My laptop is making this weird noise!

  Zahra16 10:03 30 Mar 2016

If I increase the volume it starts to make a weird noise which I'm sure comes from the fan- but it's only when I increase the volume. If I mute my laptop, the sound goes. And if I watch a video and increase the sound, then the sound of the video is like ghosts speaking! I tried to clean the fan, although it was still making the sound. Shall I replace it? any suggestions will be fine, thanks.

fan noise would not increase as you up the volume.

try updating your sound chip drivers.

What make and model of laptop? and operating system?
