We received 2 brand new E7240s directly from Dell, one for myself and one for my colleague. As soon as I turned it on to build it for my colleague, I noticed the machine was overheating and the fan was making a noise. Dell suggested a BIOS upgrade which didn't change anything. They then changed the heatsink, again this changed nothing and since then they changed the motherboard. My colleague has gone on holiday so I don't know if her issue has been resolved, however, my laptop from day one does not overheat (as obviously as it did for my colleague) BUT THE FAN TURNS ALL THE TIME. So much so that I think the person in the upstairs bedroom is using her hairdryer. Dell replaced the heatsink and the motherboard yesterday, I have done the same BIOS upgrade and the problem is even worse. As soon as I switch the thing on, the ventilator turns all the time making a loud noise. My previous model was the E6500 and I wasn't bothered by any noises it made.
The 7240 makes so much noise that I want to throw it out of the window  , seriously I am going to switch back to my 5 year old e6500 which is now very slow, I just can't take the constant hair dryer noise from the fan! I am waiting for Dell to get back to me but I don't see what else they can do.

Answer:e7240 CONSTANT LOUD NOISE FROM FAN / VENTILATOR TURNING ALL THE TIME

I just purchased a new Dell Latitude E7240 laptop with Windows 7, and had the same problem with overheating and the fan running noisily all the time. I've just fixed it on my laptop, it may not work for everyone but just in case I'm entering it here.
The clue for me was that the issue only happened at home, not at work.

Using the Task Manager, I found that a process 'svchost.exe' was always running at 25% CPU, i.e. taking 100% of one of the 4 processor cores. For this you need to view everyone's processes, and hence you need a local admin account if it asks for permission.
With right-click on that process => 'Go to services', you can study which services are hosted by that instance of svchost.
For each of those few services, try stopping one at a time (if it lets you) and see if the CPU usage goes down. For me a clue was one service got stuck on 'Stopping' but never stopped.
The misbehaving service for me was the 'HomeGroup Provider'. That was why the issue only happened at home and not at work. The laptop had spotted my HomeGroup on my home network, but had not been able to join it. Possibly some issue with IPv6 that I could not enable on my desktop.
In the Services tab in Task Manager, get properties on the that service, and set Startup Type to Disabled.
Restart the laptop, to ensure the service is stopped.

This did the trick for me, and now the CPU stays below 5% when idle. This is not solving the issue that the fan is noisy... Read more

My new X1 is great for crunching through data but the power consumption seems very high at idle or when I am doing simple tasks. I have BIOS version 1.27 (released 21/Oct/2011) and Power Manager 3.62 I have used Power Manager to set Power Use to "High energy savings". However, the power used is always >20W and usually around 25-27W. This results in excessive heat (so the fan goes at 4500rpm all the time) and the battery is lasting less than 1 hour if I give a Powerpoint presentation (no movies). Also, the Power Manager shows GPU at 100% all of the time - is this normal or might it be a cause of increased power requirements? I have tried all the solutions to fan noise in this thread:http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/X-Series-ThinkPad-Laptops/x1-fan-Noise/td-p/469001 I have tried setting all power settings to maximise battery life in Windows 7 and then also in Power Manager but to no avail. Please help! What are the ormal power requirements and GPU% at idle?

Answer:X1 - high power consumption (>20W), GPU 100% all the time, short battery life, loud fan-noise

Check Task Manager to see if there's anything running that is using CPU.As far as I know, there aren't any tools for determining which program is using the integrated GPU. You may try ending services one at a time.

Hi everybody, I would like some help!

I recently bought a new fan to help with cooling as the summer approaches. My new fan replaces my old chassis fan but is plugged in slightly differently as it is plugged into the 3 pin mother board connector (the old one was plugged into the molex and is now positioned as an intake fan at the front).

My problem is that since I've installed the new fan my computer is actually louder than before, Everest tells me that the revs for the new fan are 5114 rpm as I type this so it's clearly working too hard. I think it's working too hard because my processor fan is only idling by comparison at 1705 rpm. Which temperature does the chassis fan use to control it's speed and why has my CPU fan suddenly become lazy since I installed the new fan? Is there anything I can do to make the CPU fan work harder and take some of the burden off of the chassis fan?

Many thanks for any help!

Hi,

I recently upgraded the ram in my pc from 1.5gb to 2.5gb as it seemed to be getting pretty slow. I was expecting a pretty big jump in performance but it doesn't seem to have happened.

The pc can sometimes be faster than it was and sometimes it really drags. There is also an intermittent loud noise which i believe is coming from the fan and when this happens the pc is slow.

I took out the fan and cleaned all the dust from it but this noise still starts every couple of minutes and the pc becomes slow.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:Loud Noise from PC. Don't think it is the HDD

Two things to consider...
The amount of memory doesn't have much to do with speed unless some process can specifically use that extra memory. You can to more things well, but not necessarily more rapidly.

You system will utilize all memory at the speed of the slowest module. If you have some memory that is value ram or other inexpensive ram, the timings could be significantly different than the best brands and models.

Your system only uses what memory it needs, not what you want it to use. As long as the RAM meets the requirements of the motherboard, it will not protest.

If you want some programs to run at optimum performance levels, all memory must be identical. It is wise to buy matched sets of RAM from the same manufacturer at the same time to get the ultimate performance. Top memory is already sold in matched sets in the same plastic wrap. Otherwise, you have to look at the timings and other information posted on the package or the label.

Question: A Very Loud Noise

I was working in the computer area one night. Of four computers, I was using two, one had been shut down for the night, and the last had been left on, but was unused.Suddenly the room was filled with a very loud noise. We are talking quite loud, almost like a fire alarm - uncomfortably loud to the ears. My first thought was an alarm on the UPS. I checked it, and it was fine. Then I thought maybe a fan bearing gone bad on one of the computers. I shut down the one not being used. Nothing. So then in spite of losing work, I felt it urgent enough to immediately shut down the two computers I was using. Nothing. So my next thought was fans in the room. Shut them down - nothing. Then I thought maybe the lights. Nothing. So my final thing was to unplug the computer that was already shut off - Bingo!What a surprise. I wasn't sure if the noise was from the computer or from the surge protector it was plugged into, so I ran an extension cord across the room. It ran fine about 3 days and then the noise came again, not quite as loud this time, but still loud.So I am thinking power supply or motherboard. The frequency and texture of the sound is the same as the squeal you get from the computer when you disconnect the power and the electricity drains from the system, except that that sound is mildly soft, but it gives you an idea of the nature of the sound. So I'm thinking maybe the motherboard is alarming me about something, but why so loud? And why continuous and won't go of... Read more

Google SpeedFan.

It allows you to vary the speed of your internal fans. Mess around with it til you get a stable, low temperature and desired noise output.

Or, you could just buy new fans.

Hey everyone! I just got a new u310 a few days ago. It has Windows 8 installed. I started working on the notebook, hoping the fan noise would eventually stop but it is really really noisy. I installed a software, which would indicate a temperature of 36°C, so usually the fan shouldn't be working on such a high level in the first place. I have read a couple of posts about this, but no one seems to have found a solution for tge U310 specifically. Does anyone have the same problem? I thought maybe there is a BIOS update which would help...? Thanks a lot, Sonni 

Answer:U310 loud fan noise

hi Sonni_87,
 
The loud fan noise that you're hearing, is it a:1. A wind noise?
     - If it is, this is normal as faster fan speed causes wind noise on the vents (this usually happens if you're getting unusual heat and the fan spins at a higher rate to cool down the CPU/GPU.
 
2. A grinding / rattling noise?
     - this indicates that the fan is struggling - It's possible that it's hitting something, is dirty or is starting to wear out and needs to be replaced. 
 
Also, the BIOS can configure on how the fan spins. It's possible that the configuration is set to make the fan spin at a higher rate even on less load on the CPU/GPU (like in this article). In this case, you may need to contact lenovo report this issue

Answer:Fan makes loud noise.

try to clean your air vent by blowing it with compressed air, and see whether you dislodge any dusts, it is probably dirty now and needs to be cleaned........... also install HWmonitor (a free download off the net) and check your CPU temp....... if got warranty, let the Lenovo service people fix it up for you, if not then it is fairly easy DIY job.

First guess would be that your system is not getting enough love from your power supply.

Go here: http://www.extreme.outervision.com/ and calculate how much your system needs, then open up your case and look at the sticker on your PSU to see how many watts it is putting out.

There's this loud noise coming from my CPU. I opened it up and cleaned removed most of the dust, and it still sounds the same. In the start up screen there was the message "diskette drive 0 seek failure", I disabled the floppy drive, the message doesn't appear anymore, and its still sounds the same. The sound mostly comes from the Floppy Drive area. I'm really worried, anything I can do to solve this?

Answer:[SOLVED] Loud Noise from CPU

Is there a floppy disk in the drive? It sounds like the floppy drive is dead (or dying) which is not all that unusual. Open the case cover and disconnect the power cable from the back of the floppy drive. Test. If the noise persists then it could be a fan failing or some other problem. Try the above first and get back to us.

Hi, when I bought my PC two years ago, it was silent, it barely made any noise. However, I later made a huge mistake. I opened the case to clean the inside of the computer with an air compressor, but while I was cleaning the fans I wasn't holding them so the air compressor made them spin faster than normal. Following that, every time I boot my PC now, it makes a loud noise and also the PC makes a lot of noise in general. A lot more than when I bought it, to a point where sleeping next to it when it is turned on is a hard thing to do. Now, I'm wondering if that mistake is the cause of the noise. When I look at the fans, they don't seem to be damaged at all. I have 3 fans: The case fan, the graphics card fan and the power supply fan. My PC is cleaned regularly so I know it's not dust or anything that's causing the problem.

Here's some interesting info: It only makes noise when it's booting after the computer has been turned off for more than 30 minutes. If it's less than that, it doesn't make the loud noise. I have no idea why. Also, about 3% of the time, the desktop doesn't get to fully load because the computer freezes. It's a problem that started at the same time the noise started. If it is indeed one or multiple fans that are broken, how can I know which one(s) is?

I made a video of when I'm booting the computer so you can hear and see what is happening.

Answer:My PC is making a loud noise

You didn't tell us the brand and model of the computer.
Using an air compressor is very bad, because you risk the damage of static electricity that is generated in amazing amounts. Next time, us canned air designed for use in cleaning computers.
Replace the CPU fan, us buy a new CPU cleaning kit, and any fans that blow air to the outside, and replace the power supply with one of decent quality. Clean the dust of fan blades and computer walls with a soft rag soaked in denatured alcohol. Get some nylon or plastic ties to hold the cables together and away from any fans. Tie down SATA and EIDE cables so they cannot block air or rattle. Make sure all air flow passages are free and allow full movement of cooling air. All these will likely return your computer to normal. You could also buy "silent" cooling fans for very little money which would reduce your noise even more..

I am having SL400 Thinkpad. for the past few days it is acting weirdly. My hard disk is making lot of noise. Initially I thought it is coming from CPU fan. But when I observed ThinkVantage active protection - It is displaying auto repetitive shocks.  This sound is just too loud. I cannot hear anything if I switch on my laptop.  Now, my laptop performance become very slow even though I am having Core2Duo with 4GB RAM. My laptop is one yr old and it's warranty is over in April. OS is Vista.  Appreciate if anyone has suggestions to fix this problem. 

Answer:SL400 - HDD Loud Noise

if it is making lot of loud noise, then it could be a sign of bearing is worn out on the hdd. Try to do a hdd health check through the BIOS menu, and see whether you have any errors on the hdd.
 
I think Lenovo allows you to extend warranty provided that the day of renewal is within 30 days of the warranty expiration. You should call them up and see if that is possible.
 
Aftermarket hdd is pretty cheap too, a 500 gig one is around 80 or 90 USD on newegg.com. If you buy the WD and Seagate brand, there is a manufacturer provided copy of the Acronis Trueimage where you can transfer the entire hdd image from the old hdd to the new hdd.

I was just taking apart my desktop and cleaning it up/blowing off the dust using a pressurized air gun (not too pressurized), and now that I have the nuts and screws back on, I plugged it in and the loudest noise began to come from the cooling fan.

It sounds as if theres something hitting the fan as it turns, this only happens on start-up for about 5 seconds as the fan blows at full speed. I did a visual inspection and there was nothing close to the fan, all wires were tucked away. What should I do?

Answer:Loud noise coming from fan

It's possible that when you blew compressed air through the cooling fan, some grit/debris inadvertently got into the fan motor pinion. It should eventually work itself out, but if it's stubborn then try blowing more compressed air. You might also want to check if there's a lubrication port somewhere on it (some of these fans are completely maintenance free, but some can be lubricated).

Answer:Loud whirring noise

Helllo Eknirb,

From looking at your top image from Task Manager, it looks like you had a spike in CPU usage there for a bit. That spike may have cause your built-in motherboard fan controllers to rev up the CPU fan to keep it cooler with the quick increase (spike) usage.

Monitor your CPU temps to make sure that they are not high or spiking on you as well to be safe. 45C as your showing in the last screenshot is ok. If they are high all the time, the CPU fan or heatsink may be loose, or you may need to clean and replace the thermal past on the CPU heatsink.

If the usage is spiking on you randomly, then you can look under the CPU bar in Resource Monitor to help see what is using so much of the CPU.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello, I've been searching around for a possible solution to this problem, but didn't find anything major dusts trapped within the fan housing.  The noise is especially pronounced when I plug in the AC, not so much when I'm using the battery.  I downloaded fanspeed to monitor my pc's temperature, and found it to exceed 180 degrees F when running memory intensive programs, sometimes staying at around 200 degree F, in short I can feel alot of heat being emittied through the keypad. The noise is annoying and I believe the fan to be the main culprit, however I read somewhere that an AC malfunction is a possibility.  The laptop is at factory settings, although I did uninstall lenovo power management to fix an exisiting problem before.  Does anyone have inputs?

Then I tried to record voice with sound forge and same here, it should be noted that I do not get just an empty track with zero sound, record just does not happen. It is different things. But most horrible thing I got now is a very loud noise which almost hurts your ears. Noise occurs if I'm trying record something, answer to the skype, and also I got some low clicking sound of very loud short sound each time I'm trying to on video or audio, or switch it with timeline.

I've updated all drivers in Device Manager:

Microphone (Realtek High Definition Audio)
Realtek Digital Output (Realtek High Definition Audio)
Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio)
Stereo Mix (Realtek High Definition Audio)

and it says the best driver software for your device is already installed.

So I have no idea what to do. Can't get if it is system problem or something wrong with hardware.

Answer:Realtek loud noise

Do you have "digital" speakers or just the standard computer speakers? I suspect just standard speakers (using the Green speaker connection) so "Speakers" should be set as the default playback device. In the recording settings, either the microphone or better yet "Stereo Mix" should be set as default Recording device.

Get the settings properly set and then see what happens.

Question: Loud buzzing noise

Hello!

I have a year-old Lenovo G500 laptop, and recently it started doing this loud, buzzing sound quite often, even when there's only one program opened. I checked CPU and disk usage the first few times it happened, but they're fairly low. I'm not really tech-savvy, so I'm not exactly sure if the sound is coming from a fan or is it HDD. I do know for sure that the fan isn't dusty, when I brought it to a tech shop they told me there's no need for a cleaning. I'm sorry if the question is stupid, but the frequent loud sound makes me worried and I can't be sure if it's just laptop's normal sound or not. Any help appreciated.

Answer:Loud buzzing noise

Can be coming from a fan, be first thought even if not dirty can be going bad, something is loose and rubbing on it, also can be power supply which also have fans and or the hard drive. Know which side hard drive is on on laptop. This is not coming from the speakers ? How is it when it is plugged in, does this only happen on a battery ?

I built my own pc about a year ago. Lately whenever I boot the machine up it makes this weird buzzing, clicking noise. It generally stops after it gets fully booted up. Then it is quiet, but sometimes it will start making a buzzing noise after it has been on for awhile (I leave it on all the time). At first I was worried it might be the hard drive, but I have not had any real trouble with the machine. I figured if it were the hard drive, it probably would have died by now or I'd have some serious issues. So, what do you think? It would have to be the power supply or one of the internal fans right? Should I replace my 400 watt power supply?

Thanks!

Answer:PC making loud noise, could it be the PS or something else??

Its probably a fan. I would take it out and take a look at it and put it back. You first have to find out wich fan it is.

I have had similar problems. I used to hit the fan a few times wih a screwdriver and it fixed the problem. I am not recommending it though. It was my PSU fan. Maybe u should clean it. Be careful.

Hi! I purchased Yoga 900 (part number 90UE002VUS) - 16GB Memory with 512 GB SSD. I hear the fan running loud and continuously even after closing all the applications. Is this normal? I thought SSD's are supposed to be ultra quiet, but this unit has an i7 processor, so maybe it's the processor that's forcing the fan to stay on. However the only application that I've set to run in the background is Sophos Anti-Virus. But even with that app turned off, I hear the fan come on very frequently and stay on with a loud noise for extended periods of time.I wonder whether I have a defective unit and need to get it replaced. If others have experienced this problem and found a solution, I'd appreciate your advice. Thanks

Well a lenovo, used for a year and a buzzing loud crackling fan noise problem... Aren't we surprised!!!Useless to ask for a BIOS update for a essential product, they didn't care to give one for a thinkpad. Here's the problem though...The laptop makes a buzzing fan noise. That is not a fan running at full speed. This noise is more like a buzz of a large fluoroscent tube. And will stop, well, if you tap it, knock it, or use your acquired accupressure massage tricks for the revered Lenovo products. Problem is it will reappear after a few minutes or seconds depending on your luck. Lenovo don't seem to provide any off shelf fans at least in India for the product. Even the cpu temp seem to be rising. It has touched 70C for i53210m.(room temp at 26C, load 100% for arnd 30 sec, avg load 6%)My question is with the temperature on the higher side, and the fact that I cannot feel much air from the fan, how do I know the gurgarating buzzing loud fan is actually working or needs to be changed?

So I recently got a new computer about 1 month ago and the microphone didn't seem to work. When I got it to work there was this really loud annoying sound that had beeps and echos in it, kind of hard to explain. I have turned off the option of "Listen to this device" in the audio control panel and haven't found any further fixed for this issue I wondered if anyone could help me :) The headset I use is the Logitech G230.
Ty in advance.

Answer:Loud noise when using microphone.

You have done what was needed by turning off "listen to this device".
If this is not turned off the sound coming from the speakers is picked up by the microphone and then goes round and round usually referred to as feedback.

Answer:New XPS One 2710 loud fan noise

Hi pkmaster,
The fan could be running at a higher speed due to any Windows background services accessing the processor resources. However, I suggest you to run the hardware diagnostics to check if all the components are working properly and particularly on the Processor and the fan by following the steps provided in the following link:http://dell.to/OUGnqT

I as far as I can remember have never had this loud noose before, but lately for a month or so? Ish? I've been having a series of loud noises from my pc, so loud that I can hear it even when playing BF3 with a headset! And so violent at times I can feel the keyboard vibrating lightly, and if I touch the PC it is vibrating decently softly.

I may be wrong but it seems it started after BF3, and thought it might be the fan or my PC really struggling with the game, but it does it even when I'm not playing.

It's sometimes just a softer sound, then will accelerate to a "burr, burr, burr" then go full auto into "brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr" occasionally very loud.

So here's the REALLY scary part: while playing Skyrim a very weird thing happened: it stopped. The sound of the game looped into a "drrrrrrrrrr" and I had to hold down the off button. Nothing else did anything. I rebooted and tested it again...sure enough: 30 seconds in I had to do the same thing. I gave it one last chance and decided I would try to discern if it did anything else notable, but the third time it was fine. I left the game open a while to see if it'd do it again, but it didn't.

So I'm scared. WTH is wrong with my PC? BTW it is kinda low on disc space...if that matters. Also the disc options are gone when I click on documents under the c\ drive and stuff...then again I had installed virtual drives...I dunno

Answer:Very loud and scary noise from my PC.

It's a windows 7 64bit 3.2 ghz i5? Or quad core. GT230 graphics card. And I "it stopped" I meant my pc. Not the noise. The monitor just started going as if it were preparing for screen saver mode.

Hey, sorry if this is not in the right section since I could not find any other better section to post this in.

Okay, my computer recently started to sound really loud, so I turned it off before I went to sleep. The next morning I woke up to turn my computer on, but nothing would show on my monitor and the computer was still extremely loud, louder then it has ever been. I decided to play around with it and I replaced the monitor plug (not sure of the correct name) to a different opening in my computer. It solved the problem and my monitor started finally working, but still my computer was louder then ever. I ended up scanning my whole computer and defraging. The scan went fine same with the defrag. The noise was still the same. When I tried out a game, it was really choppy and I was only getting about 10 fps on average.

I would really appreciate some light on this problem. Thanks.

Question: Loud Revving Noise

I am running Windows XP on a Dell computer that is about 3 years old. Lately, and more frequently, the computer will all of a sudden make noises like a car engine revving up. Sometimes it just lasts a few minutes and sometimes it just gets louder and louder and lasts a long time. I have DSL and thus my computer is always on. I have virus protection and nothing comes up on the scan. When this happens, I normally have nothing going on, except perhaps one Internet Explorer Window open.

Is this a sound of doom and gloom to come? What could be causing this? Should I be concerned?

Thanks,
 

Answer:Loud Revving Noise

#1. Isolate the cause.
- Open the case and look at the fans particularily. Many systems today can control the speed of the fan and as the system heats up the fans spin faster. Older fans may complain and you'll hear a noise not unlike airplanes flying overhead.

If it's a regular 80 cm or 120 cm fan then a replacement is quick and easy. If it's a chipset or CPU fan, then replacement will require first determining what you need and then where you can find it. Most computer specialists will carry a variety of fans and parts, but make sure to double check your requirements before purchasing. Make sure if you replace your CPU fan/cooler that it will FIT.

Good luck,

Answer:Loud clicking noise on start up

Hi .

Could be various things.

First thing to check...would be the boot order in the BIOS. Make sure that the hard drive is the 1st boot option.

The loud clicking...is normally considered to be an indication of hard drive problems (if the noise emanates from the hard drive. Soooo...open the case, boot the system...and see if you can do a visual/audial verification of just where the noise might be originating.

Fans (or any other moving parts) can cause noises, as well as case vibration...it only takes a minute to hone in on the origin.

While you have the case open, take a look and see who the manufacturer is and write down the model number of your hard drive. It should be capable of easily being momentarily removed so that you can see this data.

It's a loud fan-like noise - seems to be coming from the back left corner (by the power button). Want to find out what part is malfunctioning, any help would be appreciated. Youtube below shows it happening. https://youtu.be/4vvSe8jhhdI

I have a Packard Bell EasyNote TJ68 with 4.00GB memory. It's a fairly old computer but I've had this problem since I got the computer and I've finally snapped. When I plug my laptop in to charge, it makes a very loud noise unless I have the speakers on mute. This wouldn't be a problem but my laptop power cable is slightly loosened so if I'm sitting with it on my lap and I'm listening to music, it's always make a horrible noise every time the cable dis or re-connects when I move. I can't for the life of me figure out how to disable this noise. I've gone into sound and power options, and switched everything I saw to mute and still nothing. Please help!

Answer:Loud noise when I plug my laptop in

Probably a screaming capicator...MBoard replacement would be the only way out...unless you pay a shop to disassemble it and replace the bad cap which more than likely would be more than a new board.

Hello. Problem: Today morning turned comp on 1st time, LOUD fan(?) noise, got all the way to opening Interent Explorer then just shut down. 2nd try, loud noise, got to Windows startup screen, then just shut down.Background: --For a few weeks now any online streaming video has been going super choppy.--Yesterday opened up computer, and found massive amounts of dust. Cleaned up power supply fan and cpu fan.  After that comp worked a lot more quietly than it had in the past few years (?). I thought the comp might be slightly faster too, is that even possible from dust cleaning?--Comp seemed to always have memory usage spikes up to 70-100%, just with internet Explorer on.--On side of comp it saysHP Pavilion a6228x pcAMD Athlon 64 x2Dual core procesor 5200+---Inside comp from what I remember4g installed mem2.2g "usable"?? I dont know...?3g being used or working or something like that I think. sorry.Okay, that is all the stuff I know, can anybody help me please? I tried to read up on this and people say cpu fan or heat sink or actual cpu damage?Please help.

i have a dell desktop.. i restarted my computer the other day and when it would not restart..only stay on the logging off logo..i maually shut it off. now when i try to start it.. it makes a real loud humming noise like a fan..and all i get is a yellow light on the power button and it does not start.. i checked the fan that is in the front.. over the cpu i think.. it is turning but was covered with dust on the solid screen in front of it.. any suggestions? it is a dell xps 420.  the sound sounds like it is coming from the fwd fan or near it.. thanks!!!

Answer:loud noise and no green light

You need to do some serious housekeeping inside that case...A can of compressed air is good for this...along with a soft small paint brush for the stubborn dust bunnies...Also when blasting the fan areas use a Q_Tio to hold the fan blades in place so they don't get damaged...As always remember to remove all power sources and take anti-static precautions...PS: After completing this there may be a fan replacement involved...As long as you take it with you you should be able to find a suitable replacement at any PC shop...

I purchased my laptop back in August 2016 its been fine until recently. Last week I started up my pc and the laptop began to make a loud wirring noise everytime it starts up. It also happens if it has been hibernating for a while. The noise does eventually stop. it lasts about 10-15 seconds after start up its a very worrying sound and I can not tell what is wrong.

What can make this noise besides hard drives and fans? I have stopped the fans one at a time and the noise continues. One strange thing, when I blew air into the power supply fan the noise stopped for hours. When the noise returned I stopped the power supply fan, but the noise continued. I opened the power supply and blew it out. I also unplugged my hard drives and booted up, the noise continues. I the made sure everything was tightened down good. Is it possible for the power supply itself to make this noise, or the cpu, or anything else? Thanks for any ideas.

I have a Dell Dimensions desktop that I am fixing for a friend. Once the computer has been on for a few minutes it starts to make a loud noise like the computer is an aeroplane taking off. It seems like it maybe coming from the power supply fan, but I am not sure. I might try and put another power supply in the machine to see if it still does it. Any other ideas as to what it could be. Thanks.

Hi there,  I just received my new HP Envy X360 Notebook on January 3, 2017. I am a student, and will only be using it for school. I love the look, feel of it, and how quickly it runs. What I am not loving is the sound of the fan. It is a very loud clicking noise. Since i use it in class, it is very distracting during lectures. I do not know if i am the only one going through this problem, which is why i am taking this step to post this message.  My semester has started, and i rely heavily on my laptop. I cannot afford to have it stop working.  Any suggestions on what i should do?  It is updated, and considering i just got it i feel i should not be experiencing this. HElP!

I purchased the lenovo ideapad u530 about 6 months ago. Recently, there has been a loud whirring/buzzing noise coming from the laptop (possibly the fan?). It is most noticeable at the bottom near the vents. There seems to be no correlation between what I do on the laptop and the noise. Any ideas as to what the problem may be? Any solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:U530 loud whirring noise

Hi Sanchezz,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
 
I?m sorry to hear that a loud noise is generated in your U530 Laptop near the air vents. This issue can be checked by placing the Laptop on a flat surface while using it and also this might have occurred by the Dust/Foreign particles accumulating on FAN and Air vents. I would suggest you to perform ?Dust Removal? feature using LEM (Lenovo Energy Management) installed in the computer. Please let me know the findings.
 
Hope to hear back soon
 
Best Regards
Shiva Kumar

hello there!, seems i have problem with my lenovo y50, its creating wierd noise i dont know where is it coming from. here you can hear it from this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJ5BCoSSOGE  i already have the lastest version of bios so anyone have any idea where's this noise coming from or what is the problem? thanks!

Answer:Lenovo Y50 creating loud noise

Basically there is only two moving parts in your computer.  The hard drive or the cooling fan.  With either device that noise is not normal and would indicate to me that the device is falling.  I would recommend you contact Lenovo Support for assistance in correcting the problem.

Posted a thread about my HD failing 2 days ago and how to back it up.

I got it all backed up successfully, and with the 500GB in there.
Weird thing though, theres this continues, pretty loud, buzzing/clamping noise.

About 6 months ago, when i purchased this 500GB from NCIX, i tried using it and it made the same noise. Then i went and exchanged it for another new one, same thing. So its not the HD itself i dont think.

Could it be the power? Iv got a 430W in there, with a 500GB HD, Dual Core 3800+ 2GB, and a Radeon EAX1800XL in there.

I didnt hear this noise with my 160GB, n the 500 in there is pretty **** loud and clampy, non-stop.

Is it the power? Is it risky? Should i stop using the computer? Or no big deal?

Thanks.

Answer:Loud buzzing noise from Computer

I know what a buzzing sound is, but what is a clamping/clampy sound?
I'm really not being sarcastic here, I'm just trying to better understand the sound so I can help you.

Could it possibly be a random wire too close to a fan? Have you tried opening up the case while it's running to better isolate where the sound is coming from exactly?

Answer:Lenovo U410 loud fan noise

I also have a Lenovo U410 and experienced the same problem with a noisy fan some time ago. For me, it appeared after I updated my system to Win 8.1 but with some delay. So, I'm not sure whether it is a BIOS / firmware problem or a problem with Lenovo's power manager software (new updated version is not working better concerning the noise). So, I found a solution of my own to regulate the fan speed manually. I'm using NotebookFanControl freeware by Stefan Hirschmann which is published here:https://skydrive.live.com/?cid=6c34bd33ac55ce36&id=6C34BD33AC55CE36%21390&authkey=!APNc-4e4i7-KxOw#c... With some testing and the software RWEverything, I got the parts of the EC which is responsible for fan speed + control. I created a config file for NotebookFanControl which should be able to control the fan speed now:Config Lenovo U410 Fan control The config file might also work for U310 and similar models, but not sure. Feedback? For me, it works great. You can optimize the fan speed values if you want. Enjoy

For some reason, my computer frequently produces a loud fan noise when I am using it. For the majority of the time, it is silent. However, there are often times when I don't even have many webpages open but it grows louder. There are two levels of loud (the second level is so loud that it can draw attention from people sitting next to me).
This is only a 2 month old laptop, so I am unsure why it gets loud. Also, I have 12gb RAM, which adds to my confusion.
Any suggestions or reasoning? Thanks!
