    My laptop is making this unknown sounds from the computer but when i click on any of the keys the sound stops .

    Here is the youtube video where you can hear the sound. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOxl67NqwrI

    It will be great if someone can help me identify the sounds so that i can fix it myself or get it fixed

    Bumping your own threads is looked down upon here, especially when you do it a whole 3 minutes after you first posted.

    With that said, it sounds like a fan that's on its way out.

    I actually did it 12 hours after the post was posted, It was posted around the same time in AM and then i bumped it in PM.

    Thank you for your help,Is there a software that i can use to know for sure if this is a fan indeed ?

    No. Apart from opening it up and seeing, there's no way to know for sure.

    The hardware test wouldn't pick up a dying fan anyway. The hardware has no way to know that a fan's bearing or motor is on its way out.
