lol, reminds me of the time when my crap comp (my current one) used to make weird buzzing noises upon startup, i wacked it a couple and it usually settled down, but then it used to crash 10 mins afterwards everytime upon doing that.
I sent it off for repairs, and when it came back it had diagnostic test reports attached to it, i read them and found out the the problem was "hardware and software corruption" (both of which were 'probably'
due to me oh well
I later realised that all i really had to do initially was to blow the dust outta the fans that was causing the problem with some compressed air, and i also decided to lubricate the central screw (which spun the fan) with motor oil for good measure, and voila!!
no more noise
