Why is my laptop making a rattling noise?
If it’s rattling when it’s on and sitting still, it’s either going to be a fan or a mechanical hard drive. If this is happening when it’s turned on, you’d want to get it checked out because a bad fan can lead to parts failing due to thermal issues, and a bad hard drive is going to lead to data loss.
Why does my computer make a crunching noise?
Grinding noises are always bad news, but the most common cause is a failing fan, and that’s what it sounds like. Your PC may have several fans to cool the processor, a fast graphics card, the case and the power supply (PSU). It may be possible to free up a fan with a tiny drop of oil (but don’t use WD-40).
