Having problems with your Sony VAIO PCV-W500GN1 PC Desktop ?

HI MY UNIT WAOMT come on all i hear is the fan it get loud and spins but no picture and no chime sound


Answers :

The only suggestion useful to you would be to unplug all the wire from the back of the unit. Wait 3 minutes or so and then plug them back in.

If your audio is hooked into your monitor then no picture and sound might be just be your montior (if the lights on the computer stay on). Hit the CD eject button on your computer after giving your computer a chance to boot up. If it has power then for sure it has to be your monitor.

Otherwise the problem will be in the powersupply or the motherboard. Hope this helps. Best Regards, -md

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

Ticking Sound We have a Compaq laptop (CQ50-139WM) that is only 3 months old. It started ticking from under the speakers on the left side. It is a very loud tick that gets faster until it is very steady (Imagine something hitting a fan as it gets started). If we squeeze the computer, it stops. Any idea what might be causing this?


I just checked the HP site and it looks like it is indeed the cooling fan. The cooling fan is on the left-hand side with the vents under the left rear side. Check the screws, one or two may be loose. Also, something may have come loose on the inside ... HP Compaq Presario CQ50-130US Notebook
