Very similiar but higher pitched. Also my hard drive indicator light does not flicker with the noise changes. When I put my hand on the hard drive I feel a clunking physically, is that normal or another indication that it si the hard drive ?
I have not as I am unsure how to do this. I do know that hard drives get louder with age but I have never had one that goes from quiet to noisy to the point where it sounds like it is stopping and then picks up and slows down as it make a different pitched sound for increases and decreases in noise. The computer sounds quiet completely when the noise stops. And then it will come back and continue with the varying pitch and volume.
Machine is on now and I would be glad to give you remote access. Just walk me throught what I need to do on my end.
