    Hi Guys,
    I recently got my computer back from a repair centre. It is an ACER Aspire 180. It was covered by warranty so I sent it in for repair. It came back with an MSI motherboard instead of an ACER motherboard and now I have this noisy fan which I never had at all with the ACER motherboard. Its annoying as I liked my quiet computer and now when putting it on standby , the fan continues operate which it never did before it went in for repair. It sounds like my old WINDOWS ME computer.
    What should I do, do I phone the place I got it and demand an ACER motherboard!!, any suggestions please,:(

    Just have the repair center change the fan. The fan noise doesn't have a direct nexus to the board.
