Question about Computers & Internet
The last two weeks my HP Touchsmart 320-1050 desktop is getting very loud. The fan sounds like it is an engine on a plane revving up for take-off. It is only two years old. How can I take the back off to see if there is dust on the fan or if I need to take it in to have the fan replaced. We live in a rural area that is very dusty and dirt roads. Thanks, Shirley
This is from HP. I live on a dusty road also and have to vacuum my computers monthly. Hope this helpshttp://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c03702528&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=5157099&tmp_track_link=ot_search

Your fan speeds up and slows down in response to temperature inside the computer. More so the CPU.
I would suggest getting a can of compressed air made for computers
take it outside, take of the side and blow all the gunk out of there, Really go to town around the fan (you might want to wear eye protection)
While you are in there just check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose
If it is it will have to be re-seated.
If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem they have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on ($2-5)
DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.
You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.
DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU
Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)
Be careful about how much you put on
Here are some basic instructions
Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.
If everything went to plan you should now be back in business
Hope this gives you the information you need

You are out of luck my friend Hp must be the worst people on earth to buy a pc from i will never get a product from them again
it would seem that the fan you need is a sunon and they only made this fan for HP so you can only buy it from an HP registered seller and thier is only one that does this fan however you can not just buy the fan you must buy the whole cooling system and in the UK it will cost you £280 before VAT and shipping
phone this number 01925251697
