    Yeah, Hi,

    My Sony Vaio VGN-FS980, when starting up sounds like someone is rapidly vibrating the music during start up, and while using iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc... So when i uninstall my DVD drive, the same one that came with it, everything sounds fine, but when i took my computer in to get repaired, they said there was nothing wrong with the drive, so I'm wondering what's wrong with my PC. I really like it, and don't want to get rid of it. But I don't want this problem any more.

    Yes, I too have this problem. With me it happens every once in a while and will not be fixed unless I do a system restore from safe mode. Until then, it will take an extremely long time to start up, and the audio is GREATLY stretched and distorted because of this slowness, which does not go away. No one seems to have the solution to this, it is NOT the startup items, nor is it viruses/spyware. I personally think it's a defect in this series.

Firstly, your startup is slow more than likely because you have too many unecassary programmes running on start up, so download the excellent free ccleaner programme from the link below and analyse the system and run a clean up and also click the tools tab and startup tab, here you will see all the programmes running on satrtup, you can delete them in this programme from the startup, althogh this doesnt delete the entire programme, only the start up. http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ the noise from the audio files needs to be explained a little better, unless you mean the vibration from the dvd drive, if so this is common on some drives when they have difficulty reading files, or if you mean files that are on your pc are causing vibrations, the only thing i can think is that maybe your onboard mic volume or boost is set too high and is picking up the sound and reverbing.

Humming noise, then why did it stop after it was filled with clothes/water?


the noise could be a frequency vibration from the motor wanting to run but couldn't because the start /run capacitor has failed
frequency vibrations are also present if either of the water control solenoids are failing
get a service technician in to check it all out

Whynter Portable Air Conditioner Model: ARC-14S. Problem: It sounded as if something fell inside the unit while it was operating (cooling) then it started to vibrate horribly. The vibration is only...


Hi,Whynter Portable Air Conditioner has many moving parts, and they all make noise and cause vibrations. Some of these parts are more likely to causing shaking and loud noises, and sometimes this signals a larger problem, something to watch and scrutinize. If serious enough, it calls for a repair.

Loose Parts

Loose parts cause the majority of shaking and vibration noises in your air conditioner. A few of the most common loose parts include the air compressor, the piston rods and even the fan or blower unit itself. These noises are clunking, clanking sounds that occur along with a vibrating action. The only method of repair is a complete compressor replacement, which is a repair only a certified air conditioner technician is qualified to make. The compressor is a fully sealed component, so individual parts in the compressor cannot be repaired.

Fan Blades

Fan blades cause noise, shaking and vibrations even when properly secured. If fan blades contact the exterior structure of the air conditioner due to a bent fan blade or broken and misaligned grate, a constant, repetitive noise and vibration results, which sounds like a ticking or banging from the interior of the air conditioner. Vibration in this case is limited but still present.

Mounting Brackets

When an air conditioner shakes, there is a problem with the mounting brackets. These brackets hold the air conditioner compressor steady as it operates. Normal vibrations and shaking would otherwise occur without these brackets. A loose mounting bracket causes the air conditioner to rock back and forth and creates a clanking sound. As the compressor starts up, this rocking and clanking sound begins, resulting in a very loud and fast vibration and noise. It also occurs when the unit shuts down.

Other Sounds and Vibrations

Sometimes air conditioners squeal, hiss, hum or screech. Each noise is often accompanied by a vibration. Humming sounds along with a vibration may indicate a bad capacitor, the electrical part responsible for starting the machine. Hissing sounds tend to indicate a pressure problem while screeching and squealing sounds are fairly common in window air conditioners and in central air conditioners. This sound is also a result of the compressor motor. It usually starts when the unit turns on and continues through its normal operating cycle. Vibrations always occur in the air conditioner due to moving parts and the compressor motor's operation.


Hope it helped..

NO. Have you checked if he installed an anti vibration pads. This is because the high frequency vibrations caused by the spin cycle can cause annoying noise and very serious long term structural damage to you home.

Very noisy and loud vibrations on spin cycle of Frigidaire FTF2140FS front load washing machine


Is it just during the spin cycle that it machine is noisy or the noise is less during the wash cycle? Also is the noise a thumping type of noise or is it more of a whining or steady noise? If is a whining noise, it probally means that water has seeped past the seal and corroded the bearing of the washer. The noise is the failing bearing.

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. Alot of times the coil gets plugged and then it makes the fan and compressor work harder so a good coil cleaning should get the amps on the unit to come down.

LG front leader washing machine;high pitch vibration during spin, the house is vibrating with it, we can feel it at the other end of the house, any fix?


You can buy rubber pads at the home center that damper the vibrations.
The high pitch noise could be an object stuck between tubs.

MAYTAG Wahing machine model MAV6000AWQ


I believe your machine is equipped with a "snubber plate" under the transmission. A lot of Maytag top-loaders are. This is a white teflon ring that is used as the wash tub and transmission support and assists in dampening vibrations during the spin cycles. It's located on the inside case of the machine under your transmission. When the snubber goes bad they generally start to squeak. They cannot be lubricated and must be replaced. If you try to oil them, they will eventually disintegrate. The snubber costs less than $10 to purchase. I hope this helps.
