Payaso, welcome to the forum.

 

When requesting help, you should always include the make/model of the computer and/or monitor. This information is necessary for us to review the specifications of them.

 

I suggest opening the case.  This will allow you to listen closely to identify which component is making the noise.  Once you let us known, we will do our best to help you solve the problem.  Also, while the case is open, give it a thorough cleaning.  If it is a fan that is running fast, dust can cause this to happen by allowing heat to develop.

Payaso, it Is my pleasure.  It is always good to clean the computer at least once per year.  This can keep it running much longer.

 

If it is the hard drive, there is a guide for running the SMART test in the Product Specifications under the "Solve a problem" section.  I can't add the link from my Touchpad.  Try it to see what it says.

 

Please click "Accept as Solution" if your problem is solved.
