Hello aneleopolski,

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.

You need to do a chkdsk on this and see what comes up with that. This will check all of the partitions. It may be that the drive is bad. On start up you can hit f10 and perform a disc scan as well.

Loading too much


Hi. I'll give some ways how to lessen the loading of your computer.

1. Do a disk cleanup everyday.
2. Once a week do a defragmentation to your computer.
3. Delete files that you don't need anymore to have a big disk space.
4. Before using your computer, scan it with your anti-virus.
5. Try to upgrade your memory. Maybe your memory is lower than 1GB.

My computer will not boot, what is the problem


Sounds like the power supply in the computer. You'd have to try substituting another.

Computer wont stay started


most likely its an over heating problem

most of the time when the computer (CPU) is overheating the computer will shut down by itself to prevent the (CPU) from damaging.

so all you need to do either clean the fans (internal and external fans). or maybe you will need to replace them.
