Re: T440s speaker noise

I'm having the same issue on a brand new t440s, and the hiss stops when muting the sound. Happens both on speakers and headset.

This issue is really annoying when listening to music with quitet periods in it.

Re: T440s speaker noise

I have the same problem, and I tried everything, and no service tech even saw a problem since they couldnt hear the noise since it was so low.

Finally we had the motherboard, and speakers replaced and that seemed to fix the problem... So unfortunately it seems to be a hardware problem.

Re: T440s speaker noise

My sound started out intermittment and is now persistent, especially when plugged in. So there is no dedicated solution to this problem? And it is DEFINITELY hardware? But what if I send it into hardware and they have to just replace it again, because they don't have a dedicated solution?

Re: T440s speaker noise

I have the same question with my brand new laptop W541. I got it yesterday. However, I have the same issue with it.

Re: T440s speaker noise

I would like to add that the new W550s has the exact same problem. Quite ridiculous that they would include these speakers with a brand new line of laptops.

Re: T440s speaker noise

What can I replace them with? Any alternativ that would fit in the
dimensions that I could get off Ebay? I replaced them after Lenovo send me
a replacement (since I read that it was hardware related), nope same
problem. It stops me from going to sleep. ANNOYING.

Re: T440s speaker noise

hi all,

 

i just recevied a brand new T550 (16 GB Ram, I7, LTE, SCR, FPR, 1 TB SSD Sandisk Extreme, 3k non Touch, Precisioon Keyboard, Windows 8.1 recently installed all new drivers from lenovo site) - i upgraded the disk on arrival of the notebook.

 

and.... i also have this issue. I had the notebook run on Win 7.1 64.bit over the weekend (it had the issue there as well) then upgraded to win 8.1 today, still same issue. Currently i only have windows standard drivers installed, the current realtek drivers are just downloading. Will post a reply when installed.

 

The noise is pretty much annoying as the notebook is very quiet...

 

 

Cheers,

Phil

Re: T440s speaker noise

Update: Installed drivers from lenovo (Version 6.0.1.7383) page did not fix the issue! The noise starts and lasts around 4 seconds after the initial audio being played (like windows system sounds)
