Wont boot and clicking noice

A clicking noise usually indicates a bad hard drive. Any eMachine is now very old (in computer years), with an obsolete operating system.

You should consider replacing rather than repairing.

How to Reduce the Noise of Your CPU Fan

The CPU fan is what keeps the processor of your computer cool while the machine is running. A noisy fan on the CPU can be very annoying for users of the computer. However, it can also be a sign of a dangerous problem in your system. If the CPU fan is making noise, it is probably not running at full capacity to cool the processor, which leaves your computer open to problems involving overheating of the processor. An overheated processor can be permanently damaged.
Step 1

Unplug the computer from the wall. Remove all devices from the back of the computer and move them away from the area where you will be working. Either wear an anti-static wristband or discharge any static by touching a metal part of the computer case.
Step 2

Remove the screws from the back of the computer case with a screwdriver. Pull the sides of the case off and set them aside. Lay the computer on its side so that you can easily see the motherboard and all parts connected to it. Locate the CPU fan; it will look similar to the image in the introduction.
Step 3

Ensure that no cables are hanging low and touching the blades of the CPU fan. Move any cables or other parts that could be hitting the blades of the fan causing noise. Tuck these cables and wires into an area where they cannot interfere with the CPU fan.
Step 4

Use a cotton swab to remove any dust that you can from the blades of the CPU fan. Don't use any harsh solvents or other cleaners that could drip down and damage the processor through the fan.
Step 5

Spray the compressed air into the fan to move the loose dust away from the processor fan. Move the dust into an empty section of the case with the canned air. Don't spray the air too hard or else you can spread the dust into other places in the computer.
Step 6

Use the vacuum cleaner to vacuum up the dust that you moved away from the CPU. Place a crevice tool or other attachment onto the hose to reduce the size of the opening and help ensure that you only remove dust.
Step 7

Replace the computer case. Plug the computer and all devices back in. Boot up the computer and check for reduced CPU fan noise.

Why is my computer shutting down suddenly

A computer that turns off without warning is often a heat related issue. Many computers today are designed to turn off or automatically reboot if the computer, processor, or other device in your computer gets too hot. If you have heard any abnormal noises coming from your computer recently such as a high squealing, this could indicate a fan may be failing in your computer.

You can first start by verifying the fan on the power supply is working by examining the back of the computer and seeing if the fan is moving and moving smoothly. For all other fans in the computer, you will need to either open the computer and make sure the fan are working and if your BIOS monitors the RPM of the fans, enter BIOS and make sure the BIOS does not report any errors.

Speaker static noise

The first thing to try is plugging a set of headphones into the speaker plug and testing, see if the crackling continues, if it doesn't it sounds like a short in your speakers (or the sound card, but my guess would be the speakers).

Post your results here so we can further assist you.

My pc is moveing slow can it move faster

You can make a computer move faster by removing some unecessary program that is installed on your computer to free up some memroy space and the best way to make much faster is upgrading the RAM or memory of the computer because the higher the RAM/memory the faster the computer works..

Hope that helps.......
