Noise is related to moving parts.

Fan - could be your CPU fan.. if so get it fixed ASAP as to ensure you do not damage your CPU.

Could also be your Power Supply Fan - which is very common, if this fails then your Power Supply will fail and need to be replaced.

Most of the time it is a build up of dirt and dust stuck inside the case on the components.

Have someone with some PC Knowledge clean it out for you with some compressed air.

Hard Drive - could be a clicking noise that indicates a failing Hard Drive, i would perform a few disk checks to see the status of the drive and most importantly BACK UP your DATA, so you dont loose anything important if your drive fails.

Post back with a description of the noise if you can.

Good Luck.

Noise coming from the motherboard is likely a fan or something mechanical on the processor, I would guess.

Normally, motherboards make no sounds, except maybe a beep if there is a fatal error, but that's due to incompatible components plugged in to the motherboard, or burnt out components on the motherboard.

My Sony vaio pcv-62 desktop will not turn on.. Please tell me why and send a solution to fix the problem.. Thanks

if you get beeping from the PC it is probably video problem. If it won't even turn on, no lights, beeping, or anything, it's either the power source or motherboard. either of the first two = $20-$30. motherboard is $100-$200

Do you hear fan starting noise? If you dont hear any noise most probably you need new power supply.
you can buy cheap power supply from
if you hear the fan noise!
Does you motherboard starting with POST (a beep noise).
if you dont hear. well you need a new motherboard which should be compatible with your other peripherals.
if you hear a beep noise! Most probably your operating system is corrupted. (Boot file corrupted)
in this case you may have to install new operating system.

Thank you
