Loud buzzing noise......possibly the fan?

Ive had my compaq presario 2500 laptop for almost 5 years- recently, it has been shutting down on its own and just yesterday it has been making this nopise, like a bug buzzing by the fan, or as other people have stated like a vacuum noise- i have noticed lately that my laptop gets hot fast- and on a side note, its been runing slow lately, does that mean i need to purchase more memory? thanks

Is the battery ok? have it tested, sounds like a weak battery that is failing, the battery lasts about 2 years in most laptops.

Laptop does not start


Hi,
The loud buzzing was most likely your CPU (processor) fan dying of bust bearings. The CPU is supposed to shut down your pc before it burns out but some intel processors no longer have this feature.
The first step is to find your laptop on the HP support website, and then look for the service manual. You'll need a small philips (crosshead) or posidrive screwdriver and a guitar pick (or similar)
You need to take out the fan, order a new one from ebay and replace. If that doesn't fix it, you need to do the same with the CPU.

I have a compaq laptop presario X13 04657 and it is overheating. The fan makes a really loud noise before it shuts down. The computer gets really hot. Any suggestions?


1) is the fan still working?
2) Turn the computer off, remove the bottom cover and clean up the inside by blowing compressed air into it. Be sure to remove all the dust and lint you see. Check the fan moves easily.
3) replace the bootom cover and try again
4) DO NOT use your laptop on top of a soft surface. That means no pillows and no blankets or any other type of fabric under your laptop. Do not use it on top of your bed either. Only on top of HARD surfaces.
5) Avoid playing any intense 3D GAMES. Most laptops are NOT designed for game playing

I just recently bought an Acer Aspire One and the fan began buzzing loudly and a few weeks later the screen completely shut off. Now when I start up my laptop I cant see anything and the fan buzzes. What...


It is possible that the CPU has overheated. You  should replace the buzzing fan and reseat the CPU. If that doesn't work my guess is that the CPU will have to be replaced.

Unassemble the fan and see if there is a lot of dirt and dust in there. If the fan is NOT working you need to fix that issue before you do anything else. Does the computer randomly shut down ?

It is quite possible that you need to replace the cooling fan. You can get used parts for this machine on Ebay pretty cheap now. I have seen the fan assy go for about $8-20.00. They are a bit of a job to replace. Just take your time.
