I don't know what actually happened but when I plugged in my CPU this morning, it was making very odd sounds. I opened it up to find my System Fan spinning faster than normal and making a huge amount of noise...after a minute it just stops and I have to work with only the CPU fan on. Temperatures are rising intensely. Is it some power supply problem or is something wrong with the fan?Please reply...
Ok, maybe i should read more carefully:) Im assuming that the fan plugs into the motherboard, not directly into the power supply. Is this correct? If it does, check in your bios. Some have a health section where you can monitor temp and fan speed.
A fan either works or it doesn't
It sounds like the bearings are failing in the fan.
Sooner or later it will just freeze up
why won't my laptop work?
