I have a Sony Vaio PCV-MXS20 desktop. When I turn the system on the fan is very loud. If I select XP Home Edition it quiets down when everything is loaded. If I select Professional Edition at boot the fan does not quiet down, it stays loud even after everything is loaded. What can I do to make it quieter like Home Edition? Thanks for your help.

You most likely got XP-Home with the machine, and it has the automatic fan control as part of the package. You may be able to download the drivers that control the fan from Sony to get the same effect in XP-Pro, that's where I'd start.
