On these models, they have a primary and secondary cooling system. The left fan is the secondary, and will only turn on if the machine reaches a certain preset temperature. I really don't think that it's something to get concerned with, but if you are concerned, you can take the fan out, clean and inspect it, and make sure the connection is seated properly. If you do take it out, check to make sure that there isn't a hair wound in it. I've had many machines come through my shop that a hair had stopped the fan.

Because of the very high CPU Usage, the right side fan will run more then the left Fan. Left side fan is for the Power supply. For this exhaust problem, use the laptop cooling pad while using the laptop which will solve your problem.

The fans on my Sony PCG-K33 are loud and there is a lot of heat coming from under the laptop and out the vent on the left side of the computer. The problemdid not exist until did a complete uninsall and...

Fans are usually noisy due to a build up of dust that's collected on the fan blades.
The best way to clean them is to get a can of compressed air and give short blasts through the air vents, also turn the laptop upside down and give a couple of blasts the CPU fan grill.
Alternatively you can get a clean, stiff paintbrush to clean the fan blades and blow through the air vents to remove any dust.
The laptop won't get as hot or noisy if you clean the air vents and CPU fan blades regularly.

Strong noise notebook, CPU gets hot 75-80C

The fan may be faulty, it may have stopped or spinning slow.
Check the fan and clean dust/lint off the fan blades and heatsink fins. Spin the fan blades with your finger to see if it spins freely.
If necessary replace the fan.

PC won't run: Fan Error

This is a self test that is checking the fan and finding that it is in error. You might have the fan damaged or else just stuck with dust inside and therefore to protect from over heating the laptop gives you this error.

Please check if the fan actually works when you switch on.

Fan problems

There will be a port on the side or bottom of the machine for air to get to the fan. You will be able to see or hear the fan run thorough this port. Start the machine and listen for the fan, you should be able to hear the fan clearly, when running. If the fan is working properly it will turn on and off in regular intervals to cool the machine.

T40 2373 ibm fan error

One of three things; 1- when the fan codes on some IBM's, the code locks in the bios, there is a download the has to be ran in order to clear the code and the machine to run properly. Check IBM's support site to see if this is the case for your machine 2- If the machine overheated in the process of the fan going out, then the processor may have been damaged, causing the problem and 3- if there was a malfunction with the motherboard which initially caused the fan to stop working, a new fan won't work either. Test the old fan by hooking power up to it, it is power direct and has two leads positive and negative, when power is applied it will run or not. If it does run then the problem is with the motherboard. Try these and get back to me.
