You have just purchased a new Samsung brand SSD hard drive, for example Samsung SSD EVO 860. After plugging it into the computer and installing Windows operating system on it, you realize that there are shrill noises that sound like hissing.
Can an SSD hard drive make noise?
Normally an SSD hard drive has no moving or moving physical parts, so there is a priori no possibility of the drive generating internal noise.
So where does this noise come from that sounds like either a buzz or a whistle?
Most likely it is electrical interference with your audio system. The interferences are geolocated at the level of the hard disk which has just been installed. Unplug the speakers and see if the noise is still there. If the noise goes away, then that is the source of the problem. This noise will disappear fairly quickly over time.
If the problem persists, it may be due to the hard drive being under voltage, ie your power supply is not powerful enough. Installing a power supply with a larger capacity can solve this problem.
Also, make sure you've securely attached the drive to a metal cage designed specifically to house the storage device. Check that the screws used to secure the drive to its housing are tight.
If the entire computer is new, check to see if the noise is coming from a fan or the PC case.
