An easy way to eliminate computer noise

Good and clean computer equipment makes noise during operation, but it is so insignificant that it looks like a breath. The same cannot be said for PCs and laptops that need to be cleaned, lubricated or repaired. Noise should not distract the user during his work. Therefore, you need to know what is causing it and how to fix the problem quickly.

There are three main causes of computer noise:

• pollution;

• wear on the main parts;

• fat production in one of the coolers.

It is difficult for a person who is not a computer professional to determine the real cause of the problem. If there is time and desire, it is of course best to contact a service center. But in this article, I will tell a way that helped me remove annoying noise before the computer master arrived.

I will immediately note that this is not a panacea and in time the noise will return. This is a temporary measure that helps facilitate the user’s existence until the arrival of a service center employee.

Step 1. Initially, we need to listen to the computer and establish a noise source. A lot of details can make a noise. My noise provoked the cooler of the power supply. This is what it looks like.

You can also see that the radiator is dusty and needs to be cleaned, but unfortunately it is better for someone who has never opened the power supply to remove dirt or to lubricate it completely himself.

Step 2. We cannot remove dirt that has accumulated in the fan completely, without disconnecting the power supply, we cannot. But you can lubricate the computer. To do this you will need: a syringe (two), motor oil and a dry sponge

I will immediately clarify: choose a syringe with a small needle and you can only use oil for sewing and household appliances as a lubricant. The ideal computer grease is, of course, thermal grease. It is thick, does not spread and maintains the working condition of all PC parts for a long time. But in this case, you can do without it.

Step 3. Go directly to remote lubrication. We collect some engine oil into the syringe.

Now back to our cooler. The fan axis is easily visible behind the iron net. It is covered with a golden sticker. Carefully pierce the sticker with a needle in several places and introduce the oil.
