Probook 4530s Fan issue

my probook 4530s running windows 7 home premium core i3 was one year old in june 2013. I have started to notice that the fan makes a loud noise sometimes. It use to run continually before and pick up speed when I use to play heavy graphic games which i presume is normal. Now I have noticed that the fan does not work that often and my processor heats up to 82c (doing normal browsing) and then the fan comes on, that also in small bursts.

My friend also has the same model probook, he purchased it a year before me and when his one year was up had the same issue and replaced his fan.

Is the fan spoilt?  

if I replace it should I use an non flawed brand, which brand?

 

Appreciate your support.

Re: Probook 4530s Fan issue

You can try to clean your fan or replace thermal grease or thermal pad on the CPU which is under teh heat sink.

You can get the tehrmal grease from any computer store

 

Take a look at the link below for cleaning the FAN

Re: Probook 4530s Fan issue

I clean the fan every 4 months from the time I brought the laptop so Cleanness is not the issue.

You gave me the link to buy a replacement fan, I don't think you read my question, which is if this model of the fan is Flawed I would be replacing it with the same and looking to have the same issue after a year. This is a known issue, if you run a google search on 4530s fan issue you will even find a facebook page of people having the same issue.

Hi Alex,

 

Your ProBook is a Business model.  Your issue would be best answered on the HP Enterprise Business Community Forum

Hi Alex,

 

I won't recommand you purchase fan from 3rd party since it is not qualified.

By searching from Google, i believe your issue is different from other people. 

Changing a new fan and thermal grease/pad can solve your issue.

 

Best Regards

 

Chris

Re: Probook 4530s Fan issue

I would suggest posting your issue in the Enterprise Forums as I suggested above, which is the appropriate forum for business model notebooks.

 

Good luck!

Re: Probook 4530s Fan issue

For all interested users who are not having any luck with the HP Fan Control or other suggested tools.

 

I have a 4530s which started showing symptoms of a pulsating fan i.e. fan going to full RPM and back to normal in matter of seconds. After couple of months time frame it continously ran on full RPM and no tool would slow down the fan or stop it.  Turns out that one of the fan cable (in my case blue one) had been crushed by the back cover and was possibly in a disconnected state. Fiddling with this cable immedietly slowed down the fan. I believe that over time the cable was continously pressed in its place by a plastic piece in the back cover which eventually caused it to break. I have sort of straightened the cable and placed the cover back and voila all works fine (even with out the HPFanControl). I did also get rid of the offending pieace from the back cover so that it can not damage the cable any more.

 

Putting in a new fan I believe gets rid of the issue since the cable is also brand new...
