Hello there guys and girls i have been having a strange noise with my Asus f553ma computer since it went to the warranty to get a new hard drive becuse it died i think.
I have messaged asus 2 times now and all they told me was to update my bios wich i cant becuse i have the latest version and also to format my computer wich i did but it had no efect.
So now i dont know what to do, should i take it to the warranty or is it an easy fix.
Bare in mind i have this computer less than an year and it is giving me all these problems.

That sounds like a HDD working.

Doesn't sound strange to me. What can unsettle many is that if a HDD is replaced the sounds change.

...did you unplug your speakers during that recording? Maybe the HDD was moved to a different location than where originally.
