I use my HP dv9030 laptop for a portable recording studio, and at first this laptop was as quiet as could be. I loved it! ...Until I upgraded it to Vista
Then the processor fan noise started (I think that's what it is). I ended up taking Vista off eventually and restoring the notebook to its factory conditions OS-wise. It helped a little bit, but the processor fan seemed to have passed a point of no return.
I've even reformatted my drive again and uninstalled as much of the bloatware as I can. So I've got just what I need in terms of programs and not too much extra stuff.
This seems to not really have helped very much. Does anyone have any other ideas of how to quiet it down? Maybe something in Power management?
I appreciate any ideas or suggestions.
Many Thanks for any help, Frank B.
