Check if the wistle sound is coming from 3 important areas.

Is it coming from the speakers?
Is it coming from the cooling fan undereath the unit?
Or is it an internal sound like your Hard Drive?

If is coming from the speakers I suggest you to take your computer to a Technician to see whats causing it.

If is coming from the cooling fan, it could be that dust has piled up inside the PC, a great solution is to buy CANNED AIR or COMPRESSED AIR from a retail store like BEST BUY and blow that off carefully, just dont place the can upside down and try to do it while the LAP TOP is off.

If U suspect is coming from tha HARD DRIVE, I highly recomend that you transfer all your files to a external Hard Drive because you C:Drive is about to crash and you are most likely to loose everything.

Hope it helps.

    take the memory out and clean it, then reseat the memory, if you have more than 1 module, replace them 1 at a time to see if the whistling stops and the PC boots up

The sound most probably was a component burning. You will have to take to a repair shop for a diagnostic.

Good luck

Acer travelmate 2350 wont boot or display


I have seen this on several ACER Laptops. It is always the Motherboard. Contact Acer repairs and order a new motherboard. IT will likely be about $200ish dollars. Then follow one of the guides on the web for taking your laptop apart and replace the board.

No sound


First, open the control panel, go to the system tab, go to hardware tab, then device manager. Scroll down to the bottom of the box to where it says sound video and game controllers. See if you have any issues there. If you do, they will have yellow exclamation points or red x's. Check to ensure that the drivers are installed. If not, re-install the driver. If it says the component failed to start, try uninstalling and re-installing it. Hope that helps.

if your cdrom stops installing the operating system, then either the processor is damaged or the hard drive is faulty, as initially the installation files have to be installed to run the main O.S installation
