The other day I clicked the mouse button to wake up my computer that had been in sleep mode for probably a day or more. I don't remember ever having a problem. But after waking it with mouse click the what I believe to be as the fan started being louder than I had ever heard it and stated that way until I shut down. It must have been going as fast as it could go and spinning hard cause it sounded like there was so much stress from it being so loud it made me think it would break. Thing is everytime I wake it from sleep mode it does this now. Also every other time I shut down and turn on computer it is that loud as well with times in between it's normal sounding.

usually, if the fan is kicking on full speed its because the system is running hot. Download Coretemp, and tell me what your temperatures are. It could also be a malfunctioning fan or BIOS error, but lets look at the temps first.

Which fan is it?  Case fan?  CPU Fan?  Could be that the bearings in the Fan are going bad then you just gotta replace it.  If the temps are in the appropriate level, and the computer does not shut down due to overheating then check the fan itself.

Ok will download coretemp and will see which fan it is. I'm not great at knowing computer parts.

How do I tell which fan is which? I believe there is a fan that is part of my graphics card. Is there a fan that's part of the power supply?

What about a sleep settings problem? The fans and sounds are normal EVERY OTHER time I start up the computer. It's happened in the past where it gets real loud but it corrects itself and it always happened and this time too when I clicked mouse to get out of sleep mode.
