Whining sound.

HP Recommended
Pavilion TP01-0026na Desktop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
Just received a HP Pavilion TP01-0026na Desktop, that I bought from HP. It makes an almost constant whining sound. The whining sound produced by my HP Pavilion TP01-0026na Desktop is especially noticeable / irritating when the surroudings are quiet. Even my Dad (aged 78) with poor hearing, can hear this whining sound. My old HP Pavilion Slimline Desktop never made such a sound, and in comparison always seemed almost completely quiet. Furthemore, I don't game.
If I had known that this whining sound would occur, I would not have bought it.
Are your computers not tested for such sounds before they leave the factory?
Please help, with simple instructions, as I have limited knowledge regarding computers?
Perth, Scotland (constituent country), UK.
 
Update: It seems to have quietened down. Though it was quite loud for about 1.5 days.
 
Further Update: The whining seems to have returned.

@Thomas5624 Welcome to HP Community!

 

I understand that you are getting Whining sound from the laptop.

 

 No worries as I'd love to help, however, I need a few more details to provide an accurate solution:

 

Did you update the BIOS?

Does the noise appear when booting into windows or while you play any specific game, video, etc?

 

I have a few recommendations:

  • Updating your Notebook computer BIOS
  • Keeping notebook air vents clear and clean
  • Increasing the efficiency of the notebook to reduce heat
  • Using Windows Task Manager to identify corrupt processes
  • Selecting power saves settings to shut off your computer when it is not in use

All the hp desktop tp01 have this problem and unusual noise cause of bad internal design of factory.

Hp should [edit]this type of desktop!!!!

I have disappointed about HP for this bad design.

I have already sent a form for return this product and get my money back.

I am looking forward to hear an official and honest reply from hp.

Sorry, this is late.

It is now a lot quieter, but still louder than I would like. However, I can live with it.

Thank you all for your help.

I tried to reply to each individual helper, however, this is the result:

 

Sorry, this is late.

It is now much quieter, but still louder than I would like. However, I can live with it.
