I am assuming the noise is an abnormal squeel or such as opposed to the normally annoying fan noise that most cards have. If so...depending on the fan and card model, it can be replaced. But if you are like me, you want it fixed now. Most Fans are sealed and if the bearings go, well thats it for that fan, but some have a sticker on the center of the fan. i you peel that sticker off you might see the bearing, and if you are lucky enough to see that, drop ONE DROP of 3-in-1 oil, or such. if you cannot see a bearing and you cant find a replacement, you should still be able to remove the fan (Carefully). with the fan off, you can soak it in either wd-40 or light oil. after this you must be sure to clean off all excess oil (compressed air is best) before reisntalling.

Asus essentio pc fan noise issue

The fans generally are not controlled by the user. If you post the model number, I can check, Noise means that it is either becoming dry on the spindle or it is becoming very dirty.

Humming noise when volume is reduced...also, when turning on do you get rid of the noise?

thats the noise you can ignore, it comes from every graphics card...more fast is your card, more is the noise you get (mostly because of fan)

Loud gpu fan makes a buzzing noise that is very annoying

How long have you have the graphics card? The fans turn at a very high RPM, and when they start to wear out they can become imbalanced and make a buzzing noise. Replace the fan if possible, otherwise you'll need a new card.

But first, I would try blowing out the fan with some canned air. Sometimes an accumulation of crud or a piece of debris on one fan blade can imbalance the whole thing.

My vaio VGN-FW390 fan make noise.

The fan makes noise in high preformance windows like windows vista&7. So it is normal, because the windows uses motherboard,ram and graphics card with high preformance so they get hotter, so the fan get stronger to cool them or they will be damaged.
This noise also exist in windows xp, but only when opening high graphics game, or being working with the laptop for along time.

Loud noises

it is very possible that that fan is mulfunctionning overheating the videocard. replace the fan. (you can by the fan seperate from radioshack or some local computer store. (sometimes it is cheaper to replace the video card since it comes with it's own fan.) but of course it depends on what card you have.

When i turn on my pc, there is beeping noise none stop, my screen show NO SIGNAL. Is this due to graphics card damaged.

This could be many things, graphics card, memory, etc. Try opening the case and checking to make sure everything is seated in its respective slot, including the processor, then turn the computer on and make sure the processor fan is running also.

Also, does this computer also have onboard video? Get back to me and let me know.

Cooling fan makes noise

peel back the sticker on the middle of the fan, and use a graphite based lubricant on the bushing.

Also there are smaller stick-on type fans that can be used. Normally for cooling chipsets.

Card Fan

Without the fan your card may burn. Go to your nearby Pc junk store and get a graphic card fan of same size and voltage. To remove your fan from the card try to push the plastic pins located on the corners of the fan's body. Hope it works .Don't forget to vote me. Tell me again so i may fix your problem. Thanks
