The murmuring sound is in all probability a Hard Drive noise... I had a similar problem and the solution lies in the BIOS.. at startup press F2 or the Del key to load into BIOS... in Bios you will need to look you way to an option for the HDD devices.. In my BIOS I had a option for an acoustic quiet mode which stopped the sound eminating from my hard drive

Note that all BIOS versions are different... If this does not solve the issue then please post the make of your laptop along with the BIOS version

    Mate it seems that either your hard drive is at its last stage or the only other reason might be a intricate component failure in which case you first need to back up all your data just to be safe n then proceed to troubleshooting but it is difficult to go forward without knowing the laptop make or model so please post what company is ur laptop n what is the model number...

Dell studio 1745 wont boot

Look like you might have a display problem...
It is hard to see if you do not have any image on the laptop
If you have another monitor try plugging it in the out display port of the computer to see if you have a visual display on it

My laptop Dell Inspiron 1545 giving a hard disk drive error. Laptop works normal but sometimes it start producing a sound like tik,tik,tik......... then blue screen appears and when i run diagnostic it...

Its time you backup your data and contact Dell to get your hard drive replaced (in case your computer is in warranty) else order for a new hard drive compatible with your computer.

You will need your Windows CD that came with your computer, if you did not get it contact Dell about the same.

The disk-drive has malfunctioned.

Search online for a professional "data recovery service".
For a significant fee, they can repair your disk-drive,
just long-enough to copy your files to a new disk-drive.

If it still has a valid WARRANTY, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

If the warranty has expired, then open the case, remove the disk-drive, buy a new "compatible" disk-drive, connect it, and thus "revive" your external storage device.

My compaq presario do not start, instead it make two sounds like a beep and then nothing, what coulds happen. it is the mother board or is the hard disk?

It is from the mother board which means that there will be some errors on the motherboard ,if the booting is not done in proper way then .The mother board produces beep sounds. better re-install the operating system first , then check that the sound is producing or not , else better contact a compaq service center. they will be able to fix it for you.

My laptop is still producing tghe murmuring sound

The Type of sound you mention can really be only two things, either it's a fan that's loose, or on the way out. Or vibration caused by something that is loose either inside or out. Do a cursory check by applying a small amount of preassure, "just the weight of your hand should be enough", Over the laptop while it's running, paying particulsr attention to the hinge area and the area around the perimiter of the nootebook. If it stops, there may be a loose fitting or screw someware. If it's internal you would do better if you let the manufacturer look at it. The bios should not have anything to do with it as noise is an indication of vibration, or a bad component inside.
