My HP Pavilion a6780a, running Windows Vista SP2, makes these abnormal internal noises, which don't affect the computer's performance, but are still annoying.
The question is - what's the noise (I think it's the fan or the hard drive, but it could be something else altogether) and how do I deal with it?
The links are to videos of the computer starting up (on the second attempt), and the noises typically made whilst it is running.
All comments are appreciated.

You really need to open the case and determine the source. Just stay grounded to prevent static discharge.
The Law of Effect states that positive reinforcement increases the probability of a behavior being repeated. (B.F.Skinner). You toss me points, and I perform better.
