Re: T510 + i5 540M = terrible whine noise!

2012-04-03, 21:52 PM

So after complaining to them (emails) that they failed to get rid of the noise they ended up setting up an on service repair.  

Guy came and was supposed to replace my perfectly functioning fan, told him that would be a waste.  He ended up letting me keep the fan for future use.  He also told me they wont replace my laptop.

I noticed that after getting my motherboard, hard drive, cd-drive replaced the noise has been reduced.  However I can still hear it, I guess it all depends on how well you hear but I certainly notice it still, it's annoying especially with someone like me that is obsessed with having everything perfect.  More importantly with the money we paid for these machines they shouldn’t have these problems.  

Anyways, I noticed that when I power on my Microsoft Bluetooth mouse 5000 and start to move it around and use it the noise dramatically increases.  Also my power brink now is making this noise.  It varies randomly, sometimes it's loud sometimes there's no noise at all.  Keep in mind that I have a U.S. T510 with the AC adapter and plug.  

Is this a CPU problem because if it is why haven't they replaced our CPUs?  Is it because these models are made around the CPU we currently and that would mean if we did replace the CPU with the second gen. Intel chips that it would cause even more problems?

Me?  Nope, nada.  Now the noise is loud as can be but it's coming from my power brick (AC Adapter).  I still have it near the RAM but it's not as loud as the brick, nevertheless I can still hear it and it bothers the heck out of me smh.

You're hearing acoustic vibrations from the capatictors in the power brick. It is perfectly normal and nothing to be alarmed about.

Yeah but it's annoying to hear if you're in a quiet room you'd bother people around you...Also that noise is basically the same as the noise in the laptop it's just way louder.  I originally thought that since it has a U.S. AC adapter and plug and that I’m currently in Europe that it’s making that particular noise because it’s converting the voltage...

The same brick is used world wide, the only difference is the power cable going into the wall. And it always converts the input power from AC to DC.

Mark, you say there are parts available that will help with this high-pitch noise (My T510 has this issue, still under warrantee, I have really good ears at the high end range and this does drive me nuts when on battery) ... Can you expand on that as to what parts are being replaced to fix this?   Is it the CPU?   I don't think I have any issue with the Fan here.
