Shefin :

The internal fan is for your CPU.

Shefin :

We cannot disable it.

Customer:

boo

Shefin :

If you disable it, the computer will get overheated and stop working.

Customer:

ya. sounds right

Shefin :

You still want to stop it?

Customer:

can't i cool it in another way?

Shefin :

Can you open the computer case, remove all the dust inside it?

Customer:

the dust?

Shefin :

Yes.

Shefin :

Inside the computer, there will be dusts that causes the fan to get slow or sounds.

Customer:

i could try. it's the blade of a fan that's hitting. it started suddenly one day. not a slow change.

Shefin :

Check if there anything blocks the fan to move. May be some wires or anything.

ARe you sure that it is the fan?

Can you open the computer case and clean it?

Only do it, if you are sure that you can do it.
