ideaCentre B550 making strong noises

I just bought a b550 IdeaCentre and turned on - it make so much noise! It must be the fan, but this looks like an old camera, it is very annoying, I can't work like this. Is it a default, or is there something I can do?


I called Lenovo support, this isn't just the fan, it is a defect. Will have to return

  • HP Pavilion a1220n Desktop PC fan (FANIN1) making the noise

    my desktop HP Pavilion a1220n (FANIN1) exhaust fan making a noise.  start-up noise, RPM fan drops of about 960 (no noise) to 750 (noise).  I guess that the fan will stop at some point soon.

    Anyone know the name / plug for this fan, so I can buy a replacement?

    I opened the folder and the fan noise starts, I hit the fan and the noise goes away for a few minutes and then go back.  not the best solution.  If the fan stops, and since it is the exhaust fan, can I keep running my PC with the box to open?  Is the fan at the bottom of the case, not the cooling fan in the CPU.  I guess when the case is open, I get a lot of air so that when the fan stops completely, I can always run the PC.

    Sorry for hiking...

    With regard to the problem of noise WEIRD;
    My drive does not spin if no disc has been inserted.
    So if this will happen again and will not stop, so I recommend asking an ASP technician for the verification of the material eventually the STRANGE should be replaced then

    Also turn off the microphone in order to check if the sound is not completed as described here

  • Qosmio F20 speakers making hissing noise


    My Qosmio F20 has a strange problem. After turning on the laptop, the speakers start making a whistling noise. You can clearly hear it all the time. Toshiba has just replaced the motherboard but tis whistle is still there. Is it normal for the Qosmio F20? When I turn off the sound in Windows the whistle went, also after that put in headphones (there no hiss in the headphones...) the noise disappeared.

    Thanks for the tips!


    Hello Borlando

    Over the past two months also have F20 and I don't really no bad experiences. Sound quality is good especially with the virtual sound. F20 has small speakers and you can't force them up. I did some experiments with all the details of the built in speakers option and I am very satisfied.

    Good bye

  • Keyboard in Logic Pro making strange noise

    Recently, I figured out how to use an audio interface for Logic Pro X so that I can record MIDI and hear me during the recording, but the sound I hear is very strange. When I'm not recording, the regular Steinway Piano preset sounds as it contains some very slow tremolo, making some notes sound an octave higher sometimes. However, when I save, the sound plays back perfectly normal. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Data sheet:

    Roland RD - 800 keyboard

    Interface Audio EX Roland Duo-Capture

    Maybe the RD-800 sends on two or more MIDI channels at the same time. To do this, simply save a note and take a look at the Publisher of the event, how many events is recorded.



  • My Mac was purchased in November 2014. The fan makes a noise Purring but stops when I lift it and hold it vertically. I just got this back from repair to the workshop of John Lewis as he made a further strong noise.

    My Macbook (one and a half year). The fan has become noisy and I just got in return for repair from John Lewis. The problem is that I think that it is still too noisy. He runs not fast, but it is noisier than it was when we bought it first.  The fan noise also stops when I take the Mac on the end. Is this normal?  Thank you.

    There is no such thing as a MacBook 1 year and a half with a fan.

    The 12 '' MacBook isn't a fan.

    The last MacBook with a fan was the 2010 model.

    Perhaps you have a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro, if so you should post your question to one of these areas of the forum.

  • HP Pavilion dv6t-7000 CTO: fan making loud noise, need of replacement but can't find it

    So my laptop fan started to make really loud this rattle sound. Makes me very self-consciousness of me when I'm in public, so I just Don ' t bother bringing them along. But I really need my laptop with me. The noise usually comes out randomly.

    I tried the HP part Store selector and in the fan section it lists just the fan button, which is not what I need. I think I need to completely replace the fan at this point (I tried to fix the problem of cleaning the fan out of the dust to check it for possible damage, but can not find what is the problem).

    If anyone knows where I can find a spare for my laptop fan and I have to buy with all heat sink heat and thermal paste? I'm pretty experience in the repair of the computer so I have confidence that I can do, more my warranty expired in 2014, so I don't be invalidated anyway.

    If it helps any, the product is of # A3E83AV.

    The noise is usually caused by a defect in the fan motor bearing.

    You were on behalf of the incorrect item.

    What you need is the discreet thermal module, which contains the fan a heat for the CPU and video sink.

    The part number for the product number of your laptop is 682061-001. It's on the document next to the web HP PartSurfer.

  • Satellite A350 - Microphone making strange noise

    When talking to people on Skype and MSN people say my mic makes strange noises. They can hear me vaguely on the noise. People say it's a bit like a gurgling noise.

    At first I thought that it would be a driver problem so by using Device Manager in windows I have searched online for a update for my Realtek High Definition Audio and he told me that the version is up-to-date.

    I went from Vista to Windows 7 about 5-6 months there may be that this is a problem when I reinstalled my drivers? Any advice would be appreciated!

    Characteristics of the computer:
    -Windows 7 Ultimate SP1
    -Intel Core 2 Duo CPU P7450 2.13 GHz
    4.00 GB of RAM (2.99 usable)

    Thanks in advance


    Driver update might be useful in this case, but the audio driver is not related to the internal mic. The internal MIC is part of the webcam then in this case I recommend to reinstall the driver for the webcam of the official website of Toshiba: > support & downloads > download drivers

    And don t forget to check the Windows sound settings. I would try to disable the microphone amplifier and reduce the volume of the microphone.

  • Cooler on Satellite L505 making strange noise

    I have a Satellite 505 for about 6 months, and a few days ago the cooler started making strange buzzing when he works on the high rpm. He fell, got shaked, nothing.
    Is it possible to fix it (maybe clean?) without taking it to the laboratory of support?

    You have enough new notebook with valid warranty, and don t waste your time with temporary solutions and communicate with the service of Toshiba. They should solve the problem.

    Yes its best recommended that you take it to an apple store for a more thorough inspection. The inspection is free replacement gets expensive parts.

  • Portable fan making loud noise? / What should I do?


    should I get my laptop cleaned of laptop repair center or can I do it myself... I am a newbie


    First of all, I would like to get yourself some canned air and try to blow the fan through the vents at the bottom and side.  If after that you still have a problem, and your laptop is under warranty, take in a HP Service Center and ask them to clean it up.  If it is not under warranty you cang and patterns looking towards the top of your machine and then find the service manual.  Then you can get out the screwdriver and get to work cleaning this fan.

    The fan draws in air from the bottom and it blows on the side, the problem is that it will also suck in hair, dust bunnies and other debris which is then trapped between the fan and the heat sink.  Over time, it can layer up and choke the airflow to the processor, causing the fan to work more hard and strong.
