My Emachine T5212 has a loud fan constantly running

I cleaned the inside, the fans, heat sink, everything...it was running full RPM until the computer would just shut down, now it's not shutting off after I cleaned it, but still super loud. any ideas?? Thanks
also, I downloaded speedfan, but dont know how accurate it is.

RPM fan 1 = 4310
RPM fan 2 = 2897
RPM fan 3 = 0
RPM fan 4 = 0

CPU, AMBIENT, AND HD0 all read about 37 degrees C
but the REMOTE reads 79

    Basically the same problem except I haven't tried to clean anything. The problem has not gotten to the point where the computer is shutting down yet but I don't want it getting to that point.

    you will need to replace this fan, you can take the fan out and take to a computer part store and see what they have to replace it. I would not buy anything with less rpms. There are several of online computer part stores if you know what your looking for.

My cooling fan on my HP Pavilion 23 touch screen desktop has the cooling fan running constantly now? Why would this happen all of a sudden?


It's possible that either the chip it's cooling is running hot. The heat sink inside may be covered with dust preventing the chip from being cooled. It also might be dust on the fins of the fan itself causing the extra noise.

You should have it checked out and cleaned to prevent possible damage and fan failure.

Emachines t5212 overheat message then shuts down


Three causes of ovheating:
1) Dust. Dust inside the computer, Dust around the vents, fans, cpu and heat sink. Take a can of compressed air and clean the dust out of the computer.

2) A Fan not working. Make sure the fan inside the Power Supply where you plug the power cord in works. Also there is a fan that sits on top of the CPU and Heat Sink. Make sure it works. Normally the system will give you an error message if the fan is not working.

3) Thermal Paste - The Thermal Paste around the cpu and heat sink has dried up or is too thin to keep the unit cool. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink.

Dell 370 fan runs loud and won't start


If the fan is failing the most times the computer will not start because it will overheat. There are two fans inside the system, one inside the Power Supply and one that sits on the motherboard.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the case, Remove the cover and with a can of compressed air blow out the dust inside the computer. Clean the dust away from the Fans, Vents, CPU and Heat Sink are that sits under the Fan on the motherboard.

Emachine w3609 cpu overheating


Easy Fix.. Computers over heat because either a fan is not working, Dust has clogged the vents around the fans, CPU and Heat Sink or the Thermal Paste around the CPU and Heat Sink has become hard or too thin to keep it cool.

Remove the cover from the computer and set it aside then turn the computer on. When you hit the power button to turn on the computer make sure you hear and see the constant blowing of the fans. There will be a fan that is on the Power Supply where the power cord plugs in and a fan on top of the CPU and Heat Sink. If not, replace it. If the fans are ok get a can of compressed air from a local computer store and blow out the dust from the fans, power supply and all throughout the computer. In order to apply Thermal Paste on the CPU and Heat Sink you will have to remove the fan that sits on top of it and is normally secured by screws or some type of latching device. Once the fan is removed you can remove the heat sink and it too will be secured by screws or a latch catching device. Clean the old paste off the heat sink and off of the area it sits on. Apply a fresh coat of Thermal Paste to both and reassemble. Thermal Paste is available at local computer stores for under $20

My cooloing fans are running full speed all the time which is very loud and annoying. how can i fix this?


Firs thing you need to do is to find our why they are running full speed. My guess is that your computer is dirty inside and it is overheating, thus causing the fans to run full speed trying to cool it off. Disconnect everything from the pc and take it somewhere to clean it out. Remove the side panel an use a can of compressed air or an air compressor to blow all dust out the interior of the pc. Pay close attention to the heat sink on the processor and the cooling fans. When blowing around the fans hold the fan in place with a pencil to prevent it from spinning as this might damage the fan. You need to clean out the inside of a pc sitting on the floor every 6 months. If you have cats or dogs that shed living inside then every 4 months. If it is sitting up high and you have no animals then every year may be good enough.

Desktop computer fan runs constantly


Hi,

Desktop fans do run constantly, you cannot avoid this.

The reason they get loud is because there will be a build up of dust on the fan blades.

To rectify this problem turn off the computer and remove the power cord from the rear. Then you need to remove the side panel from the base unit to expose the motherboard.

You will see that inside the case it is full of dust. Look at the CPU fan (the fan on the motherboard) also take notice of any case fans too, they are at the back.

To clean the fans and the case you can use a clean dry paintbrush or compressed air.

Once the inside of the case is cleaned you will see a noticeable drop in noise.


Regards.

Fans on Mac Intel Tower


I would suspect it needs a good internal cleaning. The accumulated dust will cause the computer to overheat. Disconnect all cables and take the unit to a place where you can clean it. Remove the side panel and then with a can of compressed air or an air compressor blow all dust out of the unit. Pay special attention to the heat sink on the processor. Make sure you clean the power supply fan. Be sure and not touch any internal components without first grounding yourself to the chassis. It is best to do this outside as the dust will fly everywhere. You should clean the inside at least once a year. Merry Christmas.

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


In side you're ZV5000 are two fans. These fans sit on a spindle which spins. The spindle may be worn which is giving you that loud noise. (Or a fan blade could be bent or warped from heat).
The fan it’s self may be loose & can be tightened.
The only way to check if the spindle is worn would be to dissemble the ZV5000. With the correct instruction you can check the fans. (And also clean the fans & copper heat sinks).
Here is a link to do this you're self, including pictures.

It's worth taking a look & saving you're self a few bucks.

Good Luck & take you time!

Cleaning the fan and heat sink


I would first check for any trojans, virus's and spyware, and any programmes running at start up you don't need, as that can cause overworking of the processor, then instead of stripping down the notebook, which i don't recommend,look around any vented area of your notebook and hoover out the vents gently, this will remove any dust blokages. Give your system a good clean out with this excellent free tool called ccleaner and you can also dissable any startup programmes you dont want with the programme also. Download it here, fre and free updates and spyware free, click link and then on the right of link click download latest version. http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
