Just bought a new HP Envy, thought I would check here before I made the trek back up to the store. it seems to get worse when using the disk space (reading or writing) and sounds a bit like what you would expect a disk to sound link, but its an SSD. Working on linking some audio. Im wondering if its not an issue, or if I should go and get it fixed/replaced as that's going to be easy in the first 14 days.

Actually, it shouldn't make much noise and if it is that new, less than two weeks, it shouldn't need to be repaired, they should exchange the laptop for another one. No new device should give you any problems.
any idea what exactly it is? it might not even be the SSD

Update: took it back to the store, they openly gave me a new one thinking it might be a fan problem. the new one has a somewhat similar sound with less scratching, il take it as a loud processer/fan combo
