Cleaned all pulleys with brake clean or similar before putting new parts on? Did you try spinning all pulleys by hand when belt(s) were off, to see if any have a fair bit of resistance? Sometimes worn bearings in alternator will make similar sound, so rotate it by hand, while applying a little pressure up and down, side to side to see if bearing feels rough at all, as it should feel smooth . Make sure also that you don't have any oil leaks, or small coolant leaks that may be dripping on a pulley or the belt. I have also found (just my experience) that those notched belts, rather than complete groove all the way around, will do that to me sometimes.

Changing serpentine belt on 2000 chevy silverado 1500 4.8 v8

The belt has tension applied to it from an idler pulley arm. you need to release tension by using a socket and ratchet on the nut on the idler pulley. Release tesion and slide belt off . Make sure you have the diagram for serpentine belt. it is usualy under the hood. If not make a diagram yorself before removing belt.

I can't stop the squeak on my 8.1l chevy 2500hd.

There is a pulley out of alignment. Only 1/8th inch out will cause a serpentine to sqeak.

Replaced the power steering pully on my 2000 chevy silverado and the ****** is still squeaking. what do i do now?

Most of the time the squeaking is from a worn or low quality belt. Try getting a better belt from a name brand manufacturer.

I believe I had a pulley fall on that the serpentine belt goes on. The car is a 2000 chevy silverado. The belt is real loose and when I checked it seems there is no pulley on the passenger side at the top....

Sounds like you tesioner failed look for an arm that might have had a pulley on it if it has a 1/2 or 3/8 square hole in it your tensioner lost its pulley. they are available at parts stores and are pretty easy to replace just be sure to double check the belt diagram under the hood to be sure everything is in place.
