    'Groaning' PC

    As the title suggests, my PC (fan I assume) is 'groaning' off and on, - no other way of describing it! I hoover it out (intermittently) but, the groanong persists. Any ideas folks as to the cause

    hoovering is a bad idea if you are talking about taking the side of the case off and hoovering btw.... can cause static discharge and fry things.

    best sticking to proper pc duster gas

    probably on it's way out - screwed bearing or something. just replace it with a new one.

    i've had this before a few times.

    the things i would probably suggest are:

    as people said, a wire could be in the way

    dust could have built up inside, underneath etc, turn the pc off and check the fan goes around properly and doesnt stick.

    the cable thats plugged into the motherboard from the fan, could not be properly connected

    Could be loose bearings in the fan :s

    Sounds like dust in the bearings. It will more than likely be the CPU fan or PSU Fan. Both can be replaced at relative little cost. If its the PSU fan you will be looking for an 80mm fan (usually, some PSU's are now coming through with 120MM fan). The CPU fans are a little trickier as they can be 60-70-80-90mm so you'll need to measure it.
