I believe your laptop needs to be serviced. if you see dust and fluff, it might damage the fan and would need replacement

Laptop making a high humming noise that comes and goes


It sounds as if your hard drive is starting to go, either that or your cooling fan. These would be the only two things I can think of that would cause a "humming" sound. I'm also guessing hard drive due to the fact that the drive spins until the program is loaded into your RAM then lets the RAM take over so it gets quiet again. Just a thought, it doesn't cost anything to open the bottom and listen closely. Good luck!

Hello, My modell is unbearable noisy while cooling the videocard, what can i do? Thanks for the answers


Hi
My laptop msi 6837D Intel Core 2 DUO CPU 2.0 GHZ, TYPE T5750
WAS PROBLEM WITH VERY NOISE FAN.
FOUR SCREW UNDER LAPTOP NEED TAKE OUT.
ON LITTLE GAP SHAPE U PUT SHORT SCREDRIVER AND TAKE OUT PLASTIC COVER, this plastic cover is having around little clips/ ears.
you WILL BE SEE FAN.
TAKE TWEEZER AND TRY CLEAN FAN.
FAN HAVING 4x very little screw- use magnetic scredriver.
Between sheetmetal and plastic insert 9cm long plastic pipe already fixed with WD 40 spray( or Astral ,...) , push him to side where is axis for fan , bottom side and spray only 0.5 s. Turn laptop back to normal position and oil will be slowly fallen down, still turning fan with finger for little while. Try again second time and will be enough oil for fan. Dont spray from air have to be long pipe touching axis with bearings.
IF is still very noisy the FAN so probably is too much worn and have to be replaced by new.

Pcg-3c2l system fan extremely noisy


Your fan is about to go out. It will have to be replaced. Once the fan goes out your laptop will run hot and shut down without notice. To replace the fan calls for disassembling your laptop. Get a quote from your local computer shop, then try the guys at:

They will repair it and ship it back by Fedex or UPS and beat most quotes including the shipping charge.

Pressing power button results in power light and hard disk light coming on for a couple of seconds cpu fan spins for same length of time then fan stops lights go off few seconds later lights come back fan...


it seems that you have damage memory card replacing may fix a problem but its better for it that you bring it to a technician in order to check much better because the motehrboard may possible be the problem.

Annoying noise from inside my Vaio


I had the same problem with my Vaio, and I called in Sony Support and they called in a technician who came to my house in 2 days! Apparantly Sony got a batch of defective fans and if you are still under warranty they will replace it for free. Good luck!

My Sony Vaio seems to kick the cooling fan on quite a bit more than normal and even seems a bit noisy for a computer fan....is this the norm???


Fan on this model may start and stop spontaneously. This is normal. Although if VAIO is overheating this would be good idea to contact Vaio tech support.

Is Toshiba Satellite M35-S456 Worth Fixing Noisy Fan and DVD I/O error?


It does sound like the problems you have could be largely down to the fan not running freely and allowing the processor to run hot. There for a new fan unit may be required. However a little trick to find out if over heating is the problem. Place the lap top in to a refrigerator for a couple of hours then leaving it placed in the fridge with the door open see if it will operate normally while sitting in the fridge.
If it does then the over heating factor is confirmed there for a new fan unit will solve the problems. This somewhat unorthodox method has worked for me on more than one occasion Hope this helps

Noisy fan after a few minutes start up


Yeah. i had this problem too. the fan is noisy because it is garbage. it needs to be replaced if you want to get rid of the noice. you moving the laptop wen the noise first started is just coincidence. the heatsink is fine, but the fan itself is poorly made. The ball bearings get loose and so the fan doesnt stay in its vertical plane and it kind of shakes a little, thats why it makes the noise. if you open it up and turn your laptop on, and wait for the noise, you will notice that if you push down lightly on the center of the fan, the noise goes away, because you are creating pressure at it's center of gravity point which makes it stop wobbling. you wont see the wobbling with the naked eye, because its much to slight to see, but its definatly enough to make that annoying fighter jet take-off noise..

as far as the noise, thats the sound it makes when something is wrong with the battery (if you ever drain it all the way down and try to boot it, it will make the noise) kind of messed up noise in my opinion, but its not a big deal, as long as it doesnt repeat. 

for the fan, you dont need to replace it if you dont use your laptop a lot, you can try to keep your laptop cooler to keep the fan from turning on also. i suggest one of those USB fan pads that you put under the laptop, or a thermal pad, thermapak makes one for $30 i think, and it drops temps by 6 degrees celcius they claim, i dont know exact numbers but if def helped me. you can also try to put something in the back to keep the back elevated (where all the heat is) and the fan wont spin as much.

i know with desktop fans that get lots of use, noise is the 1st sign of fan failure to come, but ive been using my laptop with that god awful noise for about 4months now, and its still alive and kicking.

good luck!
