Re: COD4 Multiplayer makes computer fans loud and hot.
When you play online games it will usually require more system resources to power. Your processor also handles the data that is being sent and received during your online session. Some code for online games have more overhead than others. I do not believe that it has anything to do with your machine, but more the software and network overhead that the multiplayer game requires. If you notice that both single and multiplayer run on seperate executables...
Single Player = C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\iw3sp.exe
Multiplayer = C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\iw3mp.exe

If the fan is very dusty that an cause a lot of noise as it will be unbalanced. If the fan is on all of the time, maybe the bios requires updating. There may be a GPU issue and that will make the cpu run hot.
The cooling fan will need to be replaced, go to www.ebay.com Type make and model of laptop, refine search to cooling fan. In order to fix this properly the computer must be dismantled down to the motherboard level, remove old fan and heatsink and blow out dirt and dust with a can of compressed air, next remove old thermal grease with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel from the processor and heatsink, now apply fresh compound and assemble along with the new cooling fan.
The problem is with your Cleaning!
I think that you've removed the Heat sink and wiped off all the Thermal Paste off the processor while cleaning the laptop.
Please don't switch on your computer the processor could get damaged.
To solve this Purchase Thermal Paste appropriate for your laptop from a local store and apply it carefully on top of the processor and install the heat sink above it firmly this should solve the problem.
To be more safe watch the video below first:
Noisy fan means some kinda obstruction like dusty fan or fan might be going bad. Try to get a can of compressed air and blow in to holes on the bottom of the laptop and side vents. Make sure not to tilt or turn can upside down since it will mess it up since it turns in to ice/water. If that does not help it might need to be changed. Good luck.
Hi, Fans are usually noisy due to a build up of dust that's collected on the fan blades. The best way to clean them is to get a can of compressed air and give short blasts through the air vents, also turn the laptop upside down and give a couple of blasts the CPU fan grill. Alternatively you can get a clean, stiff paintbrush to clean the fan blades and blow through the air vents to remove any dust. The laptop won't get as hot or noisy if you clean the air vents and CPU fan blades regularly.
The problem with fans is there really isn't much you can do with them. Normally they begin to make noise as the bearing assembly begins to wear, or it might just need to be cleaned. In either case you need to crack open the case on your laptop, then you can inspect the fan. You can try cleaning it at that point, but usually its easier just to replace it. The reason why it makes more noise when you play videos is because video media requires more system resources to run, which also generates more heat. So, while you have your laptop open you may want to check your video card (which should also have a fan) and make sure that its clean. A dirty video card will **** out a lot earlier than it should.
The fan can be cleaned. You may want to take it into a computer repair store and get it done as well as inspection of it. Noisy fans are caused by dust in the bearings. In most cases, this can create the noise since the bearing are being grinded down.
