Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
My laptop has just begun to produce a grinding noise from the fan area at the upper left of the computer. When listening up close with my ear to the vent, I can hear the fan operating (it seems quietly) with this sound over the normal whir of the fan. It sounds a bit like an automobile's ac/heater fan that's got a leaf stuck in the works. Occasionally a noise like trickling water introduces itself into the mix.
The vent area is clean, recently vacuumed.
My laptop is 19 months old, is used eight hours daily.
What could be going on?
Well theres more than one fan on the inside of your computer, so its possible it could be dusty and its setting the fan off balance. its also possible you have a defective fan inside and this sounds like a hardware issue, its possible theres a service enhancement on this model so i would call tech support to see if it can be sent in for repair, i know its not what anyone wants to hear but i do not suggest opening it yourself as it can be hazardous (i.e you get electrocuted)
Note: this could also be cause by overheating or being dropped (theres numerous other things but those sound like the most likely alternatives)
