Hello,

Try this 1

Regarding the loud noise:

Open the cabinet --> Remove the dust --> Carefully remove the heat sink from

the CPU and clean the CPU Fan--> Remove the old thermal compound from the

CPU and from the heat sink --> Apply a little new thermal compound in the middle

of the CPU and place the heat sink back properly.

Make sure that you have removed the dust from the CPU Fan and Heat sink.

Regarding the display:

If you notice that your CPU fan is running but there is no display in the screen,

then remove the RAM from the slot, clean it and place it back properly or try

another slot.

If you have no idea about RAM, then click on the below hyperlinks "Images".

RAM

Removing a RAM

Check your RAM also. Even bad RAM will result in display problem.

If you are having two RAMs then remove it, place only one RAM and check the

display. If you failed to get any display then change the slot. If you still failed to

get the display then try the above procedure with the other RAM.

Good Luck
