Usually it only turns on when the CPU is used alot or when it starts to warm up. But are you saying that it runs when it's shut off? Then no.

Acer fan wont turn off


Is the computer starting up ?

Computers allow us to connect with people from around the world, and successfully complete school and business work. Unfortunately, technical issues can arise after prolonged use of a computer or due to manufacturer issues. A computer fan that runs all the time can be from your personal habits when using your computer. Fortunately inexpensive steps can be taken to resolve the matter.

ventilation b> If you are using a laptop computer in your lap or on a cloth for an extended period of time, your computer may be overheating, causing the fan consistently run. Since the computer has little insulation between the surface and the motherboard, the fan stays on. Purchase a cooling pad for the laptop. It can be found at your local office supply store. If you don't want to buy a cooling pad, you can periodically lift your laptop up and sit it on a desk, countertop or another flat surface. If your desktop is overheating, it could be because it is in a small area with little ventilation. Ensure your desktop is in an area that allows air to circulate. How to Properly Clean Your Desktop Cooling System & Fan http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgOaIJ82gFM b> Dust b> You computer fan may have accumulated a lot of dust, which causes the fan to run continuously. Purchase compressed air and periodically spray the computer fan to loosen up any dust that may have accumulated. Most computer fans are exposed, so accessing the fan should not be a challenge. Technical issues b> In some cases, your computer may have either a defective fan or thermostat. Computer providers, such as Dell, allow you to purchase a new fan and replace it yourself. For thermostat issues, you may have to contact a computer repair professional for assistance. Computer is overworked Depending on the age of your computer multiple programs that are running can cause it to overheat. Watching a lot of DVDs, playing video games, and listening to music on your computer also can cause overheating. Considering closing some of your programs and rebooting your computer. Check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Thermal-Compound-Roundup-February-2012/1490 Viruses or spyware b> Spyware can continuously run on your computer, causing the fan to overheat.

My Fan runs all the time on my HP Pavillion a6720f


GIF's and certain media and even Flash will make your Fan run continuously. Observe what you are doing when you hear the fan run. Also you said you cleaned the fan, did you open the bottom plate and then clean it? Also, is there a hard surface you are keeping the laptop on or are you sitting in bed using the laptop?

Fan running continuously


the fan in your computer is constantly running to cool down the cpu and it is normal for it to increase it's speed, your fan should run quietly even it increases the rpm. But if you hear a loud noise in the fan, i think there's something wrong with it. I suggest for you to check the fan if it's coming in contact with anything. If the fan is visible while your laptop is operating, you can observe it to know what is really happening. I don't know what type of fan hp uses on their laptops, maybe something is loose already on the fan so better check it or bring it to a service center.

Fan just work for seconds


Replace the fan or your computer will run hot and keep turning off.

Or are you saying this is what happens when you power on the computer? if so: When you press the power button do you hear fansrunning, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lightsconstantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer ofthe DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the laptop is trying toboot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

My laptop makes a very strange noise all the time when I turn it on it is a extremely annoying occurrence. I have had this problem for a long time it doesn't affect the way it runs it just is annoying.


Possibly the CPU cooling fan. I would strongly reccomend you get this checked soon, a CPU cooling fan is relatively inexpensive to replace compared to over-heated laptop components!
