Question about Targa ProEdit T3K 6221A PC Desktop
Unhealthy noise when starting - disappears after several minutes - cooling fan?
Please DO NOT spray any type of silicon or grease on your fan !
These types of spray ATTRACT dust and will acrually make the issue worse.
Your fan speeds up and slows down in response to temperature inside the computer. More so the CPU.
I would suggest getting a can of compressed air made for computers
take it outside, take of the side and blow all the gunk out of there, Really go to town around the fan (you might want to wear eye protection)
While you are in there just check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose
If it is it will have to be re-seated.
If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem they have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on ($2-5)
DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.
You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off with anything metalic (fingernails are OK). Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.
DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU
Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)
Be careful about how much you put on
Here are some basic instructions
Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.
If everything went to plan you should now be back in business

Your cooling fan has dust on it. clean and spray some silicone or even spray and cook should solve it, check to see if fan guard has not been banged and fan catches on this guaqrd>
