Get yourself a sevice manual(if you cant find one can send u one)
take the cover off the fan ,take out the fan.clean it and check the rotor (dust collects there and develops into cotton like material)
replace components and reassemble pc.
if this doesnt solve the prob the seatings for motor have become worn and the noise is from vibration.you could try removing the motor and put some graffite in seating this acts like lubrication an minimises noise(dont use motor oil it attracts dust)
for the overheating...go into bios and select fan always on.(in advanced)

I've got an Acer Travelmate 292LMI. My problem is: the notebook starts (leds on) for only a few seconds (I can see the acer display that preceeds the boot) but immediately it is dead. Only the AC leds...


It could be an overheating CPU problem.
When the CPU in the computer or laptopoverheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot upagain until it has cooled down. If this is the problem is not fixed then theCPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes this problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

This could be a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard.

I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 and the fan has started making noises


Its possible but it would require taking out all the screws from the bottom of the latop, taking out the keyboard and the screws from the top cover. Then disconnecting the ribbon for the mouse pad and any other plugs coming from the top cover. After you take off the top cover you'll expose where the fan is at and at that point you can clean it off. If it still makes weird sounds then the fan would need to be replaced.

Sounds like a bad motherboard if you no video and weird sounds coming from the speakers since the speakers hook up to the motherboard. I would suggest though to see if you can replace the CPU and disconnect the speakers to make sure they aren't shorting out the motherboard and then try turning it on with the new CPU installed. If you still have no video then the motherboard is definitely bad.
