My laptop makes a buzzing noise

HP Notebook - 15-r237nl
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hi,

I have had my HP laptop (the model is Notebook- 15-r237nl) for about a year and a half now. Usually, it was making a very strong buzzing noise in the beginning, when I was switching it on, which I found out is normal. Then, it started making softer buzzing noises; however, if I turned the laptop off and on again, they were going away.

Now, it is a couple of days that it keeps buzzing quite loud, and it doesn't go away when I try to switch it off and on again. 

Can anybody help me? Also, it should be some kind of assurance or assistance included for the first two years, right? 

Thank you very much!!!
