Noisy cooling fan

Hello! You may have a cheap and loud fan. If it was not noisy earlier, you may have to clean it. It is not difficult at all. First, buy the cheapest clean compressed air spray on the market (approx $5.00-8.00). You just unscrew the computer chassis, and look for all fans. IMPORTANT: before you open the chassis, UNPLUG the PC. Now, if you don't want to "un-cable" the whole PC, just open the windows in your room. Spray the air onto the fan and below the fan where the heatsink is. A LOT of dust will fly blow off, you'll see.
Where are fans in your PC?
1.) On the CPU heatsink.
2.) one or two in the Power Supply Unit (where all the cables are coming out, kind of a metal box - just spray into it too.
3. Graphic card
4. Chassis fan(s)
Clean them all with the airflow from the compressed clean air can.
In addition I'd recommend you clean the other parts and boards, so you have a nice clean PC.
You may watch the attached video too, if you want to go deeper into it, but in my case it always helps. Note, that if your PC is really full of dust, you'll need the whole can to clean it. But it's worth it.
Hope I could help. If you have questions just leave a testimonial and I'll come back to you and help you with pleasure!

My acer 5750g notebook is bocomming hot and noisy on the power source side

The cooling fan will need to be replaced, go to 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.

Why does my PC fan run continuesly?

Usually, there are two fans on a desktop PC. Some computer have three.

One cools down the power supply and it may be quite noisy after a while because the dust in the fan. The second one is to cool down the processor and usually it doesn't stops, it only changes its speed according the heat.

If there is a third one, it will stop when the temperature is cool enough for the system.

Only on notebooks the processor fan stops completely after a while to save some energy.

If the fan is noisy and the laptop is running hot, then most likely the fan is faulty and spinning slowly. Therefore the fan is not providing sufficent air flow to cool the laptop's CPU. The fan needs to be replaced and possibly the heatsink assembly needs cleaned to remove dust buildup.

My hp pavilion a6110n product nogg781aa .Has anoisy cooling fan .How do I chang it.

If it's the processor fan that's noisy you can purchase a replacement. The fan and heatsink are normally a complete assembly you can find from many vendors online. This computer has a type AM2 socket; you need to make sure to get a cooling fan for that type. Be sure the replacement will fit into the same space as the original.

If it's the power supply fan thats loud, there may be a couple of possible causes. It may just be a noisy fan, in which case you can replace the power supply. Make sure to get one that has at least the same power rating as the original. Or the fan may be running at its maximum speed. I don't know about this computer in particular, but many computers control the fan speed depending on how hot the processor is (determined by sensors built into the main board). If the fan is running at its top speed, it can be quite noisy. This might be due to a defective power supply or problems with the fan control on the system board
