Is it normal for a low rumbling sound to be coming from the computer while it is on?

@Gerry81,

 

Welcome to the HP Support Community!

 

I reviewed your post and I understand that there is some noise coming from the computer.

 

Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.

 

Is the noise coming from the system fan?

Have you performed any troubleshooting steps?

 

Meanwhile, I recommend you update the BIOS on your computer from the below link and check if it helps.

Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!

It sounds like the hard drive is constantly reading/writing.
