Loud noise from fans

Question: Loud noise from fans

Hello, My notebook has, as of recently become extremely loud when in games (even lesser demanding games such as Call of Duty World at War, making a noice comparable to a vaccum cleaner), and making noticable noise when on the desktop or on the internet (a shaking noise of sort). I have factory reset the PC, with no effect, before that updating the BIOS, also having no effect. Any suggestions on fixing this issue are valued! Thank you, Jacob.

Answer:Fans noise really loud

Which fan?

You need to open the case and find out which one.

What case do you have?

Something in my pc is extremely loud. Even with the case open i can't tell what it is. Does anyone have any ideas to check what the problem is?

Answer:One of the fans in my pc is way too loud. How can i tell which one it is?

Unplug all case fans. Leave only CPU, PSU, and Video fan going. If noise stops, it is a case fan. If not, Remove video card. If noise stops, it is the video card fan. If not take the PSU out of it's tray, and place it on another surface, while still connected to devices. Should be easy then to distinct the noise between the remaining two fans.

Hey guys, I got a question, recently, I brought my comp to gets its motherboard replaced, anyways, before I did that, the fans on the computer would be pretty quiet, but when they replaced it, the are going full blast. Here are the temps of the case(26 degrees celecius) and the CPU(37 degrees celsius). this is driving me insane

Answer:WHY ARE MY FANS SO Loud

Well, perhaps your system was overheating before, and the fans were kicking in to keep it cool. 26 degrees for the case is extremely cool, is it noisy now?

Question: Loud Fans

I am having a very ANNOYING time with my computer fans because of the fact that they are very loud, making a dull, blowing, turbine-like noise. I have a CoolerMaster Praetorian case with a 92mm Logisys fan on the side where the vent would be. Nothing is wrong with the fans,(I don't think so), they are just loud, so loud that I have to put the volume up very high on my computer to hear what is going on in games, for example. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make my computer MUCH more quieter?
-By the way, if this would have an affect on this situation, I have recently put a new 700W PSU and a 300W Auxiliary PSU in because the two previous ARROW 650W PSU both blew out,(one put on a firework show)

Fans:

-120mm CoolerMaster(stock) fan in front

-92mm Logisys fan on the side

-2x, 90mm CoolerMaster(stock) in the back

-Intel CPU fan

Specifications:

-Intel Core 2 Duo E6700

-Nvidia 8800GTX

-ASUS P5N32-SLI DE Deluxe Motherboard

-160GB WD, 300GB WD

-2GB RAM

-700W FSP PSU, 300W FSP Auxiliary PSU

-Logitech Z-5500 505W


-One more thing, since I installed my new PSU's, I have noticed a significant drop,(50%) in my FPS. Before my new PSU's,(when I had my 650W ARROW PSU) my FPS in F.E.A.R. was mostly over 100FPS, and now it is mostly 50FPS. I know this isn't that big of a problem, but with a $600 graphics card I better be getting the best performance possible.

hello look at my system specs my problem is lately my gups have been getting really noisy (like i can really hear it even if playing a game or video ) surely 6 fans are enough to cool my gups down without the fans having to go crazy loud to cool it down? anyone have any ideas becouse the only soultion i have come up with is taking the side off my case to cool them down but when i put the side panel on it just heats back up within 1 min

Answer:sli gup fans (loud)

I would suggest some water cooling for the CPU, with all you have going on, the air is heating up high enough to kick the sensors. Speedfan could help with the fan speeds some, but the overall goal is cooling the CPU when it is under load...and the PSU is probably creating a lot of heat running the two GPU's.

Question: Loud PC Fans

Here is my situation and I hope I can describe it clearly- if not, just ask for more info.

I have a Dell Insprion 530s Stupid me, a while back, while cleaning out the dust in my system, put the CPU in the wrong way, and damaged the pins on the motherboard. Totally Trashed it.

So, I ordered a new mobo from a company via eBay. (Forgot thier name) Great, it works like a charm. But, my system reads it as a Vostro 200. The Rep told me that this is the same mobo for the Insprion 530s. I noticed that my case fans with the new Mobo are very loud.

So after doing some research online, I found out that my BIOS is out of date. People have said that the Vostro BIOS apparently runs loud fans

So basically I have a Vostro 200 Mobo inside my Insprion 530s system.

The Vostro BIOS is 1.0.16, Dell says that the Insprion 530s BIOS is 1.0.18. Dell says that Vostro 200 BIOS i have installed is the latest version. I want to change my BIOS from the Vostro to the Insprion 530s version. My system wont let me install the Inpsrion 530s BIOs on my Vostro 200 Mobo.

Any help would be great.

Answer:Loud PC Fans

You can't install a different BIOS. If you corrupt the BIOS on a Dell the ONLY option is to replace the motherboard.
There is no BIOS corruption recovery.

The Dell listed BIOS for the 200 is 1.3.0. You can download it here: http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/...ro-220/drivers
Follow the installation instructions EXACTLY.

The Vostro line was sold by Dell as "entry level" business machines. Thus the fans could be running faster because it is a business machine and designed for continuous operation. The Vostro models could have had quieter case fans installed.

If the BIOS update doesn't help the fan noise about the best you can do is replace the fans with "quiet" type fans. There are several brands sold as "quiet" fans.

Question: Very loud Fans.

I have a zebronics casing.(and a assembled PC)
the problem is that upon starting the fans are very loud like chopper is in air but after sometime it goes back to its silent operation(not so silent).
I checked BIOS and found an option for fans and put it to ultraquite.but did'nt made any diff.

My casing has 3 fans connected to the HDD power cord(side mounted 2 in, 1 out).
One on CPU one small one on raphic card and one on Power supply.

While working also the fans sometimes shoot up but that is usually on bluemoons.
nothing is in the way of fans I checked.

Answer:Very loud Fans.

If the fasn are plugged into the motherboard, the BIOS is probably doing it's job.

Check your CPU usage in the task manager. See if you have a virus that's using your CPU

You MAY want to do a virus scan anyway, but a lot of systems start off with the fans blazing then they slow down after a few minutes.

Question: Fans Really Loud

The other day I noticed my fans were getting really loud, not just during bootup or games but continuously loud all the time. This has never happened before. I opened my case and they seem to not be blocked and spinning fine. Should I buy new fans or what can I do.

Answer:Fans Really Loud

well i am guessing you are american. given you are in the northern hemisphere and seasons are reversed from what i have i would also guess that it is summer . naturally fans will be louder in summer. but if you think it is a serious problem and your temperatures seem abnormally high you probably should go ahead and replace them.

Answer:Fans still loud after gaming

when you game the cpu and the hd and the memory all get very hot and it takes a while for them to cool down when you put into sleep that basically shuts everything down and cools it off faster.i would suggest using one of those cooling pads with the fan built in that will help get one with the extra large fan .

Question: No Boot, Loud Fans

Summary: My PC is choking on my graphics card. Loud fans and no booting. It was fine for almost 2 years with one, then I got a replacement one on RMA and it freaked, and now I have another from RMA and it's doing more or less the same thing.

In detail:

It all starts a few months ago (I’ll try not to ramble too much!) when I had an overheating issue so I sent the card in for RMA replacement. I got a prompt replacement from BFG. Then I started to get this odd issue. It was intermittent at first - sometimes I’d get graphics distortion on the screen and an odd clicking noise inside the case and would have to reboot, but eventually it started to happen more constantly.

A friend said it was probably the card, so I RMAed *again* and got my current card. This one did the graphics distortion thing the first time I powered it, but then worked fine for a few weeks (go figure). Then all of a sudden the graphics distortion happened again (no clicking in the case this time), I rebooted and got loud fans and nothing on screen. But then I would try again a couple more times and it would boot, but then distort again. The space between booting and the problem slowly got more contracted (always following the pattern: distortion, reboot, loud fans. Then about 2 failed boots with loud fans then it would boot okay, then distort, etc etc), until it got to the point where I couldn’t ever boot, I just got the loud fans and nothing on screen. They were literally about 3-4x louder ... Read more

Answer:No Boot, Loud Fans

Have you tried with just 1 stick of RAM by chance? Have you cleared CMOS? Try those things as well and see if you boot up or not.

My PC's case fans and CPU fan are ridiculously loud. I've put up with the noise for nearly five years now, and am about to buy a case that uses quiet 90mm fans, but I heard that using o-rings between the fan and the case can quiet the noise. I'm not much of a handyman, so I have no idea where to buy these. Has anyone tried this, or does anyone have different advice?

I have a ASUS N550JV that's a little over a year old.  Just today I realized that the fans were running extremely loud for no reason.  The only time they get this loud is when I am playing games.  Any advice would be helpful.  Thanks.

Answer:Fans running loud all of the sudden

Extra heat from intense graphics processing and general data crunching while game playing causes your CPU and/or GPU temperatures to rise. Your fans speed up to help cool down the hot components and make more noise.

Hi all, hope someone can help me out of a pickle.

I have an ageing XPS Dimension Gen 3 that's been running smoothing for nearly six years with a bit of TLC here and there.

However, the other day I removed the processor air flow shroud and disconnected the two processor fan connections to blow some dust out. Upon reinstalling it, all the fans cooling the PCI Card, Power Supply as well as the Processor fans are blowing incredibly loud — like a leaf blower?
The desktop has only booted XP a couple of times but has since stopped.
The power light remains a steady amber colour and none of the Diagnostic Lights at the rear of the desktop are lit up.
I've ensured all the PCI cards/Memory Cards/Graphics cards are fitted correctly incase I knocked them.

Any ideas?

Thanks
 

Answer:Solved: LOUD fans and won't boot

did you remove the CPU fan at all ?
if so there is a usually thermal grease/compond or a thermal pad between the CPU and the FAN - this ensure the heat is removed from the CPU to the FAN heatsink and blown away

if you removed the fan , then you would need to clean the old grease off and replace with new grease/compound

IF this is the case
I would not switch on again until that issue has been rectified

Hi I've bought the HP Spectre 13-v018ca a few months ago. Upon reading the reviews for this product, I found that some of the critics reviewing this laptop have stated that the fans were annoying at times. Once I bought the laptop, it became a really apparent issue. The fans would spin at high speeds under low cpu usage. Usually they would spin when using Chrome or using the laptop with cpu usage higher than 30% for a sustained amount of time. I've read other forums regarding the HP Spectre x360 but not the HP Spectre 13 so I wanted to know if other people with the HP Spectre 13 also had the same issue. I expect a lot from this because this is a business laptop at a high, high, high price. I hope that HP can acknowledge this issue and try to, at least, release a software update through HP Support Assistant.

I got this laptop a little more than a year ago and the fans worked fine (aside from the occasional overheating). Yesterday, it was working normal. I tried to turn it on today and suddenly the fans were extremely loud and working fast. My laptop was very hot and my computer shut off. When I turned it back on, it said it overheated. Every time I turned it on, it would suddenly shut off after a few minutes. I have it on currently, but I am doing NOTHING on it, and the fans are still working like crazy. I don't know what to do at this point...I've tried everything. Is it even possible to replace the fans on this laptop? I don't even know if that would help. I'm really not experienced with this kind of stuff.

I have an issue with my new PC. It delivers a great performance all around, and I can play games with ultra graphic settings without my PC having any problems at all. However, even when I'm just browsing the internet, the fans of my cabinet spin really loud.
During rare times the fans will actually quiet down for a bit and be on a noise level I find comfortable. I'd like to have that constantly (at least when I'm not playing games and just use the PC for browsing things).
My cabinet is a Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 5 and motherboard ASUS B150M-PLUS, Socket-1151 .
Is there any kind of software or settings that I can use to tell my PC to stop spinning its fans ALL the time?
Would really appreciate the help.

I've been very happy with my Yoga 260 20FD except for the fan - on my unit, the fan is very "bursty", and very loud when it does turn on. The instant CPU temps hit ~60C, even if only briefly, the fan will kick in loudly at full blast for a few seconds. The fan promptly shuts down completely, only to resume loudly the next time I load a complex web page or open a program. Seems like Lenovo has very very aggressive fan policy on the Yoga 260 - has anyone else experienced this as well? I'm on bios 1.34, with the latest Intel ME firmware, Lenovo Power Optimized power plan, etc (as a side note, Lenovo Companion and System Update have frequently been missing driver updates that are posted to the Y260 support page for the last few weeks... never had this problem with my old X220T).

I have a desktop that has been turning itself off completely intermittently for no apparent reason. It isn't running anything intensive that would cause it to overheat, but it shuts itself life like an overheated unit would.

I ran some scans a couple of days ago, and have been watching it, and I notice that the fan will sometimes start running very loudly for no reason. The computer won't even be in use and it will still get absurdly loud.

Malwarebytes didn't show anything, but I'm attaching all logs anyway, of course, in hopes that someone can help.

It might also be worth noting that the owner of the desktop had several user accounts compromised just around the time this began to happen. I'm not sure if this is the result of a download they may have made in the past.

Thanks for the help.

Hi there,  My very new Lenovo Yoga 710 (15" IKB) laptop/two-in-one has been fantastic so far except in one regard. Whenever I play a game, the fan gets quite loud and the temperature shoots up. I'm not one hundred percent sure if this happened in the first few days but I have come to notice it far more recently. When playing a pretty standard game, such as World of Warcraft, the temp will shoot up to somewhere around 65 degrees celsius (sometimes up to 70) with the bottom getting quite hot, and the fans will become quite loud. Even a very low requirement game, like FIFA 15 (which is obviously 2 years old now), can cause the temp to reach about 60 degrees and the fans to get loud, and when downloading a driver from Nvidia I noticed that the temperature had again risen, this time to 52 degrees with the fans spinning loudly again. I had earlier had a display issue that I fixed by downloading display drivers from Lenovo's website.

Just received my T440p and the build quality is a bit dodgy - it has quite sharp badly finished plastic to the edges. More annoying however is the fan which is very noisy - it seems to be more vibration of the bottom panel than the fan itself - has anyone else had similar issues?

Answer:T440p poor build quality and very loud fans

When I received my 440p, the fan was also noisy and produced vibrations. I called the warrenty provider for replacement and the fan was replaced without complications. Now the fan is rather silent. Of course I hear the fan if the system is under load but I basically donot hear the fan durring office applications.

I have a HP Compaq Elite 8300 USDT/USFF pc- the reeeealy small one. I have it running 24/7 as a media server, and since heat kills, I wanted to upgrade the cooling a little bit. Since the form factor is so small, and a replacement/larger case is out of the question (as well as liquid cooling for now), I purchased the Noctua Low-Profile NH-L9I heatsink and fan.

While I was inside the PC, I thought it would be a good idea to remove the smaller heatsink with the Z-clip and replace its thermal paste. I didn't realize this was not a regular paste setup, but it's actually glued on. I believe this heatsink is for the chipset/northbridge (correct me if I'm wrong?) but I did the best I could and applied paste and clipped it back on. It moved a little, but seemed like it would be okay.

Moving on to the cooler, the 8300 USDT has a passive cooler mounted to the processor and a small PWM fan in front and back of the case for cooling. I had to modify the case slightly to accomodate the new setup, which included hammering down the pieces of the back/bottom of the case that the OEM cooler mounted to, effectively removing my ability to go back to stock without figuring out how to re-mount the old cooler.

Anyway I get the cooler mounted, and use a PWM fan cable splitter to wire in the new fan with the front fan. I get everything all zip-tied up and perfect, and plug the beast back in. Immediately I notice that my monitor isn't doing anything (LCD tv connected by a Dis... Read more

Guys I'm having some serious sound problem with some 2950 Cisco switches that I have in my CCNA lab these switches sound like a jet I've gone in and made sure the fans are clean and I even replaced one they still are too loud. So I have a few options I can run them without a fan which I really don't want to do but I want to look at two other options.

I cannot find out why these fans are on 100%, so loud, and why I'm unable to change this!!

Then it wouldn't boot past the BIOS screen. Now the monitor doesn't even respond but the fans spin really fast and constantly until I manually turn it off. Needless to say, I'm gutted.

Answer:Computer fans making loud whirring noises ?

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

About a year ago, a technician changed a Bios setting so that the computer would not be too loud. Last week, I was trying to identify a shut down error and reset the bios to default. The error was found, not to be a bios setting but a failing Power supply, which has been replaced by another technician. It is the same power supply I had - Antec 430. The computer is now very loud again.

I have an Asus A7N8XE-Deluxe board. I enabled Q-Fan Control . I left it at the default setting of 15/16 and the speed up/down response time as 4sec/8sec but this has not made a difference.

Please do you have any suggestions?

Thanks!!

Hi, hope you can help me. I saw some similar posts about the fans but in my case the fans go very loud randomly and go to complete silence every 5-10 minutes with 1% - 3% CPU usage. For instance just simply browsing, not watching any videos or anything. Uninstalling Lenovo power managment utility didn't help, updating BIOS didn't help either. The room temperature is 19 degrees. The laptop is 2 weeks old and has been doing that from the very begining. Any other suggestions please?

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

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.

I have a HP Compaq Elite 8300 USDT pc- the reeeealy small one. I have it running 24/7 as a media server, and I wanted to upgrade the cooling a little bit. Since the form factor is so small, and a replacement/larger case is out of the question (as well as liquid cooling for now), I purchased the Noctua Low-Profile NH-L9I heatsink and fan.

While I was inside the PC, I thought it would be a good idea to remove the smaller heatsink with the Z-clip and replace its thermal paste. I didn't realize this was not a regular paste setup, but it's actually glued on. I believe this heatsink is for the chipset/northbridge (correct me if I'm wrong?) but I did the best I could and applied paste and clipped it back on. It moved a little, but seemed like it would be okay.

Moving on to the cooler, the 8300 USDT has a passive cooler mounted to the processor and a small PWM fan in front and back of the case for cooling. I had to modify the case slightly to accomodate the new setup, which included hammering down the pieces of the back/bottom of the case that the OEM cooler mounted to, effectively removing my ability to go back to stock without figuring out how to re-mount the old cooler.

Anyway I get the cooler mounted, and use a PWM fan cable splitter to wire in the new fan with the front fan. I get everything all zip-tied up and perfect, and plug the beast back in. Immediately I notice that my monitor isn't doing anything (LCD tv connected by a DisplayPort-to-HDMI converter... Read more

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

Question: Realtek loud noise

Hello,

I have Realtek Microphone in Recording settings of sound and Realtek Digital Output in Playback.

I did not make any updates for my Windows 10 64-bit for last few weeks or changes in settings, and this problem stats when I start my computer today.

I tried to use Skype, but it turned out that my microphone stopped working, my voice is not heard. 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.

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).

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..

Hi,I have lenovo 3000 y410 laptop.The fan of the laptop makes loud noise due to sudden increase and decrease of its speed.The noise suddenly crescendoes... as if my laptop sings an opera everyday.Only thing being this opera concerns me about my laptop's health.I have recorded the sound. If anyone wants I can send it.There is no way I can attach it here. Someone please tell me the solution of it. Btw, is there anybody else who is facing the same problem with the laptop's fan? 

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.

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

My laptop - just over a year old now - began making this noise. I of course assume it is the fan or hard drive. I'm glad I did backup for recovery and drivers...but what steps should I take? Any suggestions are appreciated.

There is a loud and griding kind of noise while i use my laptop.It is so annoying and it keeps on vibrating the laptop too.My laptop model number is HP ENVY M6 1215TX .I have been using it for the past 3 years now and there has been no heating issues or fan issues.Please tell me what to do.Should i get the fan  replaced or laptop serviced?And around what will it cost me if i go for the replacement of the fan? (My laptop is not covered in warranty)

Answer:Loud fan noise and vibration

Well the problem is unquestionably the fan. The replacement process is shown on p. 73 of the Manual here: Manual Where do you live (country)? I ask because I am not familiar with what service technicians charge for this kind of work in every country. In the US I can tell you the part would be maybe $15-20US and the labor would be $80-150. If you have some skills at following a manual and maybe a video it is something you can do yourself.  http://www.ebay.in/itm/New-CPU-Cooling-Fan-for-HP-Pavilion-M6-M6T-M6-1000-m6-1002xx-m6-1035dx-m6-/11... We are happy to help as much as possible.

win xp, asus p5q-e onboard soundcard

When some sound is playing (game, video) every 30 seconds there is some "static" noise. It sounds as looking up different stations on a old radio.

I don't know if this is hardware or software problem. No new hardware is added. I dont have any other loudspeakers to test.

A while ago I had this problem as well but somehow it disappeared. the noise is more often when surfing on internet or only navigating in windows.

I just got my new XPS 2710 a week ago. All things working perfectly (Windows 8 not too exciting)  except the fan noise. I have no application consuming CPU, memory is low and no network activity still I hear the fan running a bit higher than normal.
Does anyone has seen this or has recommendation before I call support and debug.

thanks

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
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Question: Loud Beeping Noise

I installed a 200gig hd in my comp, with my 80 gig thats already in there. Everything was good, windows loaded fine, but today my computer light started blinking on and off and my comp made a loud continuous beeping sound. Whats up? Its completely random, and it usually stops making that sound after 10-20 sec.
 

Answer:Loud Beeping Noise

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.

I am running windows 7 on a Dell desktop computer. It has started making a very annoying and loud squealing noise. I have cleaned the dust from inside thinking it may be overheating. I also wiggled the boards to make sure all were seated good. Does anyone have an idea what could be causing this and how to stop it? Thanks

Try disconnecting any case fans one at a time and see if the noise stops.......if it does then you have a fan that is on it's way out......

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 ?

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.

I hear this off and on. I did not think it came from within my computer at first so thought little of it. But one day my neighbour came over and whilst we were talking we both heard this noise it was like a door banging shut furiously. I thought somebody upstairs or wherever didnt care for the rest of us but my visitor said it was from my computer. But how come, where from, I couldnt for the life of me think what was causing it. Has anyone else experienced such a thing? Liza

Answer:Loud noise from ? computer

Computers normally whine or clatter, sometimes alarms sound for overheat.Load bangs are usually terminal straight away. CD breaking in drive, PSU dying or motherboard blowing.The only thing I can think of is possibly hard drive heads catching on platters.SO I suggest you back up anything important immeditely.

Hello, So this started happening when I was moving the laptop one day (when it was on) the fan suddenly got very loud and the whole laptop was vibrating, it sounded like the fan was touching something while it spins which made the vibrating and loud noise, it sounds exactly like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkCLubSukzI I fixed it by restarting the laptop (sleep works too, seems like whatever makes the fan stop) but now it randomly happens, the normal noise of the fan has changed and it sometimes gets that loud again as showed in the video and then I have to restart to fix it. I've tried to open the laptop but some screws were too hard and stuck lol so I gave up. and I've cleaned the vents from dust.

I bought the laptop a week ago and im loving it but the fan is really loud.So as soon as i start ANY type of game, the fan starts immediately and the noise level is intense so i downloaded db measurer on my phone, made my room complete quiet, started up lol client, turn on db measurer on my phone, place it on the left of the laptop and i read numbers flashing bw 55~65. This was the same for every other gamesi read a bunch of reviews on 510p beforr buying it but I never read anything about fan noise being loud. My measurement probably isnt accurate as it cud be because it was measured on a phone, but i think its still too loud. Is something wrong with my machine?

Answer:y510p fan noise too loud

The laptop gets very hot so the fans have to run fast. I can't hear your laptop but I have a feeling you are hearing the standard noise form these fans.

hi sunstreaker,
 
Thank You for using Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I'm Thinking about stuck key or button on your system.
Can you try running Passmark Keyboard Test a key or button will show red on the image if it is being pressed or held down.
 
Try doing a BIOS Reset as well
    Keep on hitting F2 when you turn it on,
       Once inside BIOS, hit f9 to load default and f10 to save and exit
 
Best Regards

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

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?

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?

I was using my PC and all of the sudden it started making a loud almost rattling sound. I shut it off, waited a little and restarted it. It went away for a few minutes and then came back. I opened up the case to see if I could find where the noise was coming from and it seemed to be coming from one of the fans. I unplugged the power to that fan and now it is quiet again.

Do fans go bad? Is there a fix for this or do I just need to get a new fan?

Question: Realtek loud noise

Hello,

I have Realtek Microphone in Recording settings of sound and Realtek Digital Output in Playback.

I did not make any updates for my Windows 10 64-bit for last few weeks or changes in settings, and this problem stats when I start my computer today.

I tried to use Skype, but it turned out that my microphone stopped working, my voice is not heard. 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.

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.

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.
