My dimension 3000 makes very loud noise in tower, HELP!

  • My dimension 3000 makes very loud noise in tower, and i need held.

     My computer tower has been making this very loud anoying noise, it sounds like a blow dryer almost. I've called dell, but my warranty expired, and was being charged $50.00 to be helped, and I don't have that right now. So if any one can help me fix or even kinda fix this problem I'd appreciate it.

    thank you

  • That sounds like it may be the CPU cooling fan.  Clean out (the dust) the heat sink and any other dust inside the tower and see if that helps.
