Loud Fan My acer aspire 5002 laptop fan is really loud and annoying. I was wondering if there was anyway to quieten it down, also it stays on almost all the time even if i'm not doing very much. I thought maybe it needs to be lubricated but i'm not sure exactly how to remove it.

Hi, I am afraid that your problem is common to this laptop brand/model. A reason is that it uses AMD Turion64 with reported nominal operating temp at ~50.0?c. At ~55.0? the CPU fan will kick in until the temperature stabilizes which unfortunately takes a long time due to the nature of the enclosed spaces in a laptop. Also lubrication will help improve the fan but will not solve the noise nor the turning on quickly, other than it's a complicated and tedious job opening the unit. Other users of the same model reports positive results by lowering the supply voltage of your process. The process is called "undervolting" and best described in Mr. Dan Zhang's guide at and tried at Hope that this give you an idea and pls post back how things turn up or if you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

I have an Acer Aspire 5735Z. The cooling fan works intermittently. I am not sure if I need a new fan, or the problem could be more serious. Thanks for any help. [email protected]

sometimes the fan races if you like, sounds loud, then when its cooled the comp down, it stops or goes slowly, until comp gets hot again. hope this helps, make sure you always rest the computer on a hard solid surface never a soft 1 like beds or cushions ect.

My Acer Aspire One AOA150 's fan is very loud and warm

I'd suggest that you carefully pull the base of your Acer apart - taking out the screw, and keeping track of them. See if your fan is dirty - I have an Acer as well, and if it's dirty, it get loud, and HOT!

A quick cleaning does wonders!

depending on the size of the fan you can probably remove it and take it to your local computer store and have them get you a better one of the same size.
