I have an Acer x3400 and after a couple of months started
making this horrible noise coming from one of the fans, at the time I solved it
by hitting the bottom of the case, thinking that it was the case vibrating, it
worked for a while, but it was not the case, as I found out the hard way it was
the power supply fan jamming/overheating and by lightly hitting the bottom of
the case I was setting the fan back in place. Long story short, moved my
hardware out of the stock case, got a new power supply, decked out the new case
with a ton of red LED fans, added 16 G's of Mushkin Silverline RAM and a 2
Terabyte Seagate Barracuda Hard drive along with a 1TB Western Digital for
backup. It's as quiet as a door mouse :) I run my PC pretty hard though out of
the 2-3 years I have had it, it's only gotten about an hour or two of downtime
so hardware failure is expected but besides the power supply, I really haven't
had any. But I have automatic backups set to run every 5 hours and duplicates
of the backups going to my NAS so bring it on. Anyway I like to run off into
little tangents like these, I don't know if anyone finds them informative but
back to the point. Replace the power supply; see if the noise stops, if not
replace CPU cooling tower, if the problem still persists and you have a case
fan change that out too. But in all likely hoods it's the power supply. They're
pretty cheap and easy to install so threes no reason not to and everything else
I'm talking about is tooJ.
