Strange noise

Hi,

For the last week now my computer has been making a humming sounds that progressively gets louder. The strange thing is if I press my hand firmly on the side of the case the humming stops for a short time. Any ideas as to why this would happen?

Will give any specs if needed.

Thank you,

Bogan

It might be normal, but please update your specs. So we can help you further.

I would assume that it's your cooling fan working a little too hard. But, it could also be several other things, so yeah, please post your specs.

It might as simple as taking the case cover off and finding that a screw has come out of something that moves and it is vibrating. See if you can find out what is making the sound.
