Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Growling noises from computer and is very slow at times.

\015 My CPU isn't slow all the time but at times it is. It also makes a growling noise at times. Whenever i try to x out of something, it doesn't want to a lot of times and I have to go to Task manager to get out sometimes. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

Is the growl coming from the speakers? If not, I only know of three other things that have moving parts that could make such a noise. Fans, hard drives or optical drives (CDrom,DVDrom, etc). I've had hard drives make make a screeching noise when they start to go bad. I would back it up ASAP.
My computer growled and it bit me and it ran out my house and then came back in and bit me again then stoll my pillow and then came back with it and it bit me again what a night wooooow that computer is visious
