Question about Dell A425 Computer Speakers
I own a Dell pentium 4 processor 520 (Dimension 4700 series) with 2.8ghz that has been putting out horrible static through the speakers. I've tried unplugging and rebooting and I believe it's the subwoofer. A friend recently gave me a pair of speakers (harman/kardon) to try. Do I need a subwoofer to go with these speakers? My computer came with speakers attached to a subwoofer.
I need help!!!
I reversed my fan last night, and I believe it solved the static problem. Only time will tell, I suppose. When I first used the computer after flipping the fan, both fans suddenly were extremely loud and noisy and rattling. But now that I have had my computer running for about an hour or so, they got quieter and quieter and now are completely silent. (I can still feel the air blowing though). I suppose it realized that it wasn't going to overheat anymore and didn't have to run the fans so hard!
I consider my problem solved. I'll be back if it changes, but so far I highly recommend flipping the fan to run the other way. It was really very simple to do once I understood how to disconnect and reconnect all the parts! If anyone needs step by step instructions and they can't find them, please email me at timm100 [at] mail [dot] chapman [dot] edu. I am very new to this whole internal computer thing myself, so I know how confusing it can be!
