    Constantine What's a Dremel?

    Hi, I have recently been having problems with my computer. I have been
    getting weird noises when I start up the computer, after I hear this I
    immediately turn off my computer and wait a while and turn it back on,
    then there are no more noises. This happens every once in a while.
    Another problem that happens once in a while is the burning smell that
    I can smell in my whole room. I have the side cover off of my computer
    and can smell it in there very strong. And another problem is I can
    hear my CPU Fan turning on/off and then going from very fast to very
    slow.. I really need some help so can anyone please help me?

    p.s. i have recently formatted my computer

    1: If you smell it burning, DON'T USE IT!

    Sounds like a fan taking it's last breaths to me

    reapply thermal paste, and maybe consider investing in a new HSF for it
