    Default Is it normal comp makes buzzing sound?

    I hear some kind of a buzzing noise coming out from the comp...should I be concerned? or is this normal? I don't think it used to do this.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    I'm not too sure eddie, but if you wanted to vacuum, you can take the case off. But I think there's a little vent for the fan in it.

    it's good to crack open the case (after unplugging it and grounding yourself) and get the dust out.. it can cake up. The little exhaust fan can get clogged and such.

    If that isn't it, and the buzzing is still there and it's not the fan, it might be your hard drive wearing down. It starts sounding like a whine after awhile.

    I use compressed air, make sure your machine is off, unplugged and cooled down (you can burn the crap out of yourself). Anything with grooves can collect the dust bunnies, and if you have a cat their fur tends to build up too. I do it outside so the burst of dust doesnt' freaking kill me.
    Don't worry about what other people think. They don't do it very often.

    ^ I do that too. I'm always amazed at the quantity of crud that comes out.

    That kind of noise can also indicate a fan, floppy drive or CD-DVD drive trying to die too. When I worked in computers one of the commonest noise complaints was very noisy CD drives.
