I purchases a Soni VAIO PC few days ago. It came with windows XP home edition. I purchased the computer to instal Windows 2000 server and Linux.
Having a large hard drive, I installed one partition the factory Sony software(Windows XP) and the other Windows .Net Server Beta version. When I longin the Windows XP the computer gets quiet after few senconds and I can use it the whole day without any noise. But when I login the Windows .Net Sever the noise is so high it fills the whole room. It is the fan noise.
Any suggestion what I might do to reduce the noise.
