Clicking Hard drive
When a hard disk makes a clicking sound and the computer does not detect it then the hard disk is faulty. This is commonly known as "The click of death".
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.
You need to replace the hard disk and install Windows and your programs to get a working computer again.

Asus eee boxpc ar5b95 clicking sound will not power up why


At this point, you need to contact ASUS by going to their web site, or calling their toll-free number, if you have it. They are going to have to provide assistance on this. Hopefully, this laptop is still under warranty.

Otherwise, maybe someone else here can give you a better idea of how to solve this problem.

Hi po bkit ayaw po mg sound sa speaker


Most laptops have two different sound drivers. Check your manufacturer for correct drivers. Reboot and retest! Check that you are using HD and not the digital sound system by checking your sound properties in control panel - change it to the correct one. Check that someone did not mute the sound, click the icon and check. Try different speakers, powered versus non-powered to see if there is a difference in quality.

The sound on my toshiba satellite c655 s5068 laptop does not work after sleeping.


You may try this; Turn OFF the laptop, remove the power sources (ac adapter and battery). Without power sources, hold power button 10 secs. Put back the power sources, and power ON the NB. If same thing happened, uninstall and reinstall the audio driver. Go to start/type device manager in search box/click sound video and game controller/uninstall the audio driver and restart the laptop to take effect. Once the laptop booted up wait for the message that the device driver is successfully installed or check if the audio driver is back in the device manager. Then test the sound.

Screen is dark like it is on the battery but it is fully charged and plugged in.[tried Fn and up it works too.


If the windows sound comes then this is the issue with either screen or inverter board or display cable.
If windows sound also not there then refix the RAM or change it.

Thanks.

HP Pavillion dv9700 won't power up


Try removing the battery and using only power cord to turn the laptop on. If that fails, try turning it on without power cord, just on battery.

If none of those work, then most probable cause of your problem is motherboard. Hopefuly you are either under manufacturer warranty or you have extended warranty with your vendor where you've purchased the laptop.

If your laptop turns on on power cord, but without battery, then battery is the problem. Also, if laptop turns on when it's only on battery but it doesn't when you plug ac cord in it, then the adapter is the problem.

Hi suddenly my sound is not working in my newly bought laptop model is compaq presario cq 40 newly bought


Try this:

Shut down the laptop, disconnect anything plugged into it, remove the battery and hold down the power switch for 15 seconds (with no power or anything attached to laptop).

Reconnect A/C power and power it back up. See if that works for you.

If not, when you get booted into Window, go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click on System Restore.

Follow the prompts and choose a bold date back to a time prior to when you lost sound. When it reboots, you will probably have sound.

Let me know if you need further help.

System sound not working on Dell Inspirion 6000 laptop


There are two sides of the problem. Hardware and software. To check whether the hardware is defective:

Try running the Pre-boot System Assessment (PSA):
1. Shutdown system
2. Press and hold on the "Fn" key.
3. Press the power button to turn the system on while holding on the "Fn" key.
4. Run the PSA until you get to the "colored bars". Then press "N" to say no.
5. Should you hear the beep codes, that means that the sound card is working fine. If you don't hear anything, then you need to replace your motherboard.

Now if your hear beeps that means that there's something wrong with the driver and audio settings. Do the following:

1. Right-click on My Computer then click on Properties
2. Click on Hardware then Device Manager
3. Click on the (+) beside Sound and Audio Devices
4. Right click on Sigmatel then click "Uninstall".
5. Go to support.dell.com
6. Click on Drivers and Downloads
7. Enter the Service Tag of your system (found at the bottom of your laptop)
8. Then download the audio driver. Just save it on your desktop first.
9. Restart the computer.
10. Install the driver.
11. Go to Control Panel -> Sounds and audio
12. Make sure that Sigmatel is the default sound device.

Please rate this solution if this helps.

Thanks,
