Answer: Lenovo U410 loud fan noise

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

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

Answer:Lenovo Y50 creating loud noise

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

Hi, I got a problem with my laptop. The fan is making loud noise everytime I open a new window, a new tab, any setting window and so. I believe it is supposed to make this kind of noise when I'm stressing it with more programs running, not by simply open the files explorer... Any idea on what to do? (model is Lenovo Yoga 500-15IBD)ThanksNstant

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 500-15IBD loud fan noise

Hi Nstant,  Most probably a program or App is running at the background cause fast spinning fan to cool down CPU temp.  To figure it out, right click in your taskbar and from the opened menu click on task manager.  -From top menu click on performance tab then click on resource monitor ==> from top menu click on CPU tab and look at to the Average CPU usage and see which App or Program is using a high percentage of your CPU capacity==> right click on it and end the process.  .Regards,  **If the issue has been resolved please, mark me as solution provided to help others find the solution easily and click the Kudos.**

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.

The noise started coming about a week ago. It wasn't that loud, but I would sometimes hear a vibrating sound coming from the fan of my Lenovo G555. Sometimes it would stop. But if I ever moved it, the vibrating noise would come back. But today, the noise got really loud and it wouldn't stop this time unless I shut it down or something. Why is this? Is there any solutions to get this fixed, too?

Answer:Lenovo G555 fan making loud noise

As you are experiencing loud noise from the system.
 
To diagnose, I would suggest you to please update update the Bios of  your system from the below mentioned web link.

I put my headphones in the jack today and heard a weird background noise. When I removed them, the computer speakers were making a loud buzzing noise as well.  The buzzing noise comes and goes and disappears if I mute the computer's volume.  I cannot hear any audio on my computer now (no music, videos, noise at start up/shut down, etc.). I have tried updating the sound drivers and restarting the computer several times, but to no avail.  I have also tried to get sound with and without external speakers attached, with and without headphones in, etc. and I can only occassionally get the loud buzzing noise which is coming directly from both of the speaker vents on the bottom of the computer.  Thoughts on a solution?

I believe the sound is coming from the heatsink. Its right near the vents and its extremely loud when thecomputer is at loading temperatures. So mainly during boot up and when loading many programs. This has been like this since out of the box. Its should be such a small problem, whats the easiest and fastest way to get this fix? I have dealt with many hardware issues for cameras phones and computers, so if theres like a tuturial on opening this thing, it would be great. Thank you very much.

When I start up my laptop from cold, there's this ridiculously loud squealing, siren-like noise coming from the speakers that seems to slowly disappear right as I get to the log-in screen. It'll usually be gone after I've logged in. It's not a constant sound, but one that fluctuates. I know for a fact it comes from the speakers because I can shut off the sound with the mute button. So please do not ask me if it may be coming from a fan or HDD. I want to know what possible solutions I can try. I've had the laptop for a little more than a few years now and do game on it.

hi dharamc,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Have you tried checking this issue under the BIOS mode.
  Power ON the computer and start hitting F2.
 
If the problem is visible under BIOS, then don't mind the driver as the problem might be the GPU or the LCD screen.
  to isolate the issue further you can use an external monitor.
 
If the problem is not visible under an external monitor, then you have a problem with the GPU
 
Let us know your findings
Cheers!

Bought a brand new U410 two weeks ago. Nice computer, but I notice a clicking noise which I assume is originating from the hard drive every so often. It's very low, but noticeable. Tried a few apps to quiet the drive but none worked. Downloaded a couple of programs to test the hard drive and all is well. Do others have this clicking noise and if so can I assume it is just the hard drive with power management feature parking the heads? TIA!

Hey everyone, I've had this laptop for a few years now and I know this hasn't always been a problem. In other topics regarding this issue, it's recommended to update your BIOS and drivers and everything. I've already done that. I think it might have been some update that started this issue. My temperature readings are reasonable in GPU-z. For some reason my laptop just starts spinning the fan really loudly, even if the room is cold. I've never felt my laptop get really hot or anything. The noise is just really loud now and it's embarassing to take it out in public. It doesn't sound BROKEN, it just sounds like when you turn on an older desktop.  My warranty has expired and I've already looked inside at the fans - they didn't appear to be damaged or dusty. I cleaned them, even used the cleaning app and the problem didn't improve at all. So basically I don't know what to do. If it's not a hardware problem, what else might it be? If it is a hardware problem, I guess I should look into getting a new laptop? The thing is, I've googled around and it seems other people have had this issue too. I haven't been hard on my laptop or anything, it just stays on my desk. Thanks

Answer:Lenovo Y40-70 Fan way too loud, quiet sometimes and suddenly gets loud

Assuming that your fans are clean and both working and the vents are clear, then you may have to simply clean the old grease, and then reapply the thermal silicone grease between the heat sink and the CPU.    I have seen where over time on laptops the heat sink compound or pad dries out and loosens, and then does not transfer heat efficiently to the heat sink; thus causing the fans to work harder to keep the CPU cool.     If you do decide to replace the compound, use a good high quality one like Artic Silver etc., make sure to clean off the old crud completely, and then just apply a nice thin layer over the entire CPU......Too much is not better.... Good Luck.

Hi there everyone, apologies if this is something that's been convered already, tried searching but could find no similar problems. Purchased a U410 back in early December and aside for some problems with it randomly shutting down without warning i've been reasonably pleased with it.  The only issue i'm currently having is with a constant background noise the laptop is making. It basically sounds like either the hdd or the processor is constantly hard at work with a demanding programme, even when it's idling on the Windows 7 desktop.  I've made sure no background programs are running, demanding services are turned off, I've turned off the Aero features... nothing that I can obviously see could be causing it, yet it sounds like it's rendering RAW images in Photoshop all the time!  If anyone could give me a point in the direction of how to cure it, i'd be most grateful. 

Answer:U410 Constant HDD or Processor Noise

How much free space do you have? as virtual memory that uses your hdd for storage can go bezerk if you dont have a lot of free space, i normally turn it of if you have 8gb or more, or it could be hdd file indexing or anti-virus. You could try disabling all startup programs using msconfig, if the hdd noise stops it`s one of them, try tuning them on one at a time.  John.

Hi everybody, I would like some help!

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

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

Many thanks for any help!

Hi,

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

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

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

Any ideas?
 

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

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

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

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

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

Question: A Very Loud Noise

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

Google SpeedFan.

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

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.

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.

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'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

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.

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

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.

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

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

Answer:Loud noise coming from fan

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

Answer:Loud whirring noise

Helllo Eknirb,

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

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

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

Hope this helps,
Shawn

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.

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,

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 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.

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

Thanks!

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

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

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

Hi, 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..

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.

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

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.

Answer:Weird loud noise????

It could be a fan, when you put more pressure on your graphics card it may well decide to turn up its 'im a little bastard' fan.

They can be quiet loud. They should be torn asunder and replaced with nice Coolermaster or Zalman things.

Frosty cool and quiet.

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.

C440 all-in-one. Just faced with loud annoying fan noise when CP is high-loaded. The main reason of the high-load is seems to be - the preinstalled antivirus software!  

Answer:Loud fan noise C440

hi dim2314,
 
Thanks fro Posting!
 
Have you checked if in safemode it will do the same fan noise?
    Antivirus software will be disabled in safemode and if that's what causing it it should stop in safemode.
 
Let me know what happeneds 
Cheers!

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, 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?

Hello everyone. I own a dell inspiron 9300 and I recently read that if i typed msconfig into the run tab on my computer and then disabled some of the items on there that it would run quicker. Well I did just that and then I tryed to switch it back and I can't. Now my internet connection won't work and it makes this extremely loud beeping noise for no reason. It's always been really slow and I thought I could speed it up. I only use it for going on the internet and for fixing my pictures. If anyone has any advice I'd really appreciate it. Thanks

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

Specifications:

Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 2
Intel Celeron CPU 2.00 GHz

Answer:[SOLVED] Loud Noise from CPU

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

Recently, I upgraded my graphic card. From FX5200 to 6600GT. And I got a new Power Supply. The power suply i got was 450watt Ultra neon (which was about 40 dollars).
And my computer noise has increased enormously. Has the system noise been increased because the power supply is not of good quality?

And if i get a better power supply, will the noise level drop?

thanks

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

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.

Once in a while, my XP loads up without sound.
Most often, I do have sound.
But, when it loads with sound I get a loud banging noise - sometimes one sometimes two, then everytjhing is OK.
Would I ever be able to get it loading without the banging noise(s)?
Much obliged!
 

Answer:Loud noise, once or twice at start-up.

Obviously, there is a problem. I have no idea what the "banging noise" could be. "Banging" would seem to indicate something is loose and bouncing around in the case.

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.

To make a long story short, I've been asked to help fix a friends mom's U410 laptop which wasnt activiting Windows 8.1 properly (Was Windows 8 OOB). After struggling with the activation for a few hours, I backed up the data and decided to just run the Lenovo one key recovery. During the recovery process, the installation had failed. When I attemped to reboot, no Lenovo splash screen was loading - just a black screen (although i can hear the cooling fan start, and hear the harddrive spin up. I tried to access the boot menu thru the novo button, and nothing would load; still a black screen. After researching for a few more hours, I had found multiple threads about bios updates required to be able to access bios with windows 8, and other threads about gpus on these units booting to a second screen (which i did test, and the second monitor does indicate a signal). None of the solutions on those threads have given positive results.   Basically, I've run out of options and am looking for some suggestions. The only thing that shows up on the display at anytime is the small blue novo menu when the button is pressed (normal start up, bios setup, boot menu, system recovery - all of which just leave a black screen). Thanks.

I have a friend who has a laptop (inspiron 710m) that's been making some loud/weird/concerning noises. It's about 3 years old and has only started doing this within the past month or so. It sounds like it's coming from the fan area, and it sounds like sort of a vibrating noise, or sounds like something is rapidly hitting something else. My first thought was that it's the fan, either off-balance or dirty, but what do you guys think? She said it stops doing it if the laptop is at an angle, which kinda supports that theory.

If it was the fan, would blowing it out with compressed air solve it? She said it hasn't been cleaned ever, so I figure it couldn't hurt. Any ideas?
 

Answer:Laptop loud/strange noise =(

If the fan blades are hitting something solid, blowing it out with compressed air will likely not do anything. If the noise alters at different angles, it may be the fan's bearings going out. Often you can find replacement fans on eBay, or search online for make/model.

I bought L555-12V at MediaMarkt two days ago. The fan noise is terribly loud.
The fan turns at 70-80% with a CPU load of just 2 or 3 % when just surfing with firefox and no other open programs.

It sounds like a hair-drier. It's so loud you can't stand to be near the laptop for more than 10 minutes. This makes it impossible to work with.

I have tried everything. Uninstalled unnecessary software, altered the Windows power profiles, changed the Toshiba Power Saver settings; on ?maximum performance? the fan never turns off and on ?battery optimized? the fan is off for a minute then on at an incredibly loud 80% for a minute and so on. On/Off.

Is anyone else having these problems with fan noise?

Is this the same problem that A500 owners had with the BIOS 1.20 on their machines?


Will there be a BIOS update for the L555-12V like there was for the A500?
This cured their fan noise fault. At present there is no new BIOS posted on the support page.

If not I will have to take the laptop back for a refund. I would find that a shame as the laptop seems otherwise fine. However this machine is unusable for any length of time in it's current state.

Answer:Loud fan noise on Satellite L555-12V

> changed the Toshiba Power Saver settings; on ?maximum performance? the fan never turns off and on ?battery optimized? the fan is off for a minute then on at an incredibly loud 80% for a minute and so on. On/Off.

maximum performance means that the cooling modules would run with full power. This means that the fan will run always!

battery optimized means that the cooling fans will start to rotate only if the temperature would reach an certain level? therefore the cooling modules goes off if the temperature would decreases and would start again if the temperature level would increase?

> Will there be a BIOS update for the L555-12V like there was for the A500?
Who knows? I have checked the Toshiba European driver page and didn?t find an BIOS update for L555-12V (PSLWSE) series? I found a BIOS only for PSLW8E series?

However, I think you should wait a little bit and should check the driver page in the next time? maybe new BIOS would be available?

Hi there, firstly iam not sure if this is in the correct section of the forum. But my pc is making a loud humming noise. I havent a clue wot it is. It has done it for some time now, usually i turn on my pc here the humming noise so i would leave the pc like that for a few minutes until it warms up, turn it off and then back on again and the loud humming would stop. But now it just will not go away.

Does anyone have any ideas what it might be?

Thanks

Answer:Hard drive loud noise?

Is this almost like a rythmic repeated click? If so this is possibly what is called the click of death. which means that the hard drive is possibly dead. Do you know the manufacturer and model of the drive? If so you can go to the manufacturer web site and down load the disk diagnostic tools and test the disk.

I was sitting around when my pc suddenly started making this loud whirring sound. The noise level was oscillating, so it isn't the normal fan noise. Anyhow, I switched the pc off so I could dismantle the casing and see if there were obstructions of any sort inside the PC; some huge insect or something (is that possible?) There was nothing, so I switched the pc on with its casing off, so I could pinpoint the noise. I traced the sound back to the graphics card, a radeon 9600 powercolor, and the small little fan attached to it. NOw the problem is, well, I don't know what I should do. Is this normal? Do graphics card, after 2 months use (its 2 months old) start making loud, loud noises? Is it okay if I continue using the pc? Everything still works exactly fine; I'm still able to type this post so that's saying something. And the noise has sort of settled into a steady noise; but still abnormally loud and warbly (sometimes it gets louder then back to normal).Might also be useful to note that I leave my computer on 24 hours... I don't know if that's causing that. I put it to sleep sometimes, but at most, I forget. I'm hoping that I didn't mess my pc cause of that?Please advise. It'd be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Graphics card (loud noise)

No they don't (start making loud loud noises)If the card is 2 months old, there is probably a warranty somewhere. Contact the place you bought it. In the meantime, I'm afraid its not a good idea to continue to use it. Do you have an old graphics card that can go in there in the meanwhile?

I have a HP Pavilion 15-n020nr andfor no reason at all my laptop started making this noise. At first it was intermittent static, almost like static beeping, but then it became steady. I restarted my laptop, but it started up again once I turned it back on. I also heard it through my headphones at first but after I unplugged them and plugged them back in now it's just from the speakers again. At first it started as soon as I played any audio, and would stop about 30 seconds after I stopped playing the audio. Now it starts as soon as I start up my laptop. I tried updating my Realtek driver, and my graphics driver (amd radeon hd 8400/R3 Series) but as soon as I did my laptop wouldn't turn on at all. I had to completely reset it from the menu you get when you press esc while booting it up. While that did allow me to use my laptop again, the static noise is still there.

I would really appreciate anyone with any idea how to fix this.
