-computer runs loud
-if I open cd drive computer it runs quiet for 2-3 seconds and then resumes loudness (no cd inside)
- what do?
- It's not the cd drive either because it will still be loud even though it is ejected

Could be CD drive spinning without a disk in for some reason or it could be a fan, either case, cpu heatsink, or graphics card.

Turn computer off and flip the power switch on the back of the computer to off. Keep computer plugged in, open the case up, touch metal siding with your hand to ground yourself and disconnect the CD drive. Close it up and turn it on to see if it's still loud or not.

Fans could be wearing out or clogged with dust.
