My Toshiba laptop is making a loud whirring noise. What causes this!

It's made the noise before but usually gets better and quiets down. Is it the fan? Doesit need cleaning? If so, how do I clean it?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

For everyone experiencing issues with Toshiba L500-20z making a horrible whistle when audio plays, try to delete and reinstall audio drivers. For some reason the updated drivers turn the speakers into a medieval torture.
