PC hardware--CPU & Motherboard & RAM: fan noise, mhz mmx, 256 mb ram
mhz mmx, 256 mb ram, fan noise: Hi, The noise from the fan could be due to some faulty bearings on the fan, or due to dust collection around the fan. You could get the fans cleaned and see if it solves the problem. If that doesn t solve the problem, you ll have to go ahead and change...

PC hardware--CPU & Motherboard & RAM: fan noise, mhz mmx, 256 mb ram
mhz mmx, 256 mb ram, fan noise: It is most likely the fan in the power supply. You can get a can of compressed air and blow the dust and dirt out of the fan. If that does not work, I do not recommend that you try to fix this as it requires special tools and test equipment to legally...

PC hardware--CPU & Motherboard & RAM: fan noise, local computer store, processor fan
local computer store, processor fan, dusty conditions: It sounds like it is time to replace your fan. The bearings are probably on their way out, and you ll want to replace it before the fan stops completely and your processor overheats.
