Re: computer making loud noises?
Noises in a PC are one of two things, fans or hard drives, as those are the only two constantly moving parts. Optical drives can be noisy, but they don't do it all the time.
So you either have a bad bearing in a fan, or you have a motor going bad in your hard drive.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!
I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
