    I have Aero 17 w/ 9750H and it makes all these odd squeaky noises -- kind of like a disk drive spinning sound. It happens particularly when plugged in, but sometimes when it is not.

    I have seen reports of this from other Gigabytes. Has anyone found a solution?

    Thanks!

    sometime it's due to fan start spinning.

    I think it is the coil whine?

    Mine is AERO 15 OLED and this is the noisiest laptop I that ever owned!! Coil whine from mobo + high pitched cooling fans. I just wondering if the engineers didn’t notice anything during the product development? Or maybe they just don’t care? Hmm..

    I really hope Gigabyte will improve this “noise control” quality in their future laptops.

    Mine is not fan noise. Fan is not running. It is a chirping sound which seems to only be heard when laptop is plugged in.Whether it is charged or not does not matter.

    I have been in touch with Gigabyte support on this, and today they gave me instructions to RMA.

    Don't expect the sound to go away. Of the 5 units I have worked with personally, every one of them has this coil whine.

    Yeah, that's kind of what I expect. One of the keys is a little off too, so I am thinking maybe that will be fixed if I am lucky.

    Given how much this has been discussed, I was surprised how easily he suggested RMA.

    Has anyone ever tried a smaller charger to address this? Reason I think if it is that my Dell XPS 15 has a bigger battery, yet a charger half the size.

    I wonder if slower charging might avoid triggering it.

    I continue to have an ongoing conversation with Gigabyte support on this issue.

    Coil whine or the fan is clicking at the bottom. I know there was another user here who had some clicking noise and it turned out to be the fan. Worth checking. The coil whine is annoying though

    Mine is definitely CPU related. If I move the volume slider over toward high performance, it gets worse. Toward battery save, it gets better. Rarely will I hear it on battery. Most of the time when plugged in, regardless of charging state.

    Only thing I have seen that makes it stop is turning the max utilization for CPU from 100% to 99%. This makes me think some of the C1E state theories might be correct.

    It seems to have become a prevalent issue starting with six core 8750 last year, and on lots of brands.

    I found something with potential to fix this: Using throttlestop to disable Turbo. Usually I have my laptop plugged in to charge while I am using desktop. Disabling turbo kills the annoying noise while laptop is charging and idling slowly. There is also a registry edit which will add this setting to power plans. I think this might be a better plan in the long run; have two plugged in power plans, one for high performance and one for idle/charging.

    It's a shame to have to fuss with stuff like this. :huh:
