So i have a laptop and when i play games like ETS2 or ccd and use the gpu and cpu and ram at full power, it starts making weird squeaking and grinding. It's not loud; only when i put my ear up to it but seems weird.
Also on standby when the laptop is not using anything the fan sounds like it doesn't run at constant RPM. It goes something like this: it revs up a bit and it revs down; it's not constant and sounds unhealthy. Temps are ok, 70 degrees celsius when gaming.

So any advice? Also it's a hp pavilion 15 (3 years old lol) and i've never had a issue with it
I can't open it up because it's a hp duh but i cleaned the fan with a vacuum by putting it up the intake hole and yea.
So some help?

Have you ever heard of "coil whine". What you're describing sounds a lot like it, imo. If you need a video, literally google "coil whine video" and you'll have some major YouTube techguys explaining what it is and sometimes even how to minimize it.

If that's not at all what is happening, let me know. :)
