I can always tell I'm about to see a Flash widget because my laptop starts a high whine. I usually click a link, hear the whine, then see the Flash. The annoying high pitch sound continues until I leave the page. I imagine my new laptop doesn't like it. "Whaaaaaa! Flash. Whaaaaa...," it's saying. "ok, ok, shut up!" I say then click away. It's a fairly new Dell. Maybe Dell has something against Flash.

sound driver problem, dude. look for an upgrade.
but the whine isn't coming from the speakers, it's coming from *inside somewhere*.
Have you tried defragging the hard drive or deleting Flash, defragging, and reinstalling Flash? It could be your hard drive complaining.
Thanks for the tips. I didn't mean for this to become a support forum. But while we're at, maybe I can get some help with some programming problems...anyone know how to sort a multi-dimensional array? (just kidding.)
