    Hey, sorry if this is not in the right section since I could not find any other better section to post this in.

    Okay, my computer recently started to sound really loud, so I turned it off before I went to sleep. The next morning I woke up to turn my computer on, but nothing would show on my monitor and the computer was still extremely loud, louder then it has ever been. I decided to play around with it and I replaced the monitor plug (not sure of the correct name) to a different opening in my computer. It solved the problem and my monitor started finally working, but still my computer was louder then ever. I ended up scanning my whole computer and defraging. The scan went fine same with the defrag. The noise was still the same. When I tried out a game, it was really choppy and I was only getting about 10 fps on average.

    I would really appreciate some light on this problem. Thanks.

    You most likely have a bad hard drive. Get all of the infromation that is valuable to you off as quickly as you can.

    okay, I finally got my computer to work fine. It's not loud anymore, my computer is just reading the wrong video card for some reason. I have GeForce 8600 GTS but its reading it as a GeForce 6150 LE for some reason.

    Hmm... It must have been a bad fan. I did not know that you had an ad on gpu. My point still stand, if you are not backing your computer up, now is a good time to do so.
