Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4617 Notebook
My toshiba literally sounds like it is about to take off and fly away. I brought it to best buy where I bought it from and they said that this is normal and that it can happen over time. But it lately its been getting louder and I've hear this is often what happens before you're hard drive crashes. Also it usually runs very warm.
> Also it usually runs very warm.
You might want to consider acquiring a cooling docking station:
If your have never grabbed a 40-50 W lightbulb, you will quickly learn why your Toshiba is very warm. They dissipate about that much power internally.
About the noise? Well, without hearing it it will be difficult for anyone to diagnose it; it could be the hard drive but they are pretty small to make much noise. I would suspect the CPU cooling fan that's going to fail early; they can get quite loud if they are a sleeve bearing type and the bearing has gotten sloppy enough for them to rattle.
