Laptop gives off a high pitched screech ONLY upon start ups

I've just bought a brand new laptop 3 weeks ago and just recently I've realize that every time i restart/ shutdown and turn on the computer there is a short high pitch screech. The screech occurs where the windows vistas processing bar is running back and fourth during startup. (Sorry i'm not very tech savy so i'm not sure what that page is called.) I am positive that the sound does not emit through the speakers, therefore i guess it could be the fan? Please help, thank you for your assistance!

Screeching noise coming from driver side tire


The high pitch sound may come from the brake pads as metal parts hit the disc to signal the owner that it needs change. The metal parts gets exposed when the pads have worn out. The brake also has a hub to cover the disc. See if the metal plate is hitting it but this issue would appear when the wheels are in motion. Check if it is the belts, have the tension checked out. Other than that the bearings are the other items on your wheel that could cause a high pitched sound when you car is in motion.

High pitch screech w/no signal


is this a picture tube type of tv? big in back? If so, it could be the tube/circuit short.

If it flatpanel, it could be a bad capacitor in the DM or "Y" board or even possibly faulty power supply. Further testing will be necessary

This is going to be a problem either with the sound card malfunctioning after the machine warms up, or feed back from the speakers due to a wiring issue. Either way, this is a hardware problem, and you shouldn't have this or any problem with the machine, especially with it only being 10 days old. Take it back for an exchange. Demand an exchange and don't let them give you the run around. When you get the new machine, you will see that you shouldn't have any problems with it for years to come. Also, don't let this bother you about Dell machines, they're one of the best machines on the market. Just like everything else, there are a few lemons.
