Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Humming when computer runs

\015 Can you tell me what is making my laptop hum after it has been turned on for awhile. Is there any way to make it stop?\015

Answers :

This is usually caused by fluff bunnies etc nesting inside the laptop.

\015\012The outcome from this is that quite often the laptop will overheat which in turn usually causes the fan to work harder. This can lead to failure of the laptop. You could try a can of compressed air designed for blowing out computers and see what comes out of the ventilation slots. DONT just give it little squirts, you really want the air to blow as much as you can without sticking anything inside the laptop of course !!

\015\012Some laptops are especially bad with dirt / dust build up.

Hello joyfulimages,

A fan, disk drive, or some other moving part could be causing the humming sound. Make sure all your important data is backed up just in case it may be a disk beginning to fail.
