    its me again, (the one with the shitty comp making noise problem)...so i finally bought a new power supply (a 450 watt) thinking that the old power supply (250 watt) was making all that lawn mower noise but i finally realize it wasn't rly the old power supply's fault (barely), but instead, it was the fan beneath my power supply...like i said before, i don't know much about computers and now im wondering what is this fan beneath my power supply thats making all this noise and how can i fix it?? :wtc:

    if it's just connected to the case, replace it with a better one that's quiet.

    just the noisy fan. im not sure how it's connected but you said the fan under your power supply is making the noise... either unscrew or pop it out somehow and find a new quiet one to put in it's place.

    if the fan you're seeing is the one to the left of the cpu, then it should be pretty easy to replace yourself.
