    I have a Lenovo 3000 n100 using Windows XP Home Edition SP2.

    I when the system powers up it gets to the Windows logo screen and starts a LOUD steady squealing noise. I removed the battery, same result, changed power supply, same result. Tried it on just batter, same result. I reseated the hard drive, same result.

    Any ideas?

Bear tracker squealing noise when trying to start after running it goes away help please it sat for a year before got rear end fixed

Joe, do you mean a bearing track?
If so, a bearing -or track - usually makes a grinding or knocking noise, not a squealing noise.

If a car stands for a long time the brake rotors can corrode a bit and the pads can stick. Sometimes, when the car is first used after standing, you may hear a rubbing or squealing noise from the wheel. That's the pads sticking to a rusty rotor. The noise may wear off after a few miles when the pads 'polish' the corrosion off the rotor.

The other thing that causes squealing from a wheel are the brake shims. Try cleaning things first.

Loud squealing noise

The noise is most likely the serpentine belt. Check it's condition and that of the belt tensioner. It sounds like the belt is slipping, causing the squealing noise u describe. As the belt warms up, it's getting a better 'grip' and the noise stops. Turning on the heat also turns on the a/c in newer cars, this added drag on the belt (one more component to turn, the a/c compressor) would explain why it happens when u turn on the heat. Is the belt original? If yes, it's time to change it, and check the belt tensioner to make sure it's doing it's job of keeping the belt snug on all the pulleys. Let me know how u make out.

Dictaphone 2710 noise problem

This squealing noise is caused by the capstan motor. The bearings have dried up and it's metal on metal - causing an awful squealing noise. As soon as you put in a cassette, the motor begins to spin - causing the squealing noise.
