Around eight months ago, my computer started being very noisy. The noise is pretty much like the computer operating normally, but just very loudly, or that the fans are working with some extra noise. If the computer is shut off for an hour or so and then turned back on, it initially runs properly and quietly. After a few minutes, the noise gradually increases, until it's back at its maximum level. This happens even if I don't log on to my account, and I just sit at the screen where you choose who you want to log on as. Everything in terms of software seems to be working normally, but this noise is really annoying. It's loud enough that you can be in nearby rooms and still hear the machine running.
My operating system is Windows XP.
So far, I have taken the computer apart, and cleaned out all of the dust and other junk in the fans. That didn't solve anything.
