    My PC also has fan noises. It sounds like rattling and grinding.
    Is there a solution?

    I usually turn it off to let it cool off. This helps but is only a temporary solution.

    A few times per week a loud fan will turn on inside my PC. No rattling, just a big vacuum cleaner noise. It lasts about a minute then turns off. The PC has never done this in the last 4 years and works fine otherwise, even when the noise happens. It is cool to the touch.

    What does it sound like? Does the fan sound like it is spinning faster (airplane sound) or is it more like a grinding or rattling?

Hey Guys,

I know it's one year ahead, but I had a similar problem and resolved it. You need a air compressor can to clean out all the dust. My old computer which is 3 years old use to make a very large noise. Simply fixed it by cleaning the processor as it was full of dust

Usually the fan on graphic card dies first. It can be replaced with another one but I'd suggest you to build in 80 or 100 mm fan to blow directly on your graphic card cooler. Remove the lid and check if perhaps some cable has fallen close/into fan blade. It must be one of those two. I'm 90% certain.

Acre z5700 turns off


A really loud fan can be one of two things - neither is very good to have for very long. Most newer motherboards support multi-speed fan operation based on CPU temperature. This keeps fan noise at a minimum because the fan only has to run fast (and loud) if the CPU exceeds a specific threshold temperature. The loud noise could also be from a fan that is starting to fail and is binding, thus running slower than normal. Either of these conditions is indicative of a problem that kills PCs - heat. Open the case and carefully examine the heat sink fins and the fan on the CPU. If they are caked with dust (especially the fins), then the CPU will likely overheat and shut down. Get some canned air designed for cleaning electronic components and blow the dust from the fins and the fan. Restart your system a see if the fan runs slower and quieter now, Machines that are in dusty environments, around smokers, or placed on the floor are especially prone to dirt buildup. Periodic cleaning with the canned air is the way to keep your PC happy and healthy.

Dell optiplex GX620 loud processor fan noise like a vaccum. I upgraded to windows 7 and also upgraded to 4gb of ram and a new hd video card as well as a 1tb hd. I bought 4 more gbs of ram but windows...


I don't think you can install 8gb of ram into that desktop. If the processor fan is too loud check it for dust or any other obstructions. If there aren't any try replacing the fan - it could be a bearing in the fan.

Loud fan


Hello

I have a gforce 9600gt oc addition and that fan is loud beyound your wildest expectation, but although there is lots of utillities you can install to reduce fan speed thus reducing the noise, but can cause permanent harm to your system(it will most probably overheat). You can try blowing all the dust of the fan using compressed air to reduce the rolling resistance of the fan. You can find a fan speed utillity with the name of LG X110 fan utility from google, developed by msi, but i wount recomend it. Hope this can help you, please rate this

Best regards

Computer noise


More likely one of the fans, but could be the hard drive. Open the case and listen. Fan on power supply, fan on processor, or hard drive are the most likely sources of the noise. Processor fans and power supplies are both cheap and easy to replace. Hard drive is a bit more expensive and you must back it up (which you already regularly do, right?) if you want to keep your data.

My computer makes a loud noise in the fan


The drive door issue may indicate a virus infection. As to the fan, you would have it replaced. If not under warranty open the case and track which fan the noise is coming from

Loud fan noise maybe bearings..only 5 months old new


usually loud fan noise in computers means that the fan you have got is too fast for you computer or too slow for your computer. go back to the place you got your fan from and ask them to check its compatibility with your computer.
otherwise try cleaning the fan or removing it and making the screws a little bit looser. might jusdt be rubbing

Loud noise


Typical problem in most computers, the fan is experiencing a "burn out." This means there is either something caught in the fan causing it to create noise, or the motor is going bad. there are two fixes for this problem.
1) open you computer's case according to its manual and remove the system cooling fan and give it a thorough cleaning.
2) you may need to replace the cooling fan with its recommended replacement model.

Hope this helps!
