I keep hearing this "buzzing" type noise in my E1705. You know the three light that are on the computer, near the bottom right of the monitor, the power light, the middle light (I don't know what thats for), and the battery light...well each time the MIDDLE light blinks, I hear a static/buzzing noise. The noise follows the beat of the middle light - so if it blinks once, the noise comes once. If it blink two times, the noies comes two times. If the light blinks very fast, then the noise happens very fast. The light/noise only happen when I am doing a few things at once. I don't know if you guys know what I mean. When I was updating Steam, the light kept blinking every 1-2 seconds, and the noise kept coming. That is when I noticed it. The Steam update took 15-20 minutes, and the noise came throughout the entire thing. It is NOT happening now as I type this though. I want to know if this is normal or not. I think it is normal, but I just want to make sure. The noise is not continous. It happens every 1-2 seconds, just as the light. The middle light is for the hard drive right? I guess the noise happens when something is accessing the hard drive. I have a 100GB 7200rpm HD. Does this have anything to do with that noise? Can you E1705 owners comment on this. Thanks alot.
