What is the make and model of this computer?
 
Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  Clicking on this link will automatically initiate the download. 
 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.

In your next post right click inside the Reply to Topic box, then click on Paste.  This will load a link to the Speccy log.

 

After you have created and posted the Speccy purchase a canned duster and blow out the insides through the vent on the bottom of the case and on the side.  The computer needs to be off when you do this.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Please answer my previous question.  What is the make and model of this computer?

 

One concern I had was the possibility that the computer was overheating.  But the temperatures seen in the Speccy look good.

 

To clean the insides of a laptop you need to purchase a can of Gas Duster.  You will need to use this with the computer off.  If you don't hold the can straight up the liquefied contents will be sprayed rather that spray gas.  If this occurs you will need to allow enough time for this to evaporate be turning the computer on.  You can help avoid this from happening by positioning the laptop so that which ever vent you are blowing through is parallel to the can. 

 

There are usually at least on air intake vent on the bottom of a laptop, and at least on exhaust vent on the side/s.  Blow through the bottom vent first.  If the is an accumulation of dust you may see dust blow out the exhaust vent.  Then blow through the exhaust vent.

 

If this doesn't stop the whining sound you may have a bearing going out in the fan. 


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
