Lenovo Legion Y530 weird noise problem

2018-12-02, 16:36 PM

Hi,I have bought legion Y530 two days ago with i5 8300h ,gtx 1050ti  ,16GB ram ,1TB HDD and 240GB SSD.After turning on,laptop makes  weird noise all time,it sound like scratching.It comes from the place under right top corner of the keyboard.I completely don't know what it could be and i didn't find the answer on any forum thats why i am posting it here.

I will leave the mp4 sound of the noise below.

Sounds like a normal mechanical hard disk spinning when loading or searching for files. You might want to download some freeware to test if there is any bad sector if this persist conssitanly.

Unfortunately, I'm getting the same noise on a brand new y530, so I am afraid it is a normal sound, probably.

That's the sound of a mechanical harddisk, nothing to worry about. You can test its health with some testing apps, just in case, but nothing out of the ordinary.

I've heard the sound and it seems to be louder than usual. If infact it is loud, I'd say that you should contact Customer Care by clicking on the Support link on top of this page.

 

If you'd like to troubleshoot yourself, you can run a HDD diagnostic test and see what results you get.

 

I've used several machines over the years and the mechanical drives , though noisy while being accessed, do not make screeching sound.

My y530 does the same sound, i think because it is a 7200rpm hdd instead of a 5400rpm

I have exactly the same problem. I've just bought mine Y530 a few days ago. I didn't notice it imediately but now I can't unheard it. Specially if I'm not listing to music, or if the fans are silent.

 

I've two more laptops at home, and I compared the sounds, and the Lenovo is really different and noisier.

 

So this is normal? With the HDD?
