Two possable fixes. One easy, the other may not.

1) Buy a can of PC Air and clean out the vent as best as possable. This may clean out and possable to make a diffrence.
2) Buy a new fan and install or pay to have installed.

If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

Fan noise after a few minutes running.


Fans are typically a little noisey. If it's exceptionally loud or continues for a long time it may indicate the fan is no providing the proper cooling. Purchase a laptop cooling pad to place under the laptop while your useing it and make sure nothing is interfering with the airflow around the unit.

Compac Presario F700 makes constant humming noise


Sounds like its the fan . The more demand you place on the system makes it run hotter so the fan speed automatically increases to compensate

The fan is making a lot of noise. this has


Is the laptop dirty inside?

If it hasn't been cleaned out regularly, with a can of compressed air for computers, more than likely it is.

Laptops typically have a poor cooling design. For one, everything is crammed into a tiny box.
For two, there is a small duct, (Air Intake Duct), that draws air in.
For three, laptops typically just have 1 small fan.
For four, the Air Intake Duct is located on the bottom of a laptop, or on the side.
This is an excellent (?) area to draw foreign debris in. Another word for foreign debris, would be CRUD.

Hair, Food Crumbs, Lint, Dirt, Dust, and so on.

A laptop's cooling systems primary function is to keep the Processor at a certain temperature. If the processor becomes too HOT, it turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
NO Processor, No computer!

1.The excessive fan noise can be that the fan is spinning at top rate, trying to keep the processor cool. It's having a hard time doing that, because the fan cannot draw enough air in. (Clogged Cooling System with Crud)

2.The excessive fan noise could be that the fan's bearings are bad.

3.The excessive fan noise could be that the Processor is running at 100 percent, (100%), and the fan is running at full speed, in order to keep the processor cool.
Perhaps caused by a virus, or some sort of anti-virus program, or running more than one virus program. (Installed a new anti-virus program lately?)

My fan makes so much noise especially when i play video.Can someone help


The problem with fans is there really isn't much you can do with them. Normally they begin to make noise as the bearing assembly begins to wear, or it might just need to be cleaned. In either case you need to crack open the case on your laptop, then you can inspect the fan. You can try cleaning it at that point, but usually its easier just to replace it. The reason why it makes more noise when you play videos is because video media requires more system resources to run, which also generates more heat. So, while you have your laptop open you may want to check your video card (which should also have a fan) and make sure that its clean. A dirty video card will **** out a lot earlier than it should.

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


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?
