    Soft buzzing noise from GL502-WS71 under load

    I’ve had a GL502VS-WS71 for about a year with no issues. Today I noticed that when under load there is a very faint buzzing noise coming from somewhere above the keyboard but below the screen. It’s different than the fan noise per de and I actually only noticed it when (to be very specific) I was playing Hearts of Iron IV and zoomed in on a snowy Finland which is very white and bright. I’ve noticed on some other properly functioning laptops that the screen sometimes make a very faint, barely audible whine when showing a bright screen; this is different but perhaps a similar level of noise (though in the case it’s definitely not coming from the screen). I don’t notice it until I go to a bright image when under load. It goes away when the load goes down. Anyone had this and is there anything I can/should do short of taking it apart or sending it for repair?

    search for “Coil Whine”

    Apparently there is an option in the application ThrottleStop that can help with that, although i’ve never tried it myself.*

    This doesn’t really sound like coil whine. I’ve had that before. This is more of a buzz. It’s a lower pitch.

    It appears to come from somewhere approximately underneath the space between the F9/F10 keys and the screen.
