Too many foreign spies are backdooring you all at once. It will eventually cause your OS to lock up and freeze. Then you need to reboot to sever the connections that are slowing your machine down.

I buy reconditioned ones all the time and the noise could be a sign your hard drive is about to go belly up. Make sure to back up any lists you have in the computer

Compressed air, clean out the fan.

If the noise is still there, backup your data ASAP, your hard drive is about to go kaput.

Replace with SSD

That typically means that your computer can't communicate with it. Check your connections to it. If it is a network printer make sure it's on the network.

Could be a loose cooling fan bearing so the fan shaft vibrates. If you have a mechanical hard drive, there again some type of catastrophic failure is transpiring.

First you have to figure out exactly where the noise is coming from.

It's because it's low on water. Just take a cup of water and carefully pour a little in the back where you see the vents. Not too much! You don't want to blow that sucker up!

I don't really know how to do that.

I've run the troubleshooter, but it just keeps telling me that it's turned off when it's not. I've restarted everything. It's connected wirelessly so I'm sure it has something to do with the connection, I just don't know where to find that info.

I'm wondering if just uninstalling/reinstalling will help.
