I would have to guess that it just might need to be blown out?? Have you tried to use the CD/DVD rom and did that make it start making that sound?? It could be the Power Supply? The Best think you can do is take it to your local repair shop and have them look at it. If you can replicate it using something other than facebook then we can nail it down more!!

When you have the side off, check and make sure there are not any wires hitting the fan blade

Just to be clear, You sure it isn't coming from the speakers of either the inside or outside?? You have one speaker in the desktop and a sound card with a plug. See what happens if you unplug them both. Does the desktop have a vibration when it is doing this? Like something is gyrating in the case??
