No not that kind of funny noises! They’re funny noises coming from my comp. Occasionally I can hear a scratching sound coming from my big white box (it's kinda beige actually...), sounds like something to do with one of the fans. Should I be worried about this? Is there anything I can do?

I would be inclined to crack open the case and make sure that no cables are rubbing up against the fans.
If they are, simply move them out of the way.
If it keeps up, it could wear away at the cables and ultimately stop your PC from working.. :(

Have a look inside and see what you find :)

Cheers

Might pay to open up your PC and have a look just in case you have this problem. (http://www.uq.edu.au/education/extra/all.html)

I don't think I have that problem....and no it's not my hard drive (I know what that sounds like). I'll open it up tonight and have a look.
