i just installed a NEW FAN in my compaq to try and get rid of a fan noise. when ever my fan starts running my computer starts making a whinning noise. i thought it iwas my fan. i tried the bios update thing and when i am in bios the fan runs normal and quiet however when i am on line using my computer the fan makes a whinning noise and doesnt seem to run that fast. i am wondering if this a programing issue. does anyone have any advice

How are ya 40vern?

Well first off, compaq's fans seem to do that as a friend of mine complains of the same symptoms.

We can first check by running Speedfan from here.

Take a screen shot of the program in action and post the screen shot here.

when its open press the button:print scrn/sysrq" on the keyboard. then open paint, click "file" "paste", then upload it to imageshack or photobucket and post the image code link here :whistling:

If that does not work, when you have the program open, press ALT + PRINTSCREEN

Then open paint and save the file. Than upload with one of your picture uploading programs or use geeks to go uploader.

For the fan, is this a case fan or a processor fan?

it is the fan that came inside the fan. i only have one. if course i did not know this until i read the manual when i replaced the fan. but i am not sure what you would call this fan though, as you can tell i am not very good with computers however i was able to take the computer all apart to replace the fan with the book.

So you can understand, was the fan over a big shiny metal thing (which is called a heatsink) that is attached to the motherboard?

Did you add nice thermal paste to the processor? I think that is causing the whole issue here.

The reason for that is because after awhile, thermal paste on a processor dries out and causes the processor to be more intensively hot and puts a lot of stress on the fan to keep it nice and cool. Try taking off the heatsink and processor , and apply nice fresh thermal paste to it.
