Hey Urybody! I need some advice here...for the last 2 months my computer makes serious grinding noises when I turn it on and during my stay on the computer it'll make strange grinding noises...I thought it might be the fan with dust or fuzz caught in the motor or something but my system seems to have 2 fans and one is encloses in a small steel casing...does anybody know if this grinding is the fan and should I take it in and get it fixed immediately?

Here's an mp3 of the noise...it sounds like a typewriter but I assure you it's the strange grinding lol..

Yeah, I have a Dell Dimension 8250 with the SAME EXACT problem. I myself have no idea what to do. I regularly clean the inside to make sure there is no dust lodged inside, or anything like that. The tower starts to make the sound after about 10 minutes of usage and stops once the system is shut down.

I've contacted Dell about the problem and all they did was send a replacement fan. WHICH DIDN'T HELP. I'm still needing help, so if anyone has an idea on how to help... I'LL BE WAITING. RIGHT HERE. No, not HERE.............. HERE.

I have a Dell Dimension 4600 and it makes that noise every once and awhile and then it goes away? I thought it was me but maybe not.

Did they replace the CPU HSF or jsut teh Case Fan?? It could be that....It could also be the HDD. Try unplugging it from the IDE Cable and the Power and turning the computer on...if you still hear the grinding then youv eliminated that...do the same with the Optical Drives.

The box, you refer too, is the power box. It has an internal fan and likely is going out. It is a simple fix. Refer to owners manual and determine the size and then go to a shop and purchase a new one. Minimal cost.

Sinobyte,you need a new PSU (Power Supply Unit).It supplies electricity to all the components in the pc. They retail at about £10 upwards, depending on which model you get. Find out the size and voltage that you need and any computer shop can help you out.

I am sorry sinobyte, but you have been ripped off.

Instead of a computer you have bought a high tech coffee grinder. Its wanting you to add the coffee beans in it to produce nice ground coffee afterwards.

See on the top of your monitor? There are all these small holes. Buy some beans and pour them in the holes. They will travel through the cable into the machine and coffee will come out of one of the small holes in the front.

If you are lucky you will see there is a built in coffee cup holder as well, to store your cup in.
