Hey everyone,
My computer's got worse lately with that humming sound it makes. It's humming all the time and I can hear it now even when I'm away from it. I do leave my computer on all the time so would shutting it down for a while help? I took the side of the computer off and blow the fan with an airgun and lubed it with some CRC but still, the noise was back in minutes.
Is there a program that can detect the running of the fan and maintain the fan??? (<- maybe quite a silly question). Or what can I do to stop this hummmmmming...
Going nuts~

Chances are the bearings are going, going... Sooner or later you'll have to replace it, but in the meantime MotherBoard Monitor can check your fan speed and CPU temp.

LOL I couldn't finish the configuration after the installation cos I didn't know what the make of my motherboard is and which model it is - I suck when it comes to hardware :| Anyways, guess I'll just need to see someone working in the electronics store soon, cos I can't run my computer without a fan eh?

Your motherboard model should show up on your POST screen (I'm guessing you don't have the manual).

As to running without a working fan, I guess it comes down to how much you like your CPU.
