Hard drive motor or bearings are on there way out I recommend to backup all you data onto another Hard drive you can use a program called norton ghost or if you can still find it a program called prep.

You may also try in the bios settings is to load defaults this may speed up the boot sequence.

Hope this is some help

We had a power surge from the campground electrical hookup. Now our usually quiet ac in the rv is running very noisy. What could cause this?


A power surge can trash the motor inside the compressor and the inside fan motor. Now comes the question will the repairs cost less than a whole new unit?

DLE2050 making strange spinning noise


I guess I wasnt clear enough. The dryer works ok, except for the rattling sound now. It will start when i push the start button, it heats, and dries the clothes. Just noisy where before the flow sensor went off, it was pretty quiet.

I have an Evesham Evolution desktop with Windows XP SP2 product recovery disc. I want to reformat the drives and carry out full "clean" install and reload all software. I insert the recovery...


It sound like you have a recovery disk not an install disk. The recovery disk you have just lets you repair windows only. If you insert the disk after windows starts and it runs you can then try to back up what you want and delete what you don't want, then run a windows repair. Its the only option, My other suggestion is to purchase Windows 7 and do a clean install.

My evolution 3000 been occasionally powering down for no apparent reason for a couple of weeks. now completely died. no power at all. won't switch on or show any life.


Power Supply's have a Form Factor. (Actually only motherboards do, but most Power Supply's follow the motherboard Form Factor)

The ATX designation determines it's size, shape, and factors concerning the various power cables coming out of it, (Spaghetti), plus other concerns.

An ATX power supply shape is generally close to 6 inches long, (15.24 Centimeters), 6 inches wide, and 3-1/2 inches tall.
(8.89 Centimeters)

It is the common size and shape used for 90 percent of the personal computers made, out there.

From what I have been reading about Evesham, they used typical power supply cables used for most ATX power supply's.

Basic specifications on the Evesham Evolution 3000 desktop computer,

http://www1.epinions.com/specs/pr-Evesham_Evolution_3000_evop3ghblulightmar04_PC_Desktop

Power Cables:

1) Don't know if the Power Supply will have a 20-pin ATX main power cable, or a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

In reality the point is moot, because new power supply's have a main power cable which will be a 20-pin connector, or a become a 24-pin connector.

To expound,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20plus4

(If you scroll up the page, you can see a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector.

Scrolling further up produces a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector.

Color of the connector does not matter)

2) The Evesham Evolution 3000 specifications, state that an Intel Pentium 4 processor is used.

This means there will be a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, which plugs into the motherboard.

Example,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

(Again, color of the connector does not matter)

3) There will be a few 4-pin Peripheral power cables,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

One connects to the Harddrive, one connects to the Optical drive, (Or optical drives. Spec's state just one CD/DVD drive is used)

4) There is a Floppy Disk drive power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#floppy

(Again, I'm going off of the specifications stated. Your Evesham may not have a Floppy drive)

To be continued in a Comment.

My dell 610 laptop has started running slow


if you are experiencing these and unsure on what to do, better take your laptop a laptop tech, if you feel that you needed a hard drive change, then take it to a tech, have them replace your old hard drive

Slow Dell computer 4600


Normally computers get slow for the following reasons.
1) Infected with malware/viruses. Run free programs available from (CNET) www.download.com. These include MalwareBytes, SPybot Search and Destroy, Adaware.
2) Computer hard drive is full or seriously fragmented. Try removing unneeded programs (especially pictures) and then attempt a defragmentation.
3) Hard disk failing or getting old. Sometimes this is due to environment. Smoky, dirty or dusty environments will eventually contribute to build up of heat inside the computer and excessive heat kills computers. Also hard drives are mechanical and they do wear out over time. Laptop drives take more abuse because they are moved around more than desktops. If they start getting noisy then it is time to prepare to replace it. If you haven't done it yet GET YOUR IMPORTANT DATA OFF NOW!!!!
4) Overclocked or over heated processors. Dust buildup in the cooling fans and heat sinks can cause the temperature to rise and when processors get heated up they slow down and evenyually crash.
5) Running out of memory. As our computers get older we keep adding programs and eventually (if we dont upgrade the memory) the computer runs out of memory.
So if I were in your shoes I would do the following:
1) run some of the malware removal programs I suggested (if your hard drive has the available space for them) and also run your anti-virus program.
2) Remove unneeded files from the hard drive and then run the disk defragmentation tool. I once had a customer that had jammed her hard drive full of pictures and when it crashed it had no room to rebuild itself.
3) if all that does not improve the speed then see about getting an upgrade for the memory.

Bad hard drive back up and replace on evesham ebox


The only thing I can think of is you might hook up the drive as "slave" drive on a working computer and see if it will operate long enough to retrieve your data. But if the drive is dead you may have lost everything that was on it. There are services that do data recovery on dead hard drives but I'm sure it is expensive to have this done. This is why I always back up everything I do to a different device while I am working.
