Dell leptop 5030 without heat sudenly shut down

Apparently seems like your laptop is facing heating problem & its because your cooling system including fan inst working properly. You need to check if your fan is running at adequate speed and also there aren't any dust particles stuck in head sink on either side of your laptop. All you need to do is just to use an air blower and clean the fins of your heat sinks to make the air flow properly. Good Luck

I hear a sound from my notebook like a switch that some times every 10 second open and close?

The switch sound is because of heating of the motherboard and the internal hardware of the laptop.
You need to clean the laptop properly and another possibility could be that your laptop cpu fan is not working well. Try downloading a Speed fan utility to make it work well.

Take the computer to a qualified technician, for professional trouble-shooting (failing bearings in a cooling-fan, or a disk-drive about to die).

Compac Presario F700 makes constant humming noise

Sounds like its the fan . The more demand you place on the system makes it run hotter so the fan speed automatically increases to compensate

dear sir,
this types of problem come from the sound section of the laptop motherboard. your laptop contains sterio sound system. problem is one channel of the sound circuit faulty. but it is too dificult to repare it.
u can do one think, u can stop one channel sound by using sound balancing option from the task bar volume control option.
also u can contact with Acer service centre.

Humming when computer runs

This is usually caused by fluff bunnies etc nesting inside the laptop.

The outcome from this is that quite often the laptop will overheat which in turn usually causes the fan to work harder. This can lead to failure of the laptop. You could try a can of compressed air designed for blowing out computers and see what comes out of the ventilation slots. DONT just give it little squirts, you really want the air to blow as much as you can without sticking anything inside the laptop of course !!

Some laptops are especially bad with dirt / dust build up.

If you feel unsure take it to your local repair shop for a good clean out.

Humming noise on HP Pavilion dv9000

I have a dv6000 and its makes a insect tlike noise. i returned it and  got another one but that one also made the same noise. so i contacted hp and they told me that the sound is coming from the USB ports, i thought wierd but here is the solution to your problem. go to computer managment (start>right click my computer> manage), click on device manager, select the universal serial bus contollers ( there should be a few roots files that open up), right click a usb root hub and select properties, click the power managment tab, and uncheck "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". do this for every USB root hub that you have, and the problem should go away. FYI these instructions are for windows XP.
