Elaine, ours does the same thing. It's your fan. If you are still under warranty, don't take the back off. It will void your warranty. But if your warranty has expired, it's pretty simple to unscrew the cover so you can get to the fan. Try vacuuming or using canned air to clean it. You can try WD-40, but don't let it get on other parts as it can damage the boards. (Rick is a computer tech - this comes from him.)
Sometimes, there is nothing wrong with the fan, it just starts making noise - like ours. You can replace it, but that's no guarantee the noise will go away.
