    This problem first occured one week ago and it won't go away. I have a Panasonic Toughbook CF-73 portable computer. The problem is that when I start certain programs (for example when I start Skype Internet telephony, iTunes and when I'm on certain Internet sites using either the Explorer browser or the Mozilla Firefox browser) a sharp sound starts sounding from inside the computer. The sound is strongest near the fan. The sound continues until the program (Skype, iTunes etc.) is closed or if I start playing an mp3. But as soon as I pause the mp3 the sound starts again.Even if I have no sound on the speakers I can hear the sound from inside the computer. But if I start an mp3, even if the speakers are off, it goes away. the sound is driving me crazy and I would be foreever thankful to the person who could help me get rid of it.
