All of them, as the MoBo is where the cooling fan is drawing air over the Prossesor. Experience is a plus.

How to fix noisy fan?

look for the fan opening, get a can of air and blow it threw the fan vent, while the computer is off, than let it set for a few minutes than start it back up, if fan is still noisy, than you need a new fan installed.
if you want to do the work yourself you can do it your self. now if you dont want to try it than i have a few place to take it for service.
acer authorized dealer, best buy, or if you have a friend that you trust that will fix it for little to nothing except cost of parts, the fan part for the acer should be around 7-10.00 dollars + labor + shop fees. TO FIX LAPTOP CPU FAN

Fan vibration, noisy fan

If this is from a desktop model via the harddrive, try to vaccume it out, lots of greasy dust cant get into the fan and housing. I learned the hard way when my fan seized up and started smoking burned up. If you are not comfortable take it to a pc repair store. You can try and open it up by removing the screws and see if buildup is the problem, be weary if you have n e type of warranty it can be null and void if you mess around "inside" of it.

I have an HP pavilian dv7 laptop and i keep hearing a rattling noise -possible screw in fan or broken fan because it overheats and rattles when i move the computer, i cant figure out how to open the back...


I couldn't find a disassembly guide for the DV7 but I did find one for a DV9.

This might help give you an idea on what needs to be done. Essentially there's a few components you need to remove first before you can undo the main case screws to pull apart the case.

Also worth mentioning is the fact that you'll likely have to go in through the top as opposed to looking at the fan from the back. This means taking out the keyboard etc.

Hpoe this helps

How do I get the back off My Acer 5620 laptop. The CPU fan does not seem to be spinning and it keeps shutting down. I've pulled about 30 screws out of it and the thing doesn't want to split.

hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? friend if the cpu fan stops spinning the air inside and the processor heats up easily thats why it will shut need to replace the fan of the cpu to avoid further problems to occur. in removing the screw it will not be disassembled easily because it has a safety bracket make it open you need to look frot he weak spots and you split that side until it opens the whole unit. thats all good luck hope i helped you.
