Dell :: E6400: CD/DVD Drive Buzzing Noise

Apr 22, 2009

When I am burning a cd or dvd, the drive makes a really loud buzzing noise that sounds like its coming from some sort of vibration.

If I push the drive in and up just a bit while this happens, the vibrations stop and the noise goes away.

It's recently been making noises, it happened before and I thought it was not a big deal. Until now, it keeps making noises and then freezes the whole laptop.

Dell :: My Latitude E4200 Starts To Make A Buzzing Noise

Jan 1, 2010

Recently my laptop starts to make a high frequency whining noise, almost constantly and rarely stopped.

I tried to locate the component which the noise was originated from, I can only figure out it's somewhere below the memory module, but there is no moving component there, so my biggest suspect is the fan, because if I put my ear to the back of the laptop, except the whining I also heard very minor "clicking" noise.

Another weird thing is, this noise only starts after Windows is loaded, not in BIOS or during booting, although the fan was running at those times.

Dell Latitude E4200 :: Backlit Keyboard Noise - Slight Buzzing

May 4, 2010

I just picked up a e4200 with backlit keyboard and whenever the back light is turned on there is a noise (slight buzzing or hum) that can be heard. As soon as the back light turns off the sound goes away. It's kind of bugging me because you wouldn't think that the back light would add to the decibel level of the laptop..

Dell :: About Hard Disk Noise Of E6400

Apr 17, 2009

I just got my e6400 today, but the hard disk noise is kind of annoying. Even if I do nothing with the OS,

the hard disk light keeps shining and the noise comes along.

Though the sound is little, but it seems to never stop. Is anyone else meets with the same problem like me?

Dell :: High Pitch Noise E6400

Mar 4, 2009

I can hear almost constantly a high pitch noise coming from the area where the key A and S are. what is it?

I doubt that is the HDD since it is more south. Also it's not the fan, I can distinguish the noise made by the fan.

I should probably record it with my microphone.

Dell :: Latitude E6400/E6500 Owners Fan Noise?

Mar 4, 2009

I'd like to ask any E6400 or E6500 owners about their fan noise as I'm considering those machines right now. I'm thinking of going with the Intel 4500 graphics for hopefully less heat and noise than the Nvidia NV160.

How long does the fan stay off while doing basic web browsing? When it turns on does it ramp up to a slow speed or does it blast on and then ramp down to a slow speed? Does this cycle of off and on continue?

The reason I'm asking is I had a Lenovo Ideapad Y430 that was very irritating regarding fan noise. With basic web browsing or even idling the machine the fan would stay off for about a minute or two and then would blast on when it turned on before ramping down immediately to a slow speed for about a minute. Then it would shut off and this cycle would continue over and over. Was very distracting and annoying when in a quiet environment.

I'd like a fan with either consistent fan noise (stays on at slow speed forever) or with no noise at all (stays off forever). How close is the E6400 or the E6500 to this ideal behavior?

I was amazed when I tried out a Dell Studio 1537 that had a fan that didn't turn on at all while web browsing. I could use it for hours and it wouldn't turn on.

Dell :: Latitude E6400 Loud Cracking Noise

Dec 1, 2008

Bought a latitude E6400 a few weeks ago. Every now and again a loud cracking noise can be heard somewhere around the left side of the keyboard. This happens very infrrequently, about 10 times since I have had it.

Before I ring Dell has anyone come across this before?

The noise is like a crack and then a smaller click Sounds like a small peice of plastic just broke or something.

The laptop could be sitting there doing nothing for 20 mins and then the noise happens.

Dell :: Hard Drive Noise

Mar 28, 2009

I just got my M1530 a couple of days ago and I have a few concerns and I wondered if you would be kind enough to comment on.

This is my spec:
XPS M1530 CORE 2 DUO T9300 2.50GHz,800,6MDisplay 15.4" UltraSharp Widescreen WSXGA+ (1680x1050) TFT with TrueLifeMemory Dual Channel 4.0GB (2x2048) 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAMHard Drive: 320GB Free Fall Sensor (7200RPM)8xDVD+/-RW Slim Slot-Load Drive,

including SWBattery XPS Primary 6-cell 56WHr Li-IonGraphics Card 256MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 8600M GTIntegrated Sound Blaster Audigy ADVANCED HD Audio
Firstly, I notice that my hard drive (I assume the hard drive is located on the left palmrest side) always appears to be spinning loudly enough for me to notice. Is this normal? It also makes weird clicky noises intermittently and I have no idea why.

The CPU fan seems to be on an awful lot. I have a Gateway MT6821 and the fan only comes on under heavy load, with the dell it's on almost all the time.

Finally, build quality - I have noticed that the trim that sits around the LCD panel is about 2-3mm away from the screen on the left side. Is this acceptable or should I return and ask for a replacement laptop?

Dell :: 1340 Hard Drive Noise

Dec 10, 2009

I have used my 1340 for about 3 months now and not until recently had I experience a constant hard drive noise.
I don't know how to describe the noise...something like blowing air into water, but in a more subtle sound
It would go away every once in a while...possibly when the laptop is not running as hard...but then after a while it will come back again
It is very annoying especially when I use the laptop at a quiet place...however I don't see any performance issue so far
is that a sign that my hard drive is failing?

Dell :: E6500 Hard Drive Noise

Jan 2, 2009

I just bought a Latitude E6500. Mostly a well built and well equipped notebook I think (poor audio and the fan runs a bit too much though).

My main problem with it is that the hard disk makes a constant noise that I find very annoying at low ambient noise levels. It's not seeks -

it's almost constant. At first I thought it was the main fan running at low speed. But I can see through the vent below that the noise is there even when the fan is not moving (and i8kfangui31 reports that the fan is not active).

Dell :: M1530 Hard Drive Noise

Jan 7, 2009

I did a lot of research already but nothing seems to work . I have a 320 gig 7200rpm hard rive on the xps m1530 and the noise is pretty anoying,

I already changed the bios settings to performance, downloaded the latest driver update and when I install it I get two files that pretty much contain nothing,

I already burned a CD with the ISO file but nothing comes up, just shows up as a blank CD, I tried going to the Device Manager option and update the driver there but it didn't work either.

I found a topic discussing the latest patch R206837 for the hard drive and some users had the same problem but they never replied and said how they fixed it,

Dell :: Optical Drive Noise In Studio 1558?

Feb 6, 2010

I got my Studio 15 notebook yesterday.

Whenever I power on my notebook. I hear one sound twice for a second. There after on 'Dell' screen I hear it once again just before Windows 7 startup screen appears. I think it's from slot optical drive.
Am I correct?

I have never used a notebook before.

So kindly tell me is this normal ? Do optical drives in notebooks make such sounds at startup as well as more noise while using (compared to desktops)

Dell Inspiron 15R :: 5520 - Noise Coming From Optical Drive?

Mar 1, 2013

I had noise coming from my optical drive. The computer randomly checks my optical drive as if I were booting up or put a disk in it.  I took it out, re-seated it and flashed the BIOS.  It seemed to be better for a week or so but it has come back with a vengeance. I keep hearing the click of it accessing at odd times (again, when I insert a memory stick, or am working with pictures, were some times that it makes the noise).  I now crack the door and leave the drive open so it's not accessing on and off all the time.

HP/Compaq :: DV4t DVD Drive Grinding Noise

Oct 21, 2009

i have a DVD+CD writer/reader in my laptop. I barely ever use it but i wanted to back up my iTunes library to a couple of DVDs this morning so i used Nero to do so. At 91% the drive started doing this thing where it would spin really quick, stop, start, make an awful grinding noise for a second, then repeat the same thing over again. After about 10 min of this, the CPU went up to 100% and slowed the computer down to the point where everything froze. So i tried ejecting the DVD but it didn't work so i used a pin to force it open. I tried 3 times on 3 DVDs with no luck..It did however burn a CD successfully which is weird.

I just tried burning another DVD and it stopped at 91% and started the grinding noise again then said the burning failed.

Dell Inspiron 3537 :: High Pitched Noise Where Memory / Hard Drive Are Located

Dec 5, 2014

I have a Inspiron 15 3537 laptop and I noticed that I can hear a high pitched noise where the Memory/hard drive are located. That noise is louder when I put the battery mode on "battery saving", but I still can hear that noise when the battery mode is set to other mode than that. Please note that I switched my hard drive with a SSD, because I thought that it come from here.

My laptop is still on warranty, I bought it recently (July 2014)

I know that there are posts with this issus, but I haven't found a solution yet. 

Also, on an other subjet, is it normal that my battery already lost 10% of its capacity after only 5 month of use?

HP :: Hard Drive Is Making A Loud Noise On Envy 17 Laptop

Nov 10, 2014

I have owned my hp envy 17 laptop for almost 2 years now. Recently my computer has been making a really loud noise and it seems it is working a lot harder than it needs to be. I suspect the fan or the hard drive is the culprit but I have convinced myself it is the hard drive. 
 
When I start up my computer the loud noise begins almost immediately after startup. This noise sounds like the computer is working as hard as it possibly can, almost making a grinding noise. Even after the computer has booted up, this noise continues for another minute or two before it stops, then my laptop becomes quiet. What puzzles me, and leads me to believe it is the hard drive, is the fact my computer get unreasonably hot when the noise occurs; it never used to do this before. 
 
This situation is something I have never heard of before. My laptop for some reason ,when it is moved or bumped, even the slightest, start to "rev" and the hard drive roars; it does this for five minutes or so. It also does this when the laptop is closed, and in "sleep mode"; the slightest bump lets it off like a baby. I suspect that there is a switch, flap or wire that is not attached properly and when moved it triggers the hard drive. 
 
The main thing I do when the sound occurs is I close the laptop lid which puts it in sleep mode and turns off the hard drive, silencing it for the time being. This solution I came across by accident; I turned my laptop sideways when the sound occurs and the sound stops until I put the laptop upright again(Laptop is open).

Dell :: E6400 Matrix Management + External Drive Issues

Jan 3, 2009

so I've been tinkering with the e6400 that I bought off Dell Outlet the other day. I've noticed that when I start or restart my computer with an external drive plugged in (whether it be an actual drive or a flash drive)

the Dell will hang at the Intel Matrix Management screen, and give no indication of anything happening. What I usually have to do then is to turn off the laptop and unplug whatever drive was there.

Any ideas why this happens, and if I can change it somehow? I've seen people mention changing the BIOS to ACHI instead, but I'm not sure if that's a related issue.

Dell :: Can I Move Hard Drive From Thinkpad To Latitude E6400?

May 12, 2009

I've got an old Thinkpad R61i with a Western Digital "Blue" 320gb drive installed in it running Vista Premium.

I bought the drive from Zipzoomfly and installed it into the Thinkpad in January in order to bring back some life to the computer. And it worked; it's fast and quiet.

A few weeks ago, I bought a refurb E6400 from the Dell outlet store. It came with a 160gb hard drive installed.

It's a nice drive. But as the days tick away, I've been thinking of pulling the 320 from the Thinkpad and installing it into the E6400.

I'm mean what the heck, I'll get twice the space, and it's a Western Digital. It's a win win.

Does anyone's do that? Not only that, it gets pretty hot as well, when I put my hand on it(on the label side) it feels really hot, in fact so hot that I have to take my hand off unless I 'made' myself stay there.
