Which fan is making all the noise?
Download Speedfan (The download link is to the right), and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows.
The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
To make sure we are getting all the correct information it would help us if you were to attach a screenshot like the one below of your Speedfan results.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard.
  • It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
  • Now go to Start and then to All Programs
  • Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
  • In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
  • Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
  • Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop
  • Attach it to your next reply

Click on the Blue link named "SpeedFan" in rshaffer61's post which will take you to the SpeedFan website. On the top right side of the page, you'll see something that says "Download Latest Version" with a big Green arrow. Click that button and you should get a pop-up asking where you want to download the file. Choose your desktop, or some other place you remember. Once the file is downloaded, double click with the left mouse button on the file you downloaded, called installspeedfan440.exe.

This will start the installer routine. Follow the wizard to install the program and once finished, you can delete the installspeedfan440.exe file if you wish. Next, look on your desktop for a shortcut that looks like a Gray fan with a Black housing. Double click on that icon to start the SpeedFan program.

Then follow the rest of his post beginning with the first bullet.

Once you open the program, it will gather all the information itself. Once it finished loading, go ahead and dismiss the "hints" splash screen. Then take your screen shot.

Do you have access to another PSU that is known to be in working condition that you can try? In the meantime please do the following.

Download and install Free Everest Home Edition
Open it.
1: In left pane expand Computer folder.
2: Click once on Summary
3: In upper menu, go Report
4: And then to Quick Report-Summary
5: Save it in text file, and paste it in your next post.
Click the + by computer, click on Sensor. Get a screenshot and post it so I can check your temps and voltages...

DO NOT INCLUDE ANYTHING UNDER THE LINE THAT SAYS "DEBUG- PCI"

You are going to have to do some investigation on which fan is noisy.
The programs are not showing us a fan, just the hard drive temperature.

Do you know what fan is noisy?
Is it the PSU (power supply) where the main power cord is?
Is it the CPU fan? or is it the case fans? or the GPU (graphics fan) if you have a fan on the graphics board.

When was the last time you cleaned the inside of the case?

Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop
  • Please double-click TFC.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • It will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.
  • Click the Start button to begin the process. Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two. Let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Once it's finished it should reboot your machine. If it does not, please manually reboot the machine yourself to ensure a complete clean.


Download Auslogics Defrag from the link in my signature below. Auslogics Defrag in my opinion is better because:
It does a more comprehensive job at Defragging
It will actually show you what it is doing
At the end of working it will show you how much speed you picked up
You can view a online log of the files that Auslogics defragged


One entry I did find in the Autoruns which can and will cause problems is this...

uTorrent" "�µTorrent" "BitTorrent, Inc." "c:\program files\utorrent2\utorrent.exe"



Although using P2P programs like Utorrent are not illegal, the files downloaded could contain potential infections. By continuing to use these programs will put you at a higher risk for infection. If you continue to use these programs GTG may not be able to provide assistance in the future.


As 123Runner stated you will need to figure out which fan is making the noise. I suspect as Essexboy stated also and that is your PSU is failing. Check it when you turn the system on for slow turning fan or stopping. Make sure it is blown out using a can of compressed air.
