Lenovo Legion Y540-(17IRH-PG0) - small noise when playing a game

2021-01-21, 19:20 PM

Hi!

 

I have a problem. I don't mind the noise as much as I worry. :v/

Lately, I've noticed that when I open a game that requires resources from the video card, the laptop makes a sound similar to a short circuit only as very thin and slow (on the right side).

 

I don't know what to do...

if you have a suggestion, you can tell me below.

 

Thanks!

Hello @Victor Sz,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Kindly attach an example of the noise so we can help out with determining what may be the issue.

 

I would personally suggest to monitor the resources of the machine while the  machine is giving your these sounds (Using resource monitoring software or Task Manager)

 

We'll wait for you to post the noise so other members can also chip in if they have had the same issue.



Regards,

Hi!

 

Sure

I have now attached an audio recording.

 

(-Around 00:14-00:15 seconds the game starter running [ I turned the audio off form the beginning]

 -At 00:44-00:45 seconds the fans started..)

Hello @Victor Sz,

 

Thanks for reuploading the file.

 

I've checked it and it sounds like the fans are running faster when you start a game.

 

I would suggest trying to update the BIOS of the machine which can be found here if you haven't tried this already.

Hi!

 

I installed the bios update from the link you gave me.

after it was installed it told me that the ROM is the same with BIOS.

 

The problem is the sound you hear in the recording starting at 00:15 (when he started booting the game). it is a sound like a small short circuit or like something squeaky but very light.

The FANS started at 00:44, after 30 seconds at the beginning of the game.

However, I notice that a similar but barely audible (very very very little), sound is heard during regular use (both when running the system and while using any application)

My Y540 also makes this sound sometimes. Also curious as to what this is and if it's a problem or not.
