Help Please - Our newish Toshiba Laptop is emitting a high pitched whine at all times.Even when the machine is switched off.
Ideas about the problem will be appreciated.

"newish"
If it's still under guarantee, take it back.

Thanks for the comment but,luckily, the problem has been solved.
Having removed the battery the whine persisted so I knew that it was not the Laptop. The noise came from a nearby radio clock ! Red faces all round - sorry Toshiba I bought from you because of your reputation for reliability !
