My Computer Is Making A Strange Noise.

Have you wonder why your computer is making a strange noise? Or it never made that sound before? Don't wonder further. This often helps the technician diagnose the problem. Just read this article.

Your computer, much like your car, may sometimes alert you to

the fact that something is wrong. When you take your car to

the repair shop you probably tell the technician that it is

making some strange noise that you have never heard before.

This often helps the technician diagnose the problem.

Computers have the same advantage. Often the noises that a PC

makes will tell you what the problem is. I have tried to match

the noise, tuff to do when writing it, with the problem. Listen

to your PC and then check below to see if you hear a match.

Remember, if your PC is making noise that it didnt make when

it was new means it has a problem and depending on the severity

could cause permanent damage.

Sounds Like&..

No noise, my computer use to have a noise put in the last few

days has been pretty quite.

Stop what you are doing and check the back of your PC, there

will be a grill area next to the power cord connector with a

fan installed. If you cant feel any air coming out of the fan

take a closer look to see if the fan is running. If the fan is

not turning (with the computer on), you have a problem with the

power supply. You must replace the fan as soon as possible.

In most cases it is cheaper to replace the power supply that

houses the fan rather then attempting to replace the fan alone.

The fan in your computers power supply is what cools the

internal components and if its not working you will overheat

the PC.

My computer makes a loud noise that is constant; it never made

that sound before! Again, this is probably a fan problem;

follow the steps above to make sure its not the power supply

fan. Most computers also have internal fans, they may be

mounted on one of the expansion slots of your PC, you will

most probably have one or two attached to the CPU (Central

Processing Unit). You must open the computer case to check these.

THIS IS IMPORTANT, the CPU fans must be working, with the case

off, turn your computer on, NEVER TOUCH INTERNAL COMPONENTS

WHILE THE PC IS ON. Check to make sure all fans are running.

If there is a fan that is not turning or is turning erratically

turn your PC off and check the wire power connections to the fan.

Restart the PC and check to see if this fixed the problem.

If a fan is still not running replace it right away. The CPU

fan cools the processor and its imperative that it remains on.

When I use my CD-ROM/CD-Writer, my PC makes loud noises and

shakes the whole thing!

The new high-speed CD devices make this noise because of the

high speed, this is normal.

Sometimes my computer is makes a clanging noise when it starts

and it seems to be getting worse! This noise is perfect

indication that your hard drive is dying. Stop now and backup

any important data that you haveComputer Technology Articles, because once the hard drive

starts making a loud clanging sound it wont be long before

your PC stops booting to it. There is no way to repair the hard

drive so you will need to purchase a new one.
