I downloaded bing the other day because my windows update suggested it. Well, The Bing desktop is smaller than my screen! I want to fix the desk top, so it's the same size as my computer screen. Right now...


Go in control panel click on Add or remove programs or programs and features Look for Bing Desktop or something like that. And double click it to uninstall.After the uninstall is done reboot the computer then it should be gone.

Noise from fan in modem


Hi'

Normally dust gets caught up in the fan you can try blowing it out to free the dust or the bearings are getting worn and the fan needs to be replaced.

You can by silent fans for desk top pcs as well.

Katherine,

Many times when a desktop is making a strange buzzing noise - it is due to a fan malfunction of some sort. Other reasons include a power supply that is faulty or possibly a bad internal speaker.

I would first check the fan(s) for the computer. Start by turning the computer off all of the way. Next, unplug the cords from the unit. You'll need to isolate just the computer tower itself. Next, you'll want to get some compressed air or a vaccuum and gently clean out the areas where the system case fan vents are. If you know how to open the case for your desktop, it wouldn't be a bad idea to make a quick visual check inside of the case for things that may be caught in the fans. Some desktops open via screws on the back plane, and some open with a pull tab/lever.

If cleaning out the dust doesn't resolve the buzzing noise - then you'll need to make sure that the noise is not part of the electronics. If you are hearing an actual electrical buzz and not a speaker or fan noise, then there is likely a larger problem with the computer. In that case - I would take the computer to a certified professional for diagnosis.

Another culprit of buzzing noise may be a CD/DVD drive with a disk stuck in it. Make sure that you have ejected the drive to ensure no disk is stuck in the drive.

I hope this information helps!

Fan/ engine whining sound


If the fan is only making wind noise it is ok. If it is making matalic noise replace fan. It would be a good idea to clean (blow)out the dust and dirt for the inside of the computer at this time.

Transfering my outlook and emails folders from my old desk to my new acer desk top


No because outlook is an installed program in your older computer so you can't transfer install programs from one hard drive to the next.

Buzzing/humming noise in my computer's power supply


I wouldn't recommend leaving your PC on all the time but don't think this should have harmed your new power supply. The power supply may be faulty so try speaking to the store you bought it in to try another one. Alternatively, I would try moving your PC to a very well ventilated area at your desk to see if this helps.

The only sure way to quiet it down is to replace the hard drives with newer ones, that you have selected based on their noise rating, AND to replace all the fans in the machine with fans that you have selected based on their noise rating. I did this for my self-built machine last year and never regretted spending the money on new drives and new fans. It's SO much quieter! ;)
