X201 Noise

2011-03-02, 16:04 PM

Hi All,


I'm having a noise problem with my new X201. I've checked the forum and tried to adjust the mic volume but the problem still exists, and actually the noise I'm talking about is different from the loud, high-pitched noise. This is more a soft but persistent high-pitched "eek" sound and it could be a fan problem?


Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Is it like a beeping at a regular intereval? like a beep every second? coming from somewhere beneath the keyvorad near to the palm rest?


Cause I have the same problem and I have yet to figure out what the hell it is. The best I can figure for mine is that it has something to do with the Ultrabase. my beeping started when i "improperly" ejected the laptop from the ultrabase without  pressing the small button next to the ejection lever first. as soon as I did that, the beepeing started, and now it comes back every time I put the laptop back on the base, and take it off, even if I follow the ejection propcedure fully.


I would also like to know what this is.
