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.

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,
The CMOS battery that your machine uses is a standard battery similar to the one in most standard CASIO digital wrist-watches.You can get it from any electronics outlet near you, just tell them that you need a CMOS battery.
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

It always gives a noisy sound. i cleaned it twice and remove dust. but it still comming. i hope its comming from indide the fan like motor. pls help me on this


If the CPU fan is making funny noises then its because the bearings are worn out and the cpu fan needs to be replaced. It has to be the fan cause you already go rid of the dust and dirt from it.

Very loud fan on my HP Compaq 6715b.


How long have you owned the computer? Did you clean up the inside after you ever since after you bought it? If not, the heatsink might be covered in dust, blocking the airways. If you need instructions on how to open the computer and such, just contact me.

The pc has a roaming sound while it is on


Do you mean roaring sound? One of fans is going bad. It can be in the power supply (replace power supply), the CPU fan or the case fans. Take the case side off and try to get as close as you can to listen where the sound is coming from. These fans are very necessary and must be replaced if found to be faulty.

Screaming fan


hi well install a couple of wings and your good to go!....:) the fan starts when the power supply is heating up from a big pull of current all you need to do is service the little jet - unplug the power - take a can of compressed air and blow it on the fan (while working to) - after you cleaned it take a spry oil can (WD40....) with a nozzle and lubricate the hinge of the fan (not to much, while working only if the hinge is opened from outside) good luck
