Your fans may be cheap sleeve fans instead of ball bearing fans. This is not an uncommon problem. I would suggest either taking it apart yourself and replacing the fan(s) making the noise or having a Computer Repair center do it unless that would void the guarantee.

Hi My HP proliant dl360 G3 server reports an ok stauts on the cooling section of the system manager but for some reason the next day it reports an insuficient cooling problem and fan failure and reboots...


From my experience, this is an indication that your fans need replacing. If your system manager is working properly, at night if your system is not use much, the manager will put the system in a low state of operation, almost like hybernation. When a request come in to 'wake-up' the system, the fans do not spin fast enough to cool your system properly thus the errors.

Replace the fans, recheck your settings in system manager making sure the manager software is monitoring the cooling and not the os. This should solve your issue.

Good Luck

Hi, we are using HP DL360 with Red Hat 4.0, after installing sometime it created heavy noise during working after 2-3 days and the connectivity goes down, we need to restart the server each time to...

Big noise? Power Supply?

Even t log wouldn't always pick up a hardware failure that kills the machine. Goto HP Download diagnostic spoftware and see if that gives an answer.

Either that or when it does it, pull the lid off, listen to see where the noise is coming from (I.E. Power Supply, drives.. etc) and replace as neccesary.

OK I think my laptop makes noise because of the fan.


Thanks for using FixYa.

It is normal for the laptop's fan to make noise. Sometimes, the noise will not be as bad. The noise actually depends on how hot your laptop is. The hotter the laptop becomes, the louder the fan noise. Your laptop will produce heat depending on the load of the laptop's processor. So if you are multitasking on your laptop, expect the fan to spin faster because it will try to eliminate the extra heat being generated.

I just have a quick tip for you, never use your laptop on top of a bed or any soft surface because the vents under the laptop will not work properly.

I hope this helps. Thanks and good day.

Playstation 3 problems

Hi, I had a similar problem not so long ago, when the PS3 would turn itself off, I think it was an issue with the fan, don't forget these things run quite hot, have you got adequate ventilation to the sides, top and bottom and do you get a lot of fan noise (like a jet aircraft!!).
If memory serves me well, a system update also did the trick, as I think fan issues were fixed in this.
Hope this helps
