Well you must have damaged one of the propellors and now it is coming into contact with the fan enclosure i reccomend buying new fans for the sake of 10 pounds get a few new fans instead of playing with faulty ones.

The last thing you want is a PC with no cooling

Good luck

Carl

Laptop Fan noise:

This seems to be a common problem with laptops over a couple of years old. Dust gets trapped in the copper fins and the fan of the CPU heatsink and reduces the efficiency of the cooling, which results in regular power off's by the laptop as it gets over it's upper temperature setting. The fix is relatively easy, just remove the heatsink unit, blow it clean with compressed air, clean the old CPU heatsink paste off with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and spray a thin film of heatsink paste on the CPU.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

I am using a Dell Dimension C521 Desktop and the other day I noticed the fan started constantly entering a cycle where it would kick into high speed and then slow down again every 2 minutes. After trying...


The fans change speed depending on the temperature the sensors detect.
Give your machine a thourough cleaning.
The CPU sensor is usually located under the CPU if it's loaded with dust it may think it's hotter then need be and kicks the fan up.

Why does the Fan make louder noises when you run certain programs, and is there a way to prevent it from making these loud sounds?


If this has Smart fan technology on the mobo, it will do this as the fan speed is increasing to compensate for the increase in the temperature of the CPU.
You could , if the noise irritates you, purchase a better cooler, one with copper heatpipes and a larger fan..

A noisey or ineffcient Fan.
The fan can some times be replaced, consult your computer shop. This CPU cooler is for a AMD socket 462 if I am not mistaken.
Remove the fan from the heatsink.
Clean it with a paintbrush and dust it out.
Carefully peel back the sticker containing the fan information, this is the sticker that would otherwise be invisable when it was installed on the CPU cooler.
Using light oil, Q20 and the red nozel, spray a drop on the exposed sharft.
Then put the sticker back on the fan.
Please remember to clean the heatsink and to apply the thermal interface paste correctly as these processors can burn out in less than 5 seconds.
Reassemble the CPU cooler.

Please rate this solution it is the thumbs up on the right hand side of this solution.
Thanks

Fan comes on frequently on hp computer. dust etc


If this is a desktop computer, did you clean out all the dust inside the computer? You can buy cans of compressed air at places like Staples. Make sure you blow the dust out of the power supply and cpu heat sink.

I was going to say dust is whats causing it but then i relized you have opened your computer. So nevermind that.

The fan speed is controlled by the motherboard. The Pentium 4 processor tells your motherboard how hot it is. so then the motherboard turns up the fan faster. Thats why its louder when the CPU is doing alot and is quieter when its doing nothing. You can try replacing the fan yourself but i would recommend just getting a whole new heatsink.

they are cheap! I would recommend the thermaltake one.

Sounds like the fan is wearing out, as it heats up the fan needs to spin faster and if the bearings are wearing out it will start getting louder and it will also get hotter because the fan cannot keep up the heat being produced. You can replace the fan, most computer shops will carry replacements, also get a can of compressed air and give the inside of the computer a good cleaning. This will help keep things cooler as well. Also make sure that the air vents on the outside of the case are clear as well.

Compaq Presario SR1365CL (4) yrs old, fan making annoying noice


Often you can blow the dust out of the fans and it will help. In your case the bearings have most likely dried up on a fan. First blow the dust out of all the fans. To find the offending fan you will have to block the blades with something. Once the fan is found you can either replace it with a fan of the same size or re-oil the bearings. To re-oil, carefully peal away the label on the fan. There might be a plastic plug over the bearing, carefully remove it. Drop a few drops of 4-in-1 oil or sewing machine oil into the bearing. Stick the label back on and put the fan back into the system. It should be much quieter now.
