Dell Inspiron N5010 4 beep error


This may help. The 4 beep code error in Dell Inspiron N5010 mean Memory read / write failure. Try draining the residual charge and check if you are able to boot. Here are the steps:
  • Disconnect any external peripherals (flash drives, printers, external hard drives) from the computer including the battery and AC Adapter.
  • Press and hold the power button for 20 seconds.
  • Reconnect the battery and the AC Adapter. Try to restart the computer and check.
Please make sure that the memory modules are firmly reseated and there is no dust accumulated on the memory slot on motherboard.

When playing ps3 it keeps freezing


Hard Drive

If your PS3 lags or freezes when loading content from the hard drive, the drive either lacks free space or is faulty. To create more space, try removing items from your hard drive or getting a new hard drive with a higher storage capacity. A faulty hard drive must be replaced.

No disiplay on the screen of the laptop and on the external monitor


No display on either? Does it sound like the computer completed the boot cycle? Do you hear fans running and the hard drive spinning?

What happens when you hit the power button? Do you hear any beeps or see any blinking lights? Does anything post to the screen during the boot cycle?

If the boot cycle completed and you see no display on either monitor, then your video card is bad.

My WD external drive dropped about 2 feet. It now makes a whirring/beep sound. I was able to successfully disconnect the unit. I have turned off and restarted the computer. The whir and beep stopped,...


Ok their is a needle that FLOATS above the metal disks inside the hard drive, when that is dropped either when its on or off, if that needle TOUCHED the disk in anyway your drive is scratched and screwed, thats what happened to yours, sorry but you need to buy a new one.

External hard drive wont stay connected to computer


This depends where the failure is.

If your controller board for the external casing or your power supply have failed the drive can be removed from the casing and placed in a new one($30-$40), then it should work fine. If the circuit board on the hard drive or an internal circuit for the drive has failed then you may require the help of a pro.

Reply back if you need a recommendation for a pro, include your location.
