Error Messages:



I have had this pc about 1 1/2 years,about 6 months from new,the fan made noise when pc started up,eventually the pc wouldnt turn on and the dealer replaced the power supply,now for a few weeks,it is beginning to make a noise when 1st started again and lasts about 5 min then goes away and runs perfect for the next 10 hours until I shut down and back on again the next morning.
Is my power supply going to fail again and is there a particular defect with the power supply and fan in this model?
Thanks for any help;)

Hi,

Fans start making noise when dust builds up in your system. Go to your local PC shop and buy a can of compressed air to clean out the dust from your system. Usually when fans start making noise they eventually fail and then your system overheats, damaging the hardware. Make sure it is indeed the power supply fan making noise and try to clean it but sounds to me like the fan may need to be replaced.

What I do is stick a pen or something that fits in the back of the system where the power supply is to hold the fan in place (so it doesn't spin), power up the system and if the noise stops you know for sure it is that fan.
