    I need help and to know what to do now.

    I keep hearing that the computer fans could be dying and that would then kill the computer as well.

    I dont know what happened I had the computer on all the time but the last few days when I started shutting it down and booting it up the next morning it now makes this horrible sound in both fans in the inside of the tower.

    It sounds like they are pushing too hard or going into overdrive or even overheating but I dont know what exactly it is precisely.

    I need help this computer cost enough money as it is I dont want it to die on me weve had it since 2009.

    Please help.

    I'm guessing you have a Dell Inspiron 546 Mini Tower

    Have you opened the case to see if the inside is full of dust, hair, debris, etc.?

    Here is the on-line service manual for it.

    Click the "Fans" link - which shows you how to remove/replace the fans.

    I'm not there, so I don't really know what the issue is.

    Let's see if one of the hardware experts jumps in and can give you some advice and a resolution to the issue.
