XPS 13 Kaby Lake: coil whine

Q: XPS 13 Kaby Lake: coil whine

Hi everybody,
Last week I had to return the brand new 9350 QHD+ because of the coil whine noise. It was a real pity because I was in love with the rest, but it was simply too loud.
Now I am thinking again what to buy.
Is the design of the new XPS 13 Kaby Lake (9360) solving the coil whine problem?
If yes, I would prefer to wait and buy the new version.
I hope that someone from Dell can give me an asnwer here. Thank you very much in advance!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

This system is so new few if any users will have one in their hands.
Other thing to consider if it's an issue -- Kaby Lake will not run anything earlier than Windows 10, period - no work arounds, etc. It's Windows 10 or nothing (Windows-wise) -- if that's an issue.

I recently purchased the XPS 13 9360 (Kaby Lake) and have been using for a couple days.
I've noticed coil whine in the form of static sounds coming from the left side of the laptop, near the power connector.
There is very minimal noise when the laptop is on battery, where the noise is audible when your ear is next to the keyboard.
However, when connected to the power outlet the static becomes quite audible at a normal viewing distance. The static occurs frequently (especially when scrolling).
I tend to work in quite spaces with little ambient room noise, as I am easily distracted.
Is there a solution to resolving this coil whine issue? I feel like at this price point this should not be an issue (especially since is was well known in the earlier models).

Hey everyone,
recently there has been coming some strange noise from my computer. I haven't been able to pinpoint it exactly, but I think it might be coil whine from my PSU. I managed to take a recording of it uploaded it here:
http://picosong.com/nH4Y
(you will need to raise the volume quite a bit, the sound starts at about 10 seconds in) As you can hear, it's not constantly there. It lasts for 6-7 seconds and then its fine for about 25 seconds. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Is this PSU coil whine or something else?

I don't think it is a PSU coil whine, otherwise it would be constant. I think I remember someone stating, coil whines are audible even after PC shut down. Audible after PC shut down because the coil still has power, which is what causes the whine.

Sounded more of a cooling fan squall, but with less volume. It could be a mechanical drive squalling. Drive casings will dampen a squall, so it's not as loud.

Hello, So my desktop computer is from 2009 its now 4 years old, lately i started investigating why this super high pitched noise keeps whining in my ear, so i opened my computer and started listening on some of the parts, i found out that it was the psu, The coil whine only comes up when the computer is in windows and while gaming, But when its starting up or shutting doen its quiet, I think this is becouse im almost overloading it or something but i really shouldnt, its using an 90W amd cpu and a engt 430 gpu, it draw's like 150-200 watts at its max and i bearly pushes it that much, even with gpu and cpu at max the computer is running fine,
the psu is 300W so im almost maxing it but still, it should not whine like this. Can i fix the whine in some way? i heard you could put nail polish on the capasitors to stop the vibrations and the whine came from vibrations or something...

If you desktop power supply is making noise and its not the fan Replace it. Do not try to fix it. A power supply can hold voltages for a long time that can kill you.

Welcome to the windows 7 forums UdAkDev

Looking on google for coil whine shows a lot of hits and suggestions. One being that your PSU is not as powerful as it should be and another about some option in your graphics driver that you have to enable.

I was hoping this wouldn't be an issue with the newer generation models, as it was my understanding this was fixed towards the end of the previous generation. Unfortunately, I have audible coil whine on my new XPS 15 9550 when plugged in to the power adapter. When disconnected from the adapter, the whine is much less noticeable. It is most noticeable for me when scrolling in Chrome, as an example. KB backlight makes no difference. It does get slightly better when the battery is fully charged, but is still quite audible to me.
Is anybody else experiencing this with the Skylake models? I am extremely disappointed at this point, I like everything else about this laptop other than the coil whine and the webcam being at the bottom of the display (which I can live with, unlike the coil whine).

Hi,
I've received my new XPS 13 on 15h January, and there's a major Coil Whine problem with it, there's a high pitch noise coming out under the top left area of the keyboard, the sound is just like a dead HDD running.
It's most noticeable when the the notebook is charging, but still you can hear that high pitch sound in bedroom no matter if you have plugged in the power cord.
Does anyone has encountered this issue? With their new XPS 13? Very annoying sound and now I need to wear a headphone to play music in order to filter out that sound.

Greetings, I have recently brought an Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-53VG from Amazon. I have noticed a fairly high pitch coil whine from the upper part of the trackpad. The whine is especialy noticble when the charger is unpluged or when the trackpad is touched. The coil whine is loudest the laptop is unpluged AND touchpad is touched. I believe that I have the Synaptics touchpad but cannot comfirm, as device manager lists the touch pad as HID-compliant mouse. As for Windows, I have fresh install windows 10 and applied the anniversary update.

Hi Just received my new lenovo Thinkpad T550 with a Samsung 512 GB SSD and in a silent environment it makes a strange noise (fans are off - so this is not the problem): https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/46679366/Lenovo%20sound.m4a This becomes quite annoying when you work e.g. at night. After doing some research in this forum I found that this is the "coil whine bug".  I just tried this registry change mentioned in a different post and it seems to work (however power consumption will go up) after rebooting the machine: reg add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Processor /v Capabilities /t REG_DWORD /d 0x0007e066 Undo:reg delete HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Processor /v Capabilities /f However this cannot be the solution.

I've got an annoying high pitched sound that comes from my graphics card (I think) whenever I play a game with mid-high graphics requirements. Now, I've read a bit about the subject, and have come to understand that the noise is caused by vibrations. Also, based on what I've read, it is unfixable.

My question is this. If coil whine is NOT heat related, when why does opening the side of my pc up and putting a fan on it stop the noise? Understand, this is a powerful commercial grade fan, but if there is bad coil whine coming out and I put the fan on it, it takes about a minute to stop.

I'm really just trying to understand this issue properly, so I can begin to work out a solution.
Right now the best one is: keep a big *** fan blowing on it.

Any thoughts?

It is not making me crazy but in a silent environment I can clearly hear that sound. I have two questions about it; - Does Coil Whine have any harm on device?

My Dell XPS 15 has an annoying "electrical buzzing" (coil whine).
The sound is only noticeable in a quiet environment but like most people that is the environment I do most my work in. Touching the touchpad (i.e. using the mouse) causes coil whine, holding down backspace causes coil whine, ANY user interaction with the notebook causes coil whine.
When left untouched I can hear subtle coil whine that peaks every second, but I consider that an acceptable level of sound as.
HERE -  This post suggests the cause is a faulty charger. I have had my XPS 9550 for near six months! Six months on a faulty power adapter due to the quality control on Dell's top of the line notebook.
What kind of damage could this have caused to the battery & other components?
Other Issues I've experienced with the DELL XPS 15 9550
- Speakers had terrible buzzing (software patch to fix this appears to be just lowering the maximum volume)
- Bluetooth Devices fail to connect but work fine with other PC's (Razer Orochi)
- Heavy Battery usage & overheat while it should be sleeping or off during transport (appears to be fixed)
- Display was replaced due to dead pixels in center of the screen. (CENTER - QC missed that on a 3K machine?)

A couple of weeks ago I purchased a Latitude E5570(the best I could find from this series) and the very next day I found the following problems:- A coil whine noise was there almost all the time(very annoying, especially for a laptop produced in 2016);- I tired to downgrade from windows 10 to windows 7( I have a software from Siemens that requires Windows 7); even though Dell is saying that this computer should work also on windows 7 and they have drivers on DVD that came with the computer and also on their website I wasn't able to install all hardware components; I was not able to find drivers for everything inside the computer, and during the installation of certain drivers Windows crashed a few times; after a couple of days spent of trying to make windows 7 work I just gave up and installed windows 10 back;- Finally I realized the battery was damaged; Dell's battery test showed that everything is fine, but unfortunately I wasn't able to get more that 90 minutes of autonomy without having to recharge the battery;

I have a 3 month old XPS 13 9530 i7 512gb 16GB Windows 10 Model.
Over the last few weeks I have noticed a pretty loud (audible at over 10 feet away) electrical buzzing noise coming from the machine. The noise is worse if I scroll with the touchscreen or trackpad.
After speaking to Dell customer service, I have been informed by DELL that this is known issue (yep lots of issues documented on the web) but apparently this is completely software related (don't believe that either) and now they are refusing to help me unless I pay a fee for support technical support (I only have a standard warranty)
Firstly, I don't think this is just down to software. But am I the only person who thinks this is just unacceptable? I paid £1400 for this machine recently and now I have to use a pair of headphones to block out the loud noise.
I understand that software support is not included in the standard warranty but surely as this is a known problem I should not be subject to a further charge?
I'm starting to feel like I have been cheated...
Any help or advice would me much appreciated.

HelloNow I know that Dell might not want to give any information about this topic, but I wanted to ask anyway. I will without any doubt buy a new laptop before the end of this year as my current laptop is so unstable that it is a complete no go at any exam.Kaby Lake quad core CPU's will not be hitting the market before 2017. However the nvidia 1050/1050ti will, to my knowledge, be released in October. Also there has just been a significant(around 100USD) discount on XPS 15(and the old 13) on the Dell website. At least on the danish site.This leads me to think that a XPS 15 refresh with a 1050/1050ti might come before the end of the year? Is this possible or are there no doubt that a XPS 15 refresh wont happen before Kaby Lake in 2017?Best RegardsEmil

A few days ago I got the new 9360 with a standard configuration. In general a very nice piece of hardware. I do have a problem however (I am guessing it is the network killer driver). Of course I have been updating all available new drivers including 2DNC8_WN32_1.1.61.1297_A01.EXE
I am an online chessplayer using a chessserver (playchess). Since switching to the XPS 13 I have lag times not experienced before. I have been online multiple times and the result is very much the same. Funny with my 'old ASUS UX31'  I have no such issues. At home I am connected to the same network, and my internet connection is via coax cable.
Since I thought this could not be true I did another test and set the Dell and the ASUS to do a ping test.
Firstly I pinged simultaneous (2 finger system) the chess server which is a long distance from my location (Australia to Germany) and then I pinged google. 
Out of 10 tries the ASUS got 8 times the better ping times then the DELL for both the chess server and google. The ping times for google were of course shorter then the chess server.
Beats me, any idea anyone.

Skylake users given 18 months to upgrade to Windows 10 | Ars Technica

Help me understand how this works? I have a 6700k with w7 and w10. How does Microsoft know which CPU one uses with Windows?

Would, for example, a W7 computer with a 2600k get updates that mine would not?

If I were to get a Kaby Lake CPU and try to install w7 with it, what would happen?

Would only some useless power saving features not work? Would Windows 7 not install at all? What new features are coming in new processors other than power saving shenanigans? I have no idea what that author is talking about. I have installed multiple different Windows OSs via USB with NO "difficulty".

Furthermore, is this just fearmongering? It certainly seems like it may not affect consumers/enthusaists as much as the author implies.

Also, before anyone says "go to 7 forums", one will ALWAYS be comparing older OSs to the newest ones in regards to performance and compatibility thus I feel it's appropriate.

A:Windows 10 and Kaby Lake+

Newer processor may have some new instructions that older OSs don't know about. Similar things were happening in the past. Seems like MS is not going to bother with updates to older windows to be compatible with newer CPUs but Intel may come up with some patch.

I got the system about a month ago and over the past several weeks it has been crashing extremely frequently. Initially it would not resume from sleep, now if I let the screen time out, it will not wake up. I've tried windows updates, windows memory diagnostic and new WiFi drivers. One day it crashed 7 times as I was trying to figure out the problem. If I try and disable or update the Wifi driver after its connected to a network it BSODs. I disabled as much power managment as I could related to WiFi and it seems to have reduced the frequency of crashes, the crashes occur whether or not its plugged in.

I received my XPS13 9360 with i5 KabyLake processor, 8Gb of RAM, and 256Gb SSD configuration  today and I'm impressed with it so far. I ordered a 9350 model with the (i5 SkyLake) last month but returned it to Dell for a refund due to the infamous 'noise' issue, sub-par network card performance, and intermittent speaker distortion. I really like the XPS 13 and dreaded have to send it back; I just couldn't accept the shortcomings and deficiencies considering the amount of money spent. Well, it is obviously too soon to say that there aren't any gremlins hiding and lurking in the 9360 version but I can certainly say that this particular system is working flawlessly--perfect. As far as noticeable differences in processor performance, I really can't say (or care)--I only had the 9350 for a couple of days so I have no basis to compare.  I'm not into hair-splitting or super-sonic performance and could care less about the nanosecond differences in the SkyLake and KabyLake processors. I would have been quite happy with the 9350 had it not been for the gremlins I noted. I'm not the into gamer stuff anyway--the i5 processor is quite suitable for my purposes. However, the little bugger is super fast-scary fast! I am very impressed with the new Killer network card, too. Man, the thing i... Read more

I am on my third Yoga 710 14" unit, all of them had different build quality issues. One was bent, another had a crack between the bottom and top of the chassie, both from factory. On the new one it only took a few weeks before I noticed new problems.  The laptop makes a lot of noise and creaks whenever I lift it up, open or move the screen lid, just change its position on my lap etc. It makes these cheap creaking noises often seen on very cheap old laptops and toys, but this computer is very expensive so it should not do this. It is not a very loud noise, but you can hear it almost all the time unless the laptop is stationary on a table etc. it is espesially noticable if I lift it up and rotate or mildly shakes it. I've never experienced this before, unless it was a very low end laptop. Have any of you encountered this issue before? There is also quite a bit of light bleeding in the top right corner.  It feels very cheap when it makes noises and creaks like that when I simply pick it up.

Hi all, so I am finally about to replace my Yoga 2 Pro. One of my main requirements is battery life for trans atlantic flights. I was initially looking at the 710 15 inch which seems to be getting good battery life, although reviews of the revised Kaby Lake are hard to find. Now with the 910 released, I am also looking at that model. Concerns with both models, the Best Buy versions that have 16gb of the 710 15 inch and 910 both have QHD screens which I am assuming hit the battery for around an hour of battery life vs. the FHD versions. Also the 710 FHD model in Best Buy is the i5 version (I am thinking I could drop an extra 8gb of memory into that revision as I believe there is a free memory slot available?) and so I am wondering would I really see much of a difference in the i5 vs i7, I do not do any HD encoding etc, the most taxing activity would be World of Warcarft which I think should run fine on either at reduced resolution.Last question, on the 710, is the SSD sata or PCIe? Again battery life is a concern, main usage for flights will be watching local video content, both 1080p and 720p. Thoughts?Patrick

Hi! I would like to know whether it is possible to put 32GB of memory (as 2 x 16GB DDR4 SODIMMs) into the Kaby Lake version of the ENVY 15 (specifically, the as104na: http://store.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/Product.aspx?id=ECC_BUNDLE_6156376 ). The documentation suggests that 16GB (as 2 x 8GB SODIMMs) is the maximum, but it's unclear whether this is actually accurate or has just been copied from previous-generation documentation - otherwise-inferior competing products using the same processor and chipset such as http://www.dell.com/uk/p/inspiron-15-7560-laptop/pd?oc=cn75602&model_id=inspiron-15-7560-laptop clearly advertise support for 32GB of memory as 2 x 16GB SODIMMs. I can see that there are similar answers around for previous generations of the product, such as http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Is-32GB-RAM-possible-in-an-HP-E... , but does this answer continue to be true on the new versions? If so, can you offer some explanation as to where this restriction comes from? (For example, if it is really a testing/certification issue rather than some sort of hardware deficiency and therefore actually will likely work (without being explicitly supported) then I would be happy to take my chances with that setup.)
