Noise when tapping touchpad

Just received a Y580 with a Synaptic's touchpad.  Makes a rattle/clicking sound when tapping or preparing to scroll.  Is this normal?

Hi Bunt,

 

please right click Speakers symbol located next to time/date display -> select sounds...

check what kind of event sounds are selected, especially look at Start Navigation sound.

Re: Noise when tapping touchpad

Thanks for the reply.  The sound is mechanical from the device itself and not related to the speakers at all.  Seems there is a space between the electronics beneath the surface.  When tapping the surface there is a resonating or clicking sound produced.  Hard to describe but unlike any other touchpad I use.  Can this be normal with Synaptic?

Thanks Zehn.  I was advised to return the laptop to Newegg for replacement.  Lenovo tech says there should be no touchpad noise.

Re: Noise when tapping touchpad

Have bought 2 Ideapad Z380's and they both have had this same irritating poorly designed clicky clacky noisy loose touchpad which is highly annoying to use. Am going to try to have it replaced. Shame as the rest of the machine is very good.
