    Open the case and see if you can determine where the noise is coming from exactly. What ever is making the noise will have to be replaced...

    Ok, thanks! I am not 100% sure where it's coming from to be honest, but when my pc is slow the noise gets quicker?

    Probably a bad fan. If it is the CPU cooling fan you may want a computer service center to fix it for you
