My computer started producing a high pitched whine that sounds like a fan is stuck on extra high. Now I notice that the CPU temperature is affected and is running higher. At first I thought that maybe the old video card fan was maybe stuck because I first noticed it after watching some music videos. But it's not going off. Could it be the old OEM stock CPU heatsink or could it be the old video card?
When the MB and new CPU were recently replaced, I was told that it wasn't necessary to replace the OEM heatsink which came with the old CPU, even though I wanted to change have it replaced with something better. They said they didn't have anything else on hand.
Any suggestions? It sounds really annoying and I don't go into the case to work on it at all.
Do the regular fans start producing a high pitched whining sound when they start to go?

Answer:High Pitched Fan Whine?

well, if you can, go into the case and just slowly stop each fan for only a fraction of a second, and if it stops, then that fan is out.

I have been getting a high-pitched (but not very loud) whine intermittently from the computer - it sounds like its coming from the top left hand corner of the keyboard.  It will stop if i move the computer, or turn it over, or hit it. but a few seconds later it will start up again. unplugging the power cord seems to help, but that doesnt work if i want to keep the computer on for more than 1/2 hour. the whine/squeal/noise has been happening more and more frequently.I have an X41 Tablet, Type 1869-5CUI'm running Windows XP Tablet.

Answer:High pitched intermittent whine

Mine does the same thing, but usually only when it's plugged in, and charging from below ~90% or so. I have several power adapters (since all thinkpads designed before lenovo have the same power adapter plug/voltage etc). I was using one older style adapter plugged in at my desk, and the one that came with my laptop in my backpack. It's weird, but the old one makes the laptop make the high pitched noise. Any louder it would hurt my ears pretty bad. It's definitely not the power adapter that makes the noise. I think my older adapter is damaged, or somehow creates a less clean power than the new one, but I would have to use an oscilloscope to find out. Mine is so loud, that I can't pinpoint where exactly the sound is coming from, it's just kind from everywhere.Does yours change pitch or loudness at all depending on how much power it's using (like depending on the cpu step speed, screen brightness etc)? I really have no idea why it does it. My laptop is still under warranty, and I'm thinking about sending it in.

Its been going on sense I formatted about a week ago.
It is coming from inside the tower... Its not The HD, PSU, gfx card or dvd roms. I cant pinpoint it exactly but it sound like its coming from the CPU area its not a loose wire either.
I have opened it up a few times and moved things around and socket/re-socketed things.

The most odd thing about the nose its not 100% all the time, it seems to be whenever im doing something like opening up a window or scrolling over a button like its somehow linked to the cpu or something.
Thx for any help... im hoping someone has had this problem before.

Answer:High Pitched whine sound

First I would clean everything thoroughly with a can of air. Next I would reseat everything (as you've already done).

See if maybe a wire is touching the CPU fan.

My last thought is that a capacitor on the motherboard could be failing. I know that sounds weird, but I remember a post a while back about the same issue, and the person pinpointed the capacitor that was making a high-pitched whining sound. This could be the same issue on your motherboard.

Answer:High pitched whine with fan noise?

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that you are getting a high pitched whine from your Lenovo ThinkPad T440s.
 
Refer this knowledgebase and disable power management of the CPU in BIOS.
 
If the sound that is heard is not affected by either of the above said setting changes, then check for other possible causes including the hard disk, memory, microphone & audio settings, AC adapter pack. It could be even an issue with the CPU/System board. Also, check if the battery is causing the buzz.
 
Please let me know the happenings!
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

My T530 laptop has suddenly developed a high pitched whine after using it a few years. Using JGFFTViewer on my iPhone shows that there are peaks at 8khz and 15-17khz. The 15-17khz frequencies are most annoying as they are right at the edge of my hearing. Plugging in a mouse or keyboard into any of the USB 2.0 ports makes the sound louder. Moving both to USB 3.0 reduces the whine. Even without the mouse and keyboard the whine is still audible. I've recently upgraded my bios to 2.67. Could that have caused the issue? I've tried disabling power management in the bios with little to no difference. 

Answer:T530 High Pitched Whine

I found another app SpectrumView that does a better job and attached a screen shot:https://imgur.com/a/ulaDB Notice the peak at 16khz that approaches the level of the office air conditioning. There is also a peak around 20khz but that is probably inaudible to the human ear.

I recently updated my Bios, and now I get this nasty high pitched whine from my PC speakers and Headphones.

However, it has some triggers.

If the computer isn't doing anything and I am not touching the mouse, the sound is barely audible. Yet, as soon as I move the mouse it comes in and out as the mouse moves.

Similarly, if I open an internet window of a program the whine gets persistent and will not go away until I close the web browser.

System spec's:
Asus P6T Deluxe V2
ATI Radeon 4870 X2 HD
Core i7 920
Windows Vista 64

I have had this computer for a while and no such problem until I updated the Bios in an effort to fix an issue with CoD:MW2 (Which I am beginning to regret buying)

Hey So here's the problem. For a few weeks now, the PC that my sister uses has been making a strange noise. It has only been making it for 3-5 seconds or so after being first turned on, it's intermittent, and I've not gotten around to trying to work out what the problem was until now.

The PC has a few CCFLs in it, and I figured it was perhaps a faulty inverter. However, that is not the cause of the problem. I've also figured out that it's not any of the case fans, or the PSU (though my only way of testing if it were the PSU or not, was to power up the case fans & CCFLs without the rest of the system, so perhaps the problem is only caused with a larger power drain...furthermore, as the problem is intermittent, it may simply not be occurring now that I test the PSU on its own).

I think it can only be something on the motherboard (besides my concerns about it still perhaps being the PSU...), the PC speaker (though I fail to see why, and it really doesn't sound like it's coming from a speaker...), the graphics card, or the graphics card cooler (which I can't power without the card being on, so it's a bit hard to check..).

Now, the last time I turned it on the whine failed to stop, I had to power down the PC. That's really what prompted me to get on it and try to figure out what it is. But, I'm at a loss.

Actually, there is one thing, one little clue, that again points me to the PSU....Once, when I happened to be the ... Read more

I disabled popup and popdown, disabled c4, tried HLT.. no luck anywhere. Whine is not just in Windows, as soon as cpu starts the Whine starts. Thoughts?

Answer:New W510 - High Pitched Whine/Sqeal Using Battery

Yeah, I get the same thing.  I heard a lot of people saying they have the same noise from the cpu when on battery.  I hear it's the sound of the voltage regulators that adjust the speed of the CPU.  You can stop it by turning off the adaptive CPU power, but then you lose the power savings.  I heard some people sent their cpu back for a replacement, but I haven't heard whether it successfully fixed the issue.

I received my new Spectre a couple of days ago and almost immediately noticed that whenever the notebook is fully charged but still connected to power and turned off it emits a very audible high pitched whine. When the notebook is switched on that whine disappears and is replaced with a relatively quiet but audible coil whine. I tried fixing this by turning off USB charging as suggested in another thread but this did nothing for me. I don't mind the coil whine, but the charge whine is quite a bit worse and pretty obnoxious.

Hi everybody,

my laptop is 24 hours old yet I'm getting this high-pitched whine coming from the left hand side near the fan exit. I don't hear it at all when running on mains power, only on the battery. Any idea what this is and why this happens?
Also, is it 'normal'? I wouldn't have thought so!

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Satellite A100: high pitched whine when running on the battery

Hello,

I would be hard pressed to say its a battery issue. But likely a MB problem. Thing is to try it with a different battery and see if it works normally without the noise. If not, then the battery is the problem. Then try with a different AC Adapter. Does it make the noise with another AC Adatper? If you answered yes to either of those, then the problem is the MB.

If the answer was no, then you know what the problem is and can take it to your ASP to have them order parts.

It's a ThinkPad W500 4064A12, running Vista 64 bit on a SSD.I notice that there is a frequent high-pitched "chattering" at times when the machine is running. The chattering comes and goes. It is less pronounced when running Balanced vs. High Performance power settings. Balanced is quieter. Power Saver is the quietest mode of the three. The sound is similar to head clatter on a mechanical HDD. There is no chattering during boot-up and shutdown, or when running a non-Windows interface.My T60 units do not have this "chatter" running XP.I am assuming this is a ATI Mobility FireGL V5700 characteristic in Vista. I never noticed this in Windows 7 on the same machine. Any ideas or experiences on this annoyance?(I am running this install on a Intel solid state drive. Yes, I know, Vista isn't too "ssd aware" but I'm giving it a try anyway.)I've even gone to the "Classic" settings (non-Aero, etc.) and there is no difference. It all seems to be in the video vs. power settings.thanks!

Answer:Strange high pitched whine/chattering with W500 running Vista 64bit

Most likely, it's the CPU. Otherwise, it might be the SSD, but this is unlikely.Try using RMClock and undervolting the CPU. It might help.

Just bought a refurbished X100e.  I am happy with it, especially after upgrading from 1GB of ram to 3GB. However, there is a beeping high pitched squeal that the machines emits non stop when running on battery power.  It's like 2 or 3 beeps per second, usually in rythem but occasional does it rapid fire a bit.  It is not there when it is plugged in.  It is also triggered when I type or when I scroll up and down with the up/down keys on the keypad.  If I hold down any button, such as backspacing a line or scrolling down a page with the down key, the beeping squeal is given a rapid fire effect for every backwards or downwards action. My power settings are on maximum performance.  I have not tampered with any other settings whatsoever.  I am running Windoes 7 Pro. Is there a solution to this?  Is it a peice of defective hardware?

Just bought a new mobo (ASRock 775V88) and P4 3.4Ghz and installed everything just fine. It has a high pitch whine that I can't find, however. It's an intense whine that hurts my ears to the point where I've had ringing all day in my left ear! It's unacceptable and unbearable.

I can't find where the whine is coming from. It seems to only manifest when processing is occurring. When I boot up it doesn't start whining until running through the BIOS. When running Windows it doesn't whine unless I'm opening an app. When I run games it whines continuously.

I've unplugged or taken everything out (PCI/AGP cards, IDE drives, RAM, monitor, speakers, EVERYTHING) and booted the bare mobo in the case w/power supply and the whining still occurs. I've isolated the CPU fan and case fans and have disabled them each in turn and that didn't fix the whine. I've tightened screws on the mobo, that didn't help. Where is it coming from?? How can I make it stop?

On a side note, after using this new PC for a couple of days, the BIOS has stopped letting me into setup during POST by hitting F2. That's not as critical but also something that I'd like to fix.

Do I have a bad CPU or motherboard that I shold RMA back??

Please help!! Any ideas?

Thanks much,

greetings everyone  I received my x201 a few weeks ago, and by and large I am pleased with it, except for the fact that at random times there will be a high pitch whine coming from the back left of the computer.  I've done a fair bit of research on the problem, and I know it has to do with the power states of the processor (which is the core i7-620m on mine), and I have found no general solution to the problem.  I found the only thing that stops this whine from occurring on my laptop is disabling the cpu power management in the BIOS and setting the cpu power level in the power manager to its lowest setting.  This is really inconvenient as it kills the battery life and really restricts the capabilities of the processor.  I was wondering if anyone else was having this problem on the x201, or if it is a problem lenovo can fix?

Answer:x201 high pitch whine

My advice would be to record the noise on a microphone and send it to Lenovo technical support they should be able to find some sort of solution they might even replace the mainboard.If they decide to do this backup your important documents you might be without your laptop for a while if you don't have onsite warranty repair support.

I found out it had something to do with the lcd, when I touched the lid, adjust the screen back and forth, it would go away for a short while but come back. I inspected the screen a bit more closely, and to my disgust, in the down right corner the plastic beneath the screen was bulging out a little, peaking down between the plastic and the lcd, I could see what I think was a red and white wire (here comes Macgyver!!!) that had somehow gotten in between from down under. I took a small screwdriver and was able to push the wires back inside, behind it all, the plastic chirped back in place, bulge gone, and so was the high pitch for good. I'm using a ultrabay hdd caddy now, that too can sometimes make a noise from the drive within it. Take a piece of paper and nudge in between the laptop casing and the caddy, and the sound/vibration is gone. I think some quality left these laptops when Ibm left them to lenovo, thats for sure.

I recently bought a lenovo yoga 3 14 inch, but upon using it, I noticed a high pitch sound emanating from the device. I contacted lenovo's techical support, and they sent me a replacement laptop. However, the replacement laptop had the same issue. Both had a frequency of about 16000hz and 34 decibals. Do any of you guys have suggestions as to how to alleviate this problem? Because as of now, I can barley use my laptop since this sound is so annoying.

Answer:Coil Whine/High Pitch Sound

I have the same problem with mine, purchased a couple of weeks ago. Sent it back once to Lenovo and they replaced the CPU fan, but that didn't help. Still waiting to see what the next step is. If it's not solved in the next couple of months, I'll ask for a change of model, or a full refund. This is some appalling quality control on Lenovo's behalf.

I have been reading around about other threads I didn't quite get an answer... ok I just got a brand new vaio I have been having various problems with it just small trying to work it out... just about everything is fixed except when I run a program I get a high pitched noise... I don't mean just any program I mean programs such as counterstrike, or sometimes a virus scan, I know it's the fan speeding up to keep cool, but is it supposed to make a high pitched noise?
 

Answer:CPU fan high pitched

The smaller the fan you have, the higher its pitch.

And a high RPM 80mm fan is pretty high pitched.

The 40mm ones are just unbearable, as I found out today. But I can't remove it as its in my new 24port switch.

Question: High pitched

Whenever I record through my line in socket on my sound card there is always a high pitched squeeling noise in the background. Ive used programs to remove it but that also reduces the quality of the sound.
I thought it might be the cooling fans causing it. that is the only thing i can think of other than the card is no good.

Hi forum,

I've recently purchased a Toshiba P750-113, and for the last few days have played games on the laptop, watched a few movies and all has gone well. Been a happy customer. Until recently that is.

Out of the blue, having about 4 days of usage out of the laptop, I boot up Windows 7 as usual to find a high pitch whistle sound, whining at me. Its a rather distinct sine noise, sounds electrical. I've checked the speakers, and the noise is not from coming from there. The noise is coming from underneath the laptop, specifically at the top left of the base (if sitting on my lap).. It's not pointing at the harddrive compartment or fans.

The noise begins only when the Windows login screen appears, and then continues to whistle away for the duration Windows 7 is open. The sound is not present while booting the machine, only when Windows has loaded.

There are a few power saving modes on my laptop, and if I use the Eco mode, the noise stops, in fact the laptop could be mistaken for being silent. In power saving mode, the noise is still present, but very not as frequent. I've tried running ati tool and prime95 in 'eco mode' to see if the sound level fluctuates at all - just to narrow down if it was the Cpu or Gpu, but there is no noise! So in Eco mode all is fine.
I wish I could cope with leaving Eco on all the time, but as you could imagine its not a mode used largely for gaming.

I've read through a few forums in dispair, to find a few people also ha... Read more

Answer:CPU whine or sharp high pitch noise and possible solution.

the intel "CPU whine" is a well-known issue and will happen regardless of OS installed (linux included).   it's most common when using any power management scheme besides "high performance".   pull the a/c plug while using your current setup and you'll probably hear it shortly thereafter. one workaround is to disable CPU power management in the BIOS.   however, you're still likely to hear it when on battery power. the reason why the updated power management driver made more noise is because it probably changed your power scheme in some way.   none of my current/former core2duo-equipped thinkpads (T61p, X61, X61T, and X300) ever made the CPU whine more or less simply by changing drivers or software.   it was always done via various power management settings.

Hi, Is anyone else experiencing a high frequency whine (not fan noise) coming from the vents? It's probably in the range of 10 to 15 khz and is incredibly distracting. This problem has been known to plague a few core ix chips of all makes; however, some makes of laptop are more prone than others. I moved to a second yoga 13 and am still suffering from the same problem. I will probably have to do another exchange, but first I want to see if anyone else has been dealing with this issue or if there is some sort of fix? A little research showed me that the whine may be the result of poor energy management and can be fixed by not allowing the cpu to idle. But, this heats up the laptop in a matter of seconds and the roaring fans make that not a viable solution. Hope someone out there can help! 

Answer:High Frequency whine from motherboard - Lenovo yoga 13

I think I have this issue as well, I notice it more coming through the keyboard, and seems to be in an off-on-off-on "beeping" pattern, as opposed to a constant sound.  Sounds almost like a higher-pitched version of the sound a harddrive makes when accessing chunks of data, to the point where I thought to myself, does an SSD actually make noise, that can't be possible!?  (this is my first SSD machine) I listened to the back and noticed the sound as well, and it seems more constant back there as opposed to a beeping on and off. It is only noticable when the room is very quiet, but when you hear it, it is definitely there and gets hard to ignore.  The fan noise is fine for me, just a very low pitched quiet hum, but this sound is pretty annoying if you notice it.

Hi,
Starting about a week ago my computer speakers have been making a really high pitched buzzing.Its very loud and I can even hear it through music. I'm almost positive it is not the speakers because if i plug a pair of headphones directly into the computer, they too get this annoying dastardly buzzing. I'm also pretty sure, but not positive, that it is not the onboard sound card because I get the buzzing even if i use an extermal USB sound card. Another thing is that the buzzing seems to mimic whatever the harddrive is doing at the time.
I'm currently using an K7N2G motherboard.

Help would be greatly greatly greatly appreciated.

Question: High pitched sound

Hello,

If anybody can shed some insight, it would be most welcomed. I've encountered a few things in my computer life but this one well... please read.

My system first off...
P4 3.0GHz, 865PE, P5P800, 400W Power Supply, some mid size copper fan sitting on cpu, ATI x800 AIW, Bluetooth keyboard/mouse...
My cpu used to cook at high temperatures, that's prescott for you.

Went to the store, got a case fan, compressed air, and a new hd.

Cleaned it up, mounted fan and installed hd. Didn't really notice it at first, but then started to hear this high pitched sound. Rebooted, same thing..
Finally can't take it anymore, opened the case, and it seems to be eminating from near the cpu. It usually happens when it's taxed but the kicker is...
it always happens when i move the mouse. It sounds like crickets almost.

Anybody have any ideas? I cannot see it being the new hard drive, it is not in use yet. (original and new are SATA if it's relevant).

Thanks in advance,
Richard
 

Answer:High pitched sound

Thats an odd one, I would say it was the HSF (heat sink fan) for your CPU but since it happens when you move your mouse, it must be either the mouse or the CPU itself... Try using a different type of mouse (ie PS2 or USB). If this doesnt solve the problem, check to see if everything is plugged in properly (actually you should do that before mouse)... And if that doesnt work, see if you can swap your CPU over with another one to see if this is the problem.

Regards,

I've started to hear a high pitched noise from my PC today, I'm not sure what it is. I am thinking it might be the power supply, which I could try replacing with one from my old PC.

The computer is about 3/4 years old, the only parts new to it are a Hard Drive (about a month old) and a DVD/RW (about 2 weeks old). Nothing else is new and from what I've read, if it was the hard drive, it would be constant and the driver wouldn't last much longer.

The high pitch noise only lasts till I reach the windows log in screen, then it goes away.

This morning, when I first heard it, I thought a cable might be loose, so I opened the case and made sure they where all secure. Turned the computer back on and there was no high pitched sound, yet I turned the PC off to leave for somewhere, come back and heard the high pitch sound again when I turned the PC on.

So I'm not sure what it is, probably need a new PC anyway, haha.
 

Answer:High Pitched Noise from PC

Open the case, leave the side off, grab an empty roll from paper towels and turn on the computer. If you hear the sound, hold the tube to your ear and move it around the components so you can try and determie where the sound is coming from. It could be a fan bearing.

Question: High Pitched Noise

After taking my computer home from college and pluging it in, I noticed a high pitched noise. If I turn the computer on, the noise goes away, and, if I wait long enough after turning the computer off it fades away and stops. If i turn off the PSU or unplug the comp during the noise it goes away(but not immediately, it fades away over a few seconds). It seems like the longer i have the computer on, the longer the noise will persist after i turn it off... but i'm not 100% sure about that.

The only thing I can think of that might have caused it is the 250 mile drive home. It wasnt very bumps, but something might have been nocked loose... The computer is only a few months old and is running perfectly fine, besides this.

Now I want to state up front, I'm a bit weird about a noisy PC. That said, I recently setup a second PC and it is working terrific. The only thing that is driving me crazy is it seems to emit a high pitched sound. I had an old NEC PC years ago that did the same thing and I could not figure out what did it. I thought maybe I was crazy, but I asked someone else and they said they could hear it. It didn't bother them much, but it does me. What types of things can cause this? I disabled the fans in the PC and I still hear it. Is this a PSU issue? I unplugged my shielded PC speakers and moved them away and it still was there. I probably sound like a freak, but for whatever reason the sound seriously irritates me. Luckily I don't need that second PC on all the time........

Answer:High pitched sound?

I have no idea, but plug those fans back in! LOL. I have had some past computers that made various noises, I just shrugged it off. Maybe you should invest in a desk with a computer cubby that might be able to mask the noise.

Question: High pitched noise

Hello forum, first of all, I posted this at 'sound', not sure if it's the right place, please move the topic if it's not. Anyway, here is my problem: my Hp Pavillion g6 has been producing a high pitched noise from the moment I bought it (about a year ago), I throught I couldn't do anything about it and thus gave up at first, but recently I found this: http://asusnoise.blogspot.nl/ , It's a discription for ASUS laptops of how to solve problems with a high pitched noise coming from the laptop. I throught: 'the hell of it, even though it's for ASUS laptops, let's give it a spin'. And guess what? The moment I did the last step (disabling idle processor), the sound stopped. So it's all good in the end? not really.... With this solution the laptop's fan is going berserk, (probably because the processor is always running at max with 'idle processor' disabled) and switching one annoying sound for another ain't really a solving grace as you'll probably understand.  After this I went searching online for another solution (because from now on I had  the confidence that it CAN be solved after hearing it dissappear) and found only this: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00965412 . Sadly I don't have this option in my BIOS and I have a feeling it's similair to the idle processor solution anyway. Btw, when starting up the laptop and when accessing the BIOS the sound isn't there either, like you'd expect since it's apparantly a process. S...

My T61 makes a high-pitched whine when it is running on the battery.  It is annoying and makes me worried that there is something wrong with the computer.  I think it's always done this.  Any ideas? Thank you, Jessica

Answer:T61 high-pitched noise

This is a persistent issue on T60 and T61s. You can try updating all your drivers as well as the BIOS, also try changing the power manager to "power source optimized."  Some people suggest turning off power saving for the USB root hubs in device manager but that hasn't work for me either. I think the noise comes from power saving features of some components (switching from low to normal power mode and back).  If you do a search on google you will come up with many sites discussing this along with multiple solutions.  However they may not work for you (i can't really get mine to be completely quiet).  Let us know if you solve the mystery.

My dad was the last one to use the computer and now he's gone out so I don't know if this problem was there when he was on it, although he didn't say anything to me.

But now that I'm on it, I've noticed the sound output sounds different. When I loaded Windows, the traditional Windows login tune played...but it was all high. It's not the volume settings, it's actually a higher sound, and this is actually affecting every single piece of sound coming out of the speakers on the monitor.

I tried playing a song and the guy's voice is all messed up - high-pitched because of this.

I don't know why it's done this or how to solve it. If anyone can help I would be very happy! Thank you in advance!
 

Answer:Huh? My sound is all...different and high-pitched...

That's actually kind of hard to say what that might be. Believe it or not I've had my computer do the same thing, and after doing a spyware/viral scan, it straightened out. So it could be one of many things....just some insight.

Hi, I'm getting a ridiculously annoying high pitched buzzing coming from my speakers. The buzzing seems to mimic how hard the hard drive is working at the moment.

Sounds like the speakers may need to be shielded or you need a new set of speakers. Could be the EMF noise is originating from inside the PC as well if the sound card components are not shielded well enough.

Basically, I just bought a whole load of new computer parts to build into a PC for my brother (christmas gift). I've done it countless times, but this time I'm getting some bizzare problems. I'll list the specs first.

P4 3.0E

512 RAM

ASUS P4P800 SE motherboard

Thermaltake 400w Powersupply.

Radeon 9600 Pro.

120 Gig Seagate SATA HD.
Now, with the stock powersupply *Came in the case, not the Thermaltake* I plugged it into everything and the computer booted and ran fine EXCEPT the PSU had a burning smell that was not to my liking (300w). So I put in my 400w Thermaltake Powersupply and it makes this odd high pitched noise when it's on the on position at the back, but the computer itself not switched on. Yet, if I lay the computer on its side, it runs and the sound goes away... EXCEPT if I plug in the keyboard, it makes the sound again and the computer doesn't boot when the sound is on. I *KNOW* the power supply works. What could be the problem here? I'm seriously stumped =/ All the components seem to be functioning as they should, but there's no way a 400w Powersupply should be overloaded like that.

Thanks, in advance.

I've noticed other people have had issues with laptops having odd sounds. I had two problems with sound, first one I have solved. It was related to the SoundMAX power saving settings.

Second one is actually more annoying; it's a constant high-pitched chirping sound which is coming from the laptop. If I use AC power connection, the sound is a bit louder. When using just battery power it's slightly more silent. When I drag windows around in XP, the sound is sometimes cut out but comes back. BUT, when I scroll and PDF document, the sound is gone for good. But it returns when I release the mouse button. Has anyone tested this one?

And more importantly, is there a way to stop the sound altogether? If not, I guess I'll have to consider returning this model and picking up some other. Any information on similar problems with different Toshiba laptop models? I really like this model too, but the sound is making me crazy... :-)

regards M

Edited to add: AFTER more careful inspection, the louder sound indeed came from the AC adapter. It's the same kind of sound as the more subtle sound which is coming from the laptop itself.

Question: High pitched sound

On the load screens in lotro I'm getting a high-pitched sound coming from my computer. I'm also getting one when in the post game and public game que in dow2 as well as its load screens. Is this anything for concern or am I getting worried over nothing? It has been doing this for awhile. I don't know if it has been the whole time I had it or not. I just picked up on it after I got back from a LAN party with it. It could be that I was mentally looking for something to go wrong with it from the journey, and that is why I picked up on it, or maybe it did start after that. There were potholes in the round.

Anyway, the sound changes

http://screenshot.xfire.com/screensh...d449cade4e.png

For example, it will get more intense when i scroll my cursor over someone's name in the post game there. Then it will change again slightly when I click their name and the game brings up more options. You can see I have it over the name of the fourth player because the dialogue box game up.

I'm not hearing it all in cod, fc2, or crysis if I am remember correctly.

Is this something to worry about, or am I making a big deal over nothing? It has been going around for over a month unless it has been the entire time, I'm not sure anymore.

Joe

Answer:Audio Is Too High Pitched

Try rolling back the sound driver from within Device Manager, joebeaven. If this is not an option, uninstall the sound driver and reboot. If the driver is not automatically reinstalled after reboot: "Drivers can be installed from the c:\applications\drivers folder and utilities from the c:\applications\tools folder." This info was taken from here.If your issue started recently, there may have been some form of corruption that has occurred.

looking for any ideas or help

Answer:High Pitched whir from rig

Hi ghostops117 and welcome to W7 Forums

The source of the noise is likely to be coming from a fan or from a floppy/optical/HDD drive. Unplug your machine (always do this when connecting/disconnecting internal cables) and disconnect all drives and fans (except for the CPU fan). If you have a graphics card and have also got on-board graphics, temporarily remove the card and use on-board instead. With everything disconnected, power back up. Don't worry about missing OS system prompts. If the noise is no longer present, reconnect one component at a time and retest. If the noise returns, verify by disconnecting the last component connected and test again.

Please let us know your results.

I got a high pitched noise coming from my tower, and it's driving me insane!! I can't pinpoint it even with the casing off, though I think it's coming from the PSU.It starts whenever a program is started - be it a Word doc or a game, never when just on desktop with no progs running. It's not constant - it can be intermittent, very strangely (and maybe separately) I've noticed on FM2006 it makes a clicky noise as I scroll over lists of names. Does anyone have any ideas please?

Answer:high pitched noise....

Probably a PSU or fan sound. Can you get close enought to hear? You can put a screwdriver on each component, one at a time and put the larger end in your ear to hear better. (An old trick!)

Does anyone know what would cause my hard drive to make this high pitched shrill sounding, almost alarm-like, noise???? It does it occasionally and I cannot connect any certain action to it's happening. It definetly is coming from my hard drive, not the speakers. Sometimes it occurs and then overything kind of freezes up and I can't even shut it down, I have to just hit reset. I recently had a new hard drive installed with more space because my pc tech friend told me that was probably the reason, not enough room. But, now I have 30 GB with only 1 GB used, so that's not it. I also had a new fan put in but that wasn't it. Like just now--it started again--out of the blue--my cursor just hesitated and I knew it was coming and then it started. Any ideas? It's driving me crazy!! It's loud and makes you want to scream! Even my dog leaves the room! Help! Thanks! Angie

Hello everybody,

I have been having a huge problem this last month with my computer, which I hope someone will be able to help me with.

The problem:
A high pitch ?squeak? sound is coming from ?inside? my PC. It appears to be coming from my graphics card or somewhere above on the motherboard. I am not a hardware geek at all, so in all honestly I really do not know. I am almost sure it is NOT coming from my fans or my PSU, though it does sound like a voltage problem.

Here is a VIDEO I filmed of my PC making the annoying sound:


The facts:
The noises are random ? and not related to anything. They will appear when I?m doing nothing, and they will appear when I?m doing loads of stuff.
The noises last between ~1-7 seconds
The noises started occurring AFTER I installed my new SSD: http://ocz.com/consumer/vertex-3-sata-3-ssd - I had never heard them before. I cannot RMA it, unfortunately. After installing my new SSD, I formatted my PC and installed Windows and that drive. Note: I am almost 100 % sure that the sounds are not coming from the SSD or HDD.
NO sounds during startup or in BIOS
People can hear the sound through Skype, EVEN WHEN MY MIC IS MUTED (!!) I find this very odd, and I hope it might be something to help locate the problem.
Some days there are sounds all the time, but I have tried going 5+ hours without sounds.

What I have tried already:
I have tried unplugging my secondary HDD.
I have tried disabling EIST... Read more

Answer:High-pitched sound from PC

It maybe somewhat related to the noises mentioned in this thread.

Question: High Pitched Tone

Hi all!I just purchased a new HP computer with dedicated graphics and it's very fast.But one thing I noticed when I first plugged it in, was that it was making a high pitched yet quiet tone. I did a bit of searching on Google and found out that some power supplies do this when something has gone wrong and now I'm getting a little paranoid from it.However I also read that some power supplies do this even when nothing is wrong.Today when I went out I put the computer on Sleep. When I came back, it was making the same noise. But there's a little light on the front of the computer that flashes during Standby/Sleep (as a feature) and the tone or pitch changes as the light flashes on or off. If I turn the computer on, the noise seems to go away or is not noticable.Should I use the warranty? Or am I worrying too much for something normal?Thanks,~Dairyman

Answer:High Pitched Tone

Depends how high pitched it is?...many small fans make that noise, even big case fans do.

I just got my X1C Refurb in the mail.  The laptop fan makes a high-pitched whine, 99% of the time.  I have not even tried to do any serious work on it, but when I am on Chrome with two tabs open the fan operates continuously.  I already have a headache from the whine.  Compared to a 2 year old ASUS running serious data, this one is soo noisy!   I updated BIOS which did nothing.  I called technical support and they are shipping me a box to send it in.  But, now I am worried it will not go away and I just got myself a lemon :-(  

Answer:X1C high pitched noise

You may have a lemon. I have yet to hear the fan in mine come on. Send it back.

HELP!! In some programs my computer slows right down, makes a high pitched continual noise and the light flashes on the front of the computer casing. Any ideas?

Answer:High pitched noise

Sounds like an over-heating warning - do you get any error message or does the PC shut-down when this happens?

I don't know if it's because of the weather or something else, but since yesterday afternoon something in my PC has been making a high-pitched noise.My guess is that it is either the hard drive or the fan, either way it is something that speeds up and slows down, because when the PC is turned off or sent into standby, the pitch decreases/increases when it is switched off/on respectively.I can hear the fan alright so it maybe the hard drive. I think there is only 1 fan in the system. All I know is that when it goes into standby, 'it' is the last thing to stop squeeling, and 'it' is the first thing that starts when you wake it up.Any ideas what it culd be and how to stop it? Thanks :)

Answer:High-pitched noises!

sounds like power supply fan.sometimes you can peel back the label to expose a small hole on fans 1 drop of light oil is all that is required.

For the past couple days, my computer (out of the blue) will start making a really high-pitched ringing sound and seems to slow right down (eg. - if connected to the web, it acts like it's connected at 28,000 bps. There's a little green light on the front of the computer box that starts flashing (the icon above the light looks like little sun?). It's driving me crazy...any ideas on why it's doing this, or how to correct it?

My computer is a Pentium-S 166 mhz (yeah, I know, LOL!!), and I'm running on Windows 98SE, with 128 mb RAM. I was thinking of installing a new CPU to upgrade it, but now I'm wondering if it's even worth my time. I have a sinking feeling this poor old baby's had it. The computer was hit by power surges thru the phone lines a couple years ago, and I had to replace the modem, motherboard and sound card as a result.
 

Answer:High-pitched ringing sound

Check to be sure the fan over the cpu is spinning......does the case appear to be warmer than usual?

Hello, first time poster here  For me the constant fan noise isn't much of an issue; however, the intermittent high pitch tone is killing me. When I'm trying to study or read in a silent room, this annoying tone keeps permeating my skull and makes it very hard to focus. Oh did I mention how annoying it is?? I absolutely adore this product in every other way, but if this annoying tone doesn't get fixed one way or another, I will have to say good bye yoga and hello Dell XPS 12. Does anyone else suffer from this issue? MB

Every once in a while, my pc speakers make a high pitched ringing sound, and then the system freezes up and becomes unresponsive. I'm not sure if it's related, but I just recently reformatted my whole system. It didn't crash like this prior to the reformatting. I was thinking it might be a heat problem or maybe my drivers, but I don't know, so I hope someone else does. Thanks for your time.

My operating system is Win/95b. I get a high pitched squealing staticy sound over everything but CD player. I have an OPTi plug n play audio device. I checked system and it says devices are working properly. It seems the problem didn't start until I installed Win optimizer. So I uninstalled it and re-booted but I still have the same problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi

Do you have any other electrical equipment, wireless router etc near your speakers? If so, try turning them off one at a time and see if there is an improvement.

Just recently updated all the drivers with the systems update, after reboot a high pitched buzzing started.  The pitch of the buzzing changes when I adjust the brigthness level on the monitor too. Rolled back the driver for the graphics card and still had the buzzing sound, I am assuming its from the power managment driver update.  Anyone have the same problem? Anyone know a link to the default power manager driver?

My PC (Win XP, HP Pavillon Desktop a1340n) has been repaired several times, and the last time I got it back, I plugged the speakers to the sound card (not onboard sound) and there's a high-pitched noise coming from the speakers. It's not a mic problem I don't believe, since the line-in is muted. I left the speakers unplugged for a while and when I went to plug them in the noise wasn't there, but it's recently returned.

What should I do to remedy this?

I have a lenovo Y710. Over the past week every time I turn the volume over 60% and close the lid it makes a very high pitched noise from the speakers. It also makes the noise when I touch a certain point on the bottom front edge. It is very loud. It has become a big problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I have already tried uninstalling the audio driver and installing the latest one from lenovo site. I have also tried disabling the built in mic. The last thing I tried was to shut down, unplug, and removed the battery. Nothing has made it stop.

Hello, this issue has been affecting me for the past few months. Every time that I think I fix it, it will eventually come back.

What it is exactly is; I can be doing anything, playing a game, watching a movie, listening to music, or browsing the web. Then all of a suddenly, the sound will mess up, and go from a high pitch to low pitch, then back to high.

It's not OS related, it happened to me while using windows xp pro 32bit, then xp pro 64bit. Now it started happening again the other day, and I'm currently using Windows 7 32bit - Build 7100.

PC Specs:

CPU: Intel® Core™2 Quad CPU Q6700 @ 2.66GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.7GHz
Motherboard: Asus P5N-D
Ram: 4GB
Video Card: Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT
Sound: Using Creative Fatal1ty USB Headset

When I was using XP, I could fix it by closing out all running programs, but it would eventually come back.

I've been using windows 7 for the past few weeks. It only started happening a few days ago, after I installed some Logitech G15 keyboard drivers/software. After it happened, I removed what I installed, but yet it just happened to me again a few moments ago. Was watching TV, came back to the PC, put on headphones and hit play on winamp. Next thing I knew I was listening to Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Answer:High + Low pitched sound from headset

Figured out a fix to make it stop, but still trying to find out the source of it.

Fix was to go into "Speakers Properties / Advance", and change the default format of 16 bit, 44100 Hz (CD Quality) to another, then change it back.
