When the laptop is making noises, we recommend you to double check the source of the noise – where’s it coming from?

Hard drive noises: read/write grinding noise

Speaker noises: humming or buzzing noise

Fan noises: the airflow rise in noise or the rubbing noise

If the noise is from the hard drive, we recommend you to turn off the hard drive power saving, if the problem still persist, please contact MSI customer service.

If the noise is from the Speaker, please refer to [How to fix audio crackling, noisy problem?

If the noise is from the fan, please follow the instructions below to troubleshoot

When the noise sounds like two hardware touching, please contact MSI customer service.

Check to see if the “Cooler Boost” function is enabled. (This is only for the models with the Cooler Boost button.) If the Cooler Boost function is enabled, please press the Cooler Boost button to turn the function off and check to see if the noise still remains. Louder than average noise while Cooler Boosts is operation is normal since, during that time, the fan(s) run at the highest speeds possible, resulting in greater airflow.

Check to see if the noise still persists after tuning down the fan speed using the “MSI Dragon Center” software.
