Have you had anything to say about this since buying and bluescreens? And right away away: Lufter from the power supply is not. If I move the mouse it's not Lufter. Already thought to admit that back and on and then goes into a very loud Quitschen.

Since the installation makes noise breeding halt as arc welding cause, even with failure of the backlight. I've already wrapped them completely in paper and re-installed so you can hear nothing externally what can that be?
