Packard Bell Laptop Making a loud noise

  suburban train 18:05 01 Feb 2009

Hi All,

I have two laptops , a packard bell and a Dell.

The packard bell laptop keeps making a loud nose as the fan is always on which is quite loud!

The Dell Laptop is a silent as a mouse!

Does anyone have any tips to stop the fan from coming on all the time?!

It maybe the fan is breaking down if its noisy, if its on all the time it must be for a reason, your lappy is getting too hot.. housekeeping (dust removal) your lappy may help...

Well its bath time so i may put in there for a long soak!

Didnt know you could you a hoover on vents! Is that safe?

quite safe, more so than removing panels and rummaging around inside, but you still might have to do that if fan persists to be noisy...
