my mac(2011) 13 inch running windows 10 has a weird fan. it turns on when in regular use like browsing online or word processing, having multiple windows kicks the fan on in a long but almost silent hum. at random times it is high pitched and very loud. is there something wrong?

I saw lots of old threads on this problem but could not find a solution so I thought I would share my experience and solution. Hi, I just had a problem that my cpu and case fans would not switch off after shutdown. It turned out to be a dvi-d connector for my graphics card from a vga monitor. It had an option for a usb power boost I.e I could plug the micro usb end into the adaptor and the other into a normal usb to provide power to initiate the diplay. It seems I did not need to …

Hello, My name is Jeannot thewissen. I got a dell Optiplex from a friend, because he said it wont power on. So I tested it powers but if you power it on you dont get any video or sound. The only thing that happens is that the fan in a few seconds maxed out on rpm. I did search google and i found it can be a broken psu or a bad cmos battery. Both replaced. when I replaced the PSU the computer worked for a day. I wanted to install windows today and the same problem again, CPU fan …

Hi. I'm using a Fujitsu T Series 4410 Lifebook, 32-bit. My operating system is Windows 7. Recently my computer fan has begun to rattle. I believe that the fan is catching on something inside the case, and that when it rattles, it's a clue that the fan will stop. Because of this, my laptop gets extremely hot. This makes the fan start up, and usually will not stop. I've experienced the fan blow for 16 hours at the most, non-stop, no break. A year ago, the laptop did the exact same problem, and I took the fan out of the …

Hi guys, I have an Asus F5GL (X59GL) and my fan is pretty loud. It sounds like when it powers on its clipping something. Now I dont mind taking it out, giving it the once over and even replacing it if required. My issue is this: How the hell does it come out? I have been searching online for ages. The only guides I have found display the fan having a few screws and the top popping off... great! Mine isn't like this. Its situated towards the rear of the laptop, and after unscrewing doesnt want to budge. I'm worried …

Okay so a few weeks ago I started using my HDTV as one of my monitors on my GTX 285 graphics card. Then one morining I put the system to sleep woke up to turn it on. All of a sudden a fan (which I am almost 100% sure is the GPU's) is loud. I think it's spinning at 100%, the thing is it won't die down. The other problem is I have no monitor images. I mean I tried using just my 20" monitors, my tv, using both pots, only 1 screen, and I get nothing on them (I …

Hi, need some help on getting a new heat sink fan. I've currently got a stock amd one which came with my processor, Athlon 64 x2 5200+ (yes, quite old) and it's starting to make a really loud noise when the rpm increases above 4000. It makes this noise due to vibration i'm guessing and it'll be best to replace with an aftermarket one right? Anyways, i'm not really sure on which cooler to get and I've seen plenty of suggestions for a arctic cooling freezer 7 pro. The problem with this is that the fan would be facing up …

Hello everyone. [B] I would like to get a second opinion on an issue i'm having with a acer aspire 5050 notebook. Seconds after i turn it on it shutdowns suddenly( after passing the POST screen). And i've noticed that the cpu fan isn't working and cause overheating problems. So.. is the faulty fan causing those sudden shutdowns right after i turn the laptop on? or could the problem lie somewhere else??[/B]

I have a Gateway P-6860FX laptop that is not booting. I previously had a blue screen hardware error the night previous while gaming (Screen glitched up with horizontal lines, went to blue screen). The next morning I attempted to boot it, but it went to start-up repair. There the screen was weird and had similar horizontal lines that were in the normally black area around the repair box (moving mouse around caused weird glitchy effects). It tried to restart after that, and it did not boot. Now it continues not to boot. The screen turns "on" (lights up black), and …

i've downloaded the latest drivers, i mean when they were back in december. it was a tedious task of ordering them too. i had to do that by seeing their size and then clicking on the drivers page to download which showed the size and cancelled it then because i had to only check the size to determine what drivers i had and thus name them. after that i ordered them by looking at the driver order page. but then still it is not specified when to install the bios driver. i mean its an important one. my guess would …

Use a [B]Titanium G [/B]4 867 with [B]OSX 10.5.8 Leopard[/B]. After upgrading to Leopard operating system from Tiger I began having issues with my ITunes glitching out on me. I don't know if this was a coincidence that this started shortly after installing Leopard. More research I do I'm led to think it could be a heat issue. This problem arises when I'm using Youtube as well. There will be times where the sound performs without a problem then suddenly begins to freeze or cut in and out. Use headphones a lot and when this starts happening if I take …

I was wondering if I could connect a DC Motor to the HDD_LED pins of my motherboard. THen when the computer is turned on, it will turn on the motor, every-time the Hard Drive is accessed. This could then be used to do some cool stuff! Is this possible, and has people done this before? I want to make sure that I don't fry my motherboard :) Thanks in advance! NB. My replies might be a little delayed, as I am currently studying:-/ (procreastinating! :) ) for my mid-year exams!;)

My Presario will not boot up. When I press the power button, only the fan comes on. I pulled all cables and memory cards and reseated them. This did not change anything. Prior to this happening, I had taken off the side panel to clean all of the dust that had accumulated inside the unit...especially on the fan blades. This problem started right after that. I'm hoping I didn't inadvertently "zap" something as a result of cleaning out the unit. Any suggestions? Thx

I am working on a Compaq Presario SR1318NX. When I turn it on the fan starts out good but as soon as the COMPAQ logo appears the fan speeds up and then it turns off. I have tried running it in safe mode but it says system32\hal.dll is either missing or corrupted and it turns off. I'm wondering if this has to do with the processor fan or could the missing file be the problem. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I read that Facebook has changed their "Become a Fan" button to "I like" button - so my question for the members of this board are: 1. Will this affect how you promote your Face book Fan Page? 2. Do you think this will help increase Fans?

Hi, I was getting an intermittent high pitch hum from my PC as though something decided to kick in (fan?) with more revs. After replacing my 17 inch monitor (burnt out) with a new 19 inch widescreen, I now get the noise continually, and the text appears to be a lighter colour. Any clues anyone? I was thinking it's the video card with fan attached as maybe the video card can't support the bigger monitor, and cause the text to lighten.

Almost every business I know either wants to create a Facebook Fan Page or has one. So I read on Social Media Today the following stats: # 95% of pages have more than 10 fans # 65% of pages have more than 100 fans # 23% of pages have more than 1,000 fans # 4% of pages have more than 10,000 fans # 0.76% of pages have more than 100,000 fans # 0.047% of pages have more than one million fans (297 in total) Reference: [url]http://www.socialmediatoday.com/SMC/146519[/url] So what do you think its worth it getting a Facebook Fan Page afterall?

Is there an easy or efficient way to convert Facebook Friends into Fans of a Facebook Page? Is there a facebook migration program or something? Or is it just the old fashion way of just asking each friend to become fans of a page?

I have to say that I really hate the term "fan boy." It's usually used as a dismissive term to put down someone who speaks favorably of a product. It suggests that if you like a particular brand, it must mean that you blindly support everything that company does, and will come to its defense even when it's not warranted. The term is most often used with the word "Apple" in front of it, as in "oh, he's just an Apple Fan Boy." If you speak positively about Apple products, it could be that they are often good, but it …
