The video is self-explanatory. Basically, the fan is still spinning, so the PC is staying cool, which is the most important thing. However, it's taking more and more pounds to get it to stop, and it may eventually not stop at all.

Wait, you were asking for help? Because that's not what your first post says.

First of all, take your own advice. I want to you to remember your own words here when you post some bullshit "baw, i didn't get first post" in other threads.

Second, exactly what are you asking? Looking at your video, this sounds like a fan issue, not your power supply. It just sounds like the fan is hitting something in the case... might be off balance or something?

Third, pounds of what to make it stop? Are you whacking it to get the thing to stop?

First, I'm kidding around, which is what Essen did here. However, there are certain things you shouldn't turn into jokes. If you don't want those topics to be like that, let me know; I'll be more than happy to stop.

Second, it's definitely the power supply. See http://forums.sega.com/showpost.php?p=5 ... ostcount=4

Third, my right hand.

This has actually been going on since late March, early April, or late April, if I remember correctly. It's one of those three. =P. That's around when we replaced the previous power supply because the fan was barely spinning, which caused it to overheat.

We're getting a new one later this month, but from Amazon.com, not from Windy City Computers. I'm not blaming them, but the power supplies they get probably just aren't that good because they're a small store. They're the only people that fix computers in our city, though.

Maybe it would be a good idea to properly research which one to buy and check computer online stores like Newegg...

A small tip I can give you (its obvious though): Brands most of the time do matter when it comes to PC parts but even good brands can have bad batches, so check about it.

Small update:

We just got back from taking it in. The guy looked at it and took it to the back to blow it out with an air compresser. It was a little dusty, but there was a lot of the dust in the power supply. I guess the cans of air just can't reach in there right.

Unfortunately, the rattling is still there -- albeit it's better, but it's still there. It's most likely what we thought -- the power supply was faulty when we got it.

Update 1:

I'm not sure if this related to the current issue, but last night the whole computer froze for total of six times.

Update 2:

It just froze yet again. I thought leaving it off all night would do the trick.
I'm going to have to reformat it, but I need to back things up first -- if I can even get it to not freeze for that long...

We got it in November 2007, so not that old.
My mom searched on Yahoo on her PC when she was here on lunch, and it looks like a power supply going out can cause freezing. We also saw something it could be the windows registry, but I'm not sure exactly what that is.

It's most likely the power supply, though.

Sorry I had the cat on my hand. So yeah I doubt it's a power supply issue.

Essen, if you're just going to keep that up, then stop posting in this.

You know as well as I do that just because something gets fixed due to problems with a certain part it doesn't mean that that same part for whatever thing (car, computer, etc.) won't have problems again.

FACEPALM.

Fine, change the power supply again. And then I'll laugh at you when you find it doesn't fix your problem.

Stop buying cheap piece of shit PSUs.

Buy an Antec or Corsair brand that is 80+ Certified.

Normally a power supply problem would cause your pc to restart. (and most times i've seen it happen it won't boot properly after a day or two)

Freezing doesn't explain anything, it can be memory, virus, overheating, and there are a lot of other possible causes. (I've had freezing because of a sound card that decided that it didn't want to be on the last PCI slot anymore...)

I'm not saying that there isn't any chance of it being a power supply related problem, kinda like essen said, its not probable as you have changed it and not a lot of time has passed (unless you decided to save on it, then it might not be handling the load very well, if that's the case, read the previous post and memorize the brands...)

We don't. The ones we get at our local computer store are like $49.99.

Green? Is that the brand? Never heard of it, so it's probably shit.

Ask for Antec or Corsair, and make sure you get one that is 80+ certified. Also make sure you have sufficient wattage.
