  • Q:

    Why is my computer running so loud?

    A:

    Even though any number of reasons can cause a PC to run loudly, the problem usually lies with the heat from the central processing unit, or CPU, which makes the fan work harder and thus begin to operate loudly. Furthermore, dirt sometimes builds up in the CPU fan, causing the fan to overheat. In addition, a PC can also sometimes turn itself off because it overheats.
