Hello,

My computer is making really loud whirring sounds from the PSU at the back. Comming out from the fan of PSU.

It is driving me crazy so can you please help me?

AMD Athlon 1700+
512 SD Ram
40 Gig
MX440 64meg

I have a Hewlard Packard PC case if that helps, i dont know what power the PSU is that.

I think it may be all the dust in there, what is a good way to clean it out?

You may need to install another psu if cleaning it doesnt work. Im not sure a generic one from the store would fit in the case though. HP might use proprietary psu's that only fit in their which means you would have to order through them.

If it is just the fan, remove and open the power supply. Get a replacement fan, dont even have to solder. Clip the wires long at the fan, use some in-line crimp connectors to install the new one.

Why buy a PSU, when you need just a fan???
