Sometimes My Computer Starts Up Noisy

This happens just once in a while ever since I got it or so, but it usually stops after I reboot. I noticed it might have something to do with how hard I press the on button when I start it. Yes, it's true. Have you ever heard of that? Anyways, it sounds like it's a fan problem, too. It whirrs kind of loudish like a small vaccumn, and after I reboot it's gone. Does it seem like a fan problem or could it be just that I press the button on too hard? It's a HP e-machine.

I have had this issue twice with HP laptops so my next laptop will certainly NOT be HP! They have a overheating issue... and some models of desktops do as well! When you get too much dust in the computer it causes it to overheat. When that happens the fans work harder to try to keep it cool as a result the louder sounds. IF you ignore it and it IS that... you run the risk of screwing up your motherboard.. happened with me once.. and ALMOST did the 2nd time but caught it early enough so no real damage happened ;) Hope you get it fixed!

Oh I didn't know that about HP laptops, luckily I'm using a desk top. I just reboot it and it's gone, no more noise. It's wierd how it works that way. Thats why I think it has something to do with the button and the fact that the computer was almost new when it did this too.

it has nothing to do with the button. your pc needs dust cleaned out of it so the fan can run easier. somehow you've gotten a large amount of dust inside. every time my son cleans my pc, it runs quieter for a time.

Oh, Ok. I wonder if it's gotten so much dust in it due to all the open air holes it has, I mean there are holes on the top too, which is a huge dust collector for a computer. I will have to borrow your son to do it for me, too.
