Noisy Computer.

5 posts in this topic

Family complaining about a high pitched screech coming from the computer, I can't hear it my ears are shot.

Opened it up gave everything a good clean, checked all the fans, 6 in total, cleaned them, seem ok.

Any ideas.

Try disconnecting the power to the fans in turn to see if it makes any difference.

 

If not the fans it could be a vibration coming from the power supply module.

 

Or the hard drive is on the way out.

Sounds like the hard drive could be on the way out, make back up's NOW, before it's too late

Thanks for advice.

Yesterday, checking out fans, noticed power supply unit (psu) fan jerky, then it came to a stop. Before I could turn things off, there was an almighty 'POP' and the smell of fried circuitry, bollocks.

Fitted new psu this morning and at the moment things looking ok.
