SOURCE: I have a Dell studio
you may want totry to note the source of the noise to pinpoint the possible cause. note if it is fron the hard drive, speakers or the fan. once you have found the source, you may then get warranty replacement if still active for the part generating it. other things to try would be to update bios and hard drive firnware if applicable which can be downloaded through the dell support site. you can also run the Dell diagnostics tool for abnormal noise to try to verify the source of the noise. hope this helps

Have you tried the "Power Flee". Sometimes this small step works where we don't expect it to be..
>Press and hold the "power button" for 5-10 seconds.
>Remove all cables, peripheral devices(If connected)
>Take out the laptop battery and wait for couple of minutes.
>Insert the battery again and try to boot.
If it passes through the dell logo screen now and still stuck somewhere(BLACK / BLANK screen), then we can try "advanced boot options", Windows vista / 7 WINRE options(startup repair, system restore, various commands from "command prompt", and complete factory restore).
If its still stuck on that same dell loading screen, consult your manufacturer for hardware diagnostics.
