Fan Exagerated Noise

\015 Hi, I have my pavilion for 2 years now and for a few months the processor fan started making TOO much noise, and it's getting worse. I Cleaned the fan VERY well, actualy took about an hr to make sure its all good. Does not solve the problem, better yet, doesn't make a difference!!! Then I reinstalled the windows, changed my vista for XP, didnt solve it, its worse actualy. It does it only sometimes and only when certain programs r running (java, realplayer & other) and as time passes, the list grows bigger for some reason. Don't tell me its because the programs r significantly big, because it worked just fine for about a year and a half. Worse part about it ... It shuts down after 30 minutes (guessing the processor gets overheated). I checked the fan and it seems to be spinning pritty well and u can feel the air traveling. SO WHAT IS THE PROBLEM???? P.S.: Not sure which pavilion it is, but it is a desktop not a laptop.\015

Answers :

The noisy fan is most likely caused by a worn/faulty bearing. This causes the fan to vibrate in the bearing and spin slower and therefore cause overheating CPU problems.
\015\012The CPU fan needs to be replaced.
You can try cleaning the fan as too much dirt may have accumulated.

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
