Interesting David. Thanks for explaining. I didn't know you could turn narrator on as it's booting. Is this your main laptop? I just worry about filling that drive up in 5 minutes. smile.

Hi guys!
My HP Stream 11 has a SSD drive, and no fan. I have nothing to hear what so ever. It makes it interesting, because sometimes, it locks, and I can’t tell if it is still on or has it totally turned off LOL! Sometimes, it comes down to holding down the power button a few seconds and then I know I have shut it down. Then, I just tap the power button, and it turns on. Now, when you start the computer, you can turn on Narrator quickly, and it will take you through the start up before JAWS or NVDA starts talking LOL!
It has been an adventure, but this baby only weighs 2 and a half pounds, and has a 128 Gig SSD Drive, and four Gigs of ram. This thing never gets hot, so it does not need a fan LOL!
Take care, guys!

If you have a hybrid laptop, you do not have any sound!

There is no sound from an SSD. The machine will still have a system fan for

the CPU and RAM, however, which you may be able to hear.

How do you know when a pc with and ssd drive is running? If you can't

see it, is there still something you can hear? Both our pcs still have

regular drives so we're curious.
