For a few months I start to notice that my laptop starts to make a cracking noise while I'm using it (Though, I'm not so sure between 'clicking' and 'cracking' noise.. kind of 50%) 

Likely from the left side of my laptop.. But just once in a while...

Betting it's either the fan or the hard drive.


So I'm wondering if this would cause any problems later on if I'm not solving this? Not sure if this related to when I start to carrying it around at school for doing works.


My laptop is just around one year old only. It usually runs very quiet, so there's only the cracking noise I noticed recently, kind of 2 clicks sound but it rather sounds like cracking. My laptop model is Sony Vaio VPCEH37FG.

Intermittant is always hard to fix. It might be a loose piece of something around the cooling fan. If the trash is softer than the fan blade then it might get chopped up and drop out. If it's harder it might damage the fan. Either way it would be a good idea to have a technician look at it.
