I bought a laptop last year and it was working perfectly up until two or three months ago when it started making a strange "cricket" noise. At first
it wasn't very loud and it was only occasional, but now it's there all the time. I called the company who made it and they told me to take the laptop
and they would see what the problem was.
They had it for about two weeks and replaced the DVD burner, which, they said, wasn't working. (It was working perfectly alright when I took it to
them, so I don't know what they must have done to it). Well, the thing is they said now the computer was fine, but it is NOT. The noise is still there
and it's driving me insane! I can even hear over the music I'm playing.
I have no idea what it is, so I thought maybe someone here could help me. I've read some threads on other forums and they mentioned the hard drive and
the battery and other things, but the tech guys say there's nothing wrong with the laptop. (Then what's that noise?!)
I think the noise is coming from the upper left side of the laptop, near the power jack (is that what it's called? Sorry for the English, by the way).
Well, anyway, I'm getting a can of gas duster as soon as I can to see if maybe it is the fan as some people in the other forums say. But if it isn't,
what do you guys think it could be? After all, the tech guys cleaned it and checked it out and said there was nothing wrong.
Well, thank you for reading and any help is appreciated
