IdeaPad S540-15IWL GTX high-pitched noise

2020-01-06, 18:27 PM

Hi,

 

I purchased a Lenovo IdeaPad S540-15IWL GTX a couple of days ago and it seems like the fan produces a very anoying high-pitched noise, even under relatively light workloads. Is this fixable? According to Google I'm not the only person facing this issue. I've been greatly enjoying this machine so far, however the high-pitched noise is a deal breaker for me. I'm therefore thinking of returning the product if this issue cannot be solved.  I've got the latest drivers installed.

 

Any help would be great, thanks.

Are you sure the noise is coming from the fan? This sounds like GPU coil whine.

There's indeed a good chance that you're correct. I didn't even know this issue existed among GPU's. All I noticed is that when the fan speed increased the hissing/squealing noise became louder as well. Apparently it's next to impossble to fix. It is really unfortunate because the device is great in every other way.
