Loud Whirring Sound from Back of Tower

I have a Vista OS operated computer and just lately I have begun to hear a loud whirring sound coming from the back of the tower. It only lasts as long as the computer takes to start up and then the tower is its usual quiet self. I think it is coming from one of the fans at the back but when I put my hand against them they are still giving out cold air. Can anyone help with what the problem is and how I can solve it?

Hi Everyone,

Unfortunately, the problem is not completely resolved as the sound has returned. Tomorrow I will take my computer back to the computer repair shop and see what they will do. I think it is a case that the fan needs replacing as cleaning as not made a lot of difference unfortunately.

Will keep you posted of further developments.
