My computer started making weird noises.... It's a September 2002 Dell...

It was making a whining noise and a rattling noise... could it be a fan that's going? Or something different....

maybe a fan. are you uncomfortable opening it up and pinpointing the noise?

It could be the HD or CD also. The good news is you will have plenty of time to chase it down. Funny noises always come back. Just like in your car.

I'd check to make sure all the fans are screwed down snug.

my cpu fan was making a funny noise. I had to take out the hsf, screw the fan tighter back onto the heatsink and remount it. took care of the problem.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
