The only safe way to clean the vents is with compressed air. I don't know how old your computer is but when the fan starts making noise and overheating then it is time to replace the power supply. Continued use may destroy your CPU cause of overheating.

Try using Compressed Air in a can by the vents. I would not recommend taking apart the laptop.

My laptop cq42 fan too noisy


Get a can of compressed air and clean out all the vents and fans. You can also use a vacuum with a hose attachment to clean it.

V6420us - noisy fan how do I gain access to the fan for cleaning? Thank You.


Cleaning the fan won't stop the noise, it may help a little - the little bearing has worn having rotated millions of times.
Try a can of"air duster" spray to blow the muck away from the fan area.
You may need a new fan - the part is pennies but the labour will be more!!

The fan of the Presario CQ50 is too noisy. Any suggestions?


1.replace fan.
2..clean fan [you will have to dismantle laptop or take to shop].
If you clean your fans your self ,always hold fan bladesand dont let them spin as they can back feed and damage your cpu or graphic card. DT.

Fan motor is noisy and loud. Also, the laptop freezes often and must be reboot or restored


I believe your fan is not doing its job. You need to clean the case out (compressed air) and try it. Actually, since you are having that problem, I'd go for a new fan. What you seem to have is a heat problem.

I have a compaq presario that seems to get too hot and cause problems. The fan is also quite noisy. Do you think it needs a new fan?


There is nothing wrong with the fan. Please go to a computer technician and check the coolant inside which require to maintain the temperature. Over the period it gets evaporated/dried up. Also make sure the air vents are clean and th computer is used in a place where there is sufficient air flow.

I recently had a new power supply installed in my compaq presario SR1318NX, now the fans run almost constantly. The air from the fans does not feel hot, nor does the tower. Is this serious?


Hi,

In a desktop computer the fan is supposed to run constantly otherwise the processor would get that hot the system would repeatedly shut down or even damage the processor or motherboard.

If the fan is noisy then chances are that the fan blades need cleaning of dust.

Other than that you have nothing to worry about.


Regards.

Fan noisy


Two common factors why CPU fans are noisy:

1. The collected dusts under your fans.
2. Your computer is running over the neutral power that your Power supply can handle, i.e. overclocking, high graphical games and videos.

solutions:
1. clean fans (power supply fans, exhaust and others)
2. replace CPU fans with branded and proven to be quite fans.. it may be an additional cost but proves to be very silent. :)
