My computer sounds roughly half as loud as a vacuum cleaner. Occasionally it gets a lot worse (vacuum cleaner standard), and then sometimes you can't hear it at all (quick! turn it off!!! processor... melting... must... sw-it-ch... off. . . . pow. . . w. . . w. . . werrrr. . . rrrrr).
Had same problem on my tower over Easter - Power Source cooling fan was knackered - new power source, £20.

My computer has, out of nowhere, started making a very strange noise. The desktop unit is whirring/grinding very loudly; for want of a technical explanation, it sounds like someone drilling on a building site
Sometimes the whirring noise is very fast and then other times it dies down or almost stops altogether, then builds up... argh! Anyone know what this could be?
It went on all evening but now, bizarrely, is silent again. As long as that means it's unlikely to be the HD, I'm happy Thanks for all the advice guys...
