Depending on the size of the fan you can probably remove it and take it to your local computer store and have them get you a better one of the same size.

My tv randomly freezes and and shuts off and them comes right back on and sometimes it squeals when doing that,i was told it was a power supply board,but replaced it and still the same,could the probelm be...

Loud screechy sounds, random turn-off and especially random restart are usually associated with the main board, not the power supply and not the T-CON and not the inverters (when separate).

Of course exceptions are always possible, but the rule is still that the above symptoms point to a bad main board.

Samsung has lots of main boards that develop a symptom of power cycling at startup, freezing image with loud screeching sound and eventually totally dead (although totally dead is also exhibited by main boards from every single manufacturer I know, so no much help there).

Anyway, this is 99.99% chance bad main board, especially considering it is known to develop a problem.

You can find repairs for the main problems of the Sanyo DP42849 and other series here:

Which brings me to the point that it is important to know which chassis version is your model. Some are quite different from others.

Good luck!

Acre z5700 turns off

A really loud fan can be one of two things - neither is very good to have for very long. Most newer motherboards support multi-speed fan operation based on CPU temperature. This keeps fan noise at a minimum because the fan only has to run fast (and loud) if the CPU exceeds a specific threshold temperature. The loud noise could also be from a fan that is starting to fail and is binding, thus running slower than normal. Either of these conditions is indicative of a problem that kills PCs - heat. Open the case and carefully examine the heat sink fins and the fan on the CPU. If they are caked with dust (especially the fins), then the CPU will likely overheat and shut down. Get some canned air designed for cleaning electronic components and blow the dust from the fins and the fan. Restart your system a see if the fan runs slower and quieter now, Machines that are in dusty environments, around smokers, or placed on the floor are especially prone to dirt buildup. Periodic cleaning with the canned air is the way to keep your PC happy and healthy.

Making random loud bursts.

Connection wires? If your connection wires aren't that great or just won't plug in correctly or are not connected correctly the sound jumps in and out with random loud burst or sometimes a really annoying scratching sound.

make sure nothing is obstructing the plugs (going in), re wrap your wires(if you have the type of speaker with the loose wires you wrap yours) or upgrade your connection wires/plugs.

This may help? :)

My computer runs constantly its loud and annoying

I assume you mean the cooling fan on the CPU, this model uses a smart fan technology, it is meant to spin up faster to provide cooling. If is is doing tis constantly, it means the CPU is not getting adequate cooling (overheating), to check this, remove the side panel, clean all the dust and debris build up from the cooling fan and see if that helps

1999.5 Jetta 2.0 GLS manual trans. was having a random loud buzzing/clicking noise coming from the instrument panel. The buzz/click has now turned into a loud, constant buzz.

Hi, this is a very common problem and its not only your make peugeot's have the exact same problem, its a tiny little fan that just sits behind the dash and all it does is gently circulate the air round the inside of the dash to keep everything cool and stop and heat building uo

i know its very very annoying but the only option is to take the whole dash out just to get to a fan thats about the size of a milk bottle cap and its just not worth doing, i know its annoying but you will be even more annoyed when you cant put your dash back together,

my mom has got a peugeot with the exact same noise it sounds like their is a fly trapped behind the dash well thats what my mom though anyway she kept banging the dash and spraying fly spray everywhere then when i got in the car she asked me if i could hear the fly and asked how long they live for cuz its been their for ages it was only when i told her it was a little fan she realised that maybe its not a trapped fly.

its up to you rip the dash out and bust the fan but its a big job just to stop a tiny little fan i know its very annoying but their is no easy fix sorry.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Computer frequently shuts down unexpectedly/ fans very noisy

You might have a cooling problem due to a fan malfunction. It is not clear whether it's the power supply fan or the CPU fan; in the latter case you might also have a thermal coupling problem. The symptoms you describe certainly seem to point to such.

My advice would be to replace the fan (or the whole power supply; you might also want to purchase a "Silent Power" unit for quieter computing). If it's the CPU fan and you are comfortable with, or know anyone comfortable with a bit of PC servicing, you might want to also unmount the heat sink from the CPU and replace the thermal paste between CPU and heatsink. Clean the heat dissipator (the black metal grille over the heatsink) with hot water and a bit of soap and dry thoroughly, or wipe it energically with a dust brush, before mounting the new fan on it.

Fan really loud, probably full of dust. how to take the case off?

You will need to open the case by removing the screws or thumbscrews on the back, should be anywhere from 1 to 4. Make sure you disconnect the power and discharge any static charge by pressing the power button after plug is disconnected. Once the screws are removed slide the case side panel off, or open like a **** depending on case design. Once opened you should be able to see the heatsink/fan assembly sitting on top of the cpu. You should not need to disassemble it to clean it. Just spray it out thoroughly with a can of compressed air. Once clean put the case back together and reconnect power. If the noise still persists then it could be that a bearing has burned out on the fan and it will need replaced. You can buy a fan fairly cheap to replace. Hope this helps you out.

Fan is loud

well if its not attached to the motherboard in any place, for example the heat sync, or the cpu, then you can remove the fan, any other place, you shouldnt replace it because the mother board sets the fan at a certain rpm, and which would sound loud with any fan. I know this because i replaced the fan on my sony computer, and on a generic motherboard, and it was quiet, but when i put it on my sony computer, it was loud, so if you want to replace your fan, i suggest liquid cooling, it is completely quiet, and keeps your cpu much cooler than a fan. Best of luck.

My DC5000 SFF turns on okay then switches off randomly Help!!

Which fan are you referring to? As far as I know the fan in the power supply runs at the same speed at all times. So if that is the fan you are hearing it may indicate that the power supply is failing. The power supply may be over heating and shutting down. I would try a different power supply if you can get your hands on one.

Loud Fan

Hi, I am afraid that your problem is common to this laptop brand/model. A reason is that it uses AMD Turion64 with reported nominal operating temp at ~50.0?c. At ~55.0? the CPU fan will kick in until the temperature stabilizes which unfortunately takes a long time due to the nature of the enclosed spaces in a laptop. Also lubrication will help improve the fan but will not solve the noise nor the turning on quickly, other than it's a complicated and tedious job opening the unit. Other users of the same model reports positive results by lowering the supply voltage of your process. The process is called "undervolting" and best described in Mr. Dan Zhang's guide at and tried at Hope that this give you an idea and pls post back how things turn up or if you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
