Thanks for the reply.
But honestly, i'm not very good at handling these things. I have no idea where exactly the hard drive is and i'm not sure i understand 'booting from a cd'.
Right now when i turned the lap on, just when i pushed the power on button i heard the whirring really slow (like it has been happening for the past days), i could almost make out 3 rotations. After the lap finished booting there was no whirring for a while (which has happened 4 the first since it started in the first place) then after barely 10 min the whirring started again.
Could u plz tell me what cud be wrong if it is the hard drive? Y would it be making this noise? Cud it be due to lack of space on it or sumthing ? The C drive is 141 GB and around 43 GB is still free. then there's only the recovery disk which i havent touched.
If the problem is the fan, y do u think it is acting like this? Is it going to die or sumthing?
Please help, the whirring's getting to me.
