    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).

    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? :confused:
    Had same problem on my tower over Easter - Power Source cooling fan was knackered - new power source, £20.

    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...
