HP Pavilion 15-ab100na Laptop making chirping noises

HP Pavilion 15-ab100na Laptop
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

I got this laptop yesterday, and it seems to be periodically making a sound like an angry budgie or cricket occasionally. It's not coming from the speakers, but seems to be coming from the top right-hand side of the laptop, but I can't tell if it sounds electronic or like metal squeaking on metal.


I really don't want to have to send this laptop back, I don't have the receipt to hand and I need this to do university coursework, so does anyone have any ideas as to how to isolate the issue?


The chirping seems to be entirely at random, and independent of how intensive the things I'm doing are (like, it doesn't happen much when gaming or watching videos, but it beeps a lot while browsing the internet or word-processing).


Please help!

Hi @HearTheRequiem,

Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!

I came across your post about the Notebook, and wanted to assist you! I have looked into your issue about your HP Pavilion 15-ab100na  Notebook making chirping noises. Some say you could restore the BIOS to factory defaults help with this. Here is a document that shows you how to restore BIOS factory default settings. That way it will look at the Hardware installed on the Notebook.


You could  try using the Windows Update Troubleshooting tool to fix any updates that have not come through for Windows.  Please restart the Notebook twice to make sure all update have been completed!

Please let me know how this goes.
