Subject: Re: Inspiron 8000 makes high pitch noise only with 2.6.0-test1

thank you. I will try this. But doesn't this mean, that it will
consume more power? My belief is that this had worked with
2.4 without that noise.
You said it helped you and others. Has this been discussed on
this or some other mailing list?

Thank you
