How long does it take to go to normal - Has the Room Temperature become somewhat cooler lately –
Fan Speeds are usually are under Temp control – and when it is cooler – Fans tend to make more noise when at slower speeds – and then as CPU heats up – The fans quiet down at the higher speeds –
Also the jarring could have damaged the bearings and give this symptom/indication – also if it is a desktop with fan in rear – the filter could be pushed into blades of fan or a blade may have a slight crack
Loud Humming Sound is usually attributed to [Starting Torque] – A clicking sound is attributed to [Foreign object in Blades]
Just what is [tipped over a little from my computer desk] mean – how many inches – Was it on its side and fell down – [Just curious] –
First, I would like to thank you and everybody for taking the time to help me out.
To answer your questions in order:
- To go back to normal, I didn't keep track of the time since I woke up not ten minutes before I turned on my computer, but I would estimate it to be about... maybe five minutes. It could be less or more.
- No, the room temperature has pretty much been the same for the past month. The incident didn't start happening until a couple of days ago.
- It didn't fall down. It wasn't much of a big deal. Facing the computer, you'd say it tipped to its left just a little bit. I'd say about a fourth to half a centimeter. It's nothing major, but I said it simply because it may have been a variable. The way it happened is like this:
My computer stands on four stubs that are about half a centimeter tall. These stubs that are located on the four corners at the bottom of my case support the computer. When I turned the computer to plug in something into the USB drive located at the back of the computer, two of the stubs tipped over off of the desk. The computer didn't fall over or anything because the computer was about.. an inch and a half over the end, which is what caused the stubs to leave the desk and the computer to slightly dip and hit the edge a bit. Like I said, it's not a big deal, but it may have been a variable because it did impact slightly.
On another note, my computer has been running since this morning. It's been about eleven hours since I started it up and got past the humming sound. Nothing went wrong, so I don't think it's much of a concern. Of course, I have had bad experiences with this computer in the past, so I am pessimistic about the subject of my computer. That's why I wanted to run it by you guys first.
