Question about HP Pavilion ZV5000, ZV6000, ZX5000 Series 12 Cell Li-Ion Battery - DP390A (DP390A1) CD-ROM Drive
Whenever I start the computer, a noise that sounds like a fan spinning comes from under the keyboard. It is very annoying and continues whenever the computer is in use. I reinstalled Windows to no avail. It much be a hardware malfunction. Any suggestions? Thanks.
It could very well be the noisy fan. Try tapping the computer lightly to see if the noise stops or changes to confirm if it indeed is the fan. Or it could be a noisy HDD. There is nothing you can do about a noisy HDD but about a noisy fan you can stop worrying as it will cause no probs as long as it is working, noisily or otherwise. You will have to tolerate it. Sometimes it is the detatchable sides of the computer (you wrote 'computer' in your question). See if the noise stops or lessens when you touch the sides a little harder.
