    Does this sound effect the computer performance? Do you happen to get error messages? Also, have to tested the HDD status. if not please test it in acer care center and check. Most of the times the issue could be with HDD or FAN.

    Try to reach out acer support in united states and let them know the situation. Check if acer US can connect with acer Egypt.
