My PC is getting old but I need it to last another few months so i can save up for a new one. I use it for Adobe CS6 programs and I bought it back in 2013. The computer is custom built by a company called Nugent Computers in Anaheim but they recently closed down. If you see in the video the fan makes a loud noise and I noticed that the fan is not moving. The noise persists for about a minute or 2 then goes away but happens mostly everytime i turn it on. Isnt that bad? The computer has gotten pretty bad at times freezing at installations for the SP1 Windows package or Adobe programs. So far, I am strictly using it for Adobe programs. If i need to download something i need, I download it on my mac, transfer it to my USB and add it to the PC. The computer stats and video of the problem are below. I want to know if I can fix it myself. So far, after a complete factory restoration, its working well but it took me 4 attempts just to install Adobe programs and Windows updates. Somehow i got lucky with installing Adobe.

If the fan isn't blocked by something, the motor is grinding. You can sometimes fix this by adding lube, but I'd suggest removing or replacing the fan.
