Very loud fan!! Sounds like jet engine and make the computer shutoff.

I have had my pavilian ZV5000 for about 3 years and the fan runs constantly, never shuts off and most times is louder than the TV. The fan goes nuts even when the computer is just powered on and I am not doing anything with it. I called HP and they want $250 just to look at it. Anyone else run into this? Thanks

    i have the same problem, have had the same laptop for about 3 years and the fan is nuts. Recently it has begun overheating pretty often anyway, in which case it shuts off/dies without notice.

You need to take out the heatsink to cleanup the clogged area. The heatsink is one piece and it is held by 4 screws. Once you removed the dirt, you could tell the fan is a lot quiter.

Dont worry Rob5150, this is normal in hp laptops, this should not be bothering u any more. But there are modes in which u can make the fan run either always ON or when required.

Thankyou

Hi my HP Pavillion ZV5000 fan runs loudly after a period of time and then shuts off. Probably due to over heating.i also already have cleaned the fans. Is there any solutions?


When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU 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.

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

Dell XPS 210 very noisy what can I do to quiet it


Hi, The noise from any computer is due to the fan. It is really the only thing that makes noise on a computer - unless you havce a bad drive. If you can hear a drive outside of the case, then it's about to fail. You can buy a quieter fan for your laptop. That will take a bit of investigation on your part, as far as getting the dimensions and wattage of the fan from your manufacturer's web site or the instruction manual that came with your computer. You would do best to go to a reliable and competent computer shop and have a quieter fan installed, rather than doing it yourself if possible. This mod is very simple, and can make your computer run better, provided you get a better fan that can cool your machine better.

Compaq Presario 3000 incredibly slow firing up, opening up anything. Loud fan all the time too


This advice relates to the Compaq Presario 3000 Notebook series but may also apply to other notebook computers as well.

The heat sink and fan assembly is probably clogged with dust and airborne particles. The clogged cooling parts can lead to heat problems with the CPU. When the system (CPU) gets to hot, the fan has to kick into high gear to try to cool things down. Once you remove dust and debre from the heat sink fins and fan, you will immediately experience better cooling and less fan usage. Your system may also be set for dynamic switching of CPU speed. If you CPU gets too hot, the system will reduce clock speed and ramp up fan and everything will slow way down. Use a good system monitoring software such as Notebook Hardware Control to monitor your CPU temperature, HDD temp and so forth. When the system starts getting too hot, first look at clogged heat sink fins as possible culprit. If you're good at electronics you may be able to service the unit yourself. Get a copy of the system's Maintenance and Service Manual or have a professional do the job for you as you will have to partially disassemble the computer to clean out the heat sink. Depending on the system, the job can take as little as 15-20 minutes once you become proficient at it.

Noise from computer


It could very well be the noisy fan. Try tapping the computer lightly to see if the noise stops or changes to confirm if it indeed is the fan. Or it could be a noisy HDD.  There is nothing you can do about a noisy HDD but about a noisy fan you can stop worrying as it will cause no probs as long as it is working, noisily or otherwise. You will have to tolerate it. Sometimes it is the detatchable sides of the computer (you wrote 'computer' in your question). See if the noise stops or lessens when you touch the sides a little harder.

Don't know where problem exists in Toshiba A30.


These laptops had a lot of serious problems. Some of them were incredibly sensitive to static, and others did overheat, rendering the motherboard or CPU useless. I think there was even some kind of legal action against Toshiba on these models at one point, but I could be wrong.

You may not like this advice, but your $90 is probably better spent going towards a slightly used, refurbished or even new laptop that will outperform this computer anyway. You may only have to spend a couple of hundred dollars.

It sounds like you might know your way around the innards, so your hard drive can be removed and put in a USB hard drive enclosure so you can get to your old data from a new computer. These enclosures are very cheap.

I would not suggest continuing to try to resurrect this computer, as it will give you nothing but headaches going forward and will most likely never be reliable. You can remove your hard drive and sell the rest on eBay (or elsewhere) for parts.

Sorry if that's not great news, but that's my professional opinion of what you should do at this point.

Display fault


Sounds like a bad screen. If you hook up your computer to an external monitor and it's okay there, then that should confirm it.
