Trumpjd,
Usually on startup the fans work a little harder then slow down. On newer computers they still have noticable fan noise. Most of what ou hear while the machine is running after start up is the power supply fan. When it starts to go bad you'll hear it all the time.

The noise you hear must be from its back-light inverter board. The ferrite core in the inverter transformer may make a high whistling noise and will be annoying. Contact any technician. It can be stopped by gluing. But is a skilled work.

Car was making a whirring noise and got louder and then noise stopped, warning light said check charge system. When car was put in reverse the steering wheel would not turn.


Hi there.
I think the power steering pump gave up. The fan belt possibly stopped because of the pump and then the system shows no charge to the battery
"check charge system" makes then sense to me.

I have a whirring or griding in my drivetrain. I can coast donw a hill and let the engine idle and I still get the noise. It doesn't sound any different going around corners and gets louder as the speed...


this sounds like(no pun intended) you have a wheel hub bearing assembly failing. they will start a whirring or humming noise and then a growling or grinding noise the worse they get. from your description it is a rotational noise and gets louder and maybe a higher pitch as the vehicle speed increases. have this checked out right away so no further damage is done. they are not cheap assemblies as most GM and Saturn vehicles have the ABS sensor built into them(if your Vue has ABS).

Loud whirring noise at start-up


The first thing to check would be to make sure the power steering reservoir is not running near empty, locate the filler cap for the power steering pump it should be marked and then add the appropriate amount making sure you don't over fill, that may make the sound go away if not we must move on to the next possibility, by the way if the noise gets louder when you turn the steering wheel it is most likely the power steering pump or fluid level is low.

When I turn on my emachine computer, I now get a louder whirring noise. Is this dirt accumulation on the hard drive fan?


Well there is no fan on the actual Harddive Fans, Unless you mean the PC Case fans, in which dust built up on it wouldn't make a loud whirring noise. If it is, it's because the fan's ballbearings are bad and you need to replace it.
The harddrive is a Small rectangular silver or black box on the inside of the case towards the front. If the loud noises have started coming from there then the Harddrive is going bad, and you might want to back up your data immediatly.

Post any comments for further help, hope this answers your question. Feel free to leave positive feedback, and thank you for stopping by Fixya!

My old Dodge Spirit did that ALL the time, and it was usually a belt somewhere. Have your mechanic check the belts...I bet one of them just likes to whistle while he works. <:o)

Fan noise when A/C is turned on 2007 Yaris Sedan


You may have some type of debris iside the fan blades on the car. Does the noise sound like a vibrating/drumming/whirring noise? If so, pull the fan motor out & look for debris. Common problem.
