A couple of days ago I started up my computer and for some reason, I would press the power button, the computer would power up and the fan would make the same noise as usual. Except, normally, it would slow down after about 5-10 seconds. However, the loud noise of the fan was persistent and wouldn't stop.
Furthermore, the OS wasn't starting and my screen remained blank. So I hoovered over the grills covering the fan to clear out the dust, which miraculously worked. However, today I am having the same issue.
This time however, I was the cause, as I dropped the computer on the floor and now the fan makes the loud noise when I power up the computer and the OS doesn't start.
Could you please tell me what the issue could be? My computer is a Dell vostro 200 slim with a Vista OS.
