As a temporary 'solution', start up your iPod and put the earplugs in:smileywink:.
The only hiss you'll then hear will be from your MP3 player.

Need quick answer-T61p does it make whine noise?

2008-03-10, 3:00 AM
I have heard about alot of duo core processors making a whine noise. I definately noticed it in my friends XPS M1330, so this question is for any T61p owners. Have you noticed this problem, you may be able to hear it if you put your ear to the side of the laptop. I have sensative hearing but its not normal fan noise. I need to know today cause today is the last day for a coupon that I have.

Thanks
 
MODERATOR EDIT:  Added the "p" to your subject line, so that your responses will be from T61p users, not just T61 users...as I almost commented on it.  -tff

Hi,  don't know other people', mine T61p is very quite. I can only hear a bit sound from the fan in a  quite room, but didn't hear any noise from CPU.

So i'm guessing this will be present even if I get the t9300. Dam, I was getting such a good deal but I guess its not worth it to wait a month to get the laptop with that annoying sound. From my previous expierence, it was present in most C2D Toshibas and very loud in the Dell M1330. There was no noise in 3 amd's that I tried or the macbook.

AMD cpu's are somewhat different in design than Intel C2D... while Mac also has it... but i think the designer had a special work around that reduced the perceived noise.... its probably got to do with the case of Macbook/pro series.... these noise are usually in the 20 Khz region, so many people whom are older or work in high noise environment do not hear it.....

Re: t61p corde 2 duo t7500 hiss and whine... no solution ?

It's not true that this problem is common on most C2D-based laptop. It's actually a common problem for Dell, Apple, Lenovo's C2D laptop. I also owned 3 Sony C2D SZ laptops, 2 Fujitsu T4215 C2D laptops, they do not have this issue. I haven't seen any HP C2D-based laptop owners had complained this problem yet, however, I was once encountered by this issue on a HP laptop powered by a Core Duo (not C2D) processor, but HP still managed to have it fixed. I don't see why Lenovo couldn't fix this issue permenantly. Unable to get this issue fix is a matter of quality of service, not quality of product.

You haven't done a Google search on "HP laptop core 2 duo whine"" then!
