck?  Then your fu.k.d and need a new fan.
Cheers.

After very close inspection, I was able to read (with magnification) the worn data on the watch case which had the battery number inscribed.
