is the monitor making the clicking noise or your computer

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


hope this helps

  • Prepare to diagnose the computer .
    1. Disconnect all peripheral devices.
    2. Perform a Hard Reset.
    3. Disable the Automatic restart on system failure option.
  • Remove any non-system disc from the computer . During startup, the BIOS checks different devices to locate the Windows operating system. If the boot order is set to check the optical disc drive or the card reader (if the notebook is equipped with a card reader) before it checks the hard drive, and there is a non-system disc in the CD/DVD drive or there is a memory card in the card reader, the boot will fail. This problem can be resolved by setting the BIOS to check the hard drive first.
  • Reseat the memory modules . If you are getting memory errors, most BIOS versions have additional tests that can be run to test the memory. There could be a problem if one of the sticks is defective or loose in the memory slots. To determine what is causing the memory failure, disconnect all electrical power, and then remove and re-insert the memory modules firmly into the slots. Some HP Notebook PCs come with two sticks of memory and have two memory slots. On most notebooks, the memory module compartment is located on the bottom of the case, but the exact position varies by model. On some models, the memory compartment is under the keyboard. See your User Guide for the exact location of memory modules on your notebook.
  • Reset the BIOS to default condition . If you have made changes in the BIOS setting, such as disabling a device or changing the boot order, it could prevent the computer form starting properly. To restore the BIOS to its factory-recommended settings, turn on the computer and press f10 to access BIOS setup, and then press f9 to load the default BIOS configuration.
  • Perform a memory self test . There are different reasons that you may see a memory error. There could be a physical problem or it could be a program error. If the error is a program error, you will most likely see a Windows error message. If there is a physical problem with a memory module, the computer may fail part way through the boot process. Most computers have a built-in memory test to help identify if the memory modules are seated properly and are free of errors. To run the memory test, turn on the computer and press f2 .
    • If the System Diagnostics screen displays, select the Start-up Test to run the system memory test. Press the Esc key once the memory test is complete.
    • If the BIOS Diagnostics screen displays, select Memory Test .
  • Reseat the hard drive . If you get a specific hard drive error message on a black screen indicating the hard drive error, reseat the hard drive. If the computer has been dropped or jarred, or the hard drive has been replaced recently, the drive may not be seated tightly. The hard drive LED should blink if the hard drive has a solid connection in the notebook. Refer to the on-line User's Guide for specifics on locating and removing / replacing a hard drive. HP provides video directions for performing this task for many computer models. Remove and reseat the hard drive firmly into the mounting bracket.
  • Test the hard drive . If you get a hard drive error message, you can test the hard drive. Many computer problems are related to soft failures (or degraded performance) on the hard drive. The HP Hard Drive Self Test will repair soft errors on the hard drive, but it will not report the errors. After the test is complete, restart the computer to see if test repaired the problem you may been experiencing. To run the hard drive test, turn on the computer and press f2 .
    • If the System Diagnostics screen displays, select the Hard Disk Test to run the hard drive test. Allow the Quick and Long Hard Disk Self Tests to run.
    • If the BIOS Diagnostics screen displays, select Primary Hard Disk Self Test . Allow the Quick and Long Hard Disk Self Tests to run.

    Compaq presario sr1950nx monitor wont turn on the usual green indicating its on is now orange...tried to inspect the video cable and video connectors for damage its seems fine.....the hard drive is working...


    It sounds to me like the computer is coming on but not booting. That is, there's power but it isn't actually starting up, so no video ever gets to the monitor. Until there is a video signal from the computer (you're calling it the hard drive), the power light on the monitor will stay orange. Also, the power supply fan in the computer spins at maximum speed until the computer starts up, and that's likely what you're hearing that sounds so loud.

    Unplug the computer's power cable and remove the side panel. Make sure the memory modules are firmly seated in their sockets. This is a common cause for computers not booting. You can download the upgrading and servicing manual for this computer from HP's site here. This will give you all the instructions on how to open the case, where to find the memory and how to remove and reinstall it. Also be sure that all the internal cables are properly seated as well. Plug the computer back in and try restarting. Most of the time this will get you running again.

    If the computer still doesn't start, the most likely causes are motherboard failure or a power supply problem. Unless you have access to parts to substitute for testing, your best bet is to have a computer service shop check it out for you and give an estimate for repair.

    Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

    It's giving me a disk error... A disk error occurred press alt,ctrl, and delete to restart and when i do that some message pops up.


    There is a problem with your hard drive. Try taking the hard drive out, remove the battery, push the power button for approx. 10 seconds. Re-install the battery and re-install the hard drive. If the same message comes up again, try to boot the computer off a windows installation disc. If this all fails, you just may have lost your hard drive.

    Princeton Monitor is "out of range"


    Hi,
    The monitor is not getting a video signal. This is probably an issue with your computer. It could be a memory, hard drive or motherboard issue.

    Make sure you are getting power to the pc (fans running, hard drive spinning...etc). Then check your memory. Try switching memory slots, or try different memory.

    Turn on computer and see if you hear any bios beeps.

    Try a different hard drive if you have one.

    Good luck,
    Hank

    Virtual memory


    The topic of Virtual Memory can be confusing for some folks, but I'll try to explain it as best I can (starting with the basics).
    RAM, or, "Random Access Memory", exists in every computer. RAM are actually pieces of hardware (chips) and are used to store temporary data. The temporary data is then used for computation by the CPU (Central Processing Unit) at a later time.
    So, for example: when you double click to view a movie file on your computer, it is first loaded into RAM (a chunk at a time), then moved to the CPU (Central Processing Unit) where it is processed and decoded, and eventually output to the screen and sound card. And voila, you have your movie.
    RAM is also known as "Primary Memory". Comparatively, Virtual Memory (also known as Secondary Memory or Page Memory) is used in place of Primary Memory, but only if there is no Primary Memory available at the time.
    Since Virtual Memory is stored on the hard drive, it is significantly slower than RAM; therefore, virtual memory usage should be avoided whenever possible. To compare: hard drive speeds are measured in Milliseconds (MS) where as RAM speeds are measured in Nanoseconds (NS). Generally speaking, the more RAM a computer has, the faster, or "more optimized" it is -- especially when switching between tasks.
    If you are constantly getting the message that your system needs to increase Virtual Memory settings and you're not overworking the PC, I would suspect a memory leak. This is, of course, assuming that you haven't played with your virtual memory settings in Windows (it's best to leave it alone or restore to default).


    FIX
    look in Control Panel: System, Advanced, Performance, Settings, Advanced, Virtual Memory. I believe it's in a similar location in other versions of Windows.
