Hi. My computer has been acting very odd recently. I installed a new 512MB Raedon Graphics card. After a while, about 2 weeks, it started making whirring noises, amlost like it was about to explode or overheat. I kept turning it off, letting it cool down in case it was overheating, and it still happened. So I checked the fans to see if a wire was caught in it, because my brother had the same issue when he installed the graphics card, but the fans all seemed fine. It doesn't seem to be doing it at the moment, I'm running a MBAM scan for spyware removal issue on another forum, and I keep thinking that it might do this again during the scan, and I was afraid to leave it on when it was doing this. I checked the internal components on it today, everything seems in order, but it starts up slightly noisier for about 3 seconds when I power it on. Any suggestions as to what might be causing this? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
