"is it due to ram or virus or hard disk problem"

No. is it due to a buildup of dust and dirt on the fan blades and possible wear & tear on fan bearings? very likely.

Your question should be " How do I safely clean out the built up dust & dirt from inside my PC case"

Begin by disconnecting the power. Open the case. Take a small paintbrush and gently dislodge the dust & dirt from all fans and heatsink. Use a can of compressed air and blow out the dust. It is best to do this outdoors.

If cleaning off the fan blades does not reduce the noise you should consider replacing the noisy fan as a worn bearing can lead to fan failure & system overheating.

I guess it could be possible a virus could cause that but I'd think it more likely it is a mechanical issue. Bearings in the fans could be going bad. A wire has fallen into the fan, Dust build up has finally caused the fan to be out of balance. Dust has caused heat to build up too much.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Ok so now you reveal it is a laptop not a desktop. Presumed otherwise since you said fans (plural) while most laptops have only a single cooling fan. You may think you keep it free of dust but it is highly likely something is obstructing the vents leading to rising temperature, making the fan work at maximum revs.

Buy yourself an airduster and consider getting a laptop cooling pad.

You seem to be grasping at "Virus" as the cause of your problem. Why? Is there something else happening to your system other than the noisy fan that you haven't told us about? don't you currently have any antivirus installed?
