PC is making a humming noise like a cricket

Specs: Windows XP
Today, my work tower PC (an HP Pavilion a282n) started making a sound like a cricket, or a stiff/squeaking wheel. I assume that this is my fan. Will I need to take the fan out in order to fix this, or can I just bring in some canned air?

Occasionally the sound will slow, but it has been consistent for the past 4 hours.

Maybe. Some fans make that noise and maybe wires hitting fan may cause it. The other issue is it might be the hard drive going bad.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
