Good day.
I use a Biostar MCP6PB M2+ motherboard, and I have a Galaxy cooler (don't know build) on my NVIDIA G100 video card.

Problem is this: every time I start my computer the cooler fan is very loud.
In order to fix this, I restart the computer by the power switch (not reset), and the noise disappears instantly.
What seems to happen is this: if the cooler gets power while not in motion, it'll make this loud noise which will persist for as long as I use the computer. If it gets power while it is still rotating, it won't make any noise.
How can I fix this, is it a hardware problem, or are some BIOS voltage settings messed up? Thank you.

Its fairly normal for a graphics card fan to spin at 100% at start up, It usualy does this for just a few seconds and then goes back to normal speed. Nothing to worry about.

Unfortunately those "few seconds" last for as long as I use the computer.
And it didn't do this on the day I bought it.
It was loud sporadically, and now there's 100% chance it'll be loud when I start my PC.
