I have a Dell Inspiron i7559-763BLK 15.6", and in case you can't read the link, it has and i5, 960m, 8gb of RAM, but most importantly, an SSD Drive and no hard drive. This means (I am assuming) that the only moving parts in my laptop are the keyboard and the fans.

Here is an image for what I am looking at. The noise is coming from right around the GPU/CPU, NOT from the fans. The fans are off, and it makes this sound. I know what it would sound like if it was the fan, and it is not so. I got this laptop 2 weeks ago and didn't make this noise until last night. The noise is a constant static, with sporadic screeching noises. It is very quiet, but in a silent room it can get distracting. The fans completely drown it out when they are on. It isn't so much the noise that is making me mad, it is the possibility of damage.

It continues when:
- I restart my computer
- my computer is plugged in
- my computer is not plugged in

It stops when:
- off
- in sleep mode

What could possibly be making this noise, how could it have happened, how can I fix it, and will it cause damage?

Thanks
