PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:Windows ME   Dell computer
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:


Sometimes I am hardly aware that my computer is on but other times when I enter the room, I can hear the CPU.....almost like it's running real fast or something, and yet I am not on using it.  What's the reason for that?  I even made sure that it wasn't in the midst of an automatic scan or something, but it wasn't.

Hi,

Sometimes the CPU and/or chassis fan gets dusty and starts making noise. At first the noise may be intermitent. I would verify all fans are spinning properly, if you feel comfortable opening the case.

If the problem is indeed a fan, replace it.

Thanks for the information about the possibility of a dusty fan or chassis.  I am taking my computer for a checkup this week and will see what the technician has to report.  I will let you know.  I don't want to sound like a broken record, but again...you sure have a great site!  Your help is so very much appreciated.  Thank you!
