Dell :: M1530 Fan Noise Unusual

Jan 28, 2009

Whenever I am using my M1530 for simple tasks, such as surfing the web or checking my email, my fan is always running. It isn't running loud but it is audible 20 or so feet away. Hardware monitor places the CPU temperature at 45C and the GPU at 62C. According to task manager my CPU useage is right around 10%. Is this normal?

Dell :: M1530 Hard Drive Noise

Jan 7, 2009

I did a lot of research already but nothing seems to work . I have a 320 gig 7200rpm hard rive on the xps m1530 and the noise is pretty anoying,

I already changed the bios settings to performance, downloaded the latest driver update and when I install it I get two files that pretty much contain nothing,

I already burned a CD with the ISO file but nothing comes up, just shows up as a blank CD, I tried going to the Device Manager option and update the driver there but it didn't work either.

I found a topic discussing the latest patch R206837 for the hard drive and some users had the same problem but they never replied and said how they fixed it,

Dell :: My M1530 Made A Weird Noise

Mar 21, 2009

Alright the other day while surfing the net i noticed a strange noise coming from my laptop and I really didn't think of anything.

So anyway just 5 minutes ago while doing the same usual things like surfing the net, the same noise came out again. Just once, and it sounded something like this, DEEENGGG......

(i really don't know how to explain it) this sound appeared while my volume is muted. Anyway I know it's not the hard drive noise so i am a little worried but more so confused. I'm thinking is this an indicator that maybe the temperature of my laptop is hot that causes that sound

I'm sicking of having to set hdparm to 254 every time i resume from sleep. It's annoying as heck.

Sony :: Vaio SZ Fan Making Unusual Sound Spinning Down

Aug 20, 2009

Whenever my SZ fan spins down it makes a strange sound, as if it's rubbing against something.

I've disassembled the laptop and cleaned the fan. Nothing was obstructing the fan yet it makes the same noise.

It doesn't do it while spinning up, while running or even if I manually slow the fan down by holding a Q-Tip against it while it's spinning

Dell :: M6400 Fan Noise

Mar 7, 2009

I find the noise of the fans of my M6400 quite disturbing.

It is certainly much louder than the noise from my M6300 (also a 17" high performance laptop), or my former D810

The fans kick in quite often after short periods of being off.

Is there a way to slow down the fans or have them off for longer?

Is there a compatible fan in the market that is quieter?

Dell :: Fan Noise On Studio 15

Nov 29, 2008

I just got a Dell Studio 15 from the Dell outlet and while it's a great laptop I am wondering about the fan. It runs constantly and you can definitely hear it the whole time.

When I opened the media player it revved up a little but I wasn't even playing a video. Is this fan noise and constantly running fan normal for the Dell Studio 15?

I love the laptop but I think it is louder than usual and find it odd that the fan runs all the time. The bios installed is A05.

I have the model with an ATI video card if that makes any difference.

Dell :: Hard Drive Noise

Mar 28, 2009

I just got my M1530 a couple of days ago and I have a few concerns and I wondered if you would be kind enough to comment on.

This is my spec:
XPS M1530 CORE 2 DUO T9300 2.50GHz,800,6MDisplay 15.4" UltraSharp Widescreen WSXGA+ (1680x1050) TFT with TrueLifeMemory Dual Channel 4.0GB (2x2048) 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAMHard Drive: 320GB Free Fall Sensor (7200RPM)8xDVD+/-RW Slim Slot-Load Drive,

including SWBattery XPS Primary 6-cell 56WHr Li-IonGraphics Card 256MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 8600M GTIntegrated Sound Blaster Audigy ADVANCED HD Audio
Firstly, I notice that my hard drive (I assume the hard drive is located on the left palmrest side) always appears to be spinning loudly enough for me to notice. Is this normal? It also makes weird clicky noises intermittently and I have no idea why.

The CPU fan seems to be on an awful lot. I have a Gateway MT6821 and the fan only comes on under heavy load, with the dell it's on almost all the time.

Finally, build quality - I have noticed that the trim that sits around the LCD panel is about 2-3mm away from the screen on the left side. Is this acceptable or should I return and ask for a replacement laptop?

Dell :: Webcam Noise On XPS 1340

May 17, 2009

I noticed quite a bit of noise on my 1340. This is the 2MP camera and I had used recently a M1330 with 2MP and I do not remember any noise.

Is this normal for noise on a 2MP camera on 1340?

I have attached a picture where I covered the lens so you can see the noise on the black background.

Also what does it take to change the camera? Is it embeded with the scree and is the screen also changed with it?

Dell :: Downgrading E6500 For Less Fan Noise

Nov 30, 2008

The fan starts after a few minutes when the machine has booted. The fan will start even if I only run simple HTML-webpages etc. Afterwards it never stops but keeps running relatively fast (and noisy).

My current config is:

* P8600(2.40,1066MHz,3MB)
* NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M
* 250GB serial ATA HDD 7200RPM (Free Fall Sensor) (Seagate ST9250421ASG)
* Intel WiFi Link 5300 (802.11 a/b/g/n 3X3) 1/2 MiniCard
* Dell Wireless 370 Bluetooth
* Primary 6-cell 54W/HR LI-ION
* 15.4in Wide Screen WXGA+ (1440x900) with LED backlit
* Windows Vista Ultimate to XP Pro SP3 Downgrade SP1 with XP SP3
(Running XP currently on the machine)

Since I don't play games much and generally don't run 3D-software it was maybe a mistake to buy the E6500 with the dedicated NVIDIA-card, but I figured it was a nice feature to have in the future if I needed it.

I've tried various software to reduce the fan noise without much luck. Currently I'm considering returning the E6500 for a downgraded version without the NVIDIA-card, a lower clocked CPU and a slower HDD.

I'm considering:

* P8400(2.26,1066MHz,3MB)
* 250GB serial ATA HDD 5400RPM
* Mobile Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500HD

1) Does anyone for sure know if the fan will run slower or maybe not at all if the E6500 is equiped with the Intel X4500HD instead of the Quadro NVS 160M when I surf webpages etc. and don't run GPU-intense software?

2) Will the fan run slower with a 2.26 GHz P8400 instead of a 2.40 GHz P8600?

3) Will a 5200 RPM HDD generally generate less heat in the system vs. a 7200 RPM HDD? (and hence generate less fan noise?)

4) I would really like to know how the BIOS determines how fast the fan should run? Is it dertermined from the overall system-temperature? The CPU-temp? or the GPU-temp? HDD-temp? Maybe an average of these?

Right now the fan has run relatively fast (docked) for about an hour. According to PC Wizard 2008 the temperatures are:

- ACPI Thermal Zone: 31.5 Celcius
- Core 1: 25 C
- Core 2: 26 C
- GPU: 49 C
- HDD: 38 C
- Processor(s) activity: 1-3%

I have the fan-noise issue whenever the machine is docked or not. I like the E-port Plus very much, a digital S/PDIF-audio out would have been nice though. I hope I can use the E-port Plus with the integrated Intel X4500HD if I decide to downgrade. Dual-view is a must for me.

5) I'm not sure if DELL at all will exchange my E6500 for a downgraded version. Does anyone have experience returning DELLs when asking for a downgrade? My argument is to much noise from the fan to my taste, but I don't think DELL will buy this if there's no problem with the machine, so I probably will have to pay for the return of the first machine as well as freight for the new machine. It's quite expensive here in Denmark. Returns cost about $125 and Dell will pick up the machine, the only way to return here afaik. I have 3 year International Next Business Day On-site Response, but probably of not much use if the machine isn't broken or don't need repair.

I nice side-effect from downgrading to a slower system though, will be longer battery-life, but my ultimate goal is less noise.

Dell :: Old Inspiron 9100 Fan Noise?

Mar 27, 2009

My dad's laptop that he got about 5 years ago is a great desktop replacement. It's never caused any problems.

But my question is about the fan, it's really loud! And it's always on continuously. Is that normal? It's been like that since he got it. I've never heard a laptop so loud.

I blow into the fans regularly but is there something else I can do to get rid of the noise, or is it normal?

Dell :: Vostro 1310 Fan Noise

Apr 9, 2009

I recently purcahsed a vostro 1310 laptop. It's been absolutely great, except for one thing: the fan is incredibly annoying.

Once the processor reaches 45 degrees celsius, the fan kicks in, lowers it to 40, and then turns off. A few minutes later, the computer will go up to 45, and the fan will kick in again; so it goes through this loop of turning on and off, which is incredibly annoying.

Doing some more research, I've found that other people have also had this 'problem'. Undervolting and switching to powersaving mode solved the problem a bit, but once it hits 45, I still have the same problem.

Dell :: Inspiron 9300 Fan Noise

Mar 14, 2009

Both the fans of my Inspiron 9300 make a lot of noise. Previously in order to reduce noise I tried to completely remove the fans and cleaned them with compressed air.

At that time I found it weird that they did not make much noise when they rotated (pretty fast) because of the compressed air. The fans keep making the same amount of noise.

I notice that if I apply some pressue next to the keyboard where the fans are located the noise emitted changes.

Dell :: 1520 Strange Hdd Noise

Sep 16, 2007

i recently buyed a dell 1520, i'm very pleased of this laptop, my first laptop, but i'm worryed about one issue

from time to time, like 20-40 seconds, the hard drive (wd 160gb) makes a strange clonk/clink sound like it would park his heads and power off then power back on, and in that time, my games freeze for 0.5 sec or so, just a very fast freeze, and i have no ideea if this is good and normal or not, but from my previous experiece, it does not sound very healthy

i tryed with bypass/quiet/performace settings in bios at hdd management and it's no difference, and ofc the power saving is disabled both on hdd and on display so i'm getting to think the hdd has some problems, what you think?

the thing is that i have no errors on smart, i have no boot problems, i have no errors, just the annoying sound and the very small freezes

Dell XPS L502X :: Unbearable Fan Noise

Apr 2, 2013

I have an XPS L502X laptop.A few months ago, probably just one month after the expiry of the warranty, the fan started to make an unbearable noise. This constant on/off of the fan starts even if I just open Firefox, Windows Media Player, Office or any other software. There's no need to play games for hours. Just to clarify: the fan starts even if the laptop is completely cold and I have just turned it on.

I tried everything: I updated the BIOS drivers, I updated the NVIDIA drivers, I modified the properties of the fan control following the suggestions of some users. In short, I did everything I found on the previous threads but nothing worked!

Do I have to contact the support and plan a sostitution of the fan? I mean, I read tens of post like mine, is that possible that a definitive solution has not been found yet?

Dell XPS 17 :: Clicking Noise From The Transformer

Mar 21, 2011

I noticed that there is a clicking noise from the transformer of my new laptop (XPS 17). Around the internet i found that it could be a damaged transformer... but there is another strange issue: the clicking occours ONLY when running from windows 64bit, no clicking on Ubuntu 64bit...

So.... 3 questions:

1) do you think it's damaged?

2) do you think it can harm the laptop if used WITHOUT battery mounted?

3) do you think it can harm the laptop if used WITH battery mounted?

Dell :: Studio 14Z Fan Noise Driving Me NUTS!

Mar 27, 2010

I thought this would not be such a big deal when I bought it, but I was wrong. i8kfangui does not work, I turn power to 'power saver", but even then fans go full speed. It does occasionally slow down or off, but seems completely random. Right now I see core temps at 35 and 37, with fans at full speed.
