MY IQON TOWER DRIVE IS MAKING A LOUD NOISE LIKE FAN WORKING OVE

\015 Sounds like fan inside tower is malfunctioning\015

Answers :

Probably just needs replaced. Sometimes one can clean it and it will last a little longer. It's an easy job to replace it. Just download the manual for your model from the maufacturer's website to see how to gain access to the inside of the computer. Replacement fans are available at places like CompUSA or similar stores, or you can order one on the internet. Just take the existing fan out of the case and take it to the store with you to be sure you get the right one. Take care about static electricity, as it can zap your components, especially the motherboard and the memory sticks. Touch the computer case before touching any parts inside the computer.

\015\012If you don't feel comfortable changing the fan out, a computer repair place can probably do it for not much.
