My HP DV7-1175nr is rattling. It sounds like a fan. I'm so mad because I just purchased the darn thing. Is there a fix for it or can someone tell me how to take off the bottom plate. It looks easy, but it's complicated.

Yes you can open the right side cover, but make sure take it out slowly, because some cover have Fan Connecting on the cover. it is the wire or cables that making sound it slips on the fan. so go get a rubber and tie the cables so that it will swing through the CPU Fan or board fun.... TY

I have a inspiration 626 Compressor Nebulizer it sounds like the fan is going in and out can someone please tell me where the fan is on this thing and how to fix it

I would suggest that you take this to the repair depot and get it looked at. I don't have a nebulizer like this, so I can't tell you where it is in the unit. I would guess that it is near where the hose comes out of the box.

Heat shield rattling noise engine

Go to a a large hardware store and buy 2 band clamps that will fit around the heat shields and clamp them tight. This is the manufacturers approved fix for heat shield rattle. The fix sure beats the $1000.00 for a new catalytic converter assembly. I have done this fix dozens of times over the years of my car repair career.

My DS lite is broken, what should I do?

Usually if you can hear something rattle after being dropped, then the small square capacitor located on the motherboard right beside the power switch has probably come off. It is marked on the board L2. Simply resolder this capacitor and it should work fine. If the capacitor is broken a new on can be purchased on ebay for less than $10.00. Simply look for key words "DS Lite L2" they also have pictures on the auctions further showing you where it is located

I bought HP Pavilion dv5 6 months ago and fan not working

Your cooling fan sounds to have went out,causing it to overheat and shut down.It also could be something in the fan stopping it from turning.Try cleaning it or blowing it out with it off.But it mostly sounds to have went out.

there are two things that come to mind from what you are describing one is the evaporator fan is mialignet and hitting its caseing in the freezer or the condenser fan behind the unit where the compressor is is doing the same thing pull the unit out and check it first as its metal and would give a closer sound as your describing
