Please describe the sound as best as you can. Is it grinding, ticking, etc?

You should check to make sure your fans inside your computer are working correctly and are running. The sound may also be coming from your harddrive, if this is the case you may need to replace these parts.

A grinding sound usually means a fan problem. Listen carefully to the PSU fan and see if that's it, If not, open up the computer and listen carefully to the other fan(s), as well as other moving parts such as the hard drive in there. Remember to not touch anything inside the computer without anti-static protection.

I didn't read Salmocreative's post b4 posting............Sorry :thumbsup:

Hi, sir.

i opened up the PC. and listened to all parts for the compuer and the fun is ok. but i found out that the grinding sound is from the Hard drive. i touched the hard drive with a piece of paper and on the other end put it between by teeth. the sound is Definitely from the Hard drive.

Hi Mocca

This could possibly mean that your hardrive is very close to dying. First, you should back up your important data There are a couple of ways of doing this. How often do you Defrag you're Hard Drive? if not often, Defrag it and see how it sounds.

To be on the safe side, try not to use the computer as much as possible until you back up what you want to save

If you want to know once and for all what state your hard drive is in, there is a bootable diagnostic tool called Drive Fitness Test that will put your drive through a full diagnostic check.
