Brand new OMEN 15 laptop constantly making high pitched sound, very frustrating

HP Recommended
OMEN Laptop 15-ek0xxx

The sound that is coming from the laptop is high pitched and very distracting and quite irritating after a few minutes, its a constant high pitch sound and it seems like it coming from the fans of the laptop.


After spending a large amount of money on this laptop its very disappointing.


if anyone can help me out it would be great, can it be fixed? should I just send it back and get another one or give up on omen and look for something else?
