Windows 7: high pitched nasty sounding noise coming from laptop

high pitched nasty sounding noise coming from laptop

I was over at a friends tonight and she has an hp I5 laptop...not sure of the model# and it is getting a high pitch noise that can be heard from as far as about 6 feet away. This is a consistant and steady noise. This just started today. It is running hotter than normal from what she said. The laptop is about 2 yrs old.

I checked one of the fans and I felt some air coming out, and I could hear the fan running, but I had a hard time identifying where the noise is coming from...

What components would most likely be the cause. Certainly the fan, I would think, but what else could it be? I won't risk opening up the case, but is there any additional troubleshooting I should try?

Sounds like a bad fan, higher heat and squealing sound. also check to see if a disk has been left in the optical drive.

Thanks for your suggestion, I'll have her check the optical drive, but I don't think anything is in there. I guess she may need to take it in for repair. If it was mine, I would open up the case and repair it myself, but I don't want to risk messing anything up on her machine. Thanks for your suggestion- Carl

You're welcome Carl. I'd be hesitant to open a laptop myself, can be tricky. hope she finds a solution.

It's The Hard Drive Making High Pitch Noise

I am a professional Technician and have encountered high pitch noise many times. I've tried it all, change processor, change memory, fans, heat sink you name it. By accident I took a hard drive out of one laptop because of high pitch noise (Tested Perfectly 100% performance and health) put in another laptop and boom same high pitch noise. Same scenario with HP Desktop. It's the hard drive! Yay

High pitched noise only when playing games?
I've noticed a high pitched whining noise that sounds like it is coming from the power supply/GPU, both being less than a month old. The weird thing is, it only makes the noise when I am playing a game, for instance if I tab out, the noise will stop and if I tab in it will start again. I've mainly...
