Re: Dell vostro 5490 making static noise when plugged in

Yes @michaelmorton , it is quite disappointing they have no idea what the issue is since it is clear that many people have it.

So far the only response I got was to ask me to update the BIOS, because the new motherboard came with an old version. This is really frustrating as it clearly did not solve the issue the first time so it is obvious it will have no effect now.

My guess is that they will try to replace the battery and see what happens. I still believe this is some design flaw though...

Sure this is a design flaw though ... many Dell notebooks have this problem ... Inspiron / Vostro.
This is no standalone problem for the Vostro 5490 ... I know, because we have a lot of different Dell notebooks ...

So they installed a new motherboard and they did not update the BIOS? Amateurish, no?

I agree @gleva86, if that may be the source for the problem then they should add this important step to the service request.

The fun part is having to go through all the previous steps again even though nothing that was suggested made any difference before.

I'm still waiting on their feedback after I sent some extra information they requested.

Hi RafaelD, our product group team has confirmed there will be some electrical noise from the system & the noise level is within the spec. Kindly try to delete the IDPTF driver from Device manager (delete driver) & update from the Support site followed by a BIOS update again. Check if that helps.^PC
