Pinebook Pro malfunctioned hardware

recently my Pinebook Pro, which I bought in July this year, started making a low volumed noise, coming from the mainboard and first the sound stopped working and later on the keyboard and touch pad stopped working. The only working key on the keyboard is the power on/off button.

First I emailed the shop, they told me to email the pinemicrosystems support and there I got the answer that this seems to be a malfunctioned keyboard. But the noise comed from the mainboard and sound is not working and if I plug in a USB sound module, the noise comes over the headphones connected to it. Now I can boot the system up, plug in a USB keyboard and mouse and work with it, but I'm not sure if it's a matter of time until it dies completely or not.

I own some other SBCs, using them every day for years and never had such an issue with those.

Has anybody here experienced this malfunction and knows if it's repairable and how?
