Troubleshooting A Noisy Laptop

Laptops are a convenient tool, but sometimes, a couple of problems show up. One annoying thing that happens to these gadgets is a noisy sound. It can be intermittent or continuous whenever you power it on.

Normally, this is due to the fan trying to cool down the laptop. The louder it roars, the hotter your laptop is, and you need to fix that issue. Here are some of the things you could try out.

Dust the Fan

Sometimes the fan works too hard because of the dust in it. Turn to the underneath of the laptop and using a soft brush, swipe across the individual gaps. These are the fan gaps. Any presence of dust would prevent the heat from being properly eliminated, thereby making it less efficient.

You could also try opening it up and dusting the fan from the inside. However, different brands are designed differently, so you'll need your manufacturer's manual. You could also get a step-by-step video tutorial over the internet. All you need to have is a tiny screw driver and gentle hands. You could additionally dust out the heat sink. Most manufacturers use copper tubes that direct to this part, so finding them shouldn't be a hard task.

Kill your Computer Processes

The CPU (Computer Processer Unit) is the laptop's brain, and it carries out all the instructions and calculations that happen in a laptop. It's normally the main source of heat. You may have installed an application that runs too many heavy processes in the background that cause the heating.

Hit your start button and search for the Task Manager. There, you'll be able to see all your processes. You'll even see the resources (memory, CPU, and disk usage) they use. You can disable a process by selecting it and then clicking Disable.

You can also find the processes that run immediately on powering it on. If your laptop gets noisy on start-up, then kill some of the processes that run immediately once it boots by clicking the Start-up tab and disabling them.

Get a Cooling Fan

Laptops come packed with so much power and come in smaller sizes. A cooling fan could assist the laptop in keeping the temperatures low so that your fan doesn't have to work so hard. You simply place your laptop on top of it and connect the cooler via a USB clot.
