Dear Leftdoc, strange computer noises can be just about anything from a fan blowing to a harddrive on its way out to a faulty power supply or simply dust and dirt getting inside the computer and on the fans and stuff. If your Bios is the latest version then don't do anything. I am not a expert but I also know that all computers over time will have a few noises that are basically normal.

Pretty hard to know precisely without getting enough access to find out what the sound is actually coming from. It does sound very like a continually seeking hard drive, but that could be deceptive.

If this is a desktop, there's a old mechanic's trick you can use to isolate where the noise is originating from.  This involves the transmission of sound through a solid material.

 

Take a long handled wooden or plastic spoon and press the spoon end against your ear.  Then start pressing the handle end against the different components inside the case.  When you press this against the component making the noise the sound will be much louder than anywhere else.
