X1 Carbon 2016 creaking sound when opening lid


my new x1 carbon, 2016 version, has a noticeable creaking sound when opening the lid (to me it seems the sound comes from the left side of the laptop base). the laptop is new, it has 2 weeks of life, and has been making the sound from the very first day. 


I fear it will break with time, any ideas or suggestions?

Re: X1 Carbon 2016 Noisy touchpad

Check that the screws are tight on the left. Might be a defective item, since it's just 2 weeks, the retailer should be able to exchange it. If you bought it from Lenovo directly, they have a RMA exchange program.
