Question about HP Pavilion 515n (DC471A#ABA) PC Desktop
The PC sometimes sounds like a fan is overworking (starts as a low hum but then turns into a loud buzzy kind of noise) and it doesn't happen all the time. i also lost the sound around the same time this happened. do you think it's the power supply fan or the processor fan? i'm not familiar with the guts of an HP but will **** it up & open it with your guidance!
thanks for any and all assistance!
If you don't want to replace the fan, you can simply pull the plastic sticker label off the back, put a little WD-40 or sewing machine oil on in with the fan both off or on to get the lubricant in the bearings, then wipe off the oil around the surface and cut a piece of electrical tape to cover it from dust in the bearing. It will run good for years then.

It is most likely the processor fan which is getting busted or dirty.
Open the machine after having it unplugged and blow it all dut in machine and from both fans. Clean the fans with a soft brush and see if that works. Otherwise you will have to replace it. But normally it is just dirt
