Re: My Problem with Stretch - thin mosquito-like noise from HDD partition

Hello everebody, few months ago I have reported my problem with stretch, when a thin - mosquito-like noise coming from somewhere from the laptop and I have found that is a probably a matter of HDD because it stop for few seconds when I mounted/unmounted the partition of my seconds disk (system on SSD in the CD/DVD tray). Today I have finaly resolve this noise when I played a little with the configuration of the gnome-disk-utility. There is an option to use APM and to put the drive to sleep and so others. This will help and no noise come from the laptop no more. Thank you all for the helpfull hands. Greetings, Tibi

Good point. The noise might come from the HDD, but it might well be
something else, and voltage converter coils are good candidates.
