Try cleaning it first, laptop fans **** in dust like a vacuum and it soon blocks the airflow so the fan has to work harder to keep tempertures down

Only do this if you feel competent in doing so.

Pulling apart laptops is not for the faint of heart.

If you really must do it there are some
good guides here
.

An alternative is to get a can of compressed air used to clean computers. Put the nozzle on and spray it in every hole you can see without putting the nozzle itself inside the laptop.

Do this outside with glasses on.


You may also want to remove the hard drive and ROM drive.

Take a
peek here for more ideas of what is involved.

There are a few are tips for various things in there.

DON'T touch the CPU cooler unless you know what you are doing and have some thermal grease for CPUs to hand.

To make newer laptops last longer between cleaning a good 3 fan cooling pad is suggested.


Never use a laptop on soft surfaces as the ventilation can act as a mini vacuum cleaner and encourage dirt build up.

Soft surfaces also block the vents causing fans to run more and burn out sooner.

Hope this gives you the information you need

SOURCE: sony pcg-k33 fan is making noises

that's the actual fan, brushes may need some fresh oil (like wd40), means opening the lappy back up and removing the fan and dropping some oil inside the fan bearing area (where the fan and hub connect)
this should stop the sounds and help the fan move freely.
though this is also a sign that the fan is unhealthy and will eventually need replaced.
hope this helps.

I have a Sony Vaio Model PCG-5J2L. Lately, the fan has been really loud, and the bottom of the laptop has been heating up and it is VERY HOT. Also, the other day, it just shut down by itself while I...


That recall is for VPCF11 and VPCCW2 models. Your issue definitely sounds like a heat problem. Sometimes it can be a buildup of dust, fuzz, carpet etc especially if you use it on a bed or the floor. Check all the vents and make sure they are clear. If the fan is making abnormally loud noises, slight grinding it could be failing. Here is one, retails for about 35 dollars. Make sure you get one with a heatsink, better safe then sorry. It is not too difficult to replace, but if you are not comfortable doing it then it is best to take it to a computer repair store.

Have a sony vaio pcg that is over heating can you replace the thermostat on the motherboard or is it with the fan/heat sink unit or is it more likely the fan which isn't turning on


Most likely it is not the fan unless you cannot feel air blowing out or the fan noise. It is rather an accumulation of dust in the radiator vents and fan housing. this will necessitate a partial stripdown to clear it properly, at a pinch you can try vaccuming out the dust, but a full claening is better

Loud fan belt type noise from laptop


There are no belts in a computer, sounds like something is rubbing in your computer cooling fan blades, get a can of Duster ( to clean dust from things) and spray the compressed air into all the vent holes to clean out any dust and debris.

My Sony Vaio pcg 3C2L's fan is always making horrible rumbling noises, like it is overheated and a ball is running between it. even if i only turn it on for five minutes.


Hi would i suggest is do not turn it on at all, while you can get a cooling pad for you laptop it does not work that well. Please take it to a repair shop inmediately. Sony and HPs tend to overheat a lot and the problem is that the video card on the motherboard goes bad and you will have to buy a replacement is the most expensive part rather than just the fan+labor. I hope this helps.

Replacing a fan on a Sony PCG-6G4L notebook


You can download manuals, etc. at http://esupport.sony.com/ You can also order parts from there. There are several models listed for the PCG-6G4L that you specify, so I can't be as specific as I'd like to be, but you will be able to find it easily and put your new fan in :-)
