Loud fan noise

\015 Intermittant buzzing from rear fan in HP Pavilion 515n.\015

Answers :

have one very similar, they only have a fan in\015\012the power supply, and a small, small fan on the CPU. If it's the fan in\015\012the power supply making the noise, some people would say replace the\015\012whole unit, some would say replace the fan. I would replace the fan,\015\012but if you don't want to take the risk of getting electrocuted, that's\015\012probably a great idea. A power supply can be found somewhat cheaply,\015\012but one that fits those cases might not be quite as easy.
This is probably due to the fan just spinning fast, because your PC is hot, and it needs to disperse the heat. You could try to buy a quieter fan. What can help to reduce the vibrations of the fan resonating into the PC case, is to take a little piece of rubber, and put it on the screws between the fan and the computer case. That should reduce the buzzing.\015\012If it doesn't, buying another fan is the only thing left.\015\012\015\012I hope this helps,\015\012Yannick.
