Please can someone tell me if I have a problem with my computer. I have noticed over the past few days when I switch it on it makes a whirling/wound down sound. I t only lasts for a few seconds and everything boots my correctly and the machine works fine, but in the past I've had so many problems with computers breaking down I want to make sure I catch anything before it gets serious. Could it be the motherboard.

How old is your PC and what the make and model?

My computer is just 1 year old and a Medion PC

Could be the fan struggling to get going from cold.

Do you feel confident in taking it apart, and gently brushing the dust off the fans (cpu and case) with a soft paintbrush?

My Pc is just over a year old, and it started making noises - cleaned up the blades on the fans, and its all gone quite again.

Is there a disc in your CD player?
