Not sure how long you have had the Desktop. However it will be one of two things. If it used to run quitely and now is making lots of noise then immediately take it to be replaced. Fans on power supplies cannot be fixed. If it should stop completely then the heat that builds up in your desktop could damage your components. Second, if it is fairly new and has always sounded that way then you are ok. Yes, there are some fans that are very loud, again you can have it replaced. They sell "quite fans" now that make no noise at all. But first and foremost if you start having problems like unusual reboots, lock ups, etc then your computer is getting overheated and the power supply which houses the fan needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Hp compaq 610 fan replacement


Case fans ? there are/should-be, 4 screws holding them to the case.

CPU fans ? YOU should not be attempting to remove It. They are part of a Heat-Sink / Fan combination....with the Heat-Sink being attached to the CPU via Thermal-Paste. If you are trying to change the CPU...you may not be able-to. Some are not designed to be separated from the H/S. You would replace the entire H/S-Fan assembly.

The CPU Fan is not working. Contact Compaq or go on Ebay and see if you can find a replacement fan. If you continue using your PC without the CPU fan operating, you will burn out the CPU. I hope this helps. Good luck and have a pleasent day.

Where in the cpu do i find the battery to replace it in a HP dc5000sff


Hello,

Thanks and do have a good day.

Have you run any anti-virus programs? Inexplicably high CPU usage is a tell-tale sign of virus infection.
Computers do have fans in them in order to coll the CPU. If you don't have any viruses, it could indicate that your CPU is frequently overheating. You could need to replace it, or possibly

CPU FAN SPEED IN HP Compaq d530 Small Form Factor Desktop PC


The fan/heat sink on these models get plugged with dust very easily, use an air compressor or can of air to blow the dust out of the heat sink and fan. In extreme cases the thermal paste gets dried out and needs to be re-applied to properly cool the processor.
