1: That's a glitch with the game and there's nothing you can do to fix it.

2: You connected two fans together? That's not very good for the fans, you're going to burn them out that way.

3: Try to isolate where the noise is coming from and then figure out what you want to do to fix the noise (buy quieter parts, slow them down, etc).

Bf2 ocassionally decides to take a desk dive. That's just life. Rebooting before you play seems to help prevent these CTDs (crash to desktop), but will not completely remove the possibility.

Also, BF2 does not like to share, so kill off all background programs.
