Hi, my name is ***** ***** welcome to JustAnswer. I'll be the one to assist you with your question regarding your issue today.

Does it appear to come from the vent on the underside where the fan is? if so SHUT DOWN IMMEDIATELY

If it sounds like your hard drive is making noise, this is a sign it is about to stop working on you.

Please advise on this asap, this could be serious.

Thanks Mike

Have you pinpointed the source of the noise by listening to fan and also the hard drive? You will need to hold the unit to your ear on the back side
