  1. I have been reading around about other threads I didn't quite get an answer... ok I just got a brand new vaio I have been having various problems with it just small trying to work it out... just about everything is fixed except when I run a program I get a high pitched noise... I don't mean just any program I mean programs such as counterstrike, or sometimes a virus scan, I know it's the fan speeding up to keep cool, but is it supposed to make a high pitched noise?

    The smaller the fan you have, the higher its pitch.

    And a high RPM 80mm fan is pretty high pitched.

    The 40mm ones are just unbearable, as I found out today. But I can't remove it as its in my new 24port switch.

    sony vaios were, like other oem builds, put here to make the corporations even more money, regardless of whether or not they were good products. sorry but that's just what you get with such a product. un;ess ther eis an actual problem that the warranty covers, you are SOL.

    If it bothers you that much, you could always replace it with a higher quality fan
