Computer is really loud when plugged into the power source then when i press the power button it calms down.
Its been like this since i got it from my friend.
I haven't installed any software or hardware.
When i plug in the power cord to the power supply, the computer is really loud(The fans inside are) once i press the power button it calms down and the computer boots up normally. When the computer is turned on its turned off automatically out of no where. It had windows vista installed and it had some programs and decided to just install a nice fresh copy of Windows Vista the process was going well until it got to "Expanding files 66%" then it turned off and the computer fans where still on(by the way this happens every time it was on and when it turned off out of nowhere). So i decided ill try to install Windows 7 and it was successful. Once i saw it was successful i tried to re-install Windows Vista again on a different portion of the Hard Drive and it failed once again.
When i try to turn the computer on again by pressing the power button, the computer does not turn on. I have to unplug and re plug the cable in order for it to turn on again.
