Ringing noise on starting laptop

When I try to start my laptop and while it is still in the early moments it creates a loud ringing noise. If I stop it sometimes it will start with no problem?
Help please.

Without wanting to sound too pessimistic it could be anything from a worn fan to the hard drive warning you a bearing is about to cave in. I would strongly recommend backing up all data just in case.

Is the mike switched on? Could be feedback.
