    Could you count the beeps and tell me if they are short or long?

    Describe what the screen does when you get this error.

    Is it Blank?

One long steady beep means that either your power supply, system board (motherboard) or keyboard are no good. Since you said you unplugged the keyboard and got the same result aswell as the comment about the fan starting I can only assume that your motherboard is damaged, in which case I suggest you buy a new computer because the price you pay for a motherboard and service fees you could buy a new computer (or close to it). Before you do that though, you should replace the power supply first than if that doesn't work, exercise your options of replacing the motherboard vs. buy a new computer.
Let me know how you made out. Good luck.

Samsung HLS5086WX/XAA made popping noise and shut off, then made whirring noise.


When my TV did this in the past it ended up being the color wheel. I had someone replace it and it worked fine. I asked it if had to be calibrated after it is installed and he said no. Also make sure the door switch is pushed down when you install the back bulb door. Sometimes this switch can go bad as well.

Loud knocking/banging inside dash/glovebox


We had the same issue on our 2009 Flex. The problem was the motor or the gate (I can't remember which) that switches where the air comes out for the climate control. Took it to the dealer and had it replaced under warranty. It didn't take long (maybe 30min - 1hr).

It seemed like the system had a built-in fail safe that shut the motor down after a few seconds when the gate didn't make it to the desired selection. If you change the blower around when the fan is running (e.g. switch from floor to bi to dash to defrost), you'll probably hear the thumping come back as the gate tries to move, but can't.

Loud high pitched squeel through speakers and will not boot-up either from my Acer 4150LMi


Run the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

My Dell XPS M 15so will not start


If you have the installation discs I'd suggest booting into them or the recovery partition by pressing F12 and either selecting CD/DVD ROM or Recovery Partition.

Once in there make sure to select Repair your Installation by pressing R and continue once you get into the Command Prompt to run a check disk scan. To do this simply type chkdsk /r. This will compare the Windows files on your system with the files on the disc to ensure they are the same and not corrupted.

After that upon reboot you should be able to boot. Good luck!

New to expresso machine - Cuisinart EM100c


This is a very loud machine. Here's the normal operation: You turn it on, and wait a few minutes for it to heat up, at which point the heating light will go off. Then make sure the function knob is turned to coffee, and it will start brewing. At first, it will make a short (loud) sound and then stop for a second. The purpose behind this is that the machine is pre-wetting the coffee, so that steam can more easily shoot through it in a couple of seconds. Then the loud noise will start again and run continuously until you turn the function knob back to the center. So, the sounds you were hearing were normal. There is a delay between when you hear the sounds and the water starts flowing out. If the coffee is pressed down (tamped) too hard, that delay will be longer. Hope this helps. You made a much better choice purchasing this machine rather than the more expensive EM-200, in my opinion.

Subwoofer makes a loud bass machine gun noise when powered up


Well, I have the same problem and I would think it has something to do with the RCA-connections. If I power up my head unit while I have my main fuse for the amp's removed and then replace the fuse as the head unit is already playing music (thus putting out a current through the RCA-connections) it works just fine. But if I just power up my stereo with the fuse in, my subs go all crazy. I guess it has something to do with disruptions in the rca cable. Maybe they are drawn too close to some power cables or speaker cables? Good luck!

Hearing noise while switching on/off


Monitor clicks, pops, or makes other noises. Noise when turned on or off. It is normal for standard computer CRT .


How can I make my computer quieter? If your power supply has a power switch on it, you can easily determine how much noise your power supply generates by disconnecting it from the motherboard.

Good Luck, Read and follow instructions/Please dont for get to Vote/Thank You.
