you got a warranty? don't suppose you made a system restore disc

Hiya,

A loud whirring sound like a fan could also be a really dead hard drive which would explain why it is not booting up. Any local PC shops or friends that know enough about PC's to diagnose it?

Cheers

Actually have someone who would be able to identify the problem because it could be a few things from the way you are describing it. It is really hard to diagnose hardware faults remotely as the problem can often show signs of multiple problems.
