I have a computer that i don't turn on very much. A couple of times a week.
The problem is whenever i turn it on i hear this LOUD noise (fan?)
I know their are quiter fan, but the thing is, it didn't make that sound before.
History - My old computer worked fine for 1½ year. Until one day i started windows 98 and it wouldn't start.
Some disk error. Took it somewhere, they said something was wrong with your fan, so i bought a 40$ fan.
After another year of no problem, not the computer has started to make a lot of noise.
So my question is, is the fan going bad again?
Should i clean it?
Should i replace it?
Should i even give a crap since i don't care if it blows up?
