Hi there,

I currently have a HP Pavilion Laptop 15-cs0xx series with Intel i7 and a 1TB SSD. It's been making sporadic grinding noises like the ones found in this video here:

I tried giving it a good ol' slap on the casing where the noise is coming from and it stops instantly, followed by an increase in fan output which returns to normal in a few seconds. More recently I've noticed the grinding noise happens more and more frequently at startup.

Anyone know how to fix this? I've found that applying direct pressure to the spot in the casing where the noise comes from helps solve it temporarily. Thanks!
