    hello, it very rarely happens to me when I turn on my laptop I hear a strange sound, I think it comes from the processor. it only happens when I turn on the laptop and lasts for 1 minute. why is this happening, my laptop is lenovo ideapad 520-15ikb (i5 8gen, 8 ram ddr4, ssd 512)? this is the video link: https://streamable.com/f97y82

    Sounds like the processor fan. When they first turn on they are cold and tend to make some noise and vibrate if they are bad. After a minute or so they warm up and quietn down. It may just need a good cleaning. Make sure there is no disc in the DVD drive. (If it has a DVD drive) It can make a noise like that if the disc is a little off balance. Here is a tear down video on YYouTube to help you get to the fan to check that.

    thank you @gray1, it is very possible that the sound is coming from the cold because my laptop is in a cold room.
