This happens when it is getting too hot inside your computer. Take a can of compressed air and blow out the dust inside the computer, around the heatsink, fans, and any vents you see. Follow the instructions on the can for maximum efficiency. This will allow your computer to run cooler and the fan won't have to run on high speed quite as often, if at all.

Noise in front of vehicle

check if you have a viscous fan hub. If you have it will be that the hub has started working while you were stationary to raise up the fan speed to assist in cooling and when you rev up to take off the increase rpm increases the fan noise and when the air is passing through the radiator the hub cuts out and the fan noise goes.

I need to know how to set hight and low on the carborator

Make sure choke is fully open, then run engine at full speed adjust high jet with a screwdriver - what you do is turn jet one way until revs drop of and then the other way until revs drop off - what you want is the middle point between this happening. Do the same for low jet except run engine at idel speed.

Howdy: Sounds like the carb is jeted to much. Slow revs mean too much gas is coming in thru the needle and main. Pull the jets and go down around 3 to 4 sizes. If the revs perk up your on the right track.
Go the the web and get "carb jetting procedure" for your carb. Plenty of help there.

if your model has a amel mark 2 the stand main jet is #200 needle jet #106 pilot jet #20 starter jet #35 the main jet doesn't come into it at take off unless you are pulling 5000 revs or more. i would try raising the needles and checking the pilot jet also try taking of with choke on this will let you know if it is starving for fuel. try the choke one first before pulling the carbs down.

Hp compaq dc5000sff cpu fan sounds like a jet taking off

Not sure how long you have had the Desktop. However it will be one of two things. If it used to run quitely and now is making lots of noise then immediately take it to be replaced. Fans on power supplies cannot be fixed. If it should stop completely then the heat that builds up in your desktop could damage your components. Second, if it is fairly new and has always sounded that way then you are ok. Yes, there are some fans that are very loud, again you can have it replaced. They sell "quite fans" now that make no noise at all. But first and foremost if you start having problems like unusual reboots, lock ups, etc then your computer is getting overheated and the power supply which houses the fan needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.
