New computer out of the box, when I turn it on, it makes "whirling" sound while in operation. It may speed up or slow down depending on what I am doing. Ran the diagnostic on the hard drive and it passed. Not sure if anything can be done about the sound or if this is normal.
Any suggestions or what can I do about the sound? It's a bit distracting.

It'll be the CPU fan. Sometimes is can be a noisy/faulty fan, sometimes even a slight warp in the chassis can make the fan noisier. Generally it's normal to hear something, but it shouldn't drive you to distraction.
If it's brand new, I would get in touch with HP and log a warranty call for someone to come & have a look and make a determination .
