I get a loud static noise upon boot up with more noise out of the right speaker. Once it has booted up I get spiritic noise. Upon opening a video or music I get static with the audio in the background. I have updated the audio driver with no joy. I even reinstalled factory setup and the BIOS
@mmaloney1 To resolve issues with a noisy fan, as such issues or more or less related to the fan, to confirm, simply connect a headphone to the device and check if the sound continues to occur from the computer, or if it switches to the headphone instead.
If the issue persists from the device and not the headphone, try the below steps:
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 save settings to shut off your computer when it is not in use
