Strange Noises

Hi Guys,

Having finally sorted myself out with a refurbished tower, e-bay GNR monitor and I think I'll invest in new keyboard, I just have one tiny problem.........

The tower sounds like my central heating system....water gurgling down the pipes....all the time and worse when I've a disc loaded.

It's driving me nuts!

Any ideas?

No idea. Quiet when nothing is happening but as soon as it has to do something like load AOL or play a game then it begins.

Using a disc makes it even louder. It definitely is physical and shouldn't need defragging yet. I've only had it a week!

Bought it last week for £200 but thinking it needs taking back. Shop said it would settle down but I don't think so.
