A dirty hard first clean all of the dust from your computer using a fine air blower using a vacuum cleaner with no metal piping you might short your motherboard out if metal touches anything or a fine air blower from a compressor making sure there is no MOISTURE in the air line then give the hard drive a firm tap on one side to free up the read arm you could run the check disk utility Click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r which willscan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors then defragment your hard drive don't do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail 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 something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error Make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free Restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard Check the vga lead for secure dust free connection or try another vga lead. Hope this helps.

EMachine e627 screen blank


I am assuming you have plugged the screen into a known working power source. You have pressed the 'on' button to turn the screen on and you have hooked up the screen to the back of the computer. What I need to know is if when you power up the computer if you see any text at all from the post AND if you see any lights on the front of the screen itself. (most all screens have lights on the front of them to tell you they are turned on, and most of the time the light is green). If the screen is on but is getting an orange or amber light that means something. Also if you see text or something on the screen initially but not in windows then it could be a resolution or driver issue.

My monitor suddenly lost signal and hasn't returned


do you mean the processor fan that is located near on the left top corner on the motherboard? if that stopped working then turn of your pc immediately. probably the cpu overheated. if that fan does not work replace it immediately as it will burn the cpu.

When I turn it on, only the fans run. I cannot hear the hard drive run and the hard drive light on the bezel is solid yellow


look on bios to see if detects the hard drive ...if does not boot to windows...the hard disk has no reason to go on ....and the issues could be many ....check the Ram memory if do not appear anything on screen at all ...and just runs the coolers and clicks without boot at all...in this case its the Ram memory ...so check it ...get it out ..put it back ...and remove the bios battery to force it see them again .....if it is booting until the operating system should appear ...and after that nothing ...reinstall ...
Also .....if there is anything written on the screen ..read carefully ..usually it will say whats wrong ...and advise in same issues..like replace hdd ...or files missing ...or blue screen error from memory issues..

Louder whirring noise when turning on computer


trumpjd,
Usually on startup the fans work a little harder then slow down. On newer computers they still have noticable fan noise. Most of what ou hear while the machine is running after start up is the power supply fan. When it starts to go bad you'll hear it all the time.
