Hello. I was listening to the video and was listening to the beeping. That is usually a POST code that tells you what to look for. I am giving you a link to check the beep sequence to check a couple things. http://www.bioscentral.com/postcodes/dellbios.htm#. Usually If any cards, Video, audio, etc or memory are not seated properly, you can get this situation. Make sure the CPU fan is clean and the contacts are good to the motherboard. Some systems use a 3 wire plug. Hot, Ground and SENSOR. If the Sensor wire is not read, the CMOS will not let the system start either. This is to protect the CPU from overheating and cooking itself. These are a couple of things to look into. Hope this helps. Please let us know how it goes!

SOURCE: Loud noise

Typical problem in most computers, the fan is experiencing a "burn out." This means there is either something caught in the fan causing it to create noise, or the motor is going bad. there are two fixes for this problem.
1) open you computer's case according to its manual and remove the system cooling fan and give it a thorough cleaning.
2) you may need to replace the cooling fan with its recommended replacement model.

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Won't boot up, Fans are on non-stop

Open up the pc with power off. After cleaning with a blowing or sucking device, gently press on the connections and plug-in devices. Retry.

If no avail, the power supply or the motherboard may have bit the dust. U can get them repaired or replaced.... or save the HD and buy a another pc and add the old HD as a data disk.

SOURCE: MY IQON TOWER DRIVE IS MAKING A LOUD NOISE LIKE FAN WORKING OVE

Probably just needs replaced. Sometimes one can clean it and it will last a little longer. It's an easy job to replace it. Just download the manual for your model from the maufacturer's website to see how to gain access to the inside of the computer. Replacement fans are available at places like CompUSA or similar stores, or you can order one on the internet. Just take the existing fan out of the case and take it to the store with you to be sure you get the right one. Take care about static electricity, as it can zap your components, especially the motherboard and the memory sticks. Touch the computer case before touching any parts inside the computer.

If you don't feel comfortable changing the fan out, a computer repair place can probably do it for not much.

SOURCE: Tower fan runs fast without stopping

either your computer is running too hot (clean it out physically, or clean out viruses) OR the fan is failing, and it sounds louder and faster cause the bad fan bearings are making that noise.

My samsung fridge/freezer is only 3 years old, just started making loud noise, then when the fridge is opened sounds like the fan making a loud noise that goes down and stops. Then not long after that...


Compressors usually make a thrumming/humming noise, so yes, this sounds like the fan. It could be something touching the fan blades, like ice or a wire. If you can unplug the fridge and remove panels near the fan, you may discover the problem.

DELL 8400 MAKES A LOUD FAN NOISE AND WONT BOOT


There are 2 basic fans in Dell tower one for the power supply and the other for the Processor. If your computer is not booting then the Processor fan is most likely to be the culprit. What could be happening is that the Processor fan is no longer turning fast enough to cool the processor, so normal the processor when it over heats there is either protection to switch off the computer automatically or the computer won't boot. The best thing is to change the fan and make sure it is working properly but checking on the cables that they won't entangle on top of the fan to impede it's movement. You can easily damage your processor if the fan is not working properly.

My fan makes a loud squealing noise upon starting


open the tower if you can and check if some obstruction of wire is there or not. caution turn of the pwr before doing that . if no obstruction then the fan has to be replaced. open the fan carefully take it to best buy or wallmart and get it replaced.
it is possible for the older computer that the fan goes bad or moves faster than its normal speed . its a common problem with all brands of computer.

2007 dodge ram 4.4 beeps when i press the brake pedal but the tail light is out on the left side also. And when you turn on the left blinker it goes crazy fast and no light in the light assembly. Help?


If you have a beebing noise every time you press on the brake, it is because a tail light is burnt out. There are two filaments in each brake light. Therefore, when you turn on your hazards, it will appear that both tail lights work properly. The beebing warning sound is actually a feature that Dodge put in the Rams so drivers would know their tale light is out. Just replace the tail light bulb, and the beebing will automatically cease. To get the tail light housing out, you will need a torex screw driver. Also, you twist the bulb housing out as opposed to pulling it out. There are three prongs that twist out.

Loud racing noise from the tower e 3052


Open up the side of the tower and you will be able to see the fans. You most likely have dust/hair in one of your fans or one of the fans is going bad. You can clean it out with a low pressure air nozzle or dust can.

Cooling fan


Yes. It can be replaced. Try to check which fan is making that sound. Do you have a laptop or a PC? On a PC, there are 3 standard fans inside it. one for the CPU, one for the power supply and one for the computer casing fan as well. It depends on which of those fans it's coming from. On a laptop, some laptops' fans actually makes a loud noise which is common but there is a way that it could be lessened but it might slow down your pc and it might overheat it as well. The loud noise on the fans of a laptop actually indicates that it's trying to cool down the system. If it doesn't stop the loud noise, it could indicate a problem switching the fans back to normal and would just continue to spin fast. Try to contact your PC tech for further diagnostics on the laptops fan to indicate if the problem is with the fan or the mainboard as well.
