Having problems with your eMachines T5048 PC Desktop ?
My cpu fan will not shut off it is so loud should i replace the fan or is there a way to repair this problem
Hey give me some of that 4 diamond action..I helped too...:)...thanks glad things worked out, always good to have a happy customer..
Your CPU fan should always be on while the computer is on. If it's off, your computer is going to crach in a matter of time. The noise is normal. If it's to loud, replace the fan. Nothing major. But it is normal for the fan to be loud. Thats a good sign it's cooling the CPU. But you can get a shfter 1. Your computer might over heat though. Good luck.

I've had a bad dust problem and my cpu fan began making a loud whirring noise and finally the computer shut down altogether. Took the cover off totally cleaned out the dust and turned the power back on. Still no action. Is it just one main fan problem? Don't know which one it is.

Hp v6630em fails to start when the "on" button is pressed. It is connected to the power supply and the blue lights are illuminated. I can hear a whirring sound for a couple of seconds and then all is quiet. Nothing appears on the screen.
This sounds like either a fan or CPU/motherboard problem. Either one is going to be expensive to fix, the fan less so than the CPU ($15-20 vs $100-$400).However, before we assume that the laptop is dead, remove the battery and attempt to ... HP PC Desktops
Have a Gateway GM5474 w/ Windows Vista SP1 newly reinstalled. it was reinstalled b/c it kept randomly freezing up and no problems could be found or sloved by Windows Pc repair or other.

Laptop Fan? I shut down my laptop (which I never do), and when I tried to reboot it, it beeped and said "Fan Error," then shut itself back down. I'm assuming that means my fan is dead, and I need to replace it...correct? About how much will that cost, and where can I get it repaired?
