M58P - Grinding rubber sound from the computer

2011-01-07, 8:27 AM

I have a problem with a M58P desktop. now and then I hear a grinding rubber sound from the computer. The computer is working fine and I have also run the diagnostics and no problem/error was reported.

Any ideas what couses the sound ?

An Update.

 

It was not the fan,. It turn out to be the hard disk. The funny thing is - it took two replacement disks to fix the problem. The first one I got had the same noise problem as the one it was replacing..

what is a grinding rubber sound? Usually grinding sound would occur of fan/mechanical bearing wearing out, or that the fan vane is touching something when spinning, or that the drive is unbalanced.
