Hi my c1 has started to make a whining sound (bit like a dog whine) the last couple of days. It tends to get louder and is intermittent, it starts when the engine is fired up (no probs starting engine)...


Have your drive belt replaced (sometimes called the auxiliary or serpentine belt) when it slips it creates a screeching noise and it's also a sign that it's going to fail (snap).
These can run the alternator and power steering so you should change it as a preventative measure.

I drive a 2001 Chevy Tahoe with around 164,000 miles on it. I just got the power steering pump replaced yesterday and drove it last night and today and now when I turn corners it's making a really bad


Make sure that belt is tight. Make sure the connection to the pump is lined up correctly. Last but not least you may have to flush the whole system and refill it.

My Dell XPS 210 makes a loud whining noise when powered up and lasts for minutes until turned off. Can you identify what the issue is and how to fix?


It sounds like a fan problem, it could be one on the case, the motherboard or in the powersupply. fans are generally inexpensive, but if it is the power supply it will be a couple more bucks to fix. There could even just be a buildup of dust on them. Compressed air can usually clean them out. HDD can also cause noises in some cases but hopefully thats not your problem.

I have a high pitched noise which appears to be coming from front right engine compartment (as you are looking at the engine) which sounds kind of like a belt that is squealing. It is intermittent. Just...


Could be several things. WHICH ENGINE?.. 4 cylinder (has three belts, power steering/water pump, alternator & A/C compressor, one tensioner pully A/C compressor), The V6 2.7 (has only one belt, 1 Idler pully and 1 tensioner pully), the V6 3.5 has two belts - A/C/alternator, and power steering - there are two tensioner pullys). Noises can be caused by the belt(s) themselves, pullys, bearings, pully bearings, water pump shaft bearings (or belts/pullys rubbing up against something). Let's not forget that there is also belt(s) behind the Timing Belt cover as well as pullys and bearings associated with the timing system. You could start by removing one accy drive belt at a time (alternator, water pump, compressor, power steering, etc) to see whether or not the noise goes away in each case. If after each case, you discover the noise is still there, it's probably behind the timing belt cover (idler/tensioner pully, water pump shaft bearing, crankshaft bearing, etc.). Good Luck

Fan makes a lound noise and power button is orange


It sounds as if your power supply is cooked because the cooling fan has been running slow

Only way you can check is to take a panel off and hook a voltmeter into the 12v & 5V supplies on the Hard Drive and the Floppy Drive.

Laptop 'freezes' after about half an hour of operation


Is the hard drive making a clacking noise, and/or does the mouse freeze only once or freeze and unfreeze a few times before dying completely?
