I have also D90, but I remember my consternation after I made first pictures and checked them on the computer... Why I bought a new camera, which produced so much noise...???, I thought. Fortunately it was not so hard to find the reason...:)
Default seting of ISO is "auto control" ON. If you go to ISO sensitivity settings in MENU you can adjust the maximum sentivity for this auto control. 3200 is the highest, you can go easily lower and "save" it.
If you use manual settings of ISO, this feature is OFF ( of course ).

Hope to help you!

I have a D90 and that doesn't happens to me, perhaps the best source will be to see the manual, pr go to www.nikon.com
