Loud fan noise on desktop pc


Could be the case fan or the CPU fan. Open the case and determine which fan is noisy by unplugging them one at a time. Replace the bad fan with a new one and you are good.

CPU FAN STUCK ON FULL SPEED.


I think if the CPU run always on full speed and the noise is evident and bothers you ..it means that it has something that force the CPU to run on a higher temperature than normal one ..
This can be the environment or a heat source you use in the room ..or just dust covering the heat dispenser and making necessary for the fan to run faster to compensate .
running the system for long hours and having a high temperature in the room is probably the cause..To avoid damage ..try to clean teh heat dispenser (the aluminum part under the fan )..or at least to remove teh system cover and leave it cool better ..you can also install a second fan and this way assure a better cooling for the CPU ..

Its overheating and shutting down after maybe 15-20 minutes


Almost certainly a clogged cooling fan , vents or build up of dust on the cooling fins. You will need to gain access to the CPU fan and remove the heatsink assembly, blow all dust out of the cooler matrix, clean the fan blades and the cooling vents. Clean off any thermal paste on the cpu and regrease with new paste, refit and reasemble.

You CAN cut corners by cleaning it "in situ" but a thorough cleaning is advised.

Eventually if not cleaned, teh graphics chip will fail with overheating

My compaq laptop shut off by itself,IM NOTICING the cooling fan is not working


if the cooling fan is not working then the laptop will shut off due to heat issues. Than could just be clogged stopping it from spinning. I have seen the cooling fans go bad. The fan will def need to be repaired or replaced if not working. You can probably find one for it and replace it yourself if you have any technical experience

In my hp 61020 mt destop am facing the fan speed and noise is too high....any solution to this....


It may be just that the fan needs to be replaced.

More likely is that the computer cpu is overheating and the motherboard is ramping up the cpu fan speed to try to cool it, hence the high fan speed and consequent noise. This usually happens when the heat sink is clogged with a lot of dust. It could just be that the fan heat sink came loose.

It may be that it's just a noisy fan, in which case replace it with one that doesn't make as much noise.

I HAVE A COMPAQ PRESARIO SR1339UK, THE PLASTC


you can install an other cpu cooling.
You have to find out which socket the cpu got and the size .
it has to fits to your pc case.
Look for some videos on youtube .There are some good guidlines
for cooler installin.
A cpu cooler is not very expensive but most a time a lot better than the standart cooler.

Compaq presario cpu cooling fan will not start spinning unless "helped" with tip of pen to spin over.If I dont start it manually,I get No cpu fan message,and shut down.I just replaced fan,as old had broken...


If the CPU fan speed is too slow or not working at all, the computer will shut itself off automatically to prevent damage to CPU from overheating. You may end up having to throw more money at the problem and get a new fan. I went to Compaq's web site, looked up your particualr computer, found out what type of fan you needed, and I did some research. I recommend getting the fan in the following link. It's very cheap, and has good reviews. The other fans on the site all have bad reviews. Hope this helps.

C300 Switches off


The Compaq C300 laptop most likely is overheating and shutting down (ie thermal overload) and will not bootup again until it has cooled down. If this is not fixed eventually the CPU will fail.
The overheating is caused by a faulty fan and/or dust clogging the heatsink and fan assembly.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely (replace the fan if it is faulty) and use a stiff brusk to loosen the dust from the fan and heatsink and vacuum the dust from the fan and heatsink.
If you remove the fan assembly from the CPU then apply fresh thermal paste to the heatsink pad before placing it over the CPU.
The laptop should be placed on a flat surface so the vents are not obstructed. You can also place the laptop on a fan assisted base to provide additional cooling.
