A funny squeaking noise may mean that your Hard Drive has crashed. Try to get into your BIOS (hold the F2 key (or whatever it says to use to get to Setup). If it goes to Bios, then you know the screen is working. Restart Windows normally. Hold down the F8 key this time, to try to get to Safe Mode. Go ahead and use the arrow keys to choose Safe mode with Network Support. Since this needs your Hard drive you can verify its operation. If no go then you will probably need to replace your Hard Drive.

No Reverse and the fluid is dirty and smells funny.

Sounds like you blew out your reverse belt/gear in the transmission. Probably going to need a transmission rebuild/replacement.

My horn stopped working on my 2001 oldsmobile silhouette. It made a funny noise before it went out. We changed the relay but that didn't do the trick. Any ideas?

The horn itself is dead , that funny noise was it's last breath. You can get a horn from an auto wrecker for just about nothing. It does not necesarilly have to be from the same vehicle , as long as it fits.

I was using my laptop when it threw up a message to turn it off then the screen went a green colour then blank.I have since tried to start it again but it is only making a funny noise.It is only 10 weeks...

I could go into a long explanation of how to troubleshoot the laptop but if it's only ten weeks old... take it back. if the noise you hear is like a ticking noise the hard drive may have quit.


incidentally was that a blue screen or green
