Make sure you PC has room to breath. make sure air can flow from the front of the case or side to let air. i say at lease keep 5 inches on all side.

have you checked to see if the CPU heat sink is dust free?

Why does my fan on my Gateway ZX4931 always run loud?


does it has variable speed feature?, clean the heat dissipator, is clogged with lint and hairs! and always runs @ full speed, also if you're already there, might as well reapply thermal grease to the thermal dissipator.
ALSO, because you will have the fan dismounted, is so cheap you can put a NEW QUALITY fan (or fan dissipator combo) sometimes bearings gets loose and the axle wobbles (because of costs all OEM fans runs on cheap bushings) new aftermarket PRO-fans runs on ball bearings.
did you checked if a loose wire is not touching the fan blades?

Acre z5700 turns off


A really loud fan can be one of two things - neither is very good to have for very long. Most newer motherboards support multi-speed fan operation based on CPU temperature. This keeps fan noise at a minimum because the fan only has to run fast (and loud) if the CPU exceeds a specific threshold temperature. The loud noise could also be from a fan that is starting to fail and is binding, thus running slower than normal. Either of these conditions is indicative of a problem that kills PCs - heat. Open the case and carefully examine the heat sink fins and the fan on the CPU. If they are caked with dust (especially the fins), then the CPU will likely overheat and shut down. Get some canned air designed for cleaning electronic components and blow the dust from the fins and the fan. Restart your system a see if the fan runs slower and quieter now, Machines that are in dusty environments, around smokers, or placed on the floor are especially prone to dirt buildup. Periodic cleaning with the canned air is the way to keep your PC happy and healthy.

Replaced motherboard and now fans are loud and fast


Check for proper connection, also check bios speed on fans and make sure heat sink is correctly installed... side note you have fresh item's and higher power faster speed... if there is a controller on fans lower them.

Dell 370 fan runs loud and won't start


If the fan is failing the most times the computer will not start because it will overheat. There are two fans inside the system, one inside the Power Supply and one that sits on the motherboard.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the case, Remove the cover and with a can of compressed air blow out the dust inside the computer. Clean the dust away from the Fans, Vents, CPU and Heat Sink are that sits under the Fan on the motherboard.

Good morning. my pc and 'an Alienware Aurora desktop and the problem' in the system fan turns to more 'of 1200 rpm using online games and the noise and' annoying. when the PC happens to all...


Good Day Ilreleonebia!

You should try cleaning all the fans inside your PC once in a while.

Fans, especially in your video card would spin faster whenever you used the video card performance by playing online games that rely on graphics.

It is very normal. What is not is the annoying sounds you are hearing. It should not be. These sounds is cause by dirt accumulating on your blowers and fans. Just clean and the annoying sounds will go away.

Dell optiplex GX620 loud processor fan noise like a vaccum. I upgraded to windows 7 and also upgraded to 4gb of ram and a new hd video card as well as a 1tb hd. I bought 4 more gbs of ram but windows...


I don't think you can install 8gb of ram into that desktop. If the processor fan is too loud check it for dust or any other obstructions. If there aren't any try replacing the fan - it could be a bearing in the fan.

My cooloing fans are running full speed all the time which is very loud and annoying. how can i fix this?


Firs thing you need to do is to find our why they are running full speed. My guess is that your computer is dirty inside and it is overheating, thus causing the fans to run full speed trying to cool it off. Disconnect everything from the pc and take it somewhere to clean it out. Remove the side panel an use a can of compressed air or an air compressor to blow all dust out the interior of the pc. Pay close attention to the heat sink on the processor and the cooling fans. When blowing around the fans hold the fan in place with a pencil to prevent it from spinning as this might damage the fan. You need to clean out the inside of a pc sitting on the floor every 6 months. If you have cats or dogs that shed living inside then every 4 months. If it is sitting up high and you have no animals then every year may be good enough.

Desktop computer fan runs constantly


Hi,

Desktop fans do run constantly, you cannot avoid this.

The reason they get loud is because there will be a build up of dust on the fan blades.

To rectify this problem turn off the computer and remove the power cord from the rear. Then you need to remove the side panel from the base unit to expose the motherboard.

You will see that inside the case it is full of dust. Look at the CPU fan (the fan on the motherboard) also take notice of any case fans too, they are at the back.

To clean the fans and the case you can use a clean dry paintbrush or compressed air.

Once the inside of the case is cleaned you will see a noticeable drop in noise.


Regards.

How often should a fan go on on a gateway? Mine is not running and computer freezes then I have to manually shutdown and turn back on


The fans, especially the one on top of the processor, should run all the time. If it is not there is a problem. The computer is shutting down to protect itself from overheating and burning out.

You need to get it repaired asap.

Loud racing noise from the tower e 3052


Open up the side of the tower and you will be able to see the fans. You most likely have dust/hair in one of your fans or one of the fans is going bad. You can clean it out with a low pressure air nozzle or dust can.
