Yeah, that's a good point. If the source of the sound is not easily discernible, a make-shift stethoscope using a paper towel tube should work. And, being made of paper/cardboard, there is no danger of ESD (static discharge) or shorting something out.

I understand. Intermittent problems are always the most difficult to troubleshoot - especially if you cannot duplicate them on-demand. But for sure, because this could be a hard drive, don't delay backing up your important data.
