High pitch noise coming from laptop

Hi,
I have a laptop computer and it makes a high pitch noise constantly. It drives me crazy and I can only stay on the computer for short periods of time. It is not loud, but auditable.

Likely it is the system cooling fan or processor cooling fan so check to see if you would like to put it back under a manufacturer warranty if possible or whether you have the skill to review, follow, and carefully open up and inspect and clean and reassemble your notebook PC. What price is it worth to you to fix this problem - the downtown computer retailer that sells CDs and PCs and appliances will charge you to fix it. Again, most likely it is a simple small fan inside the PC. It could just have lint, dust, fuzz in it and after a clean out could work quietly again. The CPU cooling fins or cooling fan blades after cleaning will allow the CPU or system to operate more coolly, and then the fan RPM could drop a bit and the notebook PC whining sound may decrease. Oh, finally, putting the notebook PC on a grate or grill or a notebook cooling ventilation platform could alleviate the problem if it is just lint or dust.

My Dell inspiron 13r laptop is emitting a very high pitched noise when it is on. I have tried reinstalling my audio drives but nothing seems to be working... Please help


If it is a relatively quiet, high pitched noise, it may not even be from your speakers. I've experienced a high pitched noise whenever i plug in my AC adapter to my PSP, so there is a chance it might be power related.

Hi i have hust turned my laptop on and it is making a biig noise and it is not stopping it comes on when u turn it on what should i do


Are you getting a high pitch screaming or a grinding noise? The Fan on the heatsink sometimes getting clogged with dust and over time this can cause the computer to turn itself off. Dependant on a high pitch scream this could be a number of problems, memory modules loose or faulty?? Would need more info about the type of sound..

Hi grade laptop makes high pitched noise and the screen is blank


High pitch noise usually means the inverter board that drives the lamp behind the LCD display. If the rest of the laptop appears to work, for example, hard drive light blinking while booting, try hooking up an external monitor and hit whatever function key that switches you to the external monitor. If everything works, you may want to replace the inverter board yourself. It is not horribly hard if you are very careful. But it is not exactly a walk in the park kind of work.

If the rest of the laptop does not appear to work, the DC-DC step down power circuit is probably shot, which will also make a high pitch noise. In this case, you will have to replace the motherboard. Replacing a motherboard is a major pain in the behind. In most case, it is not worth the trouble if you have an older model.

Pitched noise coming from the fan


When I first got my PS3, It had the annoying high pitched fan sound as well, but went away after a week and has worked fine ever since, no problems at all. I have the 60 gig version, so. Maybe if yours is new you just need to break it in?
