Too much noise on bootup

Hi,

My PC makes lot of noise on boot-up. It ceases only when I restart the system.

What could be the possible cause? Please advise.

Thanks,
Prati

  1. Check for dust in CPU fan, system fans, PSU fan and GPU fans.

    Also check that cables are not being caught in fans.

    Tighten screws that mount the hard disk and ODD.
  2. What kind of noise is it making? It seems hunuok has poseted the most logical first steps, if it is that type of noise.
  3. Thanks for your responses.

    I found that screws mounting the HDD were a bit loose. I tightened them. Now there is NO FREQUENT noise on boot up. However this is heard seldom.
  4. Good to hear you sorted most of your problems.

    I purchased rubber washers to help dampen vibrations from HDD/ODD and fans.

    There was noise on bootup even after tightening the screws[mounting the HDD]. It's actually SMPS fan that is making sound. What's the solution?
