Annoying noise from inside my Vaio

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??? I have a noise that is coming from inside my Vaio. It sounds like the cooling fan but I am not for sure. It is loud enough to be annoying for me and I don't know what to do to make it stop!

    No I've not cleaned the air ports on my laptop, I've only had it for 5 months. How do I clean the air ports? Will this help with the annoying noise?

    have you cleaned the air ports on the laptop lately? If dirt builds up on the heatsinc, the fan can't keep the CPU cool and the computer will run the fan constantly.

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!

Cooler part ven-tlateur


Well, there is a cooling fan inside... is that what you mean? They do go out eventually, but usually they make an annoying noise first. First, try a vacuum or "duster" compressed air can to blow out any dust that could be blocking the fan.
Fans are pretty cheap, but getting into the laptop to replace the fan is a long job.
You need a lot more information here, because "Sony Vaio" is just a family. You need precise model number and possibly the serial number as well, before you can get the part.

Noicy sound from fan - vgn-z440


Chances are the cooling fan needs to be replaced, dirt buildup can also be a factor in noise. I recommend that the computer be dismanled by a pro and the condition of the cooling fan be checked, plus real good cleaning.

If there is bubbles occurring even inside the top part of the radiator (where you have the coolant put in), you may have a leak on your head gasket. You may be loosing coolant through the engine.

Sony Vaio K33; the fan seems to run all of the time, hot and nois


i had the same problem with my vaio.

when disassembling the notebook: after you remove the metal cover under the keyboard, you'll see three areas covered with black thermal tape. peel back the thermal tape and you should see tightly packed dust buildups in those areas. use a q-tip and vacuum if you can or air duster. be sure to clean the fans as well as the heatsink assembly.

once that is done, your noise level should be reduced by about 60-70%.

if you're still running hot, consider cleaning the old thermal grease off your processor and reapplying a new layer.

My Sony Vaio laptop makes a lot of noise mostly it seems from the fan. This is intermittent but seems to happen when I have had the laptop on for a long time. What might be causing this and is this serious...


Your processor is probably getting too hot. When it gets hot, the fan speed will increase. You will heed to have the processor heat sink checked, cleaned, and new thermal paste applied to it. You will also need to clean your cooling fans if they are dirty.

The fan's bearings are probably going bad, or there may be some object that was sucked in to cause the noise.

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.
