  1. have you ever opened it and blown out the dust?
  2. Dear Pat
    I HAD THE PSU FAN CHANGED 8 WEEKS AGO BY THE DOCTOR AND CLEANED
    WHEN I FIRST SWITCH IT ON IT IS QUITE BUT AS I USE THE PC MORE AND MORE IT GETS LOUDER AND LOUDER EXPECIALLY WHEN I LOOK AT DIFFERENT SITES PUT IT THIS WAY IT IS DOING MY HEAD IN AND I AM DEAF LOL
    CHEERS
  3. Pop the side of the tower off, and try to determine where the noise is coming from.
  4. As far as i can make out it is coming from behind the usb ports ( WEAR ALL THE CABLES GO IN ) ps i wear hearing aids
  5. Is there a case fan right there? Or does it sound like it's coming from the PSU fan (likely right above those ports).
  6. ITS DEFO NOT THE PSU AT THE TOP BUT COMING FROM BEHIND THE PORTS IT LOOKS LIKE A CASE
  7. If you've got speakers plugged in, try unplugging those. It may be interference.
  8. I took the speaker lead out altogether and it is still the same
  9. Is there a fan on the tower in that area? If yes, blow the dust out of it, then apply a small amount of silicon oil (or something similar) in the fan.
  10. ok will do and let you know to morrow
    cheers
  11. hi there
    I did what you said and it it is still there but not as loud
    thanks friend
  12. It sounds like the fan is going bad. If it gets too bad, it can be replaced. Case fans cost ~$10.
  13. will make a appointment with the doctor
    thanks
  14. You're welcome
