Wow thanks for that lightning fast response.
Having had a look inside the machine as it was running, i think the main noise comes from one of the fans. The hard drive area does vibrate after a couple of minutes after powering on. I usually resolve this by just 'squeezing' the sides of the machine. This is because i had to have a new hard drive installed in December after the last one 'went kaput' so to speak, and it has done that more or less ever since it was installed. Though Im sure the hard drive is a little louder than has been.
The noise is not deafening or anything like that. Just that when something has gone wrong before, like on mine, you notice these things more. Oh, the machine itself is nearly 2 years old.
