My computer is making a loud whining noise when I turn it on and then it goes away after it is on for awhile. What causes this?

One of the fans inside the tower is either dirty or starting to fail. Many computers have as many as 3 internal fans. One fan on the CPU (Processor), one in the power supply and one attached to the case itself. When a computer is turned off and a fan is inactive, the bearings can settle in to one spot. When the computer is first turned on it may take a while for the fan bearings to even themselves out which is the cause of the noise. This is similar to the noise a washing machine makes when all the clothes shift to one side. If your fans are making noise it is best to get them inspected and replaced if necessary. A fan that is not cooling can cause damage to the part it is there to protect which can cost even more money than the fan itself.
