    i can tell you it is not the drive because the replacement they sent me was another brand and the computer was making the same noise.

    After talking to HP tech, here is the options that I got.
    Option 1: Get my TX2500z serviced which takes about 7 - 9 days.
    Option 2: Replace with 2.2GHz CPU with one extra 4 cell battery.
    I asked about 2.4GHz CPU. They basically said there is no such option for replacement. So what happened to 2.4GHz. I also have my own option 3 which is taking this laptop back to Costco where I got it from. Can anyone give me some suggestion?

    Costco is selling the 2.4? If that is the case, can you check and see if they have any left (and see if you can exchange)?

    I am not sure what you should do.. I've read that a few people who are having the same problem have replaced theirs with the 2.2ghz.

    there is practically no difference between the 2.2 and 2.4 ... so not having 2.4 available right now should not be a deal breaker for anyone.

    Costco doesn't have 2.4 anymore same as HP. I don't know if there is no difference between 2.2 and 2.4. It would be nice to have some benchmark available to compare.

    yeah, I wouldn't let not having the 2.4 prevent you from getting another one of these personally!
