Question about ASUS EN7800GTX GeForce 7800 GTX, (256 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Card Fan Problem- I am getting a vibration noise from the fan on the card. Action- I removed the card from the case and cleaned it out as best I can with compressed air. Result- The fan still makes the vibrating noise on start up, and the only way to make it stop is to jiggle it while it is in motion until the noise stops. Question- Is there a way to remove the fan from the card so a better cleaning could take place? If not, any suggestion on what to do?

Without the fan your card may burn. Go to your nearby Pc junk store and get a graphic card fan of same size and voltage. To remove your fan from the card try to push the plastic pins located on the corners of the fan's body. Hope it works .Don't forget to vote me. Tell me again so i may fix your problem. Thanks

Running an Acer Aspire ax5900. The video card fan vibrates loudly for the first 10 minutes of startup. I'm told I need a new video card. Area is clean and dust free. Where is the best place to find a...


Your Acer Aspire, like any other desktop computer system, contains fans inside the case to help vent the heat generated by the internal components.
These fans generally operate quietly and reliably, working in the background to prevent your computer from overheating.
A fan that sounds excessively loud could indicate a problem such as overheating or loose internal components, or it could simply be a normally loud fan.
The key to differentiating between the two involves looking for additional clues from your computer.
Normal Operation
Due to computer configuration and build quality, the fans in some desktops sound louder than others.
Depending on what other brands of computers you've owned or have had experience with, the fan in the Acer may sound louder, when it's actually functioning perfectly.
The fan will run to keep the inside of the computer from overheating, so periodic runs are normal. If the fan runs for long periods or very often, you may have a deeper problem.

Fan Damage and Overheating
A fan can sound loud due to damage, such as broken blades or to a build-up of dirt that impedes normal operation.
This dirt, as well as normal wear and usage, can wear away the lubricant coating on the fan's internal shaft, causing the blades to make excessive noise as they turn. In many cases, a loud fan indicates that the computer is overheating, causing the fan to run more often than usual to try and cool the system.
Depending on the types of components and upgrades within your Acer computer, your current fan may be too small and weak to handle the heat output, and require upgrading to a larger, more powerful fan.


Troubleshooting Take note of when the fan turns on and how long it runs to determine any distinct patterns, whether if it occurs only during certain processes or programs.
Your computer's CPU generates a large amount of heat while in operation, so programs that require large amounts of CPU usage may trigger the fan more often.
Watch for additional signs of overheating, such as sudden shutdowns or computer crashes. Check inside the case for signs of other components touching the fan and causing vibration noise.

Solution

Do not overtax the CPU by opening numerous processor-intensive programs at once.
Check that all screws, cards and wires are securely fastened and away from the fan.
Keep your computer clean inside and out, to prevent the build-up of dirt on the fan blades or air vents and minimize the threat of overheating.
Apply a drop of oil to your fan's shaft to give it proper lubrication and smooth, quiet rotation of the blades.

GeForce video card fan makes very loud lawnmower-like noise and card gets very hot. What to do?


Buy a can of computer compressor air used for cleaning out keyboards and blow the dust and dirt out of the fan. If it is clean then it means the bearings are going on the fan itself and is probably not spinning as fast or as freely as it should causing the video card to get hotter than normal due to insufficient air flow. If this is the case you will need to go to a computer store and get a replacement fan for the card. When the bearings are going it usually causes the fans to get loud.

I will be please if you could suggest a solution in this case. My 1998 Corolla 160i GLE suddenly developed a noisy vibration in the fan unit. The airflow from the unit appears normal as the fan speed is...


This is a common problem. It is much more common in vehicles that do not move for several days at a time. It is usually caused by rodents getting into the blower housing and building nests.

The blower motor assembly must be removed to clean out the debris. Here are the instructions for your vehicle:

BLOWER MOTOR

Removal and Installation

Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove right front door scuff plate. Remove kick panel. Remove lower dash trim panel. Unplug blower motor connector. Remove blower motor. To install, reverse removal procedure.

Card fan makes noise


Turn off your computer, if your familiar on how to open-up you CPU do so, then,

Try cleaning the fan.

What you can do is clean it with a bush (ex. paint brush-a clean one) or a clean cloth.

you can also try to remove the fan then at the center of the fan there's a sticker, you can safely peel it off then you will see the center of the fan, you can apply machine oil on it, then put the sticker back. Then turn on your computer, let's see if you still has the problem :)

Loud vibration sound coming from rear bottom near motor? sounds like my porter cable compressor running.


HI. Just so you know, Hissing and popping is normal on frost free refrigerators, it is the defrost heater, in this case. I would check these following areas to address any other abnormal noises.

If the level of the unit is not adjusted to proper specs, this will create an unstable operating condition, causing many noises to emit from the units structure. inspect the unit for proper level. adjust if needed. Next will be the drain pan. Once removed for cleaning, the pan must be replaced in position correctly. If not, the pan will rattle against the compressor, causing a ping or rattle.Simply reposition the tray if this is the case. The third possible issue will be the condenser fan. The condenser fan is located behind the refrigerator. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to reach it. This fan has a shroud, and if the fan blade becomes warped, it will rub against the shroud, causing noise. This fan blade is whole,and it can be removed and replaced if this is the case. Ok, the fourth problem spot will be the evaporator fan.

The evaporator fan is located at the back of the freezer. It may be necessary to remove obstructions such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, ice maker and the rear inside panel of the freezer. The rear panel may be held in place by retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or depress the retainer clips with a small screwdriver. Check the fan for warped blades. if the blades are warped or mis-aligned, replace it. This fan also is protected by a shroud as well, and it will make noise if the fan blade is damaged.

Last, i would move on to the compressor mounts. This is the most common spot for noise overtime. The compressor sits on rubber mountings. Those rubber mountings are designed to absorb vibration from the compressor. As the mountings age, they can become hard or disintegrate. When this happens, the compressor vibration is transmitted to the refrigerator structure and it can cause noise.


The compressor is located in the rear. It may be necessary to remove an access panel to get to the compressor.

Locate the compressor and remove the screw or retaining clip of just one of the compressor mounts.Using a pry bar, lift up the compressor enough to slip out the rubber mount. Inspect the mount for deterioration. The rubber should be firm but not rigid. If the mount is crumbling or hard, it should be replaced.


This concludes the inspection procedure. Follow carefully, and replace any failed or damaged device.

My fan makes so much noise especially when i play video.Can someone help


The problem with fans is there really isn't much you can do with them. Normally they begin to make noise as the bearing assembly begins to wear, or it might just need to be cleaned. In either case you need to crack open the case on your laptop, then you can inspect the fan. You can try cleaning it at that point, but usually its easier just to replace it. The reason why it makes more noise when you play videos is because video media requires more system resources to run, which also generates more heat. So, while you have your laptop open you may want to check your video card (which should also have a fan) and make sure that its clean. A dirty video card will **** out a lot earlier than it should.

Fan on Graphics card is making noise


I am assuming the noise is an abnormal squeel or such as opposed to the normally annoying fan noise that most cards have. If so...depending on the fan and card model, it can be replaced. But if you are like me, you want it fixed now. Most Fans are sealed and if the bearings go, well thats it for that fan, but some have a sticker on the center of the fan. i you peel that sticker off you might see the bearing, and if you are lucky enough to see that, drop ONE DROP of 3-in-1 oil, or such. if you cannot see a bearing and you cant find a replacement, you should still be able to remove the fan (Carefully). with the fan off, you can soak it in either wd-40 or light oil. after this you must be sure to clean off all excess oil (compressed air is best) before reisntalling.
