The computer sounds like it's racing. It speeds up and slows down. It's not the normal sound, it's been doing this for about two weeks and I cleaned the dust out of the fans that I could get to.


If the PC is a few years old, the bearing on the fans might be failing, causing more noise. The speeding/slowing is because the temperature sensors on the motherboard, fan, or case are telling the fans what speed to go for more or less cooling. ... PC Desktops

Display Problems I have had my dv9000 for about 4 months. When I purchased it I had it configured with 3 Gb Ram and 512Mb Video Ram. Everything has been great and its been running awesome. Until now.

I own a 1 year old Dell Studio 1535. Its original battery died, so I purchased a generic one online. When I turned on the laptop with the battery only (not plugged in), it said battery not recognized,but still the laptop continued to run. The battery was only 47% full. When I plugged in the adapter to charge the battery, it said "Plugged in, but not charging." What should I do to get it to charge? Or is it impossible to charge a generic battery with an original dell adapter?

I have Dell Inspiron 1521 that is 2 years old (although it has only been used about 8 months total). I got an error about it not recognizing my ac adapter (the original ac adapter from Dell that it came with) & the battery wouldn't charge. Now the battery is dead. The light on the ac adapter is green even when plugged into the laptop. When ac is plugged in to the laptop the battery icon flashes blue. When I power the laptop up, the battery icon flashes red and I get the low battery warning.


There are several possibilities. 1st and most probable is that the power module has failed, and by that it could have a wire broken in the part from the brick to the computer. It will then give just enough power to let the computer see it, but when i ... Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook
