The whirring sound you hear may be a cooling fan, but you should only hear it when the computer is on. Here is an easy way to check: wait for the computer to turn off, and when you hear the noise press the enter key. If the computer turns on then it weasn't really off. It was sleeping. If it is a cooling fan, you can clean that yourself with a can of compressed air which you can buy a Walmart Target Big-K, or any computer store. Use the small plastic hose or pipe to blow the air through the fans in the back of the computer. Its most likely, dust/smoke/pet hair. No problem.

My 2001 sonata makes whirring sound when attempting to start...Is this a solenoid gone bad, ignition switch, engine does not crank.


Sounds like the starter is bad. First make sure you have good battery voltage while cranking. At least 12 volts. Check cable ends.

If it normally fired up straight away, and now when you hold it down and release it only makes a whirring sound. Sounds like your starter clutch has failed.
There are little signs when this happens. Often after a successful start you will hear a small whrring sound, or you will go to start it and it will catch then release to a whirring sound.

I am hearing a noise, like a whirring sound that speeds up with the acceleration and makes no noise when in park. Does this sound like cv joint trouble?


a whirring sound can be a bearing on a component under the hood.(power steering pump,alternator,idler pulley bearing,etc),it can also be a serpentine belt from a worn belt or belt tensioner a cv joint won`t make a whirring sound(it will cause a clunking noise or a vibration).

My Galaxy NVIDIA Geforce 9600 is making loud whirring sound


You can see if the fan is getting pluged up with dust. Yes I have seen lots of these do that. You can also take the fan off the card and clean it. or replace the fan..If you are having trouble already with gaming it is because the card is getting way to hot..

Sounds like a bad torque converter. When the torque converter is engaged, it's not "whirring" it's on decel or freewheel that it "whirs".Did you check fluid level and color?

Gateway laptop - whirring, buzzing sound


if it's a continuous whirring sound it is most likely the cooling fan. this is normal. as the computer gets older this will get noticably louder as the fan has to run faster to prevent overheating.

Constant whirring- fan?


The whirring sound could mean the computer is running pretty warm and the fan is working hard to cool it. Or your fan is flat out going bad in which case replace it. One thing you might try is to get a can of compressed air (BlowOff) and see if you can get some dust out that may make you computer run cooler and your fan run smoother.

Z3 whirring sound when transmission is engaged


It is possible that your differential could be making the sound. However, if the sound disappears when putting the trans in neutral, I would suspect that the differential should still be making noise. If the torque converter is worn, then you would have noise while in gear, but probably not as noticeable while in neutral. Depending on the production date of your car, 2000-early2001 Z3 had an issue with the torque converters.
