Samsung n150 plus notebook making crackling noises

I would recommend getting the laptop checked for safety reasons, the sound may be coming from the hard drive, it makes a similiar sound when processing information, for example when windows is starting the sound will be more pronounced, if that is the case it is normal. If the sound comes from the cooling fan it should checked for ware.

There are intake vents on the bottom of the notebook. Make sure these vents are not obstructed by putting the notebook on a flat hard surface when in use. You may also want to get a can of compressed air and clean out the notebook. Just spray the compressed air in the intake vents on the bottom and spray in the exhaust vents on the sides.

Also, make sure there is no CD/DVD in the optical drive. Sometimes these will spin and the sound can resemble a fan.

ASUS Lap top computer, 2 months old' makes loud fan type noises at each start up.


Its normal for a laptop computer or a desktop computer to spin its fans at maximum speed during start up - its part of the power on self test.

If the fan is very loud like on this video the sound is very bad -

that would be a bad fan, constant bad noise. but if your fan only makes noise in start up, its normal.

your warranty should cover the replacement of the fan if its bad.

What kind of noise you hear?

Rising spinning noise is normal. When palying movie or music it gets to some level and continue with the same noise.
