Build a PC Random whirling sound from computer?

Sorry if this is the wrong section. This is my first time in a forum like this :D

So, 2 weeks ago, I cleaned my entire house....and i decided to dust out my computer too. I opened it up, and looked at it.....I pulled a couple of things (that had a lot of dust in it). I took a Q-tip and some paper towels then wiped all the dust, that i could see, from the computer. I wiped between some gold-colored plates that were arragned in a ring, the top of the circuit board (motherboard i'm assuming), and below/on the fans. I put everything back together with no problems and was able to use the computer without any issues until the next day, I noticed a strange whirling, groan type of sound. The sound is low and there's a distinct pattern to it.

I googled it and found nothing like what i was hearing.....but upon reading other posts/threads about other sounds, I gathered that the power supply, mother board, or fans were messed up. Problem is, I don't know what's wrong T.T

Can anyone shed some light on this matter?

If you open the case it should be pretty easy to tell where the sound is coming from. Could be a fan is off balance or something is rubbing against the blades of a fan.

Thanks for the reply :D
but....I think I solved it....using a primitive method....
I was annoyed at the sound so about 5 hours after writing the post, I kind of hit my computer and it seems to have fixed itself.
I haven't heard any more of the weird noise and everything seems to be in working order.

Thanks anyway xD
