Thank you for joining the Intel communities.
Please try downloading and installing the driver from the following link:
I suggest uninstalling the Intel driver you have installed first and then install the Beta driver from the link I have posted above.
Please see Uninstalling the Intel® Graphics Driver
Thank you Ivan, but: not fixed.
I uninstalled the existing Intel HD Graphics 520 driver using the Device Manager method described in your uninstall link. Again I confirmed the buzzing noise is gone when the device rolls back to the Microsoft generic driver. I installed the beta driver in your link, and the buzzing noise returned, same as before. I am happy to try again if you have another driver version ...
You can try the latest generic driver; you can download it at the following link:
This is not a Beta driver is the official one.
Please bear in mind that we have tested this driver many times and we have not experience this issue, at this point I would suggest you to contact your laptop manufacturer and ask them to do a test with a laptop similar like the one you have to see if they experience the same issue, to me this could be power supply issues or grounding but I can’t confirm it
I just received my Dell XPS 9350 today. Same issue using same drivers as mentioned by tragicmonkey049.
Dell XPS 13 9350 shipped from Dell on April 18, 2016
BIOS & Windows fully updated after unboxing
Windows 10 x64
16GB onboard memory
Intel i7 processor
Rolled back to Microsoft Generic Graphics Driver. (Including erasing prior driver software).
Buzzing noise gone.
Installed latest generic driver, version: 22.214.171.124.4380
Buzzing noise returns as soon as the screen flashes after install. Persists after restart.
Dell has agreed for me to return the device.
Dell shipped a new unit, which resolved the problem.
The new device has Intel(R) HD Graphics 520 driver version 126.96.36.19931 installed.
To be more detailed: The buzzing noise is there, but can only be heard in a completely silent room with my ear a few cm away from the Esc key. I consider this "resolved." But I am a little worried that it may intensify over time if a mechanical connection issue is part of the cause...
In this case, if the problem gets worse please let me know to see what else we can do for you.
I hope from now on you can have a better experience with this unit and with the Intel® graphics.
One month follow up: No noise problems at all.
Not sure why replacing the unit fixed the issue, perhaps the Intel Graphics driver pushes hardware performance more than the generic Microsoft video driver, and some units have a hardware flaw that amplifies the buzz up to audible level with the added load? Regardless, I consider this resolved. Thanks!
I’m glad that this issue has been resolved and I appreciate you have taken your time to let me know the issue has been resolved.
