Coil whine sound? HDD or CPU Fan? Laptop

I had my laptop for roughly 2-3 years now and as of late it would start making this coil whine sound that only occurs when it comes back from stand by.

I am at school a majority of the time, and walking from class to class is roughly 5min, so I don't see a reason to do a full shut down.

Warranty has long expired so I opened it up to clean it out. No luck the sound was not produce since it was a fresh start up.

Only difference now is the coil whine doesn't last as long.

Anyone had this problem before and fixed it? Starting to suspect that it is my cpu fan

have you tried to stress the cpu to make the fan spin faster and see if the sound occurs

Just ran one, not too long ago

there is a hum but its not the same noise.

The noise I experience sounds like a jet taking off.

was hoping it wasn't this... Guess its time to back up everything and perhaps invest in a SSD

Thanks for the help.
