Question about Dell XPS M1210 Notebook
When my laptop boots i get this loud noise until the windows splash screen displays then it stops and the computer operates normal. Have not seen any changes in performance as it relates to being slow or anything. The noise dont sound like the fan
Most likely it is the POST throttling up the fan to 100% during boot up. Then it switches over to ACPI(?) power manangement and Windows manages your fan speed to extend battery life.
Go to Dell Support Site https://support.dell.com/support/supportrequests/create.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs
Download the latest BIOS updates and run it.
If it continues, try a can of compressed air, and breifly blow out any debris from the system fan. Bits of paper and critter-fur can get sucked up into the system.
