    Yes, that is quite a lot for FF. Using IE7 is only using 131K on my system.



    I didn't ask before but how much RAM do you have?

    First thing I would do is a thorough full system scan with a good antivirus program.

Hit control alt delete to open task manager and see how many programs you have running. mabey your cpu is always running hot because its always maxed out. check for any processes taking up an excessive amount of cpu% at idle.

Hello strabley,
Have you ever cleaned the inside of your computers? Close it down completely disconect the power source, open the side panel and wit a compressed air can clean the fans and remove all dust accumulated on the peripherals ,
You should see some chromed screws on the back panel take them out and slide the side panel towards the back see the gateway tutorial here http://support.gateway.com/s/tutorials/Tu_842243.shtml
Hope this helped

Hi there,

Try opening the chassis and clean the inside of the pc. You can use a blower to remove dusts inside the pc. Usually this is the culprit. Excessive dust will make your cooling system ineffective so the fan will run very fast to cool it down. If your pc is clean, check if there are wires touching the blades of the fan. Also check if there are broken blades in the fan. If everything is fine and still fan is noisy, you have to replace it.

Perhaps it's clogged with dust and hair, try using a can of compressed air to clean it out, careful not to get any on your hands though.

Iam using HP Desktop D530 when i open some programmes but processor fan runs so fast and loud 2 gb ram in my pc and hard disk is 20 gb how can i reduce noice of fan ?


To reduce the fan noise, open the PC Case and clean the fan. Also, proper ventilation keeps the system cool and the fan runs at lower speed.

Hope this helps!

Why does my fan seem to be cycling at all times which is slowing down the computer big time


your fan has nothing to do with your computer slowing down.
your fan goes on when a threshold is reach in the cpu temperature or another component's temperature being cooled. the question is what's is causing your cpu or your chipset to work harder than usual causing your system to seem to be sluggish??

the simple answer is malware and need for a clean up and tune up

I suggest you do the following:

1. get an air can, open the case and without touching anything and watching for ESD, dust off your system free.

2. close the case and turn your computer on

3. update your antivirus and run deep scans

4. get all critical updates for your system from windows update

5. download, spybot search and destroy, malwarebytes, superantispyware, and a square free edition, update them and run deep scans.

6. defrag your hard drive

7. to improve perforamance make sure you update or upgrade memory

good luck!

My computer fan speeds up whenever I'm on the


Nothing ... probably ... your fan speeds up when the processor temp goes up ... the more you are doing, the more cooling you need. The processor is calling for more cooling so the fan runs faster.

If this is a concern for you, you may wish to consider adding another fan to your case. In any event, make sure your power supply fan is clean. Use a vacuum or canned air to clean.

Why does my PC fan run continuesly?


Usually, there are two fans on a desktop PC. Some computer have three.

One cools down the power supply and it may be quite noisy after a while because the dust in the fan. The second one is to cool down the processor and usually it doesn't stops, it only changes its speed according the heat.

If there is a third one, it will stop when the temperature is cool enough for the system.

Only on notebooks the processor fan stops completely after a while to save some energy.

CPU FAN SPEED IN HP Compaq d530 Small Form Factor Desktop PC


The fan/heat sink on these models get plugged with dust very easily, use an air compressor or can of air to blow the dust out of the heat sink and fan. In extreme cases the thermal paste gets dried out and needs to be re-applied to properly cool the processor.
