Question ID: 285341
I just bought a Compaq Presario 2100 notebook with a celeron processor 2.4 GHz and there is one thing bothers me-the cooling fan runs so often when I use the computer. The fan starts to work after a short time stop again and again. My old notebook was not like that. Is it a problem or it is just normal? should I return it? thanks.

Hi, Thank you for your question. Your laptop has a thermal controlled fan. When it heats up, the fan will start spinning to cool it down. Your old notebook probably had a fan that ran all the time albeit quieter. Now the bad news, after looking at several reviews, this seems normal for the model you purchased, it does not seem to be a fault. The best you could do is to try and change the fan yourself for a quieter version but this would invalidate your warranty.

Sorry this answer isn't more optimistic. If you require anymore help or clarifications please do not hesitate to ask.
