Only do this if you feel competent in doing so.

Pulling apart laptops is not for the faint of heart.

If you really must do it there are some
good guides here
.

An alternative is to get a can of compressed air used to clean computers. Put the nozzle on and spray it in every hole you can see without putting the nozzle itself inside the laptop.

Do this outside with glasses on.


You may also want to remove the hard drive and ROM drive.

Take a
peek here for more ideas of what is involved.

There are a few are tips for various things in there.

DON'T touch the CPU cooler unless you know what you are doing and have some thermal grease for CPUs to hand.

To make newer laptops last longer between cleaning a good 3 fan cooling pad is suggested.
never use a laptop on soft surfaces as the ventilation can act as a mini vacuum cleaner and encourage dirt build up.
Soft surfaces also block the vents causing fans to run more and burn out sooner.

Hope this gives you the information you need

How to reduce fan noise


The noise is either dirt on the fan blades or noisy bearings. Try cleaning first. If that doesn't work, replace it.

How to fix noisy fan in chef fan forced oven


Possible fault in the bearing bushes , in the first place you can spray a WD40 or even some light oil into the fan's rotor ends where the bearings are located. If the sound reduces clean and wipe off excess oil from the shaft side. Also make sure that the fan leaf is not making the noise due to any dirt accumulation or obstruction.

I have Acer Veriton 5800 desktop and often the noise get louder and faster and then it quieten down. Do you think it a fan?


Most desktops have fans fitted, especially in the power supply.
The bearings and not that good and become noisy when older. They are replaceable but a replacement power supply is far less effort.
Show the fans a plastic pipe from a vacyym cleaner from time to time, that will make the fans more efficient and reduce the wear and noise.
The hard drive can get noisy also, (if it is I would before it is too late), recommend replacing it.
Hope that helps.

Fan noisy


Fan is placed in notebook so as to expel the heat produced in the laptop. Try using your laptop in a cool sorrounding, so that the fan speed will be reduced. Try to clean the laptop. If your not sure how to open the laptop and clean, give to a near by technician and get it cleaned. Thank You.

Sony Vaio laptop fan is very loud and continously running


My pcg-k33 was very noisy (fan) so I vacuumed the fan opening with a powerful shop vac. This helped alot. I think that the CPU temperature triggers the fan so keeping the cooling system clean is important. As well, there are openings on the bottom for air so it is important to keep the unit on a surface that doesn't impede airflow (on your lap is a bad idea)

Noise


That noise is due to your Power-Supply-Unit, Hard-Drive, Optical Drives, other spinning devices, and ventilation fans. You can reduce some of it but not all of it.

For example, your hard-drive could be rather old and producing a lot of noise when it spins up, reads, or writes data. You could replace it with a newer hard-drive which barely makes any noise. The same with your Power Supply Unit (PSU). It could be old and rather noisy. You could buy yourself a newer one such as the ones made by PC Power & Cooling which gets you a quieter product. However that's about it as you DO NOT want to reduce the amount of fans in your system.

Sorry if this was not the solution you were after. However most noise from a computer stems from ventilation fans which can be replaced but should not be removed.

If this is a new problem, replace the fan. If it has always been noisy , I guess you will have to live with it.
