Question about PC Desktops
It could be that there is something obstructing the fan, as this is the major source for noise from a PC.
If you know how, open the side panel of the PC cabinet and inspect the fan. Make sure the fan grille is not dented or touching the fan in any way. Also make sure that the fan is in an exact upright position, as even a slight tilt can cause the fan to create a noise.
Make sure there are no loose parts in the cabinet, small pieces of plastic, loose screws, etc. Also make sure that when you replace the cabinet panel, there are no wires touching the fan grille. If there are wires running around the fan, try to tape them together and to the panel away from the fan.
Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.
