Cara mematikan mode smart pada aspire3680


If this is about hard disk drive SMART (Self Monitoring) warning. Acer Aspire 3680 BIOS does not have an option to turn off this warning. Basically, your hard drive is dying and you need to replace it with a good working hard disk drive because sooner or later your hard disk drive will stop working. You can clone your hard disk drive using an hdd cloning utility such a Farstone Clone Drive.

The answer to this issue is your cpu, its a turion amd, basically it doesnt have the raw processing power required to render streams. there is no solution to this, other than replacing the laptop. AMD Turion II Ultra mobile processor M600 / 2.4 GHz just doesnt cut it, its not always about the clock speed, but how the unit processes data.

Clicking noise like sounds like a clock ticking wanna no how to stop it wen it typing aswell


The clicking noise is possibly the reader arm skipping across the platters on your hard drive a dirty hard first clean all of the dust from your computer using a fine air blower using a vacuum cleaner with no metal piping you might short your motherboard out if metal touches anything or a fine air blower from a compressor making sure there is no MOISTURE in the air line then give the hard drive a firm tap on one side to free up the read arm you could run the check disk utility Click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which willscan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive don't do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer it might be power or data trying to get a connection make sure all power and data leads are securely attached

if this fails you might have a dirty hard driver with the reader arm skipping across the platters on your hard drive


give the hard drive a firm tap on the side to free up the reader arm you might be able to get it going long enough to salvage your data or it might go for a longer time


or you might use the freeze hard drive

@rkbrown1_rb

If your Dell diagnostics shows no fault on the hardware (hdd, memory, chipset, videocard, etc.) but still same issue occurs, I recommend doing another test using a different utility. Try using Hiren's Boot CD that can be found here and try running the S&M Stress Test 1.9.1 and Video Memory Stress Test 1.7.116. If your computer hangs while doing the stress tests, the video card or CPU might be failing already.

Good Luck.

Hi:
Your hard drive is in dire trouble, and often you can still recover files from it sometimes. One suggestion is to buy a new hard drive, install your operating system on the new drive, and get your computer up and running, then install your old hard drive as a secondary slave hard drive and see if you can copy your files to your new hard drive.

Computer Freezes unless pressure applied


With the laptop turned off, take out the hard drive completely from the laptop and then reseat it back into its slot and make sure its nice and snug.

Then go ahead and turn it on and see it will run without freezing on you and having to apply pressure on the keyboard.

If that doesn't work then disconnect the keyboard and see if it will run smoothly without the keyboard. If it does then you might have a stuck key on the keyboard that is making the unit freeze so you might have to replace the keyboard.

HP Lattitude D600 Laptop freezes up


It could be a number of things. . Sometimes the unit will freeze when it overheats.. Have a look around the exhaust vents and see if there is excessive dust built up around there. If you notice any, you may have to take it in to get checked. If you are tech-saavy, then take it apart and clean out the CPU fan. Also make sure that there is good airflow around the vent when operating the unit.

If this is not the case, then you should take some notes to see if there is a trend when this happens. What sort of apps are running when it freezes at the 45 min mark. Is it only on battery? If so, its possible the battery is running out of juice and the software is not throwing the correct warnings - it just freezes the machine (this is exactly what my Asus EEEPC does to me when I let it run wayyy down on the battery - it freezes. However, it warns me a few minutes ahead of time). Try yours on AC and see if it has the same problem. If not, then its likely your battery. You may need to go in and tweak your power management settings to make sure that it warns you when the battery level is low.

problems will be with:-
1:- installed memory ( not enough or damaged memory module ) RAM

Solution:- remove 1 memory module from the computer ( located on the underside computer ) boot the computer. see if this helps. try changing memory between the 2 allocated slots.

Check the CPU Fan, is not clocked with dust/debris. ( Can be accessed by removing 2 screws on the underside or the laptop ) Marked with >> or similar. remove the fan, 3 small screws and brush with a soft dry paint brush or similar, remove any dust from fan and check for blockages.

run a scandisk or hard-drive checking program, to test hard-disk unit et,c.
