That's exactly the point, this thing is so powerful, it seems to be screeching the worst whenever it's more or less idle... once i keep my XPS2 somewhat busy, the noise eases. but even that depends on the nature of the processes it performs.
...i wanted to ask around if anyone has had these 'sightings', which initially lead me to believing it's the USB root hub: Whenever the machine idles in XP, it screeches, once i plug in a USB mem stick, it dies down, usually. So, I tried disabling the USB root hubs, worked once to turn it silent, but not always...
And then when I play music via MP10: there is no noise while i play music, even if paused there's no noise. But if i stop it, the screeching comes back...
Anyhow, we all know its friggin annoying, nobody has yet been able to shurely cure this, even replacing parts has not always brought the desired results, WHAT DO WE DO?!?! i didnt buy i centrino, to get angry looks from people around me when i take my work to the library. Yes, i actually work with this computer, too.. hehe..
