I don't know what actually happened but when I plugged in my CPU this morning, it was making very odd sounds. I opened it up to find my System Fan spinning faster than normal and making a huge amount of noise...after a minute it just stops and I have to work with only the CPU fan on. Temperatures are rising intensely. Is it some power supply problem or is something wrong with the fan?Please reply...

If everything else works fine on your pc then I would guess that its not a power supply problem, but a dead fan. You should be able to buy a new one at most pc shops.

The fan is not dead actually...it works for a minute after xp loads and then it stops.

Ok, maybe i should read more carefully:) Im assuming that the fan plugs into the motherboard, not directly into the power supply. Is this correct? If it does, check in your bios. Some have a health section where you can monitor temp and fan speed.

A fan either works or it doesn't
It sounds like the bearings are failing in the fan.
Sooner or later it will just freeze up
