Weird Noise on Start Up!

Hi. Don't know if anyone can help. My pc has started making a strange sound when ever I start it up. It basically sounds like a washing machine on spin/plane taking off.

It sounds like a fan but could also be the hdd. Not sure, but once windows is all fully loaded it quietens down, and is then fine.

Any ideas?

You'll need to open the case and then see if you can identify the source.

How old is the system? Does anyone smoke nearby? (Nicotene causes dust to become very sticky) Check all fans, clean them anyway as a good measure, then tell us if the problem still exists?

ok, will do. The system is year and a half old - it has a brand new graphics card in it, which I thought might be the cause of the problem, but don't think so. Will give it a good clean and see what happens!
