    The thing is my LCD monitor makes a clicking sound i have tried it on my son computer and it does the same it won't open only does the clicking sound and the power light flashes. I tried a other power cable and now my screen open when i plug it directly in the wall but the color is messed up.

    My power supply is a Antec smart power 2.0/450 watt this morning i saw that the back fan of my psu wasn't working but the one inside on my psu was working i found it kind of weird but then i went in the bios to check system health and cpu and motherboard temperature was ok.

    Some update: as for my power supply it all good it a dual fan design and I've read it normal that the external fan starts, stops and adjust it speed in response to system temperature, while the internal fan has a temperature sensor that regulates the fan speed.
    Thank again for your help =^_^=

May be the SMPS main power supply unit for PC is faulty. Also try to run a checkdisk for whole system hard disk.
Let me know the OS, firewall and antivirus installed on your PC - to get narrow down the problem and solve it.

    Yes, monitor are hard to repair and if the problem is internal such as clicking noise or color loss/mess-up, then it is better to go for a new one. You can email me if you need further assistance at techin.scott atthe gmail

My desktop computer will display anything when turned on, and the fan and hardrive both make a loud constant noise.

Maybe you need a larger power supply depending on if you might have added more hardware such as a graphics card, or an extra monitor to your system. This sometimes results in an inefficient supply of power, making your fan to your power supply work harder, thus making noise.

HP Pavilion Elite m9400f on button flashing, won't start up.

try and pull your add-on cards and reinstall them as well as your memory. make sure that the little switch on the PSU is set to 115v. The clicking sounds like the hard drive, but if you're not getting any error or picture then i don't think that's the case. blow the computer out with compress air, open up the pc and try and start it and make sure that all the fans are spinning.

Worked fine last night, discovered it this morning still turned on but no signal to monitor. Rebooted and it began a consistent beeping with no signal to monitor. Unplugged several times to no avail....

the beeping is coming from the cpu.

1 unplug pc
2 pull out ram chips
3 use an eraser to clean the gold, yes thats gold

what happens is the gold on the ram oxidizes and does not connect properly and can go bad but cleaning it with an eraser sometimes works. take a cpu that is working unplu it pull the ram and you will see the same thing your other pc is doing.

4 reinstall ram (correctly)
5 boot up cpu
6 please vote.

System starts up but goes to blank screen

This may happen due to several reasons. First, check if the power supply line to the monitor is loose at any of the two ends. If yes, tighten it. As a simple measure, keep that blank screen and tighten the codes to see if it works. If that is not the case, switch off your system and UNPLUG it. Then open up your CPU and clean all those dusts present there. Sometimes this problem can occur due to moisture present there. So wipe everything with dry cloth. CAUTION: DO NOT USE COTTON. USE ONLY A DRY CLOTH. Before closing down the CPU, take out the RAM(s), wipe it's tip with CLEAN COTTON slightly dipped in spirit (After Shave Lotion will do). Then put back the RAM(s) in position. This is not only to clean it, but also to make it a bit more seated. Now start up your system to check if it is OK. If none of this works, try re-installing the OS. This is a last measure and it can fix your problem, mostly.

Open case on dim.3000 cleaned out dust. Unit has

Try unplugging your video card and re-seating it. Sometimes, when they are cleaned, the card gets bumped and isn't quite seated right. If that doesn't work, try doing the same thing with your memory sticks.

C1641 intermittent beeps and won't start up

Is is possible that the RAM you put in was not sited properly. Just check it to see if it is right. You might need to troubleshoot by removing one peripheral at a time. Try removing the keyboard, and turn it on and see what happen. If same, mouse, network card, etc until you find the issue.

Will not Boot up

Make sure the fan area is clean, no dust. If it's still making noise when you boot up, get a new fan installed on the tower.
