    All my computers - same thing!!!

    It's not a big deal but every computer I've had for the last 10 years buzz from the fans when I first turn it on. I don't mean hum. I mean, wake everyone up howling of a buzz. It dosn't happen every time, but when it does it last for a good 5 minutes. What the hell does this annoyence, tempature?

    Open your case and check to see if any cables are rubbing up against your CPU fan. If they are just buy some cheap cable ties (or use trash bag ties) to keep them out of the way. If the fans themselves are making noise repalce them.
