    i bought an iMac three days ago... so far i am loving it..except for one thing... the noisy sound, its very similar to the sound of a vacuum cleaner... i googled the problem... it says it could be the fans... they recommended :removing the power cord from the back of the iMac waiting for 15 seconds and plugging it back in.
    done that already but unfortunately it did not work... the sound is still there...

    hey i just wanna make sure: the iMac is suppose to be quit right!!! i am just checking because it is only since yesterday that i noticed the sound... when i wasn't listening to music :s and the room was quiet...

    You posted this in the PPC section, so I'm going to assume that it is an old, used iMac ... if so, you could probably replace the fans from a place like iFixIt.
