Having problems with your Acer PC Desktops ?

My acer aspire ase380 emits a short buzzing sound periodically. it sounds more like a speaker buzz and not really my hard drive , does anyone know what it may be? (Hi-temp warning?possibly?)

Answers :

Could it possibly be a wire rubbing off a fan inside? ive experienced that before. Does the sound start as soon as you turn on the computer or after a while?
