Latitude 7480 Coil Whine and Crackling Sound

A detailed review of the Latitude 7480 notes the laptop has a very noticeable coil whine when the SSD is accessed or background processes are active, and there are several posts on this support forum regarding speaker crackling. Have both of these issues been fixed on new Latitude 7480s?

RE: Latitude 7480 Coil Whine and Crackling Sound

I have Latitude 7480 and I have both the issues you mentioned  - the issues have NOT been fixed so far.

I hope that Dell understands that there are a few serious hardware\software issues with the recently released Latitude 7480 which have to be fixed ASAP.

Thank you for responding to my question. Do you have a SATA Class 20 SSD or an NVMe Class 40 SSD?

@Hlberger and Tx155,

I realize that this is an older post but do you both still need assistance? If so, send me a friend request with your service tags and we'll get some support options.
