    I was playing CoD and I took my headphones off and what?? I hear a strange noise. I restarted the comp and it didn't disappear. When I switched it off then it was gone. I listed it and I am almost sure that it was not from the fans. What is that, any ideas? At video the noise disappears when I switched the computer off and you can compare with the normal fan noise.

    It sounds like an unbalanced fan starting up, did you lift it and turn it upside down just before starting? Sometimes you can get a fan to slip in the spindle and start off rubbing against something. An after video of the normal sound during startup would help too.

    Hi,

    No I didn't. It worked fine around 20-30 minutes, then When I took my headphones off, I started to hear that noise. Fan is getting stronger or slower, but it didn't effect that noise. I am 99% sure that it came from another place since it stayed stable when the fans was changing rpm.
