N16 manual makes a whiring noise when slowing down from 60kph in 4th, stops when put into nuetral

sounds like a bearing is on the way out in the gearbox, nothing really to worry about yet, if it is still going into gear, and not making a grinding noise.

mine makes a whirring noise when accelerating through 1-3rd gears.

It's when there is grinding and growling in the gear box that you need to worry.

My **** hp dv8000 makes a grinding buzzing noise and it's annoying as hell.

A laptop has become a very convenient and mobile way to stay connected with work, to communicate with peers, to research, to take notes and to do just about anything related to computing. However, when the convenient laptop gets noisy, it is an irritation to everyone. The noise maker in a laptop is almost always the fan, and it can be fixed by cleaning or replacing.

1.Unplug the laptop and remove the battery. Of course, you don't want to do this until you have shut down any programs that were open and shut down your computer normally. Be on the lookout for static electricity--don't touch other electrical devices while you are doing this and touch something metallic to discharge any static from your body before toughing the inside of the laptop.

2.Remove the screws that cover the back of the computer. This will differ from laptop to laptop, depending on your make and model. Set the screws aside and lift the cover off. You should be able to see the small square fan that cools your laptop. If you have had your computer running for a while, there may still be some rather hot components, so be careful.

3.Inspect the fan for a buildup of dust. If you can see obvious debris in the way, use a small vacuum hose to **** the dirt out of the area. Be very careful not to get too rough, as the inside of the laptop is fragile.

4.Remove the fan if there is no obvious buildup. This usually means unscrewing it and undoing the wiring. Write down the information on the fan such as the part number and serial number to order a new one. You may find one in your local computer parts store.

5.Install the new fan in the reverse order of how your removed the old fan. Screw everything back together and put the back cover on. Replace the battery pack and plug the laptop in. The new fan should run smoothly and quietly.

I hope it helps.

My aspire 5551 is new, but now once in a while, it makes a rumbling noise, like as grinding motor, should i worry, is it serious?

Well the ONLY things that could possibly make a grinding noise are the cooling fan (or fans) or a hard drive. Those are the only moving parts inside a laptop. If it does it while trying to access data it's probably the hard drive, which would be serious. Back up data ASAP and get a new drive. Shut it down and don't use it until you back up your data. The more probable option is one of the cooling fans/cooler. Blow it out with compressed air through the vent slots located on the bottom or the sides of the laptop. If this persists you would need to order in another fan. Call Acer about it if you think this is the issue. You would need to open the laptop up and install it yourself or get someone else to but it's an easy fix. Good luck!

That is unless the noise is coming through the speakers, which would be another problem...

Fan noise

This is just a consequence of normal wear & tear, most Laptops, & Desktop's Fan's actually sound louder over time as the bearing in the fan wears, this causes more noise, it is not too much to worry about. I guess you could replace your fan, but it would mean disassembly of the unit. Get a program called Speedfan, with this you can control your fan, this may help. link below.

Grinding fan noise HP dv6 1130TX

First, if you just purchased the unit, you should have the problem fixed by HP under warranty.
HP offers a extended 1 year from the date of purchase. Thats 2 years on startup problems.
You are correct on the noise comming from the fan.
This will not go away and may get worse.
If the fan slows down or stops when needed, the CPU will go for a walk.
Email HP customer care and log your problem.
Make sure you have reg. your unit first.

Loud grinding noice before starting to print

Mine makes a grinding noise when scanning or making copies. As long as everything is working, I just tolerate the noise in which the rest of the staff find amusing at first and then ignore it as I do.
