Does it come from a specific area?

Could be a fan hitting something. I'd open it up and listen.

It sounds like something is hitting the fan. I am not confident enough to take it apart. Can I just take the cover off? I really don't want to mess it up, I am having surgery soon that will keep me in bed for 6 weeks, I know it may sound stupid but it is hard to be confined with nothing.

If you're not comfortable opening it definitely don't.

I'm not recommending this, but if it were mine I'd probably shake
the hell out of it so the wire or whatever moves away from the
fan. Works for me on lots of old desktops I'm too lazy to "really"
fix.

Thank you, I sprayed air into it and it must have moved something because it's not as bad.
