Is it actually "not working" though, even at the hardware level? To my
knowledge those noises are normal, and aren't even signs of a harware
problem. I believe it is the natural result of changing frequencies at any
time. If you change frequencies, especially in the low end of available
frequencies, you should hear a very brief noise. A governor such as
ondemand, which is rapidly switching the frequency from say, 333 MHz to
2.66 GHz, is likely to make this much more noticable.

It's only normal if your vendor used cheap noisy components. This
would be a fatal flaw for a system that was intended for audio
production for example.
