Hi jeromed681,

Most noise problems arise from moving parts, unless of course something's frying on your CPU or GPU!!!

This means one of your cooling fans (one or all of 3: power supply fan, cpu fan or gpu fan) have either gone faulty, or have dust/dirt lodged in them and need cleaning. If you can replace it easily, that shoudl do the trick, but if you're a hands-on person, I would suggest to open up the case and have a look inside. Sometimes all it may be is the fan hitting a loose cable.

Dell optiplex gx270 shuts down when cpu setting is on normal but runs when on compatible mode


The GX270 has a manufacturers defect with the motherboard. Open up the case and look at the capacitors, they look like a bunch of upsidedown double AA batteries sticking out of the board. The capacitors on the GX270 are bad if you see a crust on them or some kind of brown liquid, DO NOT TOUCH this it is battery acid.

Loud "jet engine taking off" type sound


If you changed out the power supply then the only other device that could be making that noise is your CPU cooling fan. To be sure, open the case and disconnect the CPU cooling fan plug from the motherbrd (MAKE SURE POWER IS OFF) and see if the noise stops. Don’t worry about the “Fan Failure Error” when you turn on the computer. Just hit F1 to continue. Don’t leave the computer running without the fan plugged in longer then necessary. After tying this procedure, please contact me for further diagnosis.
