Compaq presario CQ61 is making a vibrating noise. it is constant
1) Check if you have a CD/DVD in the disk-drive and remove it. The spinning disk is causing the vibration
2) Go to START > Control panel > PERFORMANCE AND MAINTENANCE > POWER OPTIONS >
In the middle of the dialog box, you should see a box that says "Turn off hard disks".
There you can select "After 3 minutes" or "After 5 minutes". This will turn off another spinning/vibrating thing if you have an issue with imbalance there.
3) Make sure you are not blocking the vent holes on the bottom of your laptop so air can get through and it doesn't overheat. The last spinning thing on your laptop is the cooling fan. This only comes on when it is hot. If you are doing a lot of calculations or heavy-duty computing will also make it hot but this is very rare (I guess some games can also be considered heavy-duty computing and cause overheating). If you are doing heavy-duty computing, there is nothing that can be done about he vibration of the cooling fan.
