What exactly do i oil? Sorry to sound like a 'noob' but i am.....

Today i opened up the case and dusted what seemed to be the biggest fan. The problem, like i say, only occurs 1/3 times so i'll just have to wait and see if that helps....

Sometimes, my computer makes sounds too.

It'll go "wiki wiki wiki wiki wiki" for about ten minutes...Then you can hear little footsteps, and a door slams. Then my CD-ROM opens.

If I come back in an hour or so, the CD-ROM is closed, and I can hear what sounds like gerbils snoring.

Take out the CD-ROM, shake it good, give it a stern lecture, and put it back in and tell it to "shape up and fly right."

:freak:
