Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I sent my computer to gateway because it was turning off and they updated the bios now i hear the fan running


Answers :

Just a suggestion. The reason it was shutting off may have been because it was overheating. The bios update my have made the fan run more often and faster. Faster is louder. This would explain the louder fan. You can go to the Gateway website and find the downloads for your model and you should see the BIOS update that they probably used.
\015\012 Look at the updates. Most of the updated versions of the drivers and Bios Flashes show a description of what the changes were from the previous version. It may show a nice description of the update or may just give a few basics and not fully describe what the changes were but its worth a peek.
