Question about Acer Aspire 5535-5050 Notebook

1 Answer

Why does my Acer laptop sound like it's taking off ! There is a whirring noise form underneath on the back left, i thought it might be the fan but it starts as soon as i turn it on but after some time it goes quiet, then starts making a noise again. It is a pretty loud annoying noise that i know should not be there. Kind regards Ian

Hi Ian check to see that you have not left a CD disc in the CD rom /dvd drive--- sometimes they will cause this sort of noise on start up when the computer is looking for an operating system it may look in the cd drive first and scan the non operating system disc before booting from the hard drive

I hope this helps

Why do I have a strange whirring noise occasionally from my laptop. A sort of buzzing sound. Goes off after about 30 secs but comes back in a few minutes.


Could be either the cooling fan or even your hard drive. I have had hard drives make this noise when they are just about to crash.

MY WHIRLPOOL SIDE BY SIDE IS MAKING WIERD NOISES - WHIRRING SOUND. COMPRESSOR?


A whirring sound? Can you tell whether it is coming for the inside of the freezer or underneath the unit? I would suspect one of the fans either blocked by something or starting to go out.

Laptop recently started to make noise on start up, feels and sounds like it's coming from the area below the keyboard in the lower left part, it's an acer aspire 5570-2067. it makes noise for a while, then...


Def sounds like the fan , from where you say the sound is coming from . normally the fan should be able to be cleaned the panned holding the fan in the left hand corner . clean the fan with compressed air , or a paint brush . if this fails then you need a new fan .

My laptop is making a loud noise


Hi again.
It sounds to me that the PC is overheating, get a can of compressed air and give short blasts through the air vents and the CPU fan (located underneath the laptop) once your happy that all the dust has been blown out restart the PC and it should be quieter from then on.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

GE SidexSide PSS26SGPASS Makes Humming Noise


GE refrigs have a variable speed evaporator fan motor that is controlled by a computer board on the back of the refrig. now the noise you are hearing is most likely the fan motor ramping up and down in speed (some of my customers say it sounds like a ghost). if its a continuous ramping up and down then the speed cotroller on the board is bad and must be replaced. if its just an occasional sound then thats normal and nothing to worry over.

Btw the reason the noise stops when the door opens is because the fan shuts off when you open the door.

I have a GSL25JFPH BS refrigerator by GE. It made the whirring sound, a repairman came out and told me that the fan motor needed replacing, price of $277. I sent him away, and after a few minutes on the internet, saw on this site that a new circuitboard (part# WR55X10656) should fix it. I found it on ebay for $83, and it took about fifteen minutes to install. No more whirring!!
