Check the fans that cool the microprocessor, maybe one of them is rubbing against the case.
Are you or husband mechanically inclined? It's easy to open the case to laptops and access the fans.

I am, but i have no idea which panel i would open on it, and i dont know if i should muck with it if that would ruin a replacement here. its an IBM thinkpad. what panel would i open?

Oh, what a shame! If you just got it, I'd be contacting the company and see what they will do about it rather than trying to mess with it yourself! Good luck!

I'm sorry it's not working, hopfully it will be somthing easy like it being dirty and some gunk is cloging up the fan or somthing. <<<Computer fixing vibes>>>

I hope whatever is wrong with your computer is easy to fix. Not to scare you too much, but when the hard drive on my desktop computer failed several years ago the first symptom was a grinding noise. Good luck finding the problem.

wow those tcs vibes work. i went to fire up my laptop just to see if i could..and although it made some noise..it booted. so perhaps its the fan after all. I still have a call into the people though i dont think it should be giving me any trouble so soon.
