Hi, for more than a week now my left side fan is making weird noises. I have removed the back side and cleaned the air vent installed a cooling pad and changed the power settings too. How to solve this?

Hi @Selva18,

 

Welcome to HP Support Community.  


Thank you for posting your query, I will be glad to help you.

 

It's great that you've taken several steps to address the issue with your laptop's left-side fan making weird noises. Since you've already cleaned the air vent, installed a cooling pad, and adjusted the power settings, there are a few more things you can try to troubleshoot the problem.

 

  • Inspect the Fan Blades: While the laptop is turned off, carefully inspect the fan blades to ensure there's no visible damage or obstructions. Even a small piece of debris can cause unusual noises.
  • Check for Loose Screws or Components: Sometimes, loose screws or components inside the laptop can cause vibrations that lead to strange noises. Gently shake the laptop (while powered off) and listen for any rattling or unusual sounds.
  • Update Drivers and BIOS: Outdated drivers or a BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) that needs updating can sometimes cause hardware issues. Visit the HP support website for your laptop model and ensure you have the latest drivers and BIOS version installed.
  • Monitor CPU and GPU Temperatures: High temperatures can cause fans to work harder and produce more noise. Use software like HWMonitor or SpeedFan to monitor your CPU and GPU temperatures. If they're consistently high, you might need to reapply thermal paste or consider more robust cooling solutions.

 

I hope this helps. 
 

Take care and have a good day.

Upon inspecting the fan there is damage to it. Can you help me by providing the right replacement part for this specific model to buy? Thank you
