Having problems with your Acer AM5641-B5560A Desktop PC & Monitor BUNDLE ?
Upon booting, fans whirl and I can hear HDD
\015 Upon booting, the fans whirl and I can hear HDD spining but monitor gave a short message "no signal found" and goes blank. I tried another monitor (non Acer) but it stays blank. Checked power supply with voltage checker and found the -5v light not lit, so replaced PS with a new one and still no video signal. Inserted a post card and it halts on "d4". In checking I find it is "checking base memory and that it might hang if test fails." I've tried other DIMMS but no luck. Any suggestions? \015\012Thank you.\015\012lek\015

BOOTING PROBLEM My laptop is compaq presario v3029 AU.My laptop faced booting problem twice within the warranty period and the motherboard was replaced.Now its happened for the third time and replacing motherboard,would cost me half the price I had purchased my laptop for.I feel the problem am facing is repairable instead of replacing.The compaq service technicians have not given me any convincing reason for the problem occurring twice and they just repalced.However I feel it could be repaired.

My Dell Dimension E510 is making a "whirring" noise. It whirls loudly when I turn it on, like something inside is struggling to get up to speed. The computer takes more time than usual to become operable and open programs. Then with the computer on, the "whirring" comes and goes, it is more quite, but more uneven. Sounds like it's going fast sometimes, then speeds up and back and forth. I've opened the computer and cleaned the dust out of it. That didn't help. HELP. VHS
So what could make "whirring" sounds in a computer? Motors. What has motors? Fans, Hard Disc Drives, Floppy Drives and CD/DVD ROM Drives. I can't think of anything else. It doesn't sound like a CD/DVD/Floppy drive because you would only hear the nois ... Dell Dimension E510 PC Desktop
