With my computer, when it is turned on, there will be a loud whirring noise during the BIOS loading and when Windows starts loading. But when i get to the login screen for Windows, the whirring stops. While running linux (Debian, Red Hat, Suse, Knoppic, etc), however, the whirring never stops and continues until i shut off the computer.
The whirring noise i later found was the fan. Does anybody know how to remedy this problem? Thank you!
My computer is Sony Vaio DESKTOP.
