recently the computer is making a lot of noise. I¡m almost sure is the processor Fan, but I dont know how can I be sure of this, or how can I fix this problem.

Thanks for your help

well, it can be that or your power supply fan (assuming you don't have any additional case fans as well). I guess the best way to check would be to remove the side from your case and listen closely to see exactly where the noise is coming from. You should be able to tell if it is the CPU fan or the power supply. If you are still unsure, lightly (very lightly) rest your finger on the center of the smooth section of the spinning CPU fan. If this is the part that is making the noise, it will stop briefly from the smoothing and dragging action of your finger. If the noise continues you have a power supply fan to replace. Power supply fans (at the rear) are usually 80mm standard-type case fans, you can buy them at any computer store. (as well as replacement CPU fans.)
