Dell XPS 13 :: Making High-Pitched Noise

Apr 23, 2013

I recently got a replacement XPS 13 due to my first one having issues with high-pitched noise coming out from somewhere inside. Technicians and Customer Service couldn't point out the culprit so they replaced the laptop altogether. And now I am having the exact same issue on my replacement machine. I see from different forum posts that this issue was discovered as early as May/June 2012 and it is still out there. I assume this might be "standard", but people don't notice it due to the frequency. 

For such a premium machine with a pricy tag on it (the model I got: i7, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD (1080p edition btw) was priced at NOK 10495 with standard options) you'd expect such issues to be non-existant, if not fixed by now. 

I LOVE the XPS 13 in every aspect possible; the lightweight construction, premium feel and solid performance. But I'm often in very quiet areas with this machine, and the noise drives me insane.

It sounded like a mouse or something chewing/clawing away at something. I freaked out I searched the entire room and finally narrowed down the sound to my damn power adapter.

Heres an MP3 I made of the noise.

Apple :: White Macbook Won't Boot And Hd Making Noise

Aug 9, 2009

My friend just gave me her White Macbook pre 2007 i beleive to fix because i fix all her computers but this is the first time im trying to fix a mac . Upon pressing the power button im greeted by the BONG tone and a white screen. Then i start hearing the HD making some very messed up noises witch to me are the fimiliar sound of a hd failure and so i beleive this is the problem. After a minute or two i get a flashing folder with a ? on it witch means it can't find the system files it needs to boot. So i tryed booting from the Tiger discs but it will not boot. Now this is leading me to beleive that it is the logic board. Right now im waiting till morning to buy a torx t8 so i can replace the HD.

Dell Inspiron 1525 :: Making High Pitch Whistling Noise

Dec 20, 2014

I just wanna ask something about my laptop Dell Inspiron 1525 because recently it's making a high pitch whistling noise that i think is coming from the hard disk(not sure). But im sure its not from the laptop's fan. Whenever i turn on my laptop,a whistling noise starts,then the machine dies within 2 seconds,sometimes 5 sec. If i press the power button again, it wont start, its showing no life. Unless i replug the adapter and switch on again. But then again, it dies after a few seconds. Back to replugging the adapter again to switch on. Sometimes it takes 5 tries to finally open my laptop without dying. When it's finally done starting up, whistling noise would go away after a minute or two. Then it's like normal again. No noise, no overheating, no sudden shut off, no hang ups, etc. What could be the problem? I am using the charger provided by Dell and without a battery,just the charger directly from the laptop. Im certain it has nothing to do with the battery thing.

Im done with the diagnostics, no errors. I also tried releasing static electricity on machine by pressing the power button for 30 seconds. But still, the problem keeps on happening every time i power on my laptop.

Additional info: I tried removing the HD this morning and use a linux live usb. but still the problem and the whistling sound is there.

HP/Compaq :: Making A Recovery Disc

Aug 13, 2009

I'd like to upgrade my laptop's hard drive, but I did not pay for the backup discs at the time of purchase. As far as I know, the only way to get my OS onto the new HDD would be through a recovery disc.

I went to Start>Recovery Manager>Recovery Disc Creation and was greeted with the screen. After pressing next, I immediately receive the 'cancel' screen telling me "Cancellation in progress... Recovery disc creation will resume where you left off the next time you start the program", but it doesn't.

Is there another way to get my OS onto the new HDD?

Mar 5, 2010

I have 13 inch sony Z 820db laptop not very long ago, for some reason the fan makes quite a bit of noise compare to other models that i own(sony ns190d laptop). Is this suppose to be normal for this laptop? Does anyone else who has this laptop feels the fan noise for this laptop is sufficiently higher compare to other laptops? I can really feel the air pumping out when i place my hands near the ventilation and i only use the laptop for surfing on the net. no heavy application running what so ever. Also have a question about the battery life. They said the standard battery life could last up to 5.5 hours, but mines only last 3 and half hours even just surfing on net.

HP/Compaq :: Hp G60-230US Making Recovery Disc

Jan 12, 2009

I just last week bought an Hp G60-230US at Office Depot. Had them install Microsoft Office and clean up my computer. When I got home and tried to make a recovery disc, I keep getting a message that says "this computer does not have a drive capable of creating cd's or dvd's. Contact HP" I did this, and they tried to tell me it was the type of dvd I was trying to use (Maxell). I know Hp's can be touchy, but I don't think the type of disc would give me that type of error. Hp said they could send me a copy of the recovery discs. But my concern is with that message. Am I doing something wrong, or is my computer messed up? Any thoughts would be appreciated. I plan on calling Hp tonight, and possibly calling Office Depot to see if they did something bad to my computer when they "cleaned it up".

HP/Compaq :: My 8510p's HDD Is Making A Scratching Sound

I've noticed that my 8510p's HDD (which is a Toshiba) makes a loud scratching sound for about a second every week or every two weeks. I ran HD Tune's error scan and it came up with no damaged blocks. What's wrong? Should I be worried? I've already backed-up my important stuff.

HP/Compaq :: Dv5-1102tx- Making Another Set Of Recovery Disks

Mar 14, 2009

I'm using a HP Pavilion dv5-1102tx Entertainment Notebook. I bought this notebook at the end of January 2009.

After reading many threads telling me to create recovery disks, I decided to create a set for myself. "Yay!" I said to myself when the process was all done.

Then, I went to the drivers/software download page for my laptop, and lo and behold, I found a patch that, quote "corrects the information that is burned to the User Created Recovery Disc (UCRD)." unquote.

The link is here: [url]

Now, seeing as I can't create another set of recovery disks, I have 2 questions:

1) Is there a way for me to make the computer allow me to burn another set of recovery disks after I installed the patch?

2) Do I need to install the patch at all?

Dell Inspiron N5050 :: Laptop Will Not Boot / Load - Clicking Noise

Dec 10, 2014

I have a Inspirion N5050 laptop. A few weeks ago, it started running slow and Adchoices ads appeared. I removed them. I ran a scan using AVG, which detected nothing. I shut down the laptop as a precaution. Now it will not load Windows. I press the power button, the dell logo appears, then I hear what I think is the hard drive click, then the screen goes dark for a second, then the logo and a click and so on and so on. I am able to get to the menus with f2 and f12, what to do next. Safe mode will not respond ( I cannot get into it).

HP/Compaq :: HP DM1 Fan Noise

Jan 27, 2010

I just bought a DM1 and noticed that the fan is always on, even when i run on battery and is doing nothing but idle on the desktop. The fan is pretty high pitch and therefore pretty audible.

I just read on other posts that Speedstep is actually a bluff on the SU2300, it doesn't trottle clock, thats probably why the fan is on even when idling on battery.

HP/Compaq :: CPU Noise Mistery

Jan 14, 2010

The CPU noise(high pitch hissing/buzzing/whining) especially when the CPU is in idle status bothered me. I tried the little software RMclock, It reduced the noise but did not eliminated it. I had to return 3 HP dv5t laptops because of this flaw. After a lot of research, I realized this problem happens more or less on almost all laptops of different brands using all kinds of CPUs. It's just a matter of level of tolerance. Some noises are not audible except you pressed your ear again the CPU area and listen very hard to tell it from the fan noise.

I got an HP dv7t recently and loved it, but this CPU noises bothers me again, what is different from previous situations is that the CPU noises does not become audible until you plug in any USB devices, once the USB device is unplugged the noise just become much less audible.

HP/Compaq :: HP ENVY 15 Gen 2 Noise

Feb 14, 2010

I just bought a HP ENVY 15 11xxtx series and have a few quirks that you guys might help me out with.

There is a high-pitch morse-code like sound coming from the front grills of my envy. I have gone through 3 units with the same problem and am tired of replacing it again. I just have to accept the fact that this might be a design problem. Anyone else have this annoying sound.

It is definitely not a Hard drive whirl nor is it the fans. It seems to be coming from the left CPU side. On one of the units, I did a SSD upgrade and the sound is also still there. It gets pretty obvious when i scroll down a webpage (It sounds pulsating) or do any task that either accesses the HD or is CPU intensive (Morse-code like sound) .

HP/Compaq :: HP DV5 Excessive Fan Noise On Startup

Jun 26, 2009

For the past few weeks my DV5 has been behaving oddly when booted up from a cold start. The fan switches on producing an incredibly annoying rattle and squeal that almost sounds as if a bearing has gone in it. It's the same noise you occasionally hear from desktop fans that are clogged with dust and gunk.

It usually lasts for only a few seconds on initial bootup and is all over by the time Vista loads.

However, this laptop spends 95% of its time on my desk in my dorm room, residing on an improvised laptop stand for better cooling. I took it into the shop I bought it from now that I'm home and whilst they were happy to look at it, it just wouldn't replicate what I had been describing to them when they were listening to it. Murphy's law I guess. Anyway, they thought the only way to sort it out would be to leave it with them and they would try it daily till it it reared its head. Not knowing how long it would take to get over its stage fright (and needing some information off it) I declined that offer!

Has anyone noticed similar traits or symptoms in their machines? If so, how did you remedy it? I'm really tempted to pull it apart myself but it is only 7 months old so well within the warranty period that I may put in jeopardy.

HP/Compaq :: Arelaptop Fan Noise Problems Prevalent

Oct 21, 2009

With Windows 7 about to drop, and HP rolling out with their new laptops (like the dm3t and Probook 5310m), I'm seriously looking at getting a HP to replace my old computer. However, I've been reading about there being a lot of Fan Noise problems with their laptops. Specifically, I've heard that the fan is always on and blowing, even when the laptop is idling. How prevalent is this, especially in the dm3 (for those already with one), and the Probook line (I'm looking at getting the 5310m)?

HP/Compaq :: Presario C500 Fan Noise And Grind

Nov 5, 2009

i have a presario c552us laptop and it recently started making weird noises around the fan underneath. i took a look and it seems to be coming from the fan. it sounds like some1 stuck something in there and its hitting the fan blades. doesn't happen all the time either. when the fan is spinning, sometimes its great(like right now) and other times it sounds horrible.

i took apart the whole laptop and cleaned out all the dust, especially in the heatsinks and fan assembly. it seems to spin fine when i use canned air on the fan blades. it has the normal high pitch fan spin without the grinding noise and what not.

not sure what the deal with that is, but maybe the fan has issues gripping or spinning itself.

so it sounds like i pretty much need to replace the fan and the motor.

can i replace just the motor and fan? or do i have to buy the whole assembly with the weird shaped heatsink?

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.

HP/Compaq :: HP Dv9000 Static Noise From Speaker

Mar 23, 2009

I just got an HP Pavillion dv9000 laptop a few days ago and everything is great, except for this static noise coming from the speaker. It kind of sounds like when you have your TV on a blank screen, but you have the volume as high as it goes. Every now and then there's a little pop or crack sound too. Some important things to note:

- It was a refurb

- The noise immediately stops when the volume is muted

- All drivers are up to date

- If I go into the volume settings, I can slide the volume all the way over to the right side, and the noise stops, but any amount of volume going through the left side and the noise is back

- The noise is the same at any volume level

- If I plug in headphones, there is no noise through the headphones, it only happens on the speakers

At first I thought it wasn't anything big, just a driver update or just a matter of breaking the laptop in, but now after a few days it's starting to get annoying. I don't want to leave the sound on mute all the time, and even when I am listening to audio I can still hear this noise.

HP/Compaq :: HDX16t Monitor Makes Noise

May 4, 2009

This thread will be very exclusive to those who may have an SSD in their HDX16T.

Particularly and Intel SSD X25-M.

Ever since I've got the intel SSD this HDX16t monster is DAMN quiet. And I mean not even whisper quite, its like the notebook is NOT-ON-quite.

That's how dead silent this notebook really is.

The thing/issue is that I began to notice that the monitor makes this constant buzz when it's on. And it only get louder when the brightness goes up.

It's not very loud at all. You'd have to put your ear about 3 inches away in order to hear it. But the fact that it does.

However, I would of never been able to hear the monitor noise with a regular HDD and I'd be totally fine with that. A regular HDD is way to loud now that I've been on SSD for a while.

But the fact that I can hear it makes it weird.

I can almost be sure that if you do not have an SSD, you'd not be able to hear what I am talking about. If you can hear it with a regular HDD, then your monitor must be SUPER loud.

Check back with me to see if you can hear this noise if any of youSSD users on the HDX16T out there.

HP/Compaq :: High-pitched Noise In APavilion Dv7-3065dx

Dec 18, 2009

I bought a new notebook, a HP Pavilion dv7-3065dx, everything was going ok, no problems at all, opened the box, charged the battery, formatted with a fresh Win7 installation. No problems so far. However, since the second day of having it, I began to notice an annoying high-pitched noise coming from the top-left area of the notebook.

The noise is not continous, it mostly appears only when I hover over the items in the start or context menus, and other selectable items as well, such as the minimize/maximize/close buttons of the windows. It is also audible when Windows is in the "Please wait... Booting up..." screen and when minimizing/maximizing windows.
