Fan making noise


There are 2 possibilities: First, your fan, air inlet and air outlet are dirty/dusty. In this case you can use canned air to clean them up. If the dust become a dust ball, then you may have to open the laptop's base or just need a tweezer to lift the dust ball. The second possibility is the fan is dying (broken). In this case, you need to replace the fan, and it is not easy (you need to disassemble your laptop) to replace the fan.

The cooling fan of my laptop is not functioning correctly. What do i do?


well is it running slowly or making noise? if it's making a rattling type sound the bearing may have gone out and if that's the can you should replace it, you can find a guide online on how to disassemble it. the fan itself should be relatively cheap. if it's running slowly or something along those lines you can always blow the inside of the laptop out with compressed air. good luck!

Nc6000 fan noise


your computer notebook requires a thorough de-dusting

the fan may be losing its operability, which means you will destroy the CPU if the fan stops working

i suggest you take to an authorised HP centre -- the heat sink fan may require being replaced

Fan noise


This is just a consequence of normal wear & tear, most Laptops, & Desktop's Fan's actually sound louder over time as the bearing in the fan wears, this causes more noise, it is not too much to worry about. I guess you could replace your fan, but it would mean disassembly of the unit. Get a program called Speedfan, with this you can control your fan, this may help. link below. http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php

Hp desktop, 4 years old but in excellent shape, does not start anymore. Led in the back flashing green light very quickly.


If you mean that no fans or anything else spins, then it's probably that the power supply has died. I would suggest that the replacement be at least the same watts as the original or greater. Hopefully that's all it is.

GE Eterna stopped cooling. Not even 2 years old!


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Check the fans especially the condenser fan. The noise if you listen close is probably the klixon cycling because the compressor is hot. If the condenser is plugged (real dirty), sign of a clean house, and/or the condenser fan is bad you will not get cooling. If the condenser fans operating properly and the fans inside the freezer and refrigerator are operating that would indicate serious problems assuming the compressor is operating.

Good Luck,

Loud buzzing noise......possibly the fan?


is the battery ok? have it tested, sounds like a weak battery that is failing, the battery lasts about 2 years in most laptops.

Desktop Fan "surges" in and out.


Chazzl,

Probably the desktop fan, a quick way to test for sure is to stop the fan with you finger when it is making the noise.

Just place your finger lightly in the middle of the fan and check if the noise stops.
Dont leave your finger there for more than a couple of seconds and mind the blades as it does smart a bit if you catch them.

Good luck

you will need to replace the fan the reason it stops it the door switch needs to be closed for the fan to operate. with the door open press the switch and see if that is in fact where the noise is coming from if so it sounds like the bearings are going out
