I just got the game Oblivion and i barely met the hardware requirements. I have a Radeon 9800pro which didnt come with my computer, i got it off a friend a few years ago for 100 dollars out of his alienware. My computer only has about 1-2 fans and a little gid for circulitory ventalation. The morning after installing this game my computer was really noisy and had a smell like a brand new computer, that kinda smell like the parts are gettin moved for the first time. I think it might not even be related to buying the game but i dont know, when i woke up with all the noise it sounded like a fan spinning really fast and the side where my motherboard is near the CD drives and hard drive was REALLY hot. I had no idea what to do so i put a house fan near my computer to send air through the grid and cool the sides a bit. The fan is totally normal now but if i turn off the house fan the noise starts again. :evil: . I have a friend who owns a computer store down the block and i am going to take it to him to get all repairs done, i have a cd drive broken as well and i kind of need a new hard drive. What should i do about the fan or if anyone thinks it is a different component other than the fan, PLEASE let me know. :p i really appreciate the help in advanced.
Thank you in advanced
