Your fan speeds up and slows down in response to temperature inside the computer. More so the CPU.

I would suggest getting a can of compressed air made for computers

take it outside, take of the side and blow all the gunk out of there, Really go to town around the fan (you might want to wear eye protection)
While you are in there just check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose

If it is it will have to be re-seated.

If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem they have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on ($2-5)

DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.

You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.

DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU

Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)

Be careful about how much you put on

Here are
some basic instructions


Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.

If everything went to plan you should now be back in business

How fix Loud g4 Hard Drives


Not sure what you mean by loud Hard Drives. Hard drives are so quiet you can barely hear them. If they are loud the only cure is replacement. However, I have never heard a hard drive that I would consider 'loud' in all my years in computing./ As you show a mirror fronted mac in your question - I think you may mean loud 'Fans'. This mac was notorious for its loud fans. They can be replaced, but I seem to remember a firmware fix from Apple to slow them down - or it may have been a 3rd party utility.

Loud cooling fan can it be fixed or replaced?


If the fan is unacceptably loud, first try to blow out the dirt with compressed air.
The fan cannot be fixed, as it might have a bad bushing or bearings. The fans are easy to replace. Easy is a relative term, of course--in a laptop/notebook computer, the challenge is taking it apart to get to the fan.

My Acer Aspire One AOA150 's fan is very loud and warm


I'd suggest that you carefully pull the base of your Acer apart - taking out the screw, and keeping track of them. See if your fan is dirty - I have an Acer as well, and if it's dirty, it get loud, and HOT!

A quick cleaning does wonders!

THere is a fan in the back of the television that is very loud and wasn't like that when we first purchased it about 3 years ago. What do you think is making the fan sound so loud?


it could be a ventilation fan that might be ready to give out, but if it is a very loud and vibrating noise it could be a coming from inside the focus block or light engine.

Loud noise


Typical problem in most computers, the fan is experiencing a "burn out." This means there is either something caught in the fan causing it to create noise, or the motor is going bad. there are two fixes for this problem.
1) open you computer's case according to its manual and remove the system cooling fan and give it a thorough cleaning.
2) you may need to replace the cooling fan with its recommended replacement model.

Hope this helps!
