I have a Sony VGN-BX540B with a 160 GB HHD and 2GB of memory. I am running Windows XP PRO Service Pack 2 with all updates. It has a Intel Pentium M 2.00 GHz processor. Since new the fan has run all the time that the laptop is turned. I asked Sony tech and was told that it was to protect the motherboard from getting too hot. Everything works fine but it does annoy people around me. I use a raised stand to allow air to circulate also. Has anyone else had this happen?

Hi there,

it can be that your machine is set on "performance"  in the PowerPanel Setup. You could compromise some speed to silence, then just change the settings.
