My desktop computer is just a little over 2 years old, and recently when I turn the computer there is an odd grinding type noise coming from the case, this noise doesn't go away, the only way I can get it to stop is by turning the computer off and on again, when I turn it back on it's normally fine.
I had a computer technician out to take a look and he said there was some wear on the processor fan and on the graphics card fan, he cleaned all the dust from the case and replaced the processor fan. However this didn't remedy the problem, he said he thinks it is the graphics card fan making the noise, but he said the fan would be very hard to replace? He said it would be best to let the fan die and then replace it? Is he right?
The computer only randomly makes this grinding noise on startup. There doesn't seem to be a pattern for when it does it. Sometimes it doesn't make the noise for a week or two, but sometimes it makes the noise everyday.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
