Apart from the rasping noise when I turn the computer on in the morning, there are a couple of other problems:
(1) The USB posts are "sticky" - sometimes they don't work. If I take out the connection and retry it, it's usually OK. For example, my attached keyboard or mouse will suddenly stop working and I have to disconnect and then reconnect it.
(2) The right hand speaker doesn't work.
I'm starting to wonder whether my Compaq nx8220 is about to die on me.
Any advice very welcome. :)
