Usually loud fan noise in computers means that the fan you have got is too fast for you computer or too slow for your computer. go back to the place you got your fan from and ask them to check its compatibility with your computer.
otherwise try cleaning the fan or removing it and making the screws a little bit looser. might jusdt be rubbing

My desktop computer will display anything when turned on, and the fan and hardrive both make a loud constant noise.


Maybe you need a larger power supply depending on if you might have added more hardware such as a graphics card, or an extra monitor to your system. This sometimes results in an inefficient supply of power, making your fan to your power supply work harder, thus making noise.

Will dried thermal paste make the fan run loud on a dell 4700?... when i power on, fan makes loud noise, black screen and wont boot and the power light led is amber (no blinking).. i changed the fan, tried...


You may try to remove the fan, clean it up. Also try to remove the processor heat sink (clean the thermal paste), reseat the processor, put a little thermal paste, that assemble it back. Before you do this, ground your self first(the easier way, hold any metal).


If this can't help,check the capacitor at your MoBo and if you found any unusual look like, it mean you need a new MoBo.

My emachine t1090 is making extremely loud whineing noises( like my bathroom fan when it is dirty). I took the casing off of the machine and cleaned it with compressed air, alos took casing off of the fan...


you have a ball bearing fan, after awhile, the fans ball bearing move around, thats were you are hearing the whining noises. All you have to do is replace the fan with the high piched sound.

Hi, everyone!!!1 my pro 320 get noising .....what happening///


Is it a clicking noise? Hissing noise? or maybe a grinding noise? A pc can cause many different noises. A clicking noise generally means the hard drive is failing. You'd want to back up your data immediately and get a new drive. Hissing can be a bad fan or CD/DVD drive that needs to be replaced. Grinding noises can also be caused by fan bearings going out. You would need to find out which fan it is, and replace that fan.

The fan of dell gx280 producing a loud sound, how I fix it ?


Sometimes something is stuck in the grill and the blades keep touching it, other times the bearings have worn down and the fan or entire power supply needs replacing.  I used to hit my PCs noisy fan with the palm of my hand and the loud noise stopped!

Hello I have a Dell Dimension 3100 desktop. After


Bad Fan... either the CPU Fan or the Power Supply Fan or the Case Fan. If the PC is older than 4 years it is probably the Power Supply.

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.

Computer noise


More likely one of the fans, but could be the hard drive. Open the case and listen. Fan on power supply, fan on processor, or hard drive are the most likely sources of the noise. Processor fans and power supplies are both cheap and easy to replace. Hard drive is a bit more expensive and you must back it up (which you already regularly do, right?) if you want to keep your data.

Computer making strange noise


This is not a problem most people experience this. Its just your fan making noise monstly because it is touching some wire inside. You don't need to worry about this.
