Hi MaorAtias,

I am sorry for the inconvenience. Please pay attention to check from which side of the laptop the tick noise comes. Is there any sound from the system while you are working on it? Do you experience anything moving inside while you gently shake the laptop?

If I won't move the laptop everything is fine when I lift it up from the desk in a fast movement then the tick occur.

when I shake it I can hear something moving inside I mean its not 100% quite.

Hi, I am facing a similar problem. My Dell XPS14z have started to making a strange noise. I can definitely say it comes from the left side and seems to get louder after many hours working.


I made a video recording the noise:
