L560 Extremely loud noise during start and usage.

2017-11-25, 20:27 PM

Hello everyone,


I have had a Thinkpad L560 for a few months. (Upgrades to Windows 10) Yesterday suddenly it crashed and since then everytime I start it there is this extremly loud noise. Like an alarm, I didnt even think it would be possible for a notebook to make a sound that loud.  

Sometime the start fails, sometimes it works. If it works and I use the notebook there is a similiar sound but much less loud.

However I found out, that when I use the notebook to hear music or do something which would create sound, this weird noise stops for the time. (The music works totally fine. But even if mute it, just playing it mute also stops this weird noise.  

I have absolutely no idea what this could be.  

Thank you very much for your help.

Note: I need this notebook now, to write university work, so I cant exchange it or have it repaired by an expert.
