It will speed up when the sensor reaches a predetermined temp to prevent damage to components from overheating. Are the fans and vents clean? Blow out with canned air, Electronic Contact Cleaner spray, after removing AC power plug. Is there sufficent air flow through the computer? If you have cleaned there may be a faulty/dusty sensor? Have you added hardware? A Graphic Card or other cards? Is it the PSU fan or the CPU fan or both? I don't know if this will help locate sensors : http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01635734&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=4006020#N513

    It was a BIOS update. If you saved an earlier BIOS version (5.14), then you may be able to flash it, though the system may tell you it cannot do that. HP told me this model is no longer supported and that I might be able to find help in chat support on the site. Rather than spend time doing that, I bought a fan speed controller from Newegg (Zalman Fanmate 2) for less than $10. I use SpeedFan to monitor the temperature inside. So far it has worked, though the temperature is better when the side access panel is off. The bottom line is that the noise (think hair dryer) is gone.

SOURCE: POWER ON FEW SECOND THAN SHUT OFF

hi I'm mhel, your 1st problem was your laptop is overheating, you may try to install a back case blower, which you can find anywhere. and 2nd your laptop doesn't show anything right? I guess you install your RAM in a bad way, try to eject your RAM and put it back again it should the trick. and next time when you tear apart your laptop get some anti-static case to protect your harware. good luck with that..e-mail me if this works...

Your cooling fan sounds to have went out,causing it to overheat and shut down.It also could be something in the fan stopping it from turning.Try cleaning it or blowing it out with it off.But it mostly sounds to have went out.

Don't try to fix it yourself, otherwise you will void the warranty. Just take it to an HP dealer and they will fix it for you, for free.

SOURCE: How do I access the fan on an HP Pavilion DV3

Honestly, try harder. If you've taken the thing apart, you're more than half way there. You probably just need to unscrew more stuff and pry more parts out.

MY hp 6730 b the Pro fan some time to fast speed .and som tym its help for few second befor this very slow and not working.


It sounds like your laptop is overheating, hence why it speeds the fan up. I would reccomend dismantling the laptop if you are confident in doing so, clearing any dust/debris from the cooling system and putting fresh thermal paste on where applicable. Hopefully this will cure your problem. If you are not keen on taking the laptop apart I recommend taking it to your local repair store for a cooling system service.

What is the processor fan speed for Dell Vostro A860?


This could be the result of to much dirt build up in the heat sink ports blocking vital air flow. Buy a can of compressed air and blow it on fan any open ports, this should prove if the fans the issue, the speed should slow down because of increase air flow cooling the laptop. If this works the machine should be taken apart for better clean out.

My laptop fan had been making noise for a few months and now just stoped working!!


Hello:
Generally, all laptops cooling fan start for a second just after power on and you may notice noises. These noises, comming from the fan, are because it is dirty. So, it may be jammed by dust excess. If this is the case, you need to take apart it and inspect the fan while booting the machine. Removing the keyboard would let you see the fan and clean it. Try to move the vane with your finger to make sure if it is not obstructed. Maybe, you need to take the fan out and oil its axle. Besides you can check if its power cord is attached correctly. It is not recommended to operate the laptop with this malfunctioning fan.

I hope this helps you. Thanks

Why does a table fan slow down after some time?


Revolving blades in table fans pushes out air towards the front by creating a vacuum at the back of the induction motor. Other than providing air flow, the gush of air also cools the motor. Over time, esp if used in a polluted surrounding, dust collects inside the motor and causes friction in the shaft. If left for a prolonged period, this friction causes heat eventually drying up the lubrication, causing breakdown in the motor amature windings and also a leaky starting capacitor, thus slowing down rotation and also a complete failure.

2. Fans must be regularly taken apart, cleaned and lubricated. It is fairly easy if you are willing to learn. My India made Usha brand table fan is 48 years old and is still running smooth - just changed the start capacitor last year and my National ceiling fans are more than 35 years old.

3. In fact all moving parts in any equipment must be periodically taken apart, cleaned free of dust and grime and freshly lubricated. It will outrun your lifetime and serve the next few generations.

My hp media center m7160n computer powers up, has a definite fan sound, normally the fan sound diminishes and the computer boots up. For the last several months, the high speed fan sound would not diminish...


How did you clean it?
The last one I worked on had the fins of the Heat sink totally blocked with dust. This will make the fan scream trying to push air thru the heat sink to cool the processor. If it isn't cooled it will shut down in short order.
You must BLOW it out. Use a pressurized air can. Better if you have a compressor with a nozzle.

The other issue may be the interface between the CPU and heat sink is defective. Heat sink moved or become loose.

Of course by this time the processor could be dead also.

Fan starts runnung fast and everything is frozen


Overheating. Try using canned air and blowing out vents. If you are comfortable with it, take the laptop apart and clean it out. If not, contact a local computer shop that can do it for you. If cleaning doesn't do it, the CPU heatsink will need reseated or the CPU will need replaced.
