Fan makes a lot of noise, then computer suddenly shuts down

I have had the computer formatted and the fan replaced, but it continues to have this issue. Whether it is plugged in or not, the fan begins to make a lot of noise after about 10 minutes of use and then the computer shuts off. When restarted after this shutdown, it only lasts for about 5 minutes. Any suggestions?

Your computer seems to be overheating. Probably the heat sink or air path to the CPU is dirty, or you have a hardware device making interference with the air path way. You may also have bad BIOS configuration try downloading and running core temp 1.0 google it. The program will give you recommended fan speeds and will tell you the temperature of the system. If non of this works, your computer is a SIMPLY lemon.

Seems to be overheating. When you say the fan makes a lot of noise, do you mean an unusual noise or just that it is on high?

Fan on Dell M5030 Starts on startup and then shuts down but computer continues to boot


Lots of fans are variable speed. Meaning they spin faster when the computer is hot and slow down when not. It's most likely spinning down. If the fan was bad the computer will either shutdown or generate an error during BIOS and halt the boot process.

My Toshiba laptop P205D-S7802 is starting to make a sound like the fan motor is starting to go out. Can this motor be replaced?


Yes, it sounds like your CPU Fan is about to blow. Once it goes completely out and not turn on, your laptop will run hot and shut down. The fan is replaceable and they don't cost a lot. However your laptop will have to be completely disassembled to get to it and therein lies the cost. Get a quote from your local repair shop, then try these guys at: http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com
They will repair it and ship it back via Fedex or UPS and their price will beat most quotes including the shipping.

Suddenly shut down


When the CPU in the computer or laptopoverheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot upagain until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then theCPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

What would cause my aspire 5630 to shut down sporadically?


Shut down sporadically, caused by rising temperatures on the processor (processor overheat). Processor overheat, caused by damage to the processor fan. Processor fan function to reduce the processor temperature.

Possibilities and solutions
1. The possibility of sluggish processor fan. Processor fan spins, with a low speed, so it can not reduce the processor temperature.
Solution: clean the processor fan with a vacuum cleaner, or replace the processor fan.
2. The possibility of fan processor die.
Solution: replace the processor fan.

The characteristics of damage to the processor fan
After the laptop is turned off (more than 1 hour), the laptop can turn on and survive + - 30 minutes. In the period of + - 30 minutes, the laptop died suddenly, because the processor temperature exceeds safe limits (shut down temperature).

How to check
Laptop is turned off (more than 1 hour), then turn on. Download and install software to check the processor temperature. Ex. Real Temp 3.60. See the change in temperature. If the temperature continues to rise, it can certainly cause damage to the processor fan.
- Normal temperature, when first turned on + - 38oC
- Normal temperature, after turn on for hours 40oC - 45oC
- Temperature overheat processor, when first turned on 60oC - 65oC

You should send it to them, it absolutely sounds like the computer is overheating which would be the cause of a faulty fan. Make sure you back up all of your information prior to sending the computer out, as they won't hesitate to reset the computer back to its factory settings. Continuing to use the computer in its current state could cause more permanent damage to the computer, so back it up and send it out as soon as possible.

Fan making noises overheating?


This is a very common problem with Acer Aspire5315 Notebook and in some cases the Laptop automatically just shuts down and things get very annoying in hot summers

If you have not opened a Laptop before then I will strongly recommend you to take this Laptop to a technician and get it serviced in front of yourself. The technician should open the body of the Laptop take out and blow air into the fan which should remove a lot of dust choking the fan making this noise. The other parts should also be cleaned in the laptop service process such as the fan duct leading to the CPU. When service is done on this PC it will remove 80% of the problem.
If you still face the sudden shut down problem. It will be due to the flakiness of the fan and you need to download a software usually developed by third parties and sometimes free to download just use the right keywords on you search engine and easy to install and which controls the timing of the CPU fan to start and stop.

Regards,
Tauqeer

Fan became way too noisy, my wife keeps telling me to shut it down so she can sleep. I need to work late. Can I replace the fan? Do you have a tutorial how to do it? Is there any other way to fix this?


Don't worry thats not a big problem, you have a lot of dust deposited on the fan, thats why its making so noise.
Once you clean it, your fan will make very less noise, the way it did before.

Sounds like you have a hardware fan & vent, the CPU shuts down when it gets too hot.
Check the fan, it should spin freely, clean the dust off the fan and heatsink assembly. Replace the fan if necessary.
When you use the laptop, make sure none of the vents are covered.
