unfortunately it appears that the internals are shot
if the funny noise is a clicking sound or squeal then the repair is a new hd unit as they are generally not repairable.

High pitched sound coming from refrigerator sounds like loud whiny humm


TRY AND LISTEN TO UR COMPRESSOR SEE IF U HEAR ANNYTHING THERE? IF NOT CHECK UR COMPRESSOR CONDENSOR FAN AND FREEZER EVAPORATOR FAN FOR BLOCKAGE OR OBSTRUCTIONS? OR POSSIBLY 1 OF THE FANS MOTOR IS GOING OUT MAKING FUNNY SOUNDS, ANOTHER THING COULD BE A BAD DOOR SEAL ISSUES WHICH OVERWORKS THE COMPRESSOR AND CAN CAUSE IT TO MAKE FUNNY NOISES

My Toshiba laptop P205D-S7802 is starting to make a sound like the fan motor is starting to go out. Can this motor be replaced?


Yes, it sounds like your CPU Fan is about to blow. Once it goes completely out and not turn on, your laptop will run hot and shut down. The fan is replaceable and they don't cost a lot. However your laptop will have to be completely disassembled to get to it and therein lies the cost. Get a quote from your local repair shop, then try these guys at: http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com
They will repair it and ship it back via Fedex or UPS and their price will beat most quotes including the shipping.

Alienware m15x fan noise problem


Get a can of compressed air and give a good blast to open ports and cooling fans, this may resolve the issue, if not the fan will need to be replaced. I do recommend the computer be taken apart down the road for good cleaning.

Spinning fan attracts a lot of dust over the years hence the noise that it makes when spinning. To avoid laptop overheating, follow the information from this link.

I wouldn't recommend opening it up unless you know what you are doing. If you want to open it up, watch this video about how to do it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgrm9RfYpsQ
Different model, but similar process.

My computer is becoming really hot and noisy. After turning on the computer, everything is good (no noise). Once around 15 minutes passes by or I open up a lot of programs together, my computer starts...


Sounds like the fan is wearing out, as it heats up the fan needs to spin faster and if the bearings are wearing out it will start getting louder and it will also get hotter because the fan cannot keep up the heat being produced. You can replace the fan, most computer shops will carry replacements, also get a can of compressed air and give the inside of the computer a good cleaning. This will help keep things cooler as well. Also make sure that the air vents on the outside of the case are clear as well.

The fan in modem makes loud noises at times


Modems don't have fans.
I think you mean your fan in the computer makes a loud noise. Some computers have settings where the fan speeds up if you are doing a lot of things--making the computer work harder.
Some fans make noise just before they fail. Depends on the type of noise. If it's a sound that has a lot of rattling in it or maybe a high screeching sound, I'm thinking you'll be needing a new fan. Probably a CPU fan is the culprit. Also, fans on video cards often go bad--so you'll have to open the case and listen to where the sound comes from.

My computer makes a loud noise,how can I fix this problem please?


there are a limited number of things that could be making noises. take off the cover of your computer and listen close when you start it. A fan would be the first thing i'de suspect. check them all- cpu fan- motherboard fan-videocard fan- powersupply fan.
I would also listen to the powersupply (rear top of computer)
only things left to check that could be making noise are the cd/dvd rom, floppy drive (both wont run without a disk in them) and your hard drive which would be the last one to make noise. the hard drive runs everytime your computer moves data, if it is getting loud, i would suggest backing up important files and shopping for a new one. Post again here if I can be of further assistance.
Regards..

Fan/ engine whining sound


If the fan is only making wind noise it is ok. If it is making matalic noise replace fan. It would be a good idea to clean (blow)out the dust and dirt for the inside of the computer at this time.

Fan/Overheating issues averatec 3200 series Laptop


Fans on laptops run when the CPU is taxed. The more its taxed the louder it will be due to higher fan speed. The laptop over the years has gotten bloated with programs and stuff that gets in and stays on your hard drive. The more programs running in the backround the more the CPU is taxed. Try uninstalling useless programs first, empty your recycle bin, delete temporary internet files and cookies, run the disk cleanup utility then perform a scan disk and a deframent. Also you may want to add more memory to your system if it needs it. I use crucial's website (crucial.com) to scan the computer and tell me what memory I can use in my machine. Hope this info helps you out.
