RE: HELP Discrete GPU: noise / clicking sound - Alienware 13
It can be difficult at times to determine what can cause this type of noises. There is a test you can run to determine if the system may be experiencing a hardware problem. It’s known as the PSA/Diagnostic test which can be found in the boot menu.
Click here to view an article that explains how to run the test. Please try running this test first and let us know if you receive any error messages, if you do get errors, please provide us with the error code and the message for the failed component.
