My laptop - just over a year old now - began making this noise. I of course assume it may be the fan or hard drive? The noise started last night. When I turned on my laptop again this morning, I can actually feel it whirring with the noise.
I tried wmic command prompt and got back that the drive is ok. I don't know how reliable that is. I'm glad I did backup for recovery and drivers...but what steps should I take? I'm quite worried. Any suggestions are appreciated!
