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.
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
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
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.
