Why is the fan sometimes so noisy?

    The fan is noisy sometimes.

    The VAIO computer is fitted with a high efficiency fan to cool the system more effectively. Short duration (1 to 2 seconds) of noise can usually be heard when

    - the computer is initially turned on, or
    - shifted from a standby/hibernate mode, or
    - when the computer is running intensively.

    This high efficiency fan is used to cool the system efficiently and prevent over heating of the computer.
