Dell 4700c my dell 4700c makes alot of noise

Answers :

Take off the side panel of the computer and listen to it a little closer when its on. there are very few actual moving parts so i should be fairly easy to isolate the noise. if it's a fan anywhere in the computer it can be replaced for less than 20 dollars and shouldn't be left till it dies, replace it , it's protecting something.
\015\012If it's a cd drive making the noise , it can be replaced for 25 dollars.
\015\012If it's the hard drive, then you need to back up your important files AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, because when it crashes, you generally have a hard time retrieving stored information from it.
\015\012hard drives can be replaced for 50 to 150 dollars depending on type and how large it is.
\015\012Most times the noise from a computer comes from the fans and power supply, then the cd/dvd roms , then the hard drive : so check them in that order. post here again if you need further assistance.. Regards
