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.

Dell optiplex GX280 PC when power on system no noise with fan after one hour making loud noise . I changed the CPU fan , also same noise, and applied heat sink paste to CPU and heat sink same noise....


There probably is another fan, located inside the power-supply, that is making all the noise.

Borrow a stethoscope from a nurse or doctor, and listen to the noise, to pinpoint "where" on the computer that is the origin of the noise.

Whats with the front fan noise? I purchased a refurbished machine that is really loud! Sent it back for replacement of the unit; instead the fan was replaced(I GUESS) and when returned, its still very...


I have one of these and must say the fan noise is barely noticable, are they using a genuine fan? the original is speed controlled whereas a universal replacement would just run at full speed all the time.

Hope this helps

PC is very loud, thought it was the hard drive purchased another hard drive and it is still loud. Has been this way for quite some time.


The only other item that makes noise without physically doing anything, are the fans. You will have anywhere from 3 to 5 fans.
you can get long piece of paper and twirl it into a long tube and stick it where the fan spins. when the fan stops and the noise stops, you know which fan it is.

Check your cdrom, you might have a cd in there which causes the drive to spin, take it and see if that makes a difference.


thanks

ASUS Lap top computer, 2 months old' makes loud fan type noises at each start up.


Hi

Its normal for a laptop computer or a desktop computer to spin its fans at maximum speed during start up - its part of the power on self test.

If the fan is very loud like on this video the sound is very bad -


that would be a bad fan, constant bad noise. but if your fan only makes noise in start up, its normal.

your warranty should cover the replacement of the fan if its bad.

My computer makes a loud noise in the fan


The drive door issue may indicate a virus infection. As to the fan, you would have it replaced. If not under warranty open the case and track which fan the noise is coming from

I think the fan is making a super loud grinding noise.


I would not recommend this. You could fry your cpu and then you would have no notebook. If you are going to open the notebook make sure there is nothing interfering with the fan. The fan can be replace. Take the fan out and try to replace it, if needed. Do not run the notebook without a fan.

Loud noise


Typical problem in most computers, the fan is experiencing a "burn out." This means there is either something caught in the fan causing it to create noise, or the motor is going bad. there are two fixes for this problem.
1) open you computer's case according to its manual and remove the system cooling fan and give it a thorough cleaning.
2) you may need to replace the cooling fan with its recommended replacement model.

Hope this helps!
