\015 Fan blade makes huge racket when turning the computer on, and then on and off there after. how do i fix this problem?\015

Answers :

I was working on one of these the other week and basically the fan housing had warped slightly and was fouling the fan, if you remove the lower plastic cover over the fan, remove the fan (should be 2/3 screws) and there is 3 screws holding on a metal cover, remove these and remove the cover. Now put one of the screws back in, THEN replace the metal cover and remaining 2 screws and refit the fan and plastics. Worked fine afterwards.
This is most of the time due to excessive dust covered on processor heat sink try cleaning in side with pressure air by removing keyboard.

My Dell Dimension E510 is making a "whirring" noise. It whirls loudly when I turn it on, like something inside is struggling to get up to speed. The computer takes more time than usual to become operable and open programs. Then with the computer on, the "whirring" comes and goes, it is more quite, but more uneven. Sounds like it's going fast sometimes, then speeds up and back and forth. I've opened the computer and cleaned the dust out of it. That didn't help. HELP. VHS


So what could make "whirring" sounds in a computer? Motors. What has motors? Fans, Hard Disc Drives, Floppy Drives and CD/DVD ROM Drives. I can't think of anything else. It doesn't sound like a CD/DVD/Floppy drive because you would only hear the nois ... Dell Dimension E510 PC Desktop

The Gigabyte liquid cooling system's pump in my 3-year old pc from ABS is starting to make noises, there's no coolant flowing through the hoses, and the radiator fan on the outside of the chassis isn't spinning. The pump and its tank are model GH-WIU01 R and are now obsolete. Gigabyte says I should replace the pump and tank with a Galaxy 2 version. Does this sound legitimate, and does anyone have any experience changing out the pump and tank? It's awfully crowded inside that chassis!


Without the CORRECT fluid, or an additive for the lubrication of the pump in "UV Additive" water- Not From TAP or Sink- you will wear-out the pump FAST. the fan isn't spinning because it was "Most Likely" never cleaned properly- using a can of 'compr ... PC Desktops
