    My Dell laptop is making this weird noise right around the back and it sounds like a motorcycle, but not that loud.
    Could anyone tell me what the hell going on and how can i fix it???
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Same deal here as well: Sometime my HP laptop gives me this weird noise from it's fans. Also it powers of suddenly some times. Anyone know how to fix this?

    Maybe your hard drive is failing. That would suck if it died and you couldn't get it fixed over the holidays.

    It's probably just a fan, it's easy for them to make a lot of noise if they become defective or something is caught. In fact, my friend has an HP laptop with a screwed up fan, sounds like a lawn mower, he's sending it in back to HP to get the fan replaced.

    I read online that the Dell Inspiron 1525 tends to work hard keeping the laptop cool, but also tends to make annoying noise, but it's not making noise anymore.

    If the laptop were to get damaged, i would just get rid of it and get a new one, repairs are not worth it.

    Well, if it makes those noises again, just shut it off for a while. The fans probably can't keep up with the heat build up in there and you just need to cool it down. You never want your laptop to sound like a motorcycle, thats for sure.

    Look at the post above you, i know it's the fans, it just that they work too hard.
    I'm gonna go buy an external fan to put under to keep the heat controlled.
