Toshiba laptop is slow and keeps making strange noises!

My toshiba laptop is running very slowly and keeps making strange noises. it beeps all the time and keeps lengthing noises e.g. the windows startup noise last nearly 10 seconds as opposed to 3 or 4. also the touchpad is not functioning properly as the pointer is very jerky on the screen. i have taken it to the tech guys at pc world who have said that it is a problem with the cd/dvd drive but it still reads fine and i cant see how that would affect the computer so much. i think it might be the hard disk thats the problem. any ideas please. thanks.

When any portion of the electronic package begins or is failing it can very well cause other problems. The different sections of your laptop all share power supply lines, cpu freq lines and memory lines. I agree that the hard drive could also be a culprit. Now you'll need to determine if this is an actual hard drive physical problem or is it virus' and spyware playing with the operating system. Is this what you paid that company to do? If so I'd be back there is a minute. What are the beep codes you're hearing?

My laptop make unusual sound while ruuning and it again stops for some time and again makes it.

It's probably the fan. The fan will come on and go off as needed. Also, sometimes the fan and hard drive can make noises.

Toshiba Satellite a70-s256 fan issues

Instead, turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air.
Give your computer a "blow-job", to remove all the dust that has accumulated inside your computer.
The dust has been acting as "insulation", forcing the fans to run faster, and with more noise.

Cooler computer -> quieter computer.

Makes strange noises & it is coming from the hard drive location. is taking too long to start & to operate.

If the noises are coming from the hard drive, these sounds usually mean the hard drive is getting ready to give out. These noises are generated by the read/write arm dragging across the platers that are inside or the platter spindle bearing is going out. There is no way to repair them. This will also cause the computer to operate more slowly as the computer must put together the pieces of information it needs to operate. I would recommend backing up all information before it fails then replacing the hard drive.

I have a Toshiba Satellite M55-S325 Laptop. When I turn on the power it makes a series of beeping noises, and will not start up.

Depending upon your BIOS this beep error code could mean you have faulty RAM modules. Reseat your RAM modules, to make sure they make proper connection. If this doesn't work take them to your friendly computer shop and ask them to test them for you.

Motor bussing sound system slow

have a look at the fan on the processor if its running slow it will be making that noise so your processor is over heating and in turn making your pc run slow. replace this fan now. if your processor overheats too much it will burn out.
