Hey My computer used to not do this, but now when I have a lot of stuff running, my computer sounds like its going to explode, i dont know what is making the noise, my guess is the fan is blowing like crazy.

It does this like crazy, especially when I play games...

Thanks,

Justin Fox

If you are lucky, it is just a fan and not the fan in the power supply. Fans are cheap and easy to replace. Just remove it, go to your local computer parts store and get a fan with similar specs (CFM).
If it is the power supply fan, you'll have to do a bit of work to get it out of your computer's case. Again, go to your local retailer and get one with similar specs (watts) and remember to plug in everything you unplugged.

thanks man,

Yeah I asked a friend of mine and he said that my processor fan is either going bad, or just needs to be blasted with some "can-o-air". Either way, thanks for the tip.
