Intel HD Graphics Morse Code Noise

Version 1

    I have a new HP Spectre x360 with Intel HD 5500 graphics.  When I'm in a quiet room or when I put my ear to the laptop I can hear a morse code noise.  It actually sounds a lot like a HDD but of course this laptop has an SSD.  I know the issue is the Intel graphics because when I disable it in Windows device manager, the noise completely disappears.  When I re-enable it, the noise returns.  It seems someone had an identical issue at but the response blamed in something else.


    Any ideas?  There are some reports of similar noises on this laptop and the Sony Vaio from what I can find using google.  I find the noise extremely distracting, and disabling the device isn't an acceptable permanent workaround.
