My computer does the same thing. it's my fan, when i play games or do disc cleanup the fan gets REALLY loud I'm running windows xp Professional Version 2002 service pack 3 pentium 4, 3.40 Ghz 1.00 GB of RAM
Does anybody know how to get it to quiet down. I got it from a professor at Northern Arizona University. When i asked him about it he said it was probably a bad fan so he sent me a new one. No difference. then he said it might be the power source. so he sent me another power source and another fan. Still no difference. Does anyone else have an opinion???
And yes it did have a bunch of dust balls and stuff in it i cleaned it yesterday i had to scrape it off of the back and fan etc. My computer temp is 27 degrees i found that out when i downloaded the speedfan. but the speedfan couldn't find my fan. it only found my hardrive. i have a fan on my video card too and it didn't find that either or the power fan.
