Guest tsichlas Posted March 1, 2005 Report Share Posted March 1, 2005 Maybe one of you guys can help. The cooling fans on my Inspiron are extremely noisy. The noise sounds like what you would get from a fan where the grease has dried out or where a bearing has gone bad. It is not continuous but is regular and steady and is extremely annoying. I have tried blowing out the compartment using compressed air and have even tried a vacuum cleaner nozzle. This seems to work for a brief period, but eventually the noise starts up again. The laptop is almost three years old, and has been used in mostly residential conditions and has also seen some office use. It has never been used in very dusty environments, and it has been regularly vacuumed clean of any dust that may be visibly present. Is it possible that after about 3 years of use, the cooling fans would have gone bad or is it something else that is easily resolved.
