Maybe your computer has been learning a few things from my computer. My amd400 has made sounds since day one. It's always ran like a piece of crap and i've just gotten used to it over the years. There were some days when it would sound like it was mowing the grass. I'd make jokes about it to my friends... Hey Ares whatcha doin? Oh nothing, sitting on my computer listening to the damn grass getting mowed! LoL. Anyway, the sound on my pc is actually coming from the cpu fan, which sometimes needs to be twirled or pushed in order to start up. Heh. Sometimes it's extremely loud.

Check out your fan, dude.

Take the sides off your case & try to isolate it. It's either a Fan or the HD.

They could if the fan wasn't sitting properly in its cage & one of the fins was nicking it

Very well could be signs of a failing HDD.

Back up all the data you need to and then reseat the HDD in your case to see if its any issues with fit or something... maybe just vibrations, but theyre rarely very loud.

I WOULD SURE HATE TO BUY A NEW COMPUTER SINCE MY CURRENT ONE REALLY SUCKS. IF I WERE TO BUY A NEW COMPUTER I WOULD SURELY SHOOT THIS COMPUTER...... i think the computer saw that.... if it did then i don't thnk they'll be any more problems
