Laptop "whine," stops only when connected wirelesly.

  1. Hi

    Trying to help a friend fix her laptop, but there is one irritating problem, with a Very high pitched whine, which im assuming is coming from the processor (Pentium M 760) but it stops when connected to the internet wirelesly, throught the built-in adapter. Does anyone know what to do??? It has been riddled with spyware and the like, but i dont think thats part of the problem!

    Is it the adapter??

    It is an Acer Travelmate 4064WLMi
    2.0Ghz
    512mb Ram.

    Please help everyone :)

    Thanks, Toddy

    That sounds like some sort of hardware malfunction. Did you try her warranty?
