Open your system and check fans for dust build up. If the fan and heat sink (probably vents also) are clogged with dust then blow them clear (NO vacuum inside the computer case!!! Just be prepared to vacuum the floor after you close the computer.) with compressed air can and see if they work now. If not then replace the fan(s).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
