Yesterday I upgraded the memory in my NetVista 830761U, from a single 512MB DIMM to 2 1GB DIMMs. The performance is definitely better but now the fan is making a horrendous racket every time we crank up an app on it, whether it's light like Firefox or heavy like WoW. The fan will start up like an airplane, first low then getting louder then it peaks with a warbling effect (WaaawaaaWaaawaaaWaaawaaa.....). After another 10 mins or so it will calm down to a low rRrRrRrRrR....then just stop. But then a minute or so later it cranks right back up.

This is not just annoying, the PC is in my home office and when the fan does that it totally messes with my work. I can't focus or nothing. It even has given me a headache or two.

Is this a result of adding two 1GB DIMMs? Do I need to upgrade the power supply or add a cooling unit? I need to do something NOW or I'll downgrade it ASAP.

Pleaes HELP!!!!

Check the fan and heat sink didn't become loose on the cpu during the ram install process.

Gosh, I'm sucha n00b! A ribbon cable and wire bundle came out of their tucked away spot and were touching the heat sink fan. I tucked them back into place and it's nice and quiet again.

thanks much for the fast reply!
