Question about HP Compaq Presario SR2011WM PC Desktop
Compaq Presario CPU fan goes on a lot -- does this mean that it is working too hard, possibly I don't have enough RAM?
I don't think adding more ram will quiet the fan. It's got to be one of two things. 1. There is not enough air circulation. If it inside a cabinet try opening the door. Could be dust build up, try taking the side off and using either a vacuum or a can of air, clean out the dust. 2. There is some system proccess using up all the cpu. Try pressing Ctrl + Alt + Del on the keyboard. Along the top press the Proccesses Tab and then look at the bottom where it says CPU usage. If it is above 50% for more than a min. then that's your problem. Try looking at the list and see if you can find the program that is hogging the CPU. Reply back with the program and I'll give you detailed instructions on how to fix.

It's not your ram. What it means is that the system probably has inhaled too much household dust and is having trouble breathing. That is not a joke. The system has fans, and the fans are responsible for moving fresh air and unfortunately dust into the enclosure, and exhausting the heat. If the air is choked off, the heat builds up. If it gets to the point that the fan runs constant, the processor will slow down to compensate and avoid further overheating. That will make the computer slow. If you feel handy, you might get yourself one of those cans of compressed inert gas they sell at the major chains, unplug the computer and take it outdoors, remove the cover, and commence to cloudmaking. If you don't feel like that is for you, you can take it to a servicer, but it's gonna cost you a little more.
