If it says that the hard drive is not detected, then most probably its a busted hard drive. I doubt it's a motherboard issue since it was able to tell you that it can't find a hard drive. Plus the fact that there are spinning noises which can only come from either the hard drive or the fans.

I have a HPDV9000 Laptop and it is making a terrible loud noice, very annoying. Starts when turned on. What can it be. Thank you.


More than likely it's one of the cooling fans. They spin at relatively high RPM and if they're damaged they can emit a loud whirring or screeching noise. If it's a clicking noise then it could be your hard drive failing.

If it is a really loud noise that drives you out of the house then probably a bad bearing. If that is the case then time for a new machine. Also check for something caught between the tubs.

My acer wont load when i first turn on, or load,gives 2 loud beep


Sounds like the hard drive is going bad. Take out the hard drive and see if the laptop behaves like that if it doesn't then you know the hard drive is bad. If it still does then it could be a motherboard problem.. With it making those beeping noises when you first turn it on, they keyboard could be going bad because that would make a laptop start beeping like that as well.

Loud Whining Noise from Motherboard on Startup


Whining noise is something in motion or moving.Does the graphics card have a onboard fan?Is it clean and free moving.

How about the processor fan? clean,free from wires or anything hitting it.?

Disconnect hard drive and see if you get the sound.

Acer aspire4920 makes loud noise at start up


This could be caused by the harddrive. There might be a bad bearing or something. Please backup all your data. You will probably have to replace the hard drive sooner or later.

Im having serious probs here


first, ensure that only one master hard drive is connected (also disconnect cdrom(s). Next, at startup press the key (DEL or F2) to BIOS screen. then make sure that only the master hard drive in position 1 is listed or choose AUTO detect. now reboot and report if any progress. If no further progress, then master hard drive has failed somehow, but to be certain, try that drive on another pc as a slave just to test spin-up.
