I just responded to someone else's discussion about this same thing. Have you cleaned the inside of your computer lately? They get very dusty very quickly because of their electromagnetic properties. You need to take the cover off and used come compressed air to blow out the dust from inside. When it gets very dusty inside the CPU, it makes the hard drive work harder since the fan is not cooling it properly. This will eventually burn up your hard drive! You should clean the inside of your computer about once a month with compressed air. If this is not your problem, I couldn't tell you what it might be. I hope that cleaning it will fix the problem for you.

I'm sorry, I just noticed a typo in my response. I meant to say, "You need to take the cover off and use some compressed air to blow out the dust from inside."

Hi! We have the same problem. And our place is small, the noise reverberates all over. Lucky there are just two of us living here, and we've learned to live with it. With my computer, it's the fan, so it's easier to fix. I opened it up myself just to check it out. I think you also need to open your cpu to see which part is noisy so you can get it fixed. A noisy hard drive usually means that it has problems already. Hope this helped.

Any computer that making that much noise really need a good inspection, there might be a serious problem developing inside... Please visit Smart Computing's Tech Support and see if you can find a solution for this! :)

Is it the dialup part or is it in the processor as you are using your computer? You may have to delete some cookies and files and that should quiet it down. You may have spyware on your computer also. You can also run the disk defragmenter and that should help to clear it out and quiet it down. It sounds like it is overloading. Restart your computer also and that should help.
