Hi im not having any problem im just a bit curious about my laptop. Since I installed A new cpu the laptop makes weird noises e.g when i scroll down a webpage or do anything simular. Do CPUs even make any noise. I dont think its the hard drive becuase that just been upgraded for a quiet hd.

the noise also occurs when i go throgh the start menu and windos explorer. When i put my laptop in power optimize mode it makes less noise.

More likely to be the fan. Check it has unrestricted movement and that it has been mounted correctly with all the right screws firmly located.
