The noise is either dirt on the fan blades or noisy bearings. Try cleaning first. If that doesn't work, replace it.

Whenever I play video or work on my computer for an extended period of time there is a loud and very obnoxious noise that is intermittent. I believe it might be the fan


It is most likely the fan. When doing things like watching flash video (e.g. YouTube or Hulu), it uses a lot of CPU power, thus your fan needs to spin in order to keep your computer from overheating.

I have a Dell inspiron 1525...I have found that now, after a year and half the fan has become loud and noise. So noise, I wake up in the middle of the night, hearing my computer cooling b/c the fan is so...


you need to buy a new fan, your fan is about to give up the ghost. if you let the fan die while the pc is running, it might burn out the cpu.

fans are very cheap, like a few dollars, and do not always last forever.

Loud fan


Hello

I have a gforce 9600gt oc addition and that fan is loud beyound your wildest expectation, but although there is lots of utillities you can install to reduce fan speed thus reducing the noise, but can cause permanent harm to your system(it will most probably overheat). You can try blowing all the dust of the fan using compressed air to reduce the rolling resistance of the fan. You can find a fan speed utillity with the name of LG X110 fan utility from google, developed by msi, but i wount recomend it. Hope this can help you, please rate this

Best regards

My cpu fan's speed is very high. i will produce too much noice. can i reduce my fan's speed?? if i reduced that then what happened?? is there any problem????


On my computer when I first power up the display screen gives me the main board details and an option to change settings on it by pressing an F Key. Does your computer do the same? If it does you should press the key and it will give you the options to control and alter things like fan speeds. Don't forget to check if dust or something else is causing the noise.

Cpu


The noise is coming from fan friction and vibration. Running compressed air through fan components can help reduce noise pollution from dust buildup. Brush-less CPU/GPU fans are significantly quieter than the brush-motor powered fans that come with some factory electronics. Furthermore, some computer cases are designed with noise reduction in mind; Antec designed cases are know for being one of the quietest because they use patented bushings to secure the computer hardware. Moreover, make sure internal wiring is free and clear of all fan blades.

Can i reduce fan noise on acer aspire 1670


Usually fans make more noise when they're dirty.

Have you tried cleaning the fan with some compressed air?

Cpu fan noise problem


It appears that the 1GB RAM that you installed is generating more heat due to the density of the chips they require more power. This is what is causing the fan to work harder. To verify this you can re-install the original memory and see if the fan noise reduces due to lower heat.

Laptop Noise


If this is a new problem, replace the fan. If it has always been noisy , I guess you will have to live with it.

Cpu fan noise problem


You should check and make sure the inside of your computer isn't dusty. Dust will wreak havok on fans and shorten their life. Plus it likes to build up between the fan and heatsink which will overheat your processor. Take the fan off and spin it with your fingers. I like to open the little sticker on the bottom and put some 3 in 1 oil to lubricate it. A smooth spinning fan is a happy computer. It also reduces noise that a dirty fan makes. Hope this helps you.
