Re: noise inside cabinet

FIRSTLY if you have warrenty use it if not use the following steps .Open up your computer DONT TOUCH ANYTHING INSIDE , discharge yourself by touching an unpainted surface then proceed, turn on the pc Sound can vary one way that you can determine the source of noise is stoppping the fans whilst it is on one by one to determine the can remove the cd /dvd from any optical drive (dvd cd drive) .And 2nd you could tell if the hard drive is crashing if you hear a reoccuring clicking sound or a whirr of which the hard drive is crashing.Depending on your manufacturer of hard drive download their hard drive diagnostics program and check for bad sectors if there is an increasing number of it occuring then your hard drive would definately be in trouble.Any sign of this vibration can be caused by vibration so try to keep all the screws tightened .

Details on dual core issue. Hi, As you are aware, we are using WT12 Bluetooth Module on PC based system, which receives data from an embedded system, working together with a bluetooth dongle. The system...

You have gone on at length describing your problem, however you have failed to indicate what the Operating System is? I assume it is XP, and prey it is not Vista or Win 7? Or worse a 64bit version of those? Anyway, I sincerely doubt that the fact that the PC is "Dual Core" has anything at all to do with anything? Most likely it has to do with the transport driver layers and the Widcomm Bluetooth drivers almost without a doubt. Bluetooth whilst a great platform, is indeed fraught with problems.. It doesn't even work all that reliably on Cell Phones and Headsets, that it was designed for. Packet loss and corruption invariably is due to outside interference and, depending on Operating System, bad USB handling and interfacing, what with USB & Bluetooth together we always have problems. One way is too mitigate problems is to increase the Output Power of the Transmitter and buffer and error check at the receive end. Again I would try "Other" Bluetooth "Stack" such as say, Bluesoleil or Toshiba's one. This project indeed sounds like a challenge. I also think that one shouldn't be to fixated on things like Dual Core's & P4's and the like, I have never had an issue, such as you describe, with processors, the problem I am sure is elsewhere, use Occams razor.. and do not get side tracked. Good luck, If you were in NZ I would get hands on with you.. could be entertaining challenge to say the least. Good Luck

Dell Demension runs great but loud fan noise that takes a long time to shut down. What going wrong?

I had a similar problem with excessive fan noise on my Dell Dimension 5150. The solution was to replace the worn heat sync compound that was between the cpu and the heat sync itself. (£0.99 ebay)

Give me advice about lenova laptop

I'm guessing you are in India and you budget is in Rs.?

This notebook looks good, I'm not familiar with the brand but the specification look good for your price range. It only has 1GB of ram, but that is inexpensive and easy to upgrade.

It look like most of the other stores are offering Celeron based notebooks at your price point, I wouldn't recommend buying a Celeron based laptop; they are seriously lacking in computing power.

2 things come to mind when I hear this; the case fans or the power supply fans. I would check those first to see if they are the problem.

Best gaming desktop configuration for 700$

dell has a good deal on a studio desktop pc Core 2 duo quad core but even without the monitor its 550, then you have to add a good video card, integrated cards are garbage and so is intel, so the good ones are anout $100-300 intel and amd

to keep cost down you could also go with a core 2 duo (dual core) but stay away from celerons they **** for gaming
check staples/office max/best buy/circuit city or dell dot com for good deals

some dell studio's are slim desktops and unless you get a video card from dell they can be hard to find(near impossible)

Web cam will not install

Dear Sir/Madam,

Sonix Webcam detector task. Webcam program installed by the drivers for Sonix-made webcams. This program enables the System Tray webcam icon installed by your webcam drivers to recognize whether your webcam is plugged in or not. At the time of writing, 21-Jun-2007, our tests show that this program has no other purpose. Note : Sonix is an OEM manufacturer. That is, it manufactures webcams for other companies to re-sell under their own brand names and logos. As a result you will find this program installed by the drivers CD for a variety of makes of webcams, such as Argos' own brand, Mikomi, in the UK, LG, MSI, Olidata, etc...

Good Luck
