Question about HP OmniBook XE3 Notebook
We usually use mac laptops, but I needed a PC laptop for work. I bought a used one loaded with software, and it seemed great, but it emits a very loud high-pitched whine that gives my husband and I headaches.
Any suggestions? I've heard it might be a CPU unit...I'm not even sure how to open the laptop to take a look inside.
There are two possible things it could be, either a fan is giving the whining noise or it's the hard drive. Locate the fan on the underside and put your ear near to see if it's coming from there. If it is, the fan needs to be replaced.
If it's not the fan then it's probably the hard drive and I would not think it is going to last much longer.
