Having problems with your Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop ?

Dell 3000 PC is extremely loud like a vacumn cleaner right next to your ear... and gets louder and louder throughout the day. Have ran disk clean, Registry Mechanic, and Disk Defrag. Lots of room left on HD. Also, when automatic updates start, it even gets louder. How can I correct this problem? Please ... all suggestions are welcome. Thanks

Bottom line ... need a better fan!

Can't help much, but I'm assuming the noise is coming from the tower... and is either your cooling fan(s) or the cd/dvd drive... eject any cd from the drive, and see if you can check to make sure any fans are clear - give the tower lots of space. It might be helpful to open the case and check the processor cooling fan - it may have a hood over it. Some fans change speed as the computer works harder, to keep adequate cooling- this could be why it gets louder during updates.
