Most likely it is the POST throttling up the fan to 100% during boot up. Then it switches over to ACPI(?) power manangement and Windows manages your fan speed to extend battery life.

Suggestions:
Go to Dell Support Site https://support.dell.com/support/supportrequests/create.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs
Download the latest BIOS updates and run it.

If it continues, try a can of compressed air, and breifly blow out any debris from the system fan. Bits of paper and critter-fur can get sucked up into the system.

EMachines eMD620 suddenly shutdown and not boot anymore


When this happened was the laptop overly hot? If the laptop's head got too high it could have shutdown to protect itself. It wouldn't boot until the heat had disparate. Sit you laptop aside for about 30 minutes and see if it will boot then. If it does you might want to check out a cool mat.

    Screen not displaying. and fun starts and stops, remains stand by when restarted the fun runs and stops stand by.


    hello there,

    I got the same problem but it came gradually...

    In fact for a full month when I first boot the computer, the fans runs, no extra beeps, the light blinked correctly but no bios at the screeen. I remarked also that the fans run full speed doing a lot of noise. Then I stopped the computer and wait 2 minutes and then it always works correclty at the second boot with the bios screen appearing. Also, the fan calm down after 1 second with less noise. So when I start the computer and hear that the fan calm down with less noise after 1 second, I know that the computer will boot correctly. That happens always at the second try after waiting 2 minutes. But since yesterday, the fans never calm down and the noise still remains high with no Bios at the screen. I'm suspecting the Power Supply...

    i hope my i dea can help you.

    My Toshiba Satellite 4010CDS Laptop never gets past boot. When I turn it on it goes to the Toshiba splash screen and never goes past that. The hard drive makes a lot of noise when I turn it on also. Thank...


    What OS are you running?
    Did you recently install a new app?
    Did you recently install a new hard drive?

    Try and do a system restore boot the computer in safe mode with networking to do this you:

    1. Turn on laptop
    2. While booting up press and hold F8
    3. Until you are brought to a boot up option page with different ways of booting up
    4. Click safe mode with networking
    5. When you do this computer will load and click system restore
    6. Restore computer to a previous date when it was working

    When I turn my computer on, I get a loud alarm


    I had the same problem - almost took it apart and tried to get to the HD, but then realized it was a stuck key.
    Try tapping the keyboard, maybe one key at a time, just to be sure that there isn't a key that the computer is registering as pressed. Then try rebooting.
    Hope that helps!

    Dell optiplex gx280 makes loud fan sound at startup and enters windows screen, but will not finish booting and freezes up.


    You may have a problem with your power supply(the loud fan noise) and eventually it may get too hot and will cause problems like not fully booting.
