Clicking noise inside a Gigabyte Aero 15x v8 laptop when plugged in
Noticeable clicking and buzzing sound from inside of the laptop. When unplugged noise stops. It is not fans, nor disk, I have an SSD.
As far as I can tell it does not affect performance, but when it is quiet — sound drives me crazy. Is there something I can do about it?
I found what makes noises:
Looks like some power module and the coils (transformers?) makes the noise.
Another thing I noticed that sometimes clicking gets louder when the picture on the screen changes. But it is not consistent.
Just found out that after unplugging or plugging the power adapter all is quiet but in a few minutes noises come back. It doesn't matter whether system runs on battery or adapter.
