Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

Loud fan like noise on intermittently but often

Doesn't seem like the hard drive noise. Just did performance check, dumped cookies, all extra internet and unnecessary files, cleaned disk and reformated drive. Noise is probably diminished but still comes on and off fairly frequently when laptop is on. Also does not seem excessively hot.

    I said reformated and meant defragmented -so you can see how literate I am - will try this to see what happens - have also just used 3M dust remover and blow out lots of dust and debris from the area that seems to be the fan. This too has decreased the noise - may be getting there. Will try removing hard drive next.

Fan/Overheating issues averatec 3200 series Laptop


Fans on laptops run when the CPU is taxed. The more its taxed the louder it will be due to higher fan speed. The laptop over the years has gotten bloated with programs and stuff that gets in and stays on your hard drive. The more programs running in the backround the more the CPU is taxed. Try uninstalling useless programs first, empty your recycle bin, delete temporary internet files and cookies, run the disk cleanup utility then perform a scan disk and a deframent. Also you may want to add more memory to your system if it needs it. I use crucial's website (crucial.com) to scan the computer and tell me what memory I can use in my machine. Hope this info helps you out.

Unbearable noise


Mine does the same thing, for the third time. Seems the plastic fan on mine, lasts a little over a year. Not hard to change, just a bad design on the part. I'm ordering an extra tis time, to save on freight.

Cooling fan


Yes. It can be replaced. Try to check which fan is making that sound. Do you have a laptop or a PC? On a PC, there are 3 standard fans inside it. one for the CPU, one for the power supply and one for the computer casing fan as well. It depends on which of those fans it's coming from. On a laptop, some laptops' fans actually makes a loud noise which is common but there is a way that it could be lessened but it might slow down your pc and it might overheat it as well. The loud noise on the fans of a laptop actually indicates that it's trying to cool down the system. If it doesn't stop the loud noise, it could indicate a problem switching the fans back to normal and would just continue to spin fast. Try to contact your PC tech for further diagnostics on the laptops fan to indicate if the problem is with the fan or the mainboard as well.
