Why does my PC make noises?

Question

My computer makes a lot of noise now as it didn't before. Also when I turned the computer off. I have to jump start it to get it to come back on.

This question was answered on December 6, 2002. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

With the little information I have, I would guess you have a bad power supply fan They are not worth replacing If that's not it, the only other components in a PC which can make grinding, squeaking or whirring noises are the CPU fan and the disk drives.

A new power supply costs about thirty or forty dollars.
