low constant hum on computer

My searches here seem to indicate this low constant hum is not the hard drive but a fan. It is a noise I usually hear when I power up but disappears as the computer "warms up". Today, however, the hum did not go away. Although the back grille is slightly warm, I think that is the usual. When I put my hands on the sides of the box I feel a vibration, which I don't think was there before......vibration is stronger on one side than the other.
Other than using the compressed cold air to clean out the dust, I do not know my way around inside the box.
Does this sound like a fan or hard drive?
