Having problems with your HP Pavilion a705w PC Desktop ?

Hi I have a HP Pavillon a708 and the fan is almost constantly on. It's really noisy and seems to slow the PC down, is there anything I can do??


Answers :

First, open up the case and gently vacuum all the dust, especially around the 2 fans.

If still noisy and the problem is the cooling fan (3-5 inches across), \015\012buy a replacement fan of the appropriate size at \015\012a PC store for $30 - $40. It takes 5-10 minutes to unscrew the old \015\012fan and install the new one, and just use the same electric wire from the old \015\012fan for the new fan.

If it's the CPU fan, you'll need to have your PC serviced.

Hope this helps.

Too slow We bought our computar about 2 years ago and it is really slow. There seems to be plenty of space left on the C-drive but the D-drive is almost full. There are also a lot of program always running when I check the task manager but I don't know how to stop them or what I need and don't need. Should I get more memory? Or try to delete things? I don't want to get a new computar because the one we have isn't that old and it works fine otherwise.
