Sorry for the delayed reply. No, I have not solved this problem. I got it checked for free by Fujitsu UK - they were very courteous and I was pleased with the service, but they proclaimed that it works just fine. The noise is unbearable and I can't take it to meetings these days. Even the expensive noise-cancelling microphone on my webcam cannot annul the noise and its almost useful for skype chat! I found another forum where a lot of people are having the same problem. http://forums.techarena.in/portable-dev ... ost5601667
I thought I was the only one, but it seems to be a very common problem. I am willing to pay to do something to keep the noise quiet, but I have no clue what to do. Perhaps replace the fan with a silent one? I wonder if it would be possible for Fujitsu to release a BIOS update to control the fan?
Fujitsu needs to acknowledge this problem and do something about it!!!!!
