    I have a Dimension 4700 and lately I have noticed that it is getting louder and louder. It seems the fan is always running and the hard drive is really loud. Am I on the verge of a complete melt down of the hard drive?

    I had a Dell server recentlyreported as running"loud" and it was the main fan in the back starting to go bad. (bearings maybe) I replaced the fan and no more noise. (could not findtheparthere at Dell, had to order it elsewhere)

    Over the last few days I've noticed that the sound on my PC keeps getting quieter and louder. I thought it was my imagination at first. It's like someone's messing with the voume control.

    I've got a set of 5. speakers and a Creative X-FI Xtreme Gamer card. I've not changed any settings, done any updates or anything else that may have caused a change.

    I updated the drivers today to see if that would have an effect but it hasn't.

    Does anyone have any advice on this issue?

    I don't think that you could hear the fan before but now you can hear it, and its pretty loud. Is this normal, if not,why can l hear the fan. Computer is a 4100 series and only 9 months. Please help...thank-you.

    DB:3.38:Fan On Computer Is Getting Louder am

    Chances are the fan blades are starting to accumulate dust on them. Try using a little compressed air to clean them off and see if that reduces the sound. While your at it after 9 months of operation the whole computer could probably using a good blowing out of all the dust bunnies.

    DB:3.35:Ps3 Getting Louder... zd



    My current PS3 is my second. My first was replaced by this one because it died. I've had this PS3 since May 6th.

    The issue I'm having with this PlayStation is that it gets louder and louder as I play it.

    First, when I've just turned the PS3 on, it's quiet.

    When I insert a game, it becomes louder.

    When I play the game, it becomes louder and louder. This makes me afraid to play because this has never happened with my previous PlayStation.

    At one time, I was playing Uncharted 2 for a bit, then played God of War 3 for about 30 minutes and the PS3 was sounding like a jet.

    Should I worry about this? What causes this to happen? Is there any way of fixing it?

    Also (this is off the topic), whenever I inserted a disk into my previous PlayStaion, it would usually spin as it was going in/out. Now, with this PlayStation, it doesn't, but instead, the disk just goes straight in. I would be interested in knowing if this affects the PlayStation performance in any way.




    DB:3.35:Ps3 Getting Louder... zd

    Basically it's a hardware problem and it's running too hot, the same happened to me. The fans are not supposed to be that loud under any normal conditions. It's only a matter of time before it dies, could be weeks, could even be months, like mine.

    DB:2.95:Help Noisy Power Supply Fan pp


    Hi. I am another Dell Dimension owner.

    Before you contact Dell tech support (either by email or phone) you want to make sure it is the power supply fan and not some other moving part such as the processor/case fan, a fan on the video card, or a drive (CD or hard drive).

    Tips on how to be sure are at:

    http://support.dell.com/us/en/kb/document.asp?DN=1033989

    There are pros and cons to using the phone vs. email. Email can be frustrating because the troubleshooters at the other end are in a hurry and often don't read/respond to everything you write.Phone though can involve long waits, and email response, though very often off the mark, are prompt.

    My Dimension's fan unacceptable fan noise was from the case or processor fan. Dell sent a replacement JMC/Datech brand fan identical to the original equipment one. It was quieter than the original factory installed fan, but still too noisy, in my opinion. I had read here and on an internet newsgroup that Dell also uses NMB brand fans, so decided to ask for a second replacement fan, this time specifying the NMB brand.

    It took 15 emails back and forth, answered by 9 different techs at 2 different addresses, but today an entire new fan assembly arrived, including not only an NMB brand fan, but also a redesigned mounting system. The fan is attached to the mount by four rubber bushings instead of a plastic clip, and the mount is securely clipped to the metal back of the case instead of just sort of hanging there. The rubber pad on top of the green shroud above the fan, which was used to secure the fan assembly against the metal back of the case, is no more. My initial impression is that it is quieter, but only time will tell.

    If your noise is from the power supply fan, they probably will ship you an entire new power supply. Depending on your warranty, you have the option of asking to install it yourself or have an on site tech come out to install it.

    Read the URL I sent, have courage and energy, and contact Dell Support, either via email or phone. Good luck to you.

    Hi, I recently took my Dimension/XPS 400 Desktop in a suitcase on a plane for travel and when it arrived, it turned on fine, but the fan kept getting louder and louder as Windows XP started (in fact, by the time the desktop screen loads and more application icons go into the startup bar, the fan was still getting louder so I quickly turned it off in fear that the CPU was getting too hot due to inadequate ventilation or something and as if the CPU would fry any second. I think I have just enough technical skills to have recognized the CPU may have been getting progressively hot from a banged-up desktop in a suitcase during travel, but not enough to diagnose what could be wrong. Can anyone explain why my fan was making more and more noise; was it because the CPU may have been disconnected from anything that keeps it cool (such as the heat sink??) I noticed the box of metal sheets (heatsink, i think it's called) was a little loose; the fan by it was working so I don't think it was the PSU... what kinds of things can I check to find what's making that noise and to make it go down. Is the PSU a possible player? Thanks for the help.

    Hi, i've had my ps3 for 4 months now, never had a problem with it, never froze or anything like that.

    But lately my ps3 has been getting louder, only when playing games or blu ray movies, staying on the XMB, streaming,watching videos, looking and pictures and listening to music it keeps quiet.

    But i've noticed that after 5 minutes of gameplay the fan gets louder, than at 15 mins it becomes noticable enough when the tv is muted or quiet, especially when in use late at night.

    I've done everything had it checked out by repairers they said they couldn't fault it, i vacumed the vents, did a fan test, no difference what do ever. And no the fan test has not changed the prefromance what so ever. All the discs i have are in perfect condition, it's in a well vented space, i keep it very clean.

    But i've noticed i can leave it on the xmb for 4 hours and it be quiet, on a games for 15 minutes gets loud, could it be the laseris dirty has to work harder?

    or what else?

    Cause i'm leaning to trading this thing in and buying a slim instead.

    Why is there a loud buzz coming from the mini tower? The computer seems to be operating o.k. Just louder than usual.

    DB:2.79:Tower Buzz 8f

    There are four or five possibilities for the source of loud noises from the inside of the computer. For the fans, please check and see if one specific one is causing the noise. For the hard drive and CDROM/DVDROM drive, you should open the side of the case and power on the machine and see if the noise can be pinpointed.

    The power supply fan -- this fan is located on the back of the machine at the top. If this fan were at fault, the power supply would need to be replaced.

    The chassis fan -- this is located directly beneath the power supply fan (on some cases this fan is not applicable). This fan has a separate part number and can be replaced independently.

    The video card fan (if applicable) -- this is mounted directly on the video card, located within the AGP expansion slot. The video card may need to be replaced if a separate fan part is not available.

    The hard drive -- located beneath the floppy drive, in most cases mounted vertically against the front bezel plate. If this is the source of the noise, BACKUP YOUR VITAL DATA IMMEDIATELY, and the drive will need to be replaced.

    The CDROM/DVDROM drive -- With the 8x drives and up, very small impurities in the media can cause vibration and wobbling when using a CD. Print that is thicker on one half of the CD than the other or imbalances caused by the presence of impurities in the manufacturing process of the actual disk can cause the CD to become unbalanced while spinning at high speeds. This is usually not indicative of hardware failure; however, if the noise worsens, or you begin to have difficulty reading any type of disc, you may want to consider having it replaced.

    Conceivably it could be an unbalanced CD in the optical drive. To check for that, boot the machine, immediately press the mouse button, keep it held down - that's a hardware command to the Mac to eject all removable media.

    Noise that seems to get louder the longer the computer runs and gets louder after you run a heavy duty app such as game could indicate your processor fan is the source of the noise. I have a Dell Dimension 4400 and it would make noise after I played one of my games on it. The fans in the Dell are designed to increased speed when the CPU gets hotter. If you hear a whinning noise your CPU fan could be wearing out and you may want to consider checking to see if wires are bumping it or if the fan looks like there's nothing obstructing it then the fan could be wearing out and should be repaired/replaced ASAP. You can also do what the others have told to you check for abnormal system noise. Take care and good luck, Gary

    DB:2.71:Audition Stops Recording When Sounds Get Louder 8z



    I'm using a Tascam US-122 MK-II interface to record drums by pluging a mixer's output and a condensator microphone into the two inputs of the Tascam.Every time when my drumming gets louder, Audition starts skipping and eventually stops recording. Even when I put down the volume of the channels the same error keeps occuring.I think it has something to do with the poor qualitiy of the soundcard that I have in my laptop, because when I use another computer this doesn't happen.

    I tried installing the latest drivers of the soundcard and the interface, but it doesn't seem to help.

    Can anyone help?

    DB:2.71:Audition Stops Recording When Sounds Get Louder 8z


    My US-144 draws 480mA - pretty close to the 500mA limit. It has a headphone amp separate from the line out stages, and also provides phantom power etc., so it wouldn't take much to push it over the limit. I used to have a Creative USB device that drew high current and worked on some laptops but not others.

    If using Windows 7, it is possible to record and monitor usb events using free Microsoft software, but it's not for the faint hearted.

    DB:2.66:Why Computer Keeps Shutting Down Getting Message That Was Due To System Service Extension xs


    while on the internet the computer has shut down numerous time this last time it did so with a lot of noise (never ever heard that before)

    DB:2.66:Why Computer Keeps Shutting Down Getting Message That Was Due To System Service Extension xs

    Hi Lorique,

    I understand that you get an error message “system service extension” while shutting down after connecting to Internet. I will surely help you with this issue.

    1) Is the issue confined when trying to access Internet?
    2) What is the exact/ complete error message you receive?
    3) Are you using Wired or Wireless connection to connect to Internet?
    4) Have you made any changes on the computer prior to this issue?
    5) Do you receive any error message when trying to connect to Internet?

    Method 1: If you can't connect to the Internet or get to a particular website, there might be a problem with your Internet connection. Try using the Internet Connections troubleshooter to fix the problem.
    · Open the Internet Connections troubleshooter by swiping in from the right edge of the screen, tapping
    Search (or if you're using a mouse, pointing to the upper-right corner of the screen, moving the mouse pointer down, and then clicking
    Search), entering
    troubleshooting in the search box, tapping or clicking
    Settings, and then tapping or clicking
    Troubleshooting. Tap or click
    Network and Internet, and then tap or click
    Internet Connections.

    Method 2:
    Step 1: I would suggest you to boot the computer in Safe Mode and check if it helps.
    Windows Startup Settings (including safe mode)
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/windows-startup-settings-including-safe-mode
    If you are using Wireless connection, I would suggest you to enable the Wireless connection in services and startup then try to place the computer in Clean Boot mode.

    Step 2: I would suggest you to place the computer in clean boot mode and check if the issue persists.

    A clean boot helps to verify if any third party application services or startup item is causing this issue.
    You may refer the following KB article to set the computer in clean boot:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
    Note: After the trouble shooting steps, refer to Step 3 from the clean boot link to place the computer back to normal start up mode.

    Method 3: I would also suggest you to follow the steps from the link and check if it helps.
    How do I fix network adapter problems?

    DB:2.64:Is The Mac Mini Noisy ?...I Constantly Hear The Fan dd

    Hi there Har123. Download a free app called smc fan control. and any other app to check the internal temperature of the mac. It could be a sensor malfunction and may think its over heating, or the HDD or RAM itself overheating. Use those apps to check if the fan speed is at a high rate and if the mac's temperature is too high. If both of them show these symptoms. Please show the apple store that you want a exchange. Because if you show them the proof right away, they will exchange your mac more conveniently. Rather saying oh my mac is louder than any other macs. Apple can use excuses to delay to fix the issues as they need to verify what is the problem leaving you disappointed with the service. You need to tell them the specfic causes for the specific problems you have. And everyone is a winner.

    DB:2.61:Computer Keeps Restarting 8x

    XP is supposed to try to restart when there is a failure, but you can tell it not to.
    Perhaps you are experincing a Blue Screen of Death and you just can't see what it says.
    From the Safe Mode options menu,choose the option that tells XP not to restart automatically on a system failure:
    Disable automatic restart on system failure
    Then you can see the BSOD when it happens again.
    Here is a BSOD example showing information you need to provide:
    http://techrepublic.com.com/i/tr/downloads/images/bsod_a.jpg
    Send the information pointed to with the red arrows (3-4 lines total).

At first I tried to live with that, then I got pissed off and undid what he had done and my PC runs great since.

    About a week ago my fan (I believe it's the CPU fan) started running much louder than normal. Some days it's louder than others, but the past few days it has been especially loud. I opened the task manager to see if anything was using all my CPU power, and it looked like System Mechanic 7 was, so I uninstalled it, but today I'm having the same problem. I turn the machine on, everything is fine for a few hours, then the fan starts getting louder. Everything else is working perfectly, no problems at all, but this loud fan is really getting to me. I dusted the fans out the best I could, but that didn't seem to take care of the probelm. Any suggestions? I asked my brother about it and he said the temperature of the room my computer is in can cause the fan to run louder, and it when the problem started was our first really warm day, but that doesn't sound right to me. Anyone have any idea what I should do?

    Is there at least 6+ between the system's back panel and the wall?

    You could replace the fan, if the system is under warranty, then contact Dell, for a replacemnt fan, no warranty, then you can buy the fan from Dell Spare Parts.

    I have experienced several issues with my dell laptop. My computer is getting really hot (75*C) even when I am not doing anything demanding, just reading a pdf, yet my graphic card fan (I think so) is working very silently, barely doing anything. Because of that I cant play some games like Tomb Raider or even League of Legends on sufficient graphics level. At first everything is ok, but after a while games frap, warp and freeze and I have like 10fps, which is very bad. I cant find in BIOS any way to increase fan speed. I dont mind it working a little louder or even much louder, I just want clean performance. I have all my drivers and BIOS up to date, Dell hardware test was all passed. What should I do?

    Remove the side panel from the case, and look for the heatsink Cooler for the CPU. Make sure there isn't a wire stuck in the fan and make sure the CPU fan's power cord has not come unplugged from the mobo.

    My dell dem5000is 6 months old, it was a problem from the start and so they gave me a new 160 gig HD and doubled my memory to 1024. Since the replacement the hard drive has become overwhelmingly loud, if you open anything it was like you were firing up and exhaust.Thus the fan goes into overtime as well, between the both I can't stand to use it. Sadly it is getting louder, and louder. Even when everything is shut down and nothing is open the fan is sooooo loud that if I'm on the phone people ask what is that noise?

    Prior to this I had a measely celron 2.8 processer with 256 memory. My hard drive content has not changed at all... in fact I don't use a quarter of the memory or space I have. So can anyone advise me if this is an issue with all Dell PC's? I thought I was buying the best and now I wish I had my old pc, the quiet, peaceful bliss of actually being able to set at my desk and use it.

    If there are no minidump files there, then we can try some other troubleshooting steps. Essentially we want to find out if hardware or software is causing the crashes so can you try loading Windows into safe mode (F8 on start up) and see if the system
    crashes while in safe mode?
    If so, we are possibly looking at a memory issue. If it runs fine in safe mode, we can find out what piece of software is causing the problem.

    DB:2.55:Hot Computer And Loud Fans 9s

    William, cleaning fans reduced my MBP temperature about 30C (74C to 43C, CPU 5%). Dust was blocking maybe 30% of the heat sinks. The MBP is sensitive to dust. My environment is typical southern California household.

    Cleaning fans is a delicate job, best left to an advanced technician, but it works on recent MBP, and no thermal paste is needed. I removed 8 bottom case screws and 6 fan screws, cleaned with tweezers and a small blower, and reassembled. See iFixit.com for repair guides.

    This lag is is ruining the whole "touch screen" experience. Any suggestions?

    This has always happened but it's getting worse as time goes on. It's also getting louder.

    Hi cajunbase,
    Welcome to Microsoft windows vista forums!
    I would like to know the following information to help focus in the right direction!
    a. Did you make any changes to the computer prior to this issue?
    b. When does this issue occur (opening internet explorer, using some programs…..)?
    I would suggest you to try the following steps:
    Step 1: Boot the computer in safe mode:
    To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:
    a. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.

    b. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.

    c. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.
    If you are able to work without any issue in safe mode then you can infer that some third party software is causing the issue
    Step 2: Put the computer in clean boot (to figure out if any third party software is hindering the process)

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135 ---- How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
    Perform a clean boot (check step 1 of the link); if everything works fine after a clean boot, you can infer that some third party services are causing the problem.
    Proceed with the remaining steps to pin-point out the third party service.

    Note: After you figure out the problem causing program, you may have to update or install a higher version of the program, if you seldom use that software you can consider uninstalling

    Important: - remember to put the computer back to normal startup
    Step 3: Check with another user profile
    If you do not have another user account, you will have to create one.
    If everything works fine with another user profile, you can infer that the user profile is corrupt, check the link to know how to fix this issue.

    Step 4: Run an online scan for any threat and try to fix them

    DB:2.55:Acer Aspire Keeps Getting Disconnected From Internet. xs



    This computer keeps disconnecting from internet. I don't have this problem with other devices connected to internet; ISP has checked router and found no problems. Other than this issue I like this comuter. Please help!

    DB:2.55:Acer Aspire Keeps Getting Disconnected From Internet. xs


    Quit banging your head against the wall and return/exchange the thing. I spent countless hours not studying and doing exactly what you've done. Everything. It teased me and worked great for about 60 minutes until the disconnects started again after trying the fix you just did. I've been obsessing over the thing, this is not a cheap purchase and seeing that the depreciation of computers is ridculous I want my laptop to work how it should from the start.

    It is such a great laptop otherwise that I am willing to risk the same headache again on the updated model.

    DB:2.55:Desktop Fan a7



    I purchased an HP Envy desktop in April 2013. For the first ten months, it ran so quietly, you could hardly tell it was on. Recently, it has started to become noisey when I first turn it on. It sounds like a fan that is vibrating. Aftera few minutes, the noise goes away and the computer is quiet again. The noise has been getting louder over time. The noise is NOT like my other computers that get louder when the fan speeds up due to processing demands. It is a different sound like something is off kilter or a grinding sound. It's not very loud, but noticeable compared to how quiet my system normally runs. Should I be concerned and take it in for repair?

    DB:2.55:Desktop Fan a7


    Relax9, welcome to the forum.

    It sounds like a fan blade that is out of balance. It could be that there is dust on the fan that is creating the problem. A thorough cleaning may help. Also, it could be that a something is loose and the fan is making it vibrate.

    DB:2.55:My Sound Keeps Fluctuating When Listenin To Music, Getting Louder And Softer Randomly kp


    my new inspiron 9400 has been having trouble with its sound. The sound will fade in and out when listening to music, getting louder and softer randomly. The strange thing is that it seems to only happen with rap music, or types of music with fast beats and a lot of bass. Most of my rock music seems to play fine. Why do I have this problem and how do i fix it? Any help would be much appreciated!!!

    DB:2.55:New And Unwanted Sound From Drive 9k



    Has anyone else experienced a louder thannormal sound from their hard drive? It's basically a humming/buzzing sound that just developed 2 days ago. I am on my 3rd hard drive since getting my computer at the end of December 2003 and am wondering what this new development is and what it's going to end up doing. It's getting to the point where I am afraid to turn on my computer for fear offinding it is "out of commission again".

    Murray.

    Run Dell diagnostics and see if the hard drive is failing and if the drive fails the test, then phone Dell Tech, Support and rquest the hard drive be replaced. Instructions for using the diagnostics should be in the Owner's Manual.

    DB:2.55:Mbp C2d 17" - Fans Getting On My Nerves zf


    The fan noise on my laptop is driving me insane, not because it is loud - it is actually very quiet but it keeps changing in loudness, even when the computer is sitting idle on desktop.

    One second the fan will be fairly quiet and then suddenly it will go a bit louder for 10 seconds and then quiet again or something like that. I wouldn't mind, even if it was loud and it stayed like it but it is really getting to me when I am working in a quiet room and it goes loud, then quieter. And it seems to click in between which I think is the hard disk telling them to start.

    Anyone know what could be causing this as it is driving me up the wall?

    Thanks

    DB:2.55:Mbp C2d 17" - Fans Getting On My Nerves zf

    I get the exact same thing. This is my second C2D and am loathe to return it as I am writing up my thesis. But like u it really gives me the irrates. Furthermore when backing up my files to disc the fans start blasting away. Overall I must say that the Intel experience for me has not been good at all.

    For awhile now I've been getting these constant annoying sounds like a ringing noise. It happens whenever the

    computer is idling and gets much louder when i open a program. I'm considering sending this to toshiba for tech support unless there's something that i can do to stop this right now?
