Your computer shouldn’t be making weird noises in the course of regular operations. If it does, chances are something is going wrong. Depending on the noise, it could be a small problem or a major warning that something is about to go really really wrong. Here are some common noises we hear and potential diagnoses:
Clicking – This is probably your hard drive and is a very very bad sign. If your drive is clicking, back up as much data as you can and bring it in immediately.
Loud Whirring/Whining – Probably your fan getting clogged. Get it cleaned out ASAP.
Non-Stop Beeping – This is your motherboard telling you there’s an issue. Usually it’s something simple like a stuck key, but it can also be a sign of a failing CMOS battery or other worse problems.
