A strange whirling noise is coming out of my tower, I think its the fan, is it about to die or should I just bang the side?!Any ideas/help much appreciated.
NO don't bang it!Have you tried giving it a clean as it's amazing the amount of dust and dirt that accumulates.
i agree with christmascracker,a little tlc goes a long way & it doesn't cost u anything
Hmmm,will I be able to easily recognise the fan when I take the cover off and is it OK to wipe the surface with a bit of old cloth?
If you peel back the sticker you can apply one drop (only!) of a light oil such as 3-in-1.

Does that mean the fan has a sticker over it?
CPU fans normally do.
Sounds like the bearings wearing out if it the case fan or cpu fan cheap enogh to get another if it the psu fan could prove more expensive.Regards.
Right then chaps (gulp), I'm going in. Will report back soon (if my computer still works when I've finished with it ...........)
Have a look at click here first!
