I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Howdy,At work I recently received a Z800 Workstation. The fans in this computer are running very loud and we have not been able to quiet it down.
 
I have updated the BIOS to the latest (03.57 Rev. A) and set to defaults. This didn't seem to change anything.
 
I have also installed the SpeedFan utility and tried to use that to slow down the fans. It does not seem to be able to impact the fan speeds at all.
 
In the BIOS, I see this information regarding temps and fan speeds.
 
Temps* CPU 0 = 32C* CPU1 = 32C* Ambient = 0C* Memory = 36C
 
Fan speeds showed this:* CPU0 = 1109 rpm* CPU1 = 0* Memory = 785 rpm* Chipset = 0* Chassis = 4150rpm* PCI = 0
 
The sound coming from the workstation is not like a fan is broken or going out. It is just simply like the fans are working extra hard keeping things cool. It sounds like I'm sitting in a data center.
 
Is there anyway to have the fans come on an off as needed or slow down? Is there some HP utility that I'm not seeing?
 
Any ideas would be appreciated.
 
ThanksCW

Answer:Z800 fan noise seems extra loud

in BIOS, under Power - Thermal - Fan Idle Mode - what is it set to?If to default (minimum) - then something is wrong with the system. Perhaps the ambient sensor is broken. Pretty sure it shouldn't be zero.

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 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.

What happened to me one is that the CPU fan's mounting came loose and was not stable. Check to see if everything looks secure on it.

I never had this problem before until recently I noticed that my fan was making this loud buzzing noise. It was bearable at first. I thought that the fan might be dusty inside because I haven't cleaned it ever since I bought it. Last week, I tried to open the laptop so I can check why it is making that loud noise. I saw that the fan was dirty. I tried cleaning it. When I turned on my laptop, it was still making that loud buzzing noise. So I just ignored it. After a week, It suddenly got louder. It didn't sound normal anymore. I tried restarting the laptop but it still makes that noise. Its annoying. I took a video so you can hear what my fan is making.  It just keeps doing like this even if my laptop is just on stanby, like I'm not doing anything with it. This is what it sounds like when I did the Dust Removal tool on Energy Management.   Since I kept using the Dust Removal tool.. Now its making this weird noise, like the fan is getting stuck on something. I don't know what to do anymore. Its been 2 years since I bought this laptop so I don't have anymore warranty and I never had problems with my laptop except for today. I have never dropped it so I don't know why this is happening to my laptop. Please help me.

Answer:Lenovo Y510P fan making really loud noise.

Hi there, Xbelleh -
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
This video would leave me to believe that a piece of paper or other debris shifted inside and is now coming in contact with the fan blades.
 
When you use the dedusting cycle the debris is temporarily being blown out of the way of the blades.  What I would do is use a can of compressed air and blow out the fan assembly from both directions and see what is blown out.  Compress air is available at any office supply store, electronics store or big box discount store.  When using the compressed air use short bursts as an extended burst may damage the fan's bearings from over revving. 
 
Also, when using the laptop take note of its position.  If the fan is quiet on a flat surface, but is noisy when sitting at an angle like on your lap.  That might be a good indication that the fan bearings are failing. 
 
Worst case scenario is you need a fan replacement.  The fan is something that the owner can replace if you are comfortable working inside it.
 
As a do-it-yourself project it can be fixed in an afternoon. At this point I would try the compress air and we'll go from there.  
 
Update us how it goes.

Hello

Today I was playing my games, as usual until my laptop starting making very, very loud buzzing noises. I instantly turned off the laptop. Left if for a bit and turned back on. Again, extremely loud noises. I'm scared to turn it back on now. Im thinking it's the fan as that is where the noise is coming from but I can't be sure.

Any advice on what to do? Any one else had this problem?

Answer:My Satellite C855 is making very loud noise

On this virtual way we cannot say for sure what the problem is but I can imagine that cooling fan is responsible for this.
From the first moment when you switch your notebook ON cooling fan is active so I would like to know if you can hear this noise from the first second after start-up.

Is there some other kind of vibration?

Of course it is also interesting to know if your notebook has valid warranty or not. If yes I strongly recommend you to contact nearest Toshiba service provider, explain the situation and ask for help.
They can order and exchange cooling vent.

I have a home built computer, (not built by myself) and the power supply makes loud noise almost like the fan is hitting against something. I have checked the fan, and it is clear of all contact, and this is not constant. There are times where it will be too loud to even sleep with from across the house, and times where it runs quiet as a mouse.

When it was making the loud noise, I was moving the computer to get a good look at it, and when it hit into the corner of my desk, the impact stopped the noise. I know it is coming from the power supply fan, but there is nothing for it to be hitting so I don't know whats causing it.

OK, so for a few months now, my one year old computer's power supply box has been making a very loud noise after I start up my computer. It lasts anywhere from 3 to 10 minutes. And lately the sound comes up even when my computer has been on for any amount of time after I turned it on.I recorded the sound:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9-s7mUXfH8It's pretty loud if you're there in the same room, or even outside the room.Now, I opened up my computer because I naturally thought that it was dusty, which it was. So with my computer off, switched to 0 and unplugged, I dusted it inside and out. I made sure to hold each fan still (one on the mother board, one on my graphics card and the one in the power supply) while I cleaned the dust using a pressurized can of air. (FALCON Dust-Off Professional)I did open up my power supply and dusted everything in there to, very carefully. I then made sure that nothing was hitting the fan in the power supply while it spun, there were no obstructions, everything seemed that it'd be running smoothly. I then put everything back together and made sure everything was in place. Turned on my computer and it still made that noise. So I'm still not sure why it makes that noise. I checked to see if my computer was overheating, but it wasn't hot at all, and it's definitely in a ventilated place, all sides of it (vents) have nothing in their path. So I'm still not sure why that sound it happening or what is making it. ... Read more

It seems like some sort of fan problem because usually I can feel the heated air coming out from the side but right now I don't feel it so I guess the heat cannot escape because the fan wouldn't blow the heat out!

Hi Girom, It sounds like the one of the laptops fans have gone , Buying a likely replacement is not so difficult if you go the Ebay route search out your model in "laptop spares and accessories" ,Installing is not too hard to do either .

So my laptops fan started making this really loud rattling noise. It makes me very self-conscience about me when I'm in public, so I just don't bother bringing it along. But I really need my laptop with me. The sound usually comes out at random. I've searched the HP Part Picker Store and under the fan section it just lists the fan pad, which isn't what I need. I do believe that I need to completely replace the fan at this point (I've tried fixing the problem from cleaning the fan out from dust to checking it for any damage, but can't find what the problem is). Would anyone know where I can find a replacement fan for my laptop and would I need to buy it with the whole heat sink and thermal compound? I'm pretty experience in computer repair so I have some confidence that I can do it, plus my warranty expired in 2014 so I won't be voiding that anyways. If it helps any, the product # is A3E83AV.

I bought the HP Pavilion x360 m3 Convertible 2 in 1 laptop online from Amazon September of last year. Everything was fine until around November where it was making this soft, but noticeable mechanical sound when I turned it on. I didn't pay much attention to it because it was not obnoxiously loud at the time, and I make sure that the fans are breathing and not collecting dust. However, now it appears that the fans are like jittering and making this whining noise when I'm on. I don't run a lot of programs at once on there nor do I leave it running for a long time. The noise is really bothering me because I can't even bring it to class with me because of how loud it sounds!  I tried everything, updating the BIOS, doing system checks and diagnosis through the HP support assistance, I always keep it clean and I use compressed gas to blow the dust that I could find in or around the laptop as thoroughly as possible. Still nothing. I have no clue what to do so I hope someone can help me, please. Thanks!

Hello all,

I've been having this problem for a long time now (2 years) and no matter what I do I can't get rid of it.

My PC will freeze and make very loud buzzing noises a few times a day,even when left idle in the middle of the night it will sometimes wake me up with the buzzing sounds coming out of my headphones.

I'm clueless at this point as for what to do,I replaced my Motherboard,my network adatper, I disabled my sound card,played around with the BIOS settings and nothing works.

There is one way which seems to consistently recreate the freeze & buzzing sound and thats only when I run low graphic games and let me explain:

I can play heavy 3D games with demanding graphics and the PC wont freeze (Actually don't think it ever froze while I was playing a 3D game) however It will freeze after less than 10 minutes if I play a low demanding game like Stardew Valley,League of legends or even when the PC is just Idle or while listening to music on youtube.

I ran Memtest86 and Prime95 and didn't find any errors and the event viewer errors seem to just say its Error 41 which is an unexpected shutdown.

I would really be greatful if someone can help me solve this annoying problem for once and for all,I've been living with it for so long,it makes me paranoid when I'm gonna hear it while listening to music (the sound gets you jumped every time..)

Hey all,

First timer here with very little computer experience. I've been browsing the forum via google, and I noticed a bunch of people had the same problems as I do right now. However, I have no idea if I have the same problem as them, and I would be grateful if someone walked me through this. I have a DELL latitude D620 running XP SP3. I use McAfee Total protection 2012.

Basically, in the past month or so, my CPU has been gradually increasing to the point where every couple of seconds it becomes 100%. The computer is still usable, but it overheats signficantly and I want to catch the problem (if there is one) before it becomes worse. The biggest contributers to this problem are services.exe and about 8 different svchost.exe running at once (sometimes ALOT more than that). These typically take up at least 50% of the CPU at any given time.

Answer:XP making continuous loud whirling noise when starting system, no boot up

Sounds to me that maybe its a bios problem . When booting the default place that windows looks to get its startup info from is the HDD. If that was changed, say to cd drive then it would look there. No info there would mean its stuck in limbo. Try searching the site for bios or boot up problems. This situation is far from new and ,hopefully its not your machine, you will find the right solution for you.

Answer:Loud Noise at boot comming from GPU and no display

Hi mate.

Do you perhaps have an onboard graphic card? If so, please remove the one which goes into PCIe slot and plug the cable to an integrated one.
Then try to start PC and see if you'll get screen immediately.

That one GPU in PCI slot (the one that you cleaned), does it contain an active cooler (fan) or a passive one?
Based on your post, I am assuming that it contains an active cooler, so in hot days it tries to cool down the GPU but unsuccessfully.

I think that your GPU is soon gonna die.
But maybe you could buy one xtra cooler which you can position to blow cold air directly to GPU.
maybe it will cool it more, so you won't experience no picture on display or loud fan rotation when its hot.

i started noticing this noise coming from the back of my monitor ( which is a hp 17" crt). its a fairly old monitor, nothing special tho. But the noise wont be there all the time, it just comes every now and then and then sometimes will go off. its kind of like a high pitched buzzing noise, but it isnt extremely loud, just gets kinda annoying. anyone have any idea what it could be?

Answer:Monitor making noise

Well, it could be harmless but then again it could be dangerous.

p4, 2.4ghz. 1024mb ddr. asus p4pe mobo, radeon 9800xt. ive just installed my new radeon 9800xt and everything was going well through windows. but when i launched my far cry game, my monitor made a quiet high pitched screaching noise, and when i accually started playing the game it got worse. so i quit the game and it was ok as soon as my desktop came up. i installed the proper driver. and the monitor is a toshiba 17" crt. any ideas please? thanx.

Answer:my monitor is making a screaching noise.

Does the monitor have speakers on it, is it this thats causing the screeching and does this only happen with Far Cry. If it does then its probably a problem with your sound drivers, try seeing if theres an update available.

hi all,
New here and looking for some help.
I have a 22inch Gateway monitor that simply stopped working. I've tried it on two different comps and nothing.

When i simply power on the monitor I hear a "static" noise and no image appears at all.

No storms or anything.

I contacted gateway and they could not have been less helpful. Its two years old and no longer under warranty.

Can this thing be repaired or do I drop the coin on a new one? Any thoughts?
I contacted two shops today who charge to even look at the thing...

Answer:Monitor making noise/not working:

Sounds like the power unit is gone. If it's no longer under warranty I'm not sure if I would go through the trouble of getting it repaired. Could cost quite a bit to solve the problem first.

I have a ViewSonic UltraBrite A91f+ monitor. I have had it for about a year and a half. Yesterday i started making this high pitch noise, its coming from the rear of the monitor. It stops when I turn it off. If I turn my monitor off and leave it off for a while, I can turn it back on and it wont make the noise for a little bit. Is this a sign that my monitor is about to die/be messed up? I havent had it THAT long. Any help is much appreciated.

Hey all; just got given a monitor to replace a broken one. It's great, nice and big with built in speakers. However, it starts to make a high pitched noise after about twenty minutes; turning the sound down or muting it doesn't affect this. Only turning the monitor off for any length of time stops it; you can't just turn it off and then back on again without the sound returning immediately. This might sound inconsequential but it's getting right on my tits and is actually becoming rather painful. Any suggestions? Cheers!

Answer:Monitor making a high pitch noise...

That the monitor is on its way out.You could see if it happens at a diferent resoultion and or refresh rate, and see it this makes a difference.

I think it's coming from my monitoring, though I am not sure what else other than my monitor could be making that sound.

My CRT Monitor is making a not too loud(I can hear it from 7-9 feet away) quiet "thuuh" kind of sound occasionally, I think I can hear it happening once every one-two days.

It happens even when the computer/monitor is not turned on.

Anyone know what else the sound could be coming from and if it's the monitoring, what could it mean?

How do I make my 2nd monitor always display my start screen / metro screen?

Seems like on my 1st monitor, when ever i open chrome or IE, it closes the start/metro on monitor 2, and opens it there.

Answer:Making 2nd monitor always display Metro Screen?

Hello gizbug,

You can't. Whenever you open a desktop app, it will close the Start screen.

You can open the Start screen from any of your displays by clicking on the Start button after hovering on the bottom left corner of that display. When you press the Windows key, it will open the Start screen on whatever display the Start screen was last closed from.

Hope this helps,

I have a X220t that has worked pretty well for the last 4 years, but a few months after the warranty expired, it started developing a curious issue. Basically, whenever I extend my desktop to an external display, the _internal_ display becomes filled with random, moving noise. It seems to be mostly present in the green channel only.Here is an example photo: http://postimg.org/image/56vo2jolt/ Using Windows+P in order to go back to either clone or single monitor mode entirely removes all noise. Also, it seems that using DisplayPort instead of VGA or DVI, as well an higher CPU temperature,increase the "quantity" of the noise. Has anyone ever heard of this? I'm presuming it's a technical fault all right, but since it works perfectly in single monitor mode, I ponder if there may be some kind of workaround for it. Like playing with the pixel clocks.    

Answer:X220T - Internal display noise only when using external monitor

I had exactly that problem on my X220t, but luckily about a month before the warranty ran out. It wasn't unusable, but the longer the display was left 'dualled' the worse it got. Switching to single display then back to dual fixed it, but only for a few minutes, and it was also clearly deteriorating over time - the noise started earlier and got worse more quickly as time went on. Mine was better on DisplayPort than on VGA, but noisy on either. No amount of driver updating/re-installation fixed it, and it was the same at any combination of resolutions on internal or external monitor. The answer in my case was to return it to Lenovo, who diagnosed a motherboard failure and replaced the motherboard under warranty.

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

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.

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 36C, 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

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

I just got my x201 for several days. The fan's noise seems unbearable. Especially in the late night, It was running all the time, even if I didn't run anything. I ran the power setting and set the fan to reduce noise. But it doesn't seem to work.. Any other one has the same problem?

Answer:x201's fan noise is too loud

hi, i own also a x201 and it's not the fan, which makes the noise, it's the 7200 rpm harddisk!! I replaced it with a ssd, and now the x201 is very quiet :-) cheers, zep

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.

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.

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 ?

Answer:loud noise on startup

What model? Have you taken off the cover to look inside? Has it been moved recently? Sometimes a wire can get caught rubbing in one of the fan blades.Or it could be taking off.Let us know what you find.

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: 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.

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.

When the laptop is put into the sleep mode and while closing the lid, a loud noise comes from the place near the touchpad. The sound goes off when the lid is opened. It is happening since a month.
The sound is not coming from the speakers. It is coming from inside the laptop.

Answer:Loud Noise while closing lid

Hi Arun,Thanks for the response.I would suggest you to enable the audio device and uninstall the audio driver. Then restart the system and Windows would automatically try to install the sound driver. Run the Windows Audio Playback Diagnose and Repair from the below mentioned MS FIX-IT http://support.microsoft.com/mats/AudioPlayback/ You may also run the hardware diagnostics to check if there is a hardware failure. To run the diagnostics you can get the instructions from the online videos available on the following link: http://dell.to/Sm161v Once you open the above page, under the option, “All Videos” select Dell Tools & Services >> Then select Dell Support Center–PC Checkup/Offline Diagnostics Please find the screenshot below:1. Click Start, All Programs, Dell, Dell Support Center and Launch PC Checkup. 2. Click the PC Checkup button and then click Run Custom Scan. Note: If the hardware is detected but the driver is not installed, instead of Run Test, the field will read Disabled. In the given list, click to select the script or component test desired and follow the onscreen prompts to complete the diagnostic. Please reply with the findings.Thanks & Regards Vishal S #iworkfordell

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

Answer:Loud Squealing Noise

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 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,

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).

This is really troubling to me. I've had this computer for only 2 months and just yesterday, it started to suddenly make loud noises. I was trying to install VOBSUB yesterday and it installed... but the screen was frozen. I couldn't exit out of the window. SO I used task manager and got myself out of it then tried again - but happened again of course. Then all of a sudden there was this deep, loud motorlike noise coming from my computer. My old computer's fans were always loud whenever it was on but this was different.

I turned it on this morning and got the usual loud fan sound... then that deep low noise for maybe 2 minute. I'm really scared about this. What should I do?

Answer:Loud Computer Noise

First, a word of caution...
Any work that you or someone else does to the system may void your warranty- unless you bought it used. You should check with the manufacturer to see what is covered and for how long. Second, we'll need more information about the computer. Edited for spelling

Any suggestions? I have a USB broadband modem and the problem started shortly after I installed this. I only have integral sound that came with the motherboard, I don't have a soundcard.

Any help welcome!
