Strange noise upon boot up.

  • Problem - Upon boot up there is a strange noise that sounds like coil wind but it goes away after a few seconds. This only happens the first time I turn the computer on for the day. There is also a smell of something burning but my cpu temp is at 30 and gpu is 37. This started happening about a week ago.

Fan is touching something, or bad bearing. 

 

Check that the mesh filter isn't rubbing against any of the intake fans.

So the noise stops after a few seconds and everything sounds normal, the only thing left is a burning like smell. Just checked and mesh isn't touching anything either.

Sounds like a bad fan, or something jammed in it? you could unplug which one it sounds like it might be coming from and see if it goes away. Then take that fan out and inspect it, possibly RMA it.

I guess I can try that tomorrow. I'll have to unplug a different fan each day until I find the one failing. It just sucks that the problem goes away.
