now i am in qubes... but how can qubes work with disabled virtualization
and VT-d in BIOS??
the noise is ok so far... i hear it but it is very quiet
It does sound like coil whine... When you plugged your laptop in, it
changed the power usage profile of the motherboard. VT-d could be a
factor, but the real culprit is components that are falling out of spec.
A common trigger of coil whine for older laptops was USB power saving. I
wouldn't be surprised if the noise changed on your system by assigning
(or un-assigning) USB controllers to sys-usb, for example (this is also
related to VT-d). You may also be able to reduce the noise by changing
USB power-saving parameters in sys-usb.
