Loud fan noise on desktop pc


Could be the case fan or the CPU fan. Open the case and determine which fan is noisy by unplugging them one at a time. Replace the bad fan with a new one and you are good.

V6420us - noisy fan how do I gain access to the fan for cleaning? Thank You.


Cleaning the fan won't stop the noise, it may help a little - the little bearing has worn having rotated millions of times.
Try a can of"air duster" spray to blow the muck away from the fan area.
You may need a new fan - the part is pennies but the labour will be more!!

Hi, my compaq CQ50-115NR used to make great fan noise...now, nothing and it gets hotter and hotter...what should I do?


Have the fan replaced.

The 'great fan noise' you heard was the fan's bearings.
The looser the fan bearings became, the more the fan tilted, allowing the center hub of the fan to rub against the bearing base.

A laptop has a poor cooling system. All of the hardware components, are crammed into one tiny box. Air is the only cooling medium to keep these components cool.

The Processor, and the graphics chip are the two components that give off the most heat.
When a Processor becomes too hot, it turns off.
(BIOS turns it off)
This is a Fail Safe feature built-in, to keep the processor from burning up.

I would advise not using the laptop until this has been corrected.
Is the laptop still under warranty?

Compaq Presario fan is not functioning. It is - fan is plugged into the motherboard but the fan will not run - causing my laptop to overheat - I cannot find a fan controlling software that is compatible...


sounds like a burnt up fan so you might just want to take it to your local computer tech have them replace the fan and put some new cpu compound in their and it will never over heat again

Compaq presario sr2019uk noisey fan


Most likely un related. Make sure their are not wires coming near the fan to make the noise.

If its a 'grindy' sound it could just be the ball bearings wearing out. But if you just worked in their, maybe something is rubbing near it.
