Ive got an Advent PC which was working fine but the fan is extremely loud. sounded like a washing machine when i turned it on which was annoying.
My mum said that i should try and clean the fan out. so i tried it. i got some cotton buds and got aload of greyish fluffy crap out of the fan which is located over a chip on/near the motherboard.
when i put the case back on and tried to start it, after 30 seconds it turns it self off. and it keeps going it when i turn the comp on. altho if i keep trying one after the other the amount of time it takes for it to turn off shortens and visa versa
anybody got any suggestions to fix this cuz the nearest place to get it fixed professionaly aint exactly near..........
