Just opened the box. Yoga 730(15') makes a crackling noise, not speaker

2019-02-20, 0:50 AM

I literally just opened the box and when I booted it up and completed the start up tasks I noticed it start making a crackling noise coming from the left, under side of the housing. It's not speaker related, as mentioned from other Yoga series posts. I'm planning on using this laptop for business and need to get this issue worked out soon or I'll be returning it for a replacement.

Don't have an answer, but I have the same issue (I think)   Just got a Yoga 730 (15") and didn't hear it for a week and now it is there off and on.  left side and it is louder when I turn it over (sounds like it is coming from around the fan grill and maybe under the Tab key.  I would have thought HD clicking, but it has SDD so not sure.  Could be a busted fan.  I am in same boat and will need to figure it out or return it.

 

Anyone else have this issue?  What is it and how can it be corrected?

Updated the BIOS and the sounds seems to have stopped. I do agree that it seems to have been a fan issue. I'll put it through the ringer over the next few days to see if it happens again, but as of now that seems to have worked.

Cool.  My Yoga 730/15" is about 10 days out of the box and I updated the BIOS right away and it showed up a couple of days ago.  If it comes back, I'll grab some video and post here   Good luck and if it comes back, please keep this thread up.
