Y460 CPU Whine

2010-07-23, 4:20 AM

I received my Y460 last week and have noticed that it emits a faint, high pitched whine when the CPU is idle.  After a bit of research, it seems like this is a common problem for laptops with the i-series processors.  

 

Is this a problem that Lenovo is aware of?  Is there a reasonable chance of it getting fixed if I RMA?

Update:  None of the "fixes" posted online alleviate this problem.  The whine is very apparent when the CPU is idling and goes away immediately when it is under load.

 

I will be calling Lenovo on Monday to RMA.

Update 2:  I spoke to a Lenovo CSR who was very courteous and helpful.  She agreed to send me a new laptop, pretty much with no questions asked.  The order for the new one was submitted today, so I will update when I receive my new (hopefully whine-free) Y460.
