Detailed description:Just opened the new laptop and while starting what I discovered is the stupid Coil Whine with this laptop. When none of the fans are running I can hear the audible coil whine and when the fans starts Whine Stops and it's normal.

I bought this laptop for work and don't want that head banging Coil Whine Noise - So what are my options?

I am sensitive to coil whine and this is heartbreaking.

Any good help?



  • Hi there,

    What's you BIOS version?

    Please update BIOS and all drivers to latest version.

    Thank you.

  • Hey.. All my BIOS is up-to-date.. yet the problem still lies.. only way the whine goes away is to turn on the fans even they are running in lower RPM.. was looking to a way to use a custom curve with 5% fan speed and not zero

  • Hi there,

    When running the unit, there may some coil whine from the component.

    If the whine is still disturbing you, I suggest you go to service center to do further inspection.

    Thank you.
