I apologize in advance if I am starting this thread in a wrong sub forum. Additionally, a many thanks to the website, its staff, community and others (e.g. who read, respond.)
I own a Dell XPS 15 9550. It is about one year since I bought it. I use it, but not to a frequency of every day and for how ever many hours peer week. I recently moved and brought my laptop with me; however, I am suspicious if it is possibly damaged from transporting it.
I try to consciously use my laptop with care and monitor its condition. Lately, I've been using Speccy in an attempt to observe its condition, especially temperature.
The other day, I noticed that if I am holding my laptop and tilt it to an almost vertical position with the monitor extended, whether it's on or off, I can hear a noise or two in the laptop as if pieces are moving around or something. They aren't loud. One noise is almost a clicking noise as if inserting a flash drive. The other sort of sounds like water dripping (but I have never spilled anything on/in laptop.)
From what I read, there should be no noise from the hard drive because it is an SSD. With that said, is it possible that a part(s) of the laptop is loose, damaged, and so on? Is there no problem? Is the condition and performance of the laptop not an issue? I will state that the laptop does not seem to be performing any differently. It seemingly runs well, is fast as it has been and so on.
May I also ask if there is an average temperature for the laptop and if the fan might be the problem?
Much obliged as always.
