Lenovo Y580 fan - whiny grinding noise

Hello, I just bought a Lenovo Y580 with 3 yrs accidental protection. There is a horrible whiny high pitch noise on the upper right corner. Occassionally, there is also a grinding noise. Is anyone else having this problem?

 

Also I register the laptop on lenovo and my warrantly status is only saying 1 yrs instead of the 3 yrs that I bought.

You cpu cooling fan is at the top left, not the top right according to the service manual, do you have a second fan for a dedicated gpu or the dvd-rom is on the right side of the notebook?

Hi and welcome
Just to confirm somethings. Doest this noise comes at the following times?
1. While booting
2. While in safe mode
3. When in bios menu
4. Without nvidia gpu drivers
Please confirm to me the following things so i can detect if its problem with the fan. And also, if possible post a sound clip of the noise.

Re: Lenovo Y580 fan - whiny grinding noise

I purchased 3 Ideapad S405s for my kids for Xmas and I am having a similar problem.  On 2 of the computers, the grinding sound is very faint, but on the 3rd it is rather constant and annoying.  I am wondering if a new one from the store will have similar problems...
