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

Jan 21, 2010

I've noticed that my 8510p's HDD (which is a Toshiba) makes a loud scratching sound for about a second every week or every two weeks. I ran HD Tune's error scan and it came up with no damaged blocks. What's wrong? Should I be worried? I've already backed-up my important stuff.

Apple :: Macbook Pro - Battery Cover Making Ticking Sound When Pressed

Jan 18, 2010

I bought a 13 inch macbook pro about a month ago and while enjoying my laptop, I heard a very faint tick sound. after a few days the tick sound become more prominent and after reading few complaints about ticking/clicking sound I am pretty sure this has nothing to do with the motion sensor or fan noise problems.

after few weeks gone by and I found out that if you press the bottom side of the laptop it will make a tick sound (is this normal?) I am not sure if this is causing the ticking problem I've been hearing.

Sony :: Vaio SZ No Sound

May 3, 2009

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ150P, but the sound doesn't work.

The previous owner said he made by acident a shortcut, near the keyboard connector.

The symptoms the driver does work, and when I look in the volume control I see a moving green bar, indicating the sound is produced, but it doesn't come out.

I tried with external speakers but no luck there.

It clearly is a hardware fault.

I can't find anything on the board that has to do with sound, can someone tell me where to look, and what to look for.

May 27, 2009

I use a sony vaio FZ31S and I havent encountered any problem yet but I want to be sure and dicided to make the revory cd's.

Dell :: NEW M1730 GPU Fans Not Spinning?

May 25, 2009

I got a XPS M1730 with Dual 9800GT.
It is a great computer and I love it.
However, When I run HWmonitor, I get 73-76F at idle. And It has been running very hot..

I had this laptop for about a week and it's always like that.
So, I looked underneath the laptop and seems like the two GPU fans are not spinning at all.

Is this normal or something wrong with my unit?
Do I have to open it up and check the fan cable? Or is it something wrong with the bios? Only thing I did to this laptop is update the driver to nvidia's 185.85
Back of the laptop is so hot that I can't touch it with my hand..

Dell :: 1558 Harddrive Or Fan Constantly Spinning?

Feb 17, 2010

I don't know what it is, or maybe its just the way the system works...
But basically, but something is constantly on even when I just have the laptop on with a few IE windows, you can especially feel it just to the left of the touchpad. From time to time, I will also hear the the noise coming from it and it till slow down, then start up again.
I mean, its not a big issue, but is something wrong with the laptop?
This happens when the CPU load is as low as just 5%, temperatures around 42-45 degrees Celsius.

Lenovo 11e E/Edge :: E540 Fan Does Not Stop Once Started Spinning

Feb 13, 2014

The fan in my e540 does not stop once it has started spinning. This is completely independent of system temperature. Even though the temperature of the board and the cpu is below 40*C the fan won't stop.

The fan does not always spin, though. If I wake up the system from sleep or power it on, the fan does not spin and will not start spinning until a certain temperature threshold is reached. This part of fan control works correctly.
 
Interesting procedure: I work until the system gets hot and the fan kicks off. I want until the system is cooled down below 40*C (checked with speccy software, the air stream leaving the notebook is cold). The fan is still spinning at this point and will probably spin forever. I suspend the laptop (no complete power off required). I immediately "wake up" the laptop (system temperature did not change, no time to cool down). The fan is off again and will not start spinning until the temperature threshold is reached.
