The fans are controlled by the bios, There is a temp sensor that tells the bios the temprature of 1. The Proccessor, and 2. the board. This all depends on the options of your board ofcourse. When the temp sensor says it getting warm, the fan RPM's are increased to push more air. If you replace one of these fans, make sure it has 3 leads. 2 are for power and one is the RPM sensor that tell the bios if it's running or not. On some of the old motherboards you could set the setting by going in to the bios. I beleive they are all locked now but you can still see them to check if they are running or not, or if its getting hot. You might want to check to see if its getting hot. if it is, move it to a cooler location and check again.

How do I check the CPU cooling fan setting ? How do I access the TV tuner ?


Is it full of dust and the motherboard has maxed the speed in an attempt to cool it? Otherwise, go into your BIOS and confirm that the fan speed controller is enabled. The Control Panel in Windows may also have a setting.

Why does my fan on my Gateway ZX4931 always run loud?


does it has variable speed feature?, clean the heat dissipator, is clogged with lint and hairs! and always runs @ full speed, also if you're already there, might as well reapply thermal grease to the thermal dissipator.
ALSO, because you will have the fan dismounted, is so cheap you can put a NEW QUALITY fan (or fan dissipator combo) sometimes bearings gets loose and the axle wobbles (because of costs all OEM fans runs on cheap bushings) new aftermarket PRO-fans runs on ball bearings.
did you checked if a loose wire is not touching the fan blades?

I have acer power2000 and the fan very noisy


There could be a setting in your BIOS , called " FAN SPEED CONTROL "

Turn this on, and it will go slower, so less noisy.

Fan noisy at steady high speed


Try replacing the cpu fan. The reason why the cpu fan is noisy its because the bearings are rusty and need some lubricants. But in this case you have to replace them. For me there's no need to upgrade your bios. Its just a hardware problem.

The computer next to me right when i turn it on sounds like the fan keeps speeding up almost like its about to explode.


Normal
The computer senses whenever the processor is getting hot or whenever a high-processor-utilization program is running and will speed-up the coolong fans.
You can replace the noisy fans with more quiet fans, but they will also speed up, but not explode.

CPU FAN SPEED IN HP Compaq d530 Small Form Factor Desktop PC


The fan/heat sink on these models get plugged with dust very easily, use an air compressor or can of air to blow the dust out of the heat sink and fan. In extreme cases the thermal paste gets dried out and needs to be re-applied to properly cool the processor.

My hp pavilion a6110n product nogg781aa .Has anoisy cooling fan .How do I chang it.


If it's the processor fan that's noisy you can purchase a replacement. The fan and heatsink are normally a complete assembly you can find from many vendors online. This computer has a type AM2 socket; you need to make sure to get a cooling fan for that type. Be sure the replacement will fit into the same space as the original.

If it's the power supply fan thats loud, there may be a couple of possible causes. It may just be a noisy fan, in which case you can replace the power supply. Make sure to get one that has at least the same power rating as the original. Or the fan may be running at its maximum speed. I don't know about this computer in particular, but many computers control the fan speed depending on how hot the processor is (determined by sensors built into the main board). If the fan is running at its top speed, it can be quite noisy. This might be due to a defective power supply or problems with the fan control on the system board
