  1. Hello, I recently installed an SSD (removed the hard drive) on my laptop and since then I've been hearing a constant noise. I will post a YouTube link to a video where you can hear the noise. If anyone knows how I can fix it please help.

    Extra information:
    The sound is louder when opening any program like google chrome for example.
    The sound gets louder when I scroll through any program.
    When launching a game, the graphic card engages and the sound stops.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    That is one weird noise. Sounds almost like a staccato drum salute. Unable to tell if hardware or coming from speakers (software). If you can disable the system sounds, does sound go away?

    I disabled the speakers but the noise keeps on. Oh and wait the drum is me accidentally hitting the table, the noise I worried about is the low kind of grinding.

    It's a failing cooling fan... May be just dirty
