X230 - Static noise on integrated speakers (Windows 8 64 bit)

2012-12-01, 14:58 PM

Hello everybody,


can someone help me with the following problem:


I have a X230 (2320CTO) with Windows 8 running on it. I changed BIOS to UEFI only (no CSM) and reinstalled Windows. 

Since that change (I think!) I have static noise on the integrated speakers during boot. When I log on Windows it stops  but reappears short before playing a sound till short time after it ends. This happens with any application that plays sounds.


When I use headphones/external speakers, the sound plays just on the headphones/externals but the noise is still on the integrated speakers! When I mute the sound via hotkey everything is silent! 


Seems very strange to me, I hope someone has an idea...


I tried the windows built in drivers, the drivers from realtek.com and the lenovodrivers (, the problem stays the same.


Thanks everybody!
