The fan is probably running at high speed because the Case or Processor are overheating (you didn't mention which fan it it) and that is what the fan is supposed to do, and setting it to rev. higher at a higher temp is only going to shorten the life of your unit.
Why not clean the dust from your heat syncs, boards, and fans? As dust is usually the culprit causing the high temperature in the first place, and is 10 to 20 times worse in a smoking environment.

Medion MED MT503 won't start or go through p.o.s.t.


When you say "fan" do you mean case fan or CPU fan? Almost sounds like the CPU fan is inoperative and the system is shutting down on CPU overtemp, then trying to restart.

Replaced motherboard and now fans are loud and fast


Check for proper connection, also check bios speed on fans and make sure heat sink is correctly installed... side note you have fresh item's and higher power faster speed... if there is a controller on fans lower them.

How to update medion ms-7502 Bios?


You download the BIOS update from here. In case you don't speak German, here's the translation:
  1. Download bios7502.exe
  2. Double-click the file and unzip (default is C:\Medion)
  3. Go to the location where you unzipped the files and run WinFlash.exe
  4. You can save you old bios (just in case) as i.e. oldbios.bin
  5. Now open the new bios version with the name W7502MLN.10R and start the update process by clicking the update button.
  6. Reboot and you're done.
Note: Don't run anything else when you're doing this and do not interrupt the process until the reboot is complete. You could risk rendering your BIOS unusable!

Would need more detail but sounds like it is a problem with your processor overheating because of ur fan situation. To be sure of this download a program such as speedfan to gauge your temps.

The fan in modem makes loud noises at times


Modems don't have fans.
I think you mean your fan in the computer makes a loud noise. Some computers have settings where the fan speeds up if you are doing a lot of things--making the computer work harder.
Some fans make noise just before they fail. Depends on the type of noise. If it's a sound that has a lot of rattling in it or maybe a high screeching sound, I'm thinking you'll be needing a new fan. Probably a CPU fan is the culprit. Also, fans on video cards often go bad--so you'll have to open the case and listen to where the sound comes from.

Gateway 831GM Eratic Fan Noise


Hi,

This can be caused by several things:

1. Bad temp sensor
2. Bad voltage, but that will usually cause the whole system to restart
3. Too low maximum temp setting inside the chassis(setting is in bios), often denote as max case temp.

One way to bypass the problem is rig the fan to a molex adapter with a variable voltage molex to 2/3/4pin fan connector and adjust the speed to the maximum quiet setting.

The 831's did run a bit warm so if the case temp setting is set to low it will fluxuate quite a bit. Try adjusting the max case temp up around 50c just to see if that does it, if it does either use the variable voltage dial solution or add a second case fan that's always on, prefferably a low RPM running direct off molex so it will reduce the average temp and therby the need of the monitored case fan to rev up.

Pc will not boot up


Could very well be the power supply. The +12V rail may still be live (hence the fans running), but the others may be down (meaning you won't get a beep signal if the memory modules are removed and the computer restarted).

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!
