I don’t know if this is unique to me or not, but I was wondering if anyone here has heard mechanical sounds coming from their DIY edition. I’ve noticed it ever since I got it a few weeks ago, but it’s bugging me enough to want to ask around.
I’m hearing what sounds like an intermittent grind/click when using the laptop that I assume is coming from the fan. It’s not harsh and it doesn’t sound like anything’s broken, but it’ll be virtually silent and then after about 20 seconds you’ll hear a kind of quick grinding/clicking sound.
Additionally, if I close the lid to put the laptop into sleep mode, I can put my ear up to the bottom of the machine and hear what I can only describe as processing/electrical noises. Again, it’s not a harsh sound, but it was noticeable enough that I heard it when it was closed, on my lap, with the TV on. I kept the lid closed for some time to see if it would dissipate, but no luck.
It’s been a while since I’ve owned my own laptop so maybe I’m looking a little too into it, but I have used a few work laptops over the past 2 years and I at least remember never hearing a whirring/clicking noise while using one.
If anyone else experiences this I’d love to know and if there’s a potential fix for it that would be great as well.
