Is this a laptop or a desktop PC? The two common parts of a computer that make noise are the cooling fan(s) and the hard drive(s). Is the noise caused by air moving, like a hair dryer? or does it sound mechanical like a grinding noise?

Screeching sound-Honda eu2000i


Sounds like a bearing has failed or something has gotten inside the generator or engine area where it spins and is now rubbing against it. There is a bearing at the far end of the generator from the motor and it is most likely to be where the noise is coming from. Best to repair it before it seizes and wears out parts you don't want to have to try to find!

Try this using a differeent computer. Some computers generate a lot of digital noise. Also use a lot of gain from the guitar to improve the signal to noise ratio.

My fan makes so much noise especially when i play video.Can someone help


The problem with fans is there really isn't much you can do with them. Normally they begin to make noise as the bearing assembly begins to wear, or it might just need to be cleaned. In either case you need to crack open the case on your laptop, then you can inspect the fan. You can try cleaning it at that point, but usually its easier just to replace it. The reason why it makes more noise when you play videos is because video media requires more system resources to run, which also generates more heat. So, while you have your laptop open you may want to check your video card (which should also have a fan) and make sure that its clean. A dirty video card will **** out a lot earlier than it should.

Generator started, ran briefly, then stopped sending juice


Hi there,
crclarkphd has a problem that sounds like a brush failure. The clunking noise was likely the remainder of the failed brush getting knocked around inside the back end of the generator so you need to take it apart and inspect things closely. Here is a link to a general solution I posted some time ago that may be of help.

Guest jj has a fried breaker in one leg of the 220 outlet. Even though it doesn't look tripped it's failed, check it with an ohm meter.

Regards,
Carl

Hp compaq dc5000sff cpu fan sounds like a jet taking off


Not sure how long you have had the Desktop. However it will be one of two things. If it used to run quitely and now is making lots of noise then immediately take it to be replaced. Fans on power supplies cannot be fixed. If it should stop completely then the heat that builds up in your desktop could damage your components. Second, if it is fairly new and has always sounded that way then you are ok. Yes, there are some fans that are very loud, again you can have it replaced. They sell "quite fans" now that make no noise at all. But first and foremost if you start having problems like unusual reboots, lock ups, etc then your computer is getting overheated and the power supply which houses the fan needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.
