I have a new MSI ge72 apache pro 17.3" laptop. It was great up until last Thursday. It did a "massive" windows update (it seriously took about an hour and a half for it to apply the update.
After that, my sound got extremely crackly and was breaking (I could fix this by disabling realtek driver, then doing driver update and selecting just the basic high definition audio driver and not the realtek one). But if only that were the only problem.... It now also emits this very high pitched whine/ring sound. It did not do this before the update. Luckily it is a bit faint, so if I have other sound going I will not hear it, but if not I can hear a quiet ringing in my ears.
I haven't found anything that helps me online. It stops while I scroll up and down a web page or changes occur on the laptop screen. I am wondering if it is a display issue... 
Just wondering if anyone has any tips or suggestions on possibly fixing this. This is seriously weeks old and is very, very disappointing to have occur if I have to send this back in....
