I turned on my computer this morning and it suddenly started to make a loud buzzing sound. It wasn't doing this last night. As far as I know everything is in working order on my computer. The buzzing sound seems to be coming from around the floppy disk drive. I tired looking into it to see if maybe something got shoved in there but it doesn't look like it, and I even tried cleaning out the inside of the computer thinking it would help, but I still have the VERY ANNOYING buzzing sound. I have a dell dimension 4500 if that helps any. Can any one think of a solution to my problem? Thanks!

Well, if you don't use the floppy drive, and you're sure that's what it is, just take it out or unplug it from power.

OF COURSE you have to unplug the computer and press the power button to drain all power before doing this!!
