Slow and Loud

My PC is really slow, and it also gets really really loud to the point I can hear it in other rooms. It takes around 15 mins to completely start up, too.

What is the problem with loud noise when it comes to ears? Can it really do damage or is that just a story made up by people who hate loud music?

It’s actually been medically proven that prolonged
exposure to loud music and loud sounds can damage hearing in the long run.
Obviously trauma to the ear from something like an explosion can cause
immediate hearing loss, but music etc is more likely to cause a slow

It’s highly recommended to use ear protection when
engaging in very loud level activities such as mowing the lawn.
A study has also shown that listening to music while
exercising can cause further damage to hearing as the blood flow during
exercise is diverted from our ears to our arms, legs and heart – making the
ears more vulnerable to noise.

Whistling Noise whilst driving

As with all unusable vehicle noise complaints it is important that the noise be listened to first hand, so have a shop test drive this with you on board to point out the noise to them when you hear it start in your vehicle

PC boots up very slowly and fan is very loud. Once up, it powers off after about 15 mins or so of use. Replaced power supplt last year.

If this is a name brand system like DELL it probably needs to have the CPU heatsink cleaned, and put new thermal grease between the heatsink and CPU.
It's slow because it's speed stepping the CPU to a lower speed because of overheating.
The heatsink grease is almost always the issue here.

99vw beetle gets really loud past 40mph, like a

Sounds like something is caught up inside or outside the engine/transmission where a part is grinding from something reciprocating. Does the sound happen when you apply the gas without the car moving? If the sound only happens while moving then it could be suspension or transmission related. If it only happens with or without the car moving as long as you control the gas then it's probably in the engine or transmission related. Could also be a wheel bearing issue, that will be a humming sound inside the cabin. As you speed up the pitch increases and the opposite happens when you slow down.
