    my prob is that I could not figure out how to open the case and change the fan.

    Any idea where to find a Samsung manual?

    The fan in the top left corner is making a bad buzzing sound. I've been told to remove the case and clean the fan but trying to get the case off is almost impossible?

    Is the sound coming through the speakers or just coming out of the laptop case?

Fan noise

Is it free of dust , vents? The fan always comes on at boot. The RPM's will change when the sensors detect a certain temp to prevent overheating and damage to your machine. Is it getting sufficent air flow from the fan intake on the bottom through the machine to the exit vents?

My friend got a Samsung R40 laptop as a gift, but it had a Korean O/S. I was able to load XP Professional on it, but now there's no audio. It says "no audio device installed." Got any...

when your friend give it to you did she/he also gives some cd installers? it says no audio device installed doesn't mean there's no audio card on it, it's just that windows xp doesn't support the audio card in the r40 laptop that you have. if you can do upgrade it to windows 7 it would be better because win 7 supports a lot of hardware. if you don't want just try to download the audio driver for you laptop. do you happened to know the audio card model of the laptop. you can see it as you turn on the your laptop you will see new hardware detected try to get the serial number of the device and ping me here so i can guide you were to download the sound card driver for you.thanks..

Samsung r40 shuts down after running for about 20 mins, was told cooling fan was not working so stripped down laptop cleaned fan (was full of dust) reasemmbled and ran all day yesterday, switched on this...

The CPU fan may be faulty and not spinning freely.
If you had removed the heatsink off the CPU did you place new thermal grease/paste on the CPU before installing the heatsink back on the CPU?

Samsung Fridge Noise

Hi Laura. Welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

What your hearing is a fan motor usually an evaporator fan motor in the freezer compartment. More often than not when this symptom appears there is ice build up on the evaporator coils due to an automatic defrosting problem. The fan blade can also be damaged so that the fan motor gyrates wildly in the mounting bracket or the fan bearings could be faling.

Having mention all of the above here is a way you can determine of you have defrost problem or not.
1. Unplug the unit at the wall
2. Remove the freezer contents
3. Place a fan blowing into the freezer section for a bit over 2 hours. Mind you this will make a constant water mess so be ready to tend to the drips and minor puddles.
4. After the manual defrosting session with the fan reload the freezer contents.
5. Plug the unit in at the wall outlet
6. Check for normal temps after about 4 hours
7. There should be NO FAN NOISE.

If the fan noise ceased due to your manual defrosting of the unit then you can probably expect the ice build up to repeat in 3 to 4 days along with decreasing performance of your refrigerator.

IF the ice comes back... you have an automtic defrost problem that will need serviced.

The monitor screen is cracked. When you press it you can see the jel or whatever spreading. I was told that I needed a monitor,

Hi there
You have been given the correct advice.
Once your monitor screen has cracked the LCD ( liquid crystal display) tends to run or move, if you take the screen out you can replace it via the code on the back of the screen.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
