Laptop making a high humming noise that comes and goes

When I turn it on, the noise comes on and lasts for about 15 sec then goes off. Once it gets to my logon screen it comes on again, then goes off when screen is loaded. It will then come on if I start up any program and will go off 15 seconds or so after the program is running.

It sounds as if your hard drive is starting to go, either that or your cooling fan. These would be the only two things I can think of that would cause a "humming" sound. I'm also guessing hard drive due to the fact that the drive spins until the program is loaded into your RAM then lets the RAM take over so it gets quiet again. Just a thought, it doesn't cost anything to open the bottom and listen closely. Good luck!

I hear a sharp snap then a loud humming noise which sounds electrical. If I turn the refrigerator switch off, then on, the humming stops. Otherwise, it lasts 10 to 15 minutes. Its getting louder.

Whining humming noise under hood


If the engine is not reaching optimum operating temperature it will indeed give you a "check engine light",the code will lean you in that direction as well.The noise your hearing more than likely is coming from the "clutch fan",they are very common on the TrailBlazers to make noise and fail.The oil light... you certainly need to have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gage.
