    Any clicking, ticking, buzzing, whirring, whining, huffing, puffing and/or other sounds in particular?

    And a screenshot please to confirm this is not about a HDD :p

    Maybe your SSD is HDD in heart. #SSDLGBTQlivesmatter

    There no mechanical parts in SSD to make noise, vibration would be the only mechanical noise factor. Make sure it's secured.
    Or perhaps you have loud fans that vibrate.

    My thought too apart from the Lesbian bit ;)
    I have an old tiny size hard drive that used to fit inside a camera in place of an old style SD card.
    Maybe an enterprising soul uses a tiny interface to make scam SSDs from these old drives.

    Just imagine the opportunity for a niche market for old farts - SSDs with HDD sound emulation!

    +1 for both. :D

    But if that's possible please let the ssds do this high pitched sound of 15k rpm hdds and the cracking sounds on access.
    Then ...

    Hey don't forget the sound of a big ass CRT monitor booting up.



    Has this thread turned into some kind of geek, techno, orgy?

    Here comes the next part (in which I am not so sure about the nostalgy value) - the sound of matrix printer...

    PS And maybe a floppy sound for USB drives?

    @Night Hope sorry for that comment earlier, now back to your issue. As the others mentioned I would check any device near the ssd as the culprit.
    Have a fan connected to the same metal (or somewhere near) where the ssd is located?
    Some ssds are almost empty inside (1 case size for 64/128/256/512/1024 GB models) so depending on your model it could be the resonance of something "connected" to it.

    For example a disk mounted some slots apart from your ssd, but in the same disk tray.

    Anyway a simple solution: dampen the ssd. Dampeners are cheap and easy to mount.

    Replace old case fans or whatever fan is causing the vibration. Unless you had a leaky capacitor somewhere nearby, or it's causing coil whine of sorts at a frequency you can hear on the lower range, it's not the SSD.
    Cheap made power supplies and sometimes cheap motherboards can cause other components to whine - either from the physical unit itself or through the speakers of the computer. So don't rule that out. Sometimes two components interact with line noise (be it from the utility, your house, other appliances on the circuit as the pc is on), in such a way that when either component is tested when hooked to another computer (but not both simultaneously), it won't make any offending sound. Technology is strange like that at times.
    I've seen much worse, at-least it's not letting out 'the magic smoke' or worse, FIRE.

    A post-it note or similar sized scrap of small paper, can be folded many times over, to make something you can shove between the drive and the housing or wherever is vibrating. It doesn't need to be large, even a small piece may fix your vibration issues IF that is what it is.

    Exercises or Exorcism? It depends on the personal fetish. :D
