I recently noticed, my graphicscard seem to make noise when something visibly changes on any of my monitors including the laptops builtin screen.
It appears on actions like scrolling a webpage or hovering something that changes anything visibly. It's very quietly and noticeable within ~40cm (16 inches). It sound's similar to the scratchy noise of a harddisk but is much more quiet and slightly different.
- It only occurs on Linux (manjaro) and not on Windows (10)
- It happens on changes no matter which program I scroll in, etc.
- It happens during the whole image change (e.g. throughout scrolling)
I did not know that a graphicscard ever would make any noise. It could be the harddisk though.
Q: Why does this sound appear? Is there anything been written to the harddisk when the image on a screen changes?
Q: Could it be some systemd conspiracy stuff that's recording screen changes or so? Don't think I'm joking, just want to push my research in all possible directions.
Q: Do I have to worry for upcoming hardware issues in the near future?
