    I finally received my 2500 and it is making this high pitched squeal, that is driving me crazy. Anyone else having this problem? or anyone know a fix?

    Might be a problem w/ the fan, did you order it customized, or did you buy it retail, if you bought it retail, take it back & have the geeksquad look at it, if you bought it customized, contact HP about finding an authorized repair center.

    the noise is not from the fan, it may be the hard drive or hard drive area, so far it getting hp to replace it has been a problem because my computer is the 2.4gz model

    Do you hear the squeal when running on battery power only? Or do you hear it when it's plugged in too?

    i don't know the tv noise you are referring to, but it is a squeel like a fingernail on a chalk board, only the pitch is higher and it is allmost constant. the hard drive is the fitijsu.

    Yeah, I get the squeal too! but only when it is running on battery. It goes away when I plug it in. Blah its highly annoying. Its the same sort of squeal that many people experienced with the C2D based systems a while ago.
