My Acer PC make a lot of whirring noise at start

My Acer PC makes a lot of whirring noise at start up and then gets quieter when in operation. How do I tell if its the fan on the motherboard or the power supply and could it be on it's way out?
I have cleaned both as best I could with airduster, but this has not made any it any better, sounds like its struggling when I first boot up.

CDR 2005 VDO makes a whirring noise when being used - how can I fix this?


If the whirring noise goes up and down based on engine speed then it is a weak ground connection. Also, if you have amps (I have a Kicker mono-block running a cheap MTX 2 by 10" subs,and Kicker 4 channel amp running 4 kicker speakers). I promise I won't say "Kicker" one more time!
I have a whirring noise too just like yours. There are a lot of electronics and wireless devices in modern cars these days that are going to interfere with your audio electronics...especially cell phones operating through the audio system. I can't stress that enough. Cell phones operate through powerful towers which is why they can be so tiny. As you talk the whirring will go up and down based on Tranter level and distance to tower. Hope this helps. I have 1000 watts, so it tends to drown out any minor whirring. LOL.

My vacuum is making a loud whirring sound and is hotter than normal.


Hi Kelsey! I understand how frustrating this must be. Dirty filters or a clog can cause the vacuum to change sound and be hotter than normal.

Here is a quick link to troubleshooting the excessive noise:

Why does my Acer laptop sound like it's taking off ! There is a whirring noise form underneath on the back left, i thought it might be the fan but it starts as soon as i turn it on but after some time it...


Hi Ian check to see that you have not left a CD disc in the CD rom /dvd drive--- sometimes they will cause this sort of noise on start up when the computer is looking for an operating system it may look in the cd drive first and scan the non operating system disc before booting from the hard drive

I hope this helps

GE Harmony Dryer makes Loud Vibrating noise


If you can open the walls of the dryer up check all screws and bolts that hold things together. Some times they will vibrate loose causing parts to make a vibrating sound against the frame itself.. Eventually the loose screws will just keep getting looser. Even the screws on the walls of the unit should be tightened That could cause a lot of noise.

Xbox 360 makes revving sound when starting and loading


It's not likely to be the fans. The DVD drive makes a loud whirring noise. If you have the NXE dashboard you can install games to the hard drive so the DVD doesn't have to get up to speed, which means the Xbox will be quieter and you'll have faster loading times.
