Noisy Packard Bell Laptop

I have read through some of the old messages in this NG and realise I
have probably made a mistake in purchasing a Packard Bell laptop, as
it is extremely noisy.

I have spoken to support staff who have been less than helpful (maybe
not their fault if they're supporting stuff that's not very good).

My main issue is: the darned thing is SO very noisy. There is  a
constant noise of a fan running.

I've tried setting the hard disk power settings to "shutdown" after 3
minutes, but still thsi noise persists.

Any other suggestions gratefully received.

If this is a P4 variant, then it is normal for the fan to run
continuously.  You might find some help in the power management,
particularly if it has a proprietary power manager with "quiet mode",
"cpu throttling", etc.  Frankly, I think with a week or so of use you'll
not notice the noise so much.  But, fan noise is the price for a P4
