Depending on how old the unit is, the hard drive may have failed. if you take this unit to well known repair shop ,if they are good they should be able get most of your files if not all of them . do not try to do anything yourself , it takes a person who knows what they doing to do this.

Some computers can be slow or short of hard drive space for quite simple reasons.
Windows and other program hide temporary files in lots of different places
The best option is not always a program or utility and if you want to do as much as you can for FREE like I do then you have a few options.
 
1. First you need to be in windows explorer.
 
2. Click TOOLS and FOLDER OPTIONS
 
3. Now click the VIEW tab
 
4. Tick the Show Hidden Files And Folders option
Unpick Hide Protected Operating System Files (it may warn you but you can ignore it)
 
5. Click APPLY then OK
 
6. NOTE some files may not delete this is OK Also DO NOT DELETE the folder itself where mentioned for cleaning.
 
7. Using windows explorer go into the WINDOWS folder and look for a directory called TEMP (it is possible there may be more than one)
 
8. Select all the contents and delete them. Do the same for any other temp folder e.g. temp000
 
9. Now navigate to Documents and Settings
There are quite a few folders in here that can be cleaned up
 
10. Look for folders named "Local Settings" In there you will find more TEMP folders that can be cleaned out
 
11. Now look inside the Temporary Internet Files. Delete anything EXCEPT cookies. Otherwise passwords for some sites you have stored may need you to type the password again.
 
12. Do this for each user / profile you see.
 
13. Now check the C: drive itself and see if there are any Temp folders and clean those out too
 
To prevent accidental deletion of any files windows needs you should go back to step (4) and change the two settings back to their original
 
Hope this gives you the information you need

Fan/ engine whining sound


If the fan is only making wind noise it is ok. If it is making matalic noise replace fan. It would be a good idea to clean (blow)out the dust and dirt for the inside of the computer at this time.

HDD making clicking noise/will not boot into windows


the clicking noise will be the platelettes or the head trying to park inside the hardrive. there isn't a lot you can do ;if you can no longer boot into windows, the hard drive will need replacing and you may not be able to see anything from it unless you have a usb to ide cable adapter to view any files. You may be able to retrieve your important documents from it by fitting the drive as a slave drive after you have installed the new one as a master.
