Its good to keep like that since PCs need cooling regularly. Not like laptops. Laptops are designed based on architectures which provides cooling internally. Using copper pipes is an example. Anyway there are ways to control the fan speed. Before that check which fan that runs constantly. There are several fans in a system unit. Such as CPU fan, Graphic controller fan, chassis fan, extra coolers. First thing is that you have to adjust your power scheme. Go to control panel and then power options. Select appropriate settings.
If you use Vista as the OS this is a common problem since its visual effects eat the cpu. Specially that side bar and other things and drivers.
Check whether you have a process which is using 100% cpu using task manager. (Processes tab in task manager). If so either you have to stop it or terminate it of its a hanged program.
There are options to control the fan speed in your bios. Check the bios. To enter bios you can use one of these keys. Del, F2, F10 or Esc. One will let you in. Check the fan options and specially for a QFan option. You have to adjust the settings to control the fan. Finally there are hardware controllers which controls the fan speed near the fan (built in to the fan or near the fan's plug on the mother board). You can adjust them if you need to.
Please rate the answer if it helps you to overcome the issue. Thanks for contacting Fixya

Fan runs loud


You can try to update the BIOS - that used to correct the issue when I supported these a few years ago. Does it run loud in Safe Mode as well? If so, chances are the fan will require replacing.

The fan keeps on running at odd times,,,,


Hi,
You don't have to worry about that. Fan only runs when your CPU is heating up. If you are running a lot of programs at the same time it can heat the processor and can turn the fan on. Fan also runs a lot if computer performance is slow. If you can keep your CPU in a cooler place then it will run less.
Good Luck!

Compaq presario sr2172nx shuts down unexpectedly. Very loud fan. How do I adjust those settings in the BIOS?


The fan is probably heat-sensitive, and your computer is probably overheating, despite having the fan spinning at 100%.

Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the side-panel.
Using a can of compressed-air, give your motherboard & CPU & power-supply a "blow-job", to remove all the dust that has accumulated, and is acting like a blanket that is trapping the heat.

When your computer is running at a lower temperature, you won't need to adjust the BIOS-settings.

The fan has a third wire, that is used to tell the uProcessor that it is spinning and in some cases how fast.
Replace the fan and that should fix it. Spares form many suppliers on ebay

I recently had a new power supply installed in my compaq presario SR1318NX, now the fans run almost constantly. The air from the fans does not feel hot, nor does the tower. Is this serious?


Hi,

In a desktop computer the fan is supposed to run constantly otherwise the processor would get that hot the system would repeatedly shut down or even damage the processor or motherboard.

If the fan is noisy then chances are that the fan blades need cleaning of dust.

Other than that you have nothing to worry about.


Regards.

Broken fan on compaq


don't keep running it until you replace the fan. Look for one on ebay or around the web. It is shutting down because of heat. A $20 fan could cost you your whole laptop if you keep running it.
