The fan on my R52 has been getting noisier of late, and now when I turn on the laptop it makes a fan noise (as bad as it has been) and after about 4 seconds the laptop shuts down and Fan Error is displayed in the top left hand corner of the screen.

Fan noise


This is just a consequence of normal wear & tear, most Laptops, & Desktop's Fan's actually sound louder over time as the bearing in the fan wears, this causes more noise, it is not too much to worry about. I guess you could replace your fan, but it would mean disassembly of the unit. Get a program called Speedfan, with this you can control your fan, this may help. link below. http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php

PT-AE700E projector appears to have gone kaput - not lighting up.


Because of high voltages and heat, there are many safety circuits inside these units. If you have a spare lamp, try replacing the lamp. Initial checks are made before the lamp is fired and sometimes a defective lamp can cause this. Also, can you descruibe what you mean by "noisier than usual"? Is the fan making more noise? Something elase making a noise?

Thanks,
Dan

The fan is making a lot of noise. this has


Is the laptop dirty inside?

If it hasn't been cleaned out regularly, with a can of compressed air for computers, more than likely it is.

Laptops typically have a poor cooling design. For one, everything is crammed into a tiny box.
For two, there is a small duct, (Air Intake Duct), that draws air in.
For three, laptops typically just have 1 small fan.
For four, the Air Intake Duct is located on the bottom of a laptop, or on the side.
This is an excellent (?) area to draw foreign debris in. Another word for foreign debris, would be CRUD.

Hair, Food Crumbs, Lint, Dirt, Dust, and so on.

A laptop's cooling systems primary function is to keep the Processor at a certain temperature. If the processor becomes too HOT, it turns off. (BIOS turns it off)
NO Processor, No computer!

1.The excessive fan noise can be that the fan is spinning at top rate, trying to keep the processor cool. It's having a hard time doing that, because the fan cannot draw enough air in. (Clogged Cooling System with Crud)

2.The excessive fan noise could be that the fan's bearings are bad.

3.The excessive fan noise could be that the Processor is running at 100 percent, (100%), and the fan is running at full speed, in order to keep the processor cool.
Perhaps caused by a virus, or some sort of anti-virus program, or running more than one virus program. (Installed a new anti-virus program lately?)

I recently replace the fan in my IBM Thinkpad R52. Ever since, when using the power cord it suddenly shuts down after booting for about 10 seconds. But if I use the battery it boots fine.


I would open the case back up to make sure nothing else got moved around when you installed the new fan. If it was close to where power plugs into the laptop, you might have knocked something loose that could be either stopping the fan and causing heat to shut you down, or causing a short when the fan varies its speed.

I had a Panasonic bath fan installed the week before Thanksgiving. It was represented that this fan was virtually silent. It is however, noisier than the 22-year old fan it replaced. My contractor tells...


Vibration noise is usually due to inballanced, or damaged fan blade.

Take off the coveer, make sure its installed properly, the blade is not cracked, and check for ballanced motor/bracket/blade.

They typically have rubber bushings between the motor mounts and the housing to dampen vibration noise.

Try removing the battery and starting up just on power supply. May be a bad battery. If that doesn't work let me know.
