Question about Packard Bell PC Desktops
The post begs for the obvious answer: Replace the fan.
Now to be more polite, first you need to identify the failing fan and replace it.
A desktop system can have several fans. Case/processor fan (you can test to see if this is the effected fan by unplugging it for a minute or two from the motherboard (a couple minutes will not hurt the system).
The video card may have a fan on it (Often on the underside if a mini tower) Some video card fans can be easily removed but finding replacement fans can be a challenge. Normally if a video card fan fails, replace the video card.
Most often, the failing fan is in the power supply unit or PSU. If you are handy with electrical components, you can remove the PSU, remove the fan and replace it. If you are not handy electrically, replace the PSU.
Higher end system may have card cage fans to help cool hard drive/expansion cards and others have fans specifically to coll hard drives.
Most manufacturers have spare parts where you can buy parts or you can use google to find specific replacement parts or fan suppliers.
