Re: compaq presario sr2019uk noisey fan

Most likely un related. Make sure their are not wires coming near the fan to make the noise.

If its a 'grindy' sound it could just be the ball bearings wearing out. But if you just worked in their, maybe something is rubbing near it.

Loud fan noise on desktop pc

Could be the case fan or the CPU fan. Open the case and determine which fan is noisy by unplugging them one at a time. Replace the bad fan with a new one and you are good.

Hi, my compaq CQ50-115NR used to make great fan, nothing and it gets hotter and hotter...what should I do?

Have the fan replaced.

The 'great fan noise' you heard was the fan's bearings.
The looser the fan bearings became, the more the fan tilted, allowing the center hub of the fan to rub against the bearing base.

A laptop has a poor cooling system. All of the hardware components, are crammed into one tiny box. Air is the only cooling medium to keep these components cool.

The Processor, and the graphics chip are the two components that give off the most heat.
When a Processor becomes too hot, it turns off.
(BIOS turns it off)
This is a Fail Safe feature built-in, to keep the processor from burning up.

I would advise not using the laptop until this has been corrected.
Is the laptop still under warranty?

Fan is noisey.. i was told I need a new one.. can i fix it

You don't say if this is a laptop or a tower version.

If a laptop, leave it to a repair shop as it takes skill to open and get back together in one piece. If a tower, open the case and investigate. Sometimes a wire will bend and hit the fan... if the fan can be removed easily, maybe you can do it yourself. Use the same size AND RATING fan and install in the correct airflow direction.

Compaq Presario fan is not functioning. It is - fan is plugged into the motherboard but the fan will not run - causing my laptop to overheat - I cannot find a fan controlling software that is compatible...

sounds like a burnt up fan so you might just want to take it to your local computer tech have them replace the fan and put some new cpu compound in their and it will never over heat again

Compaq Presario SR1365CL (4) yrs old, fan making annoying noice

Often you can blow the dust out of the fans and it will help. In your case the bearings have most likely dried up on a fan. First blow the dust out of all the fans. To find the offending fan you will have to block the blades with something. Once the fan is found you can either replace it with a fan of the same size or re-oil the bearings. To re-oil, carefully peal away the label on the fan. There might be a plastic plug over the bearing, carefully remove it. Drop a few drops of 4-in-1 oil or sewing machine oil into the bearing. Stick the label back on and put the fan back into the system. It should be much quieter now.

Any XP installation disk will format your hard drive. All you have to do is boot the XP installation disk and follow the prompts. IF YOU DON'T HAVE ONE YOU CAN'T GO BACK! unfortunately you can't recover on OS that you've overwritten... And if you could you wouldn't want to. You need an install disk, which Compaq should provide for you.
