Hi terry44,
Try this first. Open the case. Please ground your self by touching any metal surface. Than place your hand on the hard disk drive. Do not hold the underside. Start the PC & continue to hold & listen. You mentioned the system runs for a short time, let’s see if it will crack & shut down while you’re touching the drive.
We want to see if the system still shuts down & you hear that crack. If it’s the hard disk drive you will feel it as well as hear it.
If you feel like the crack came from the hard disk drive than replace the drive because its going to die. Your thoughts about the board could be correct. With the case opened you should be able to pin down where the crack is coming from.

Let me know if this helped & what you found.
Get back to me.
Good Luck!

Mike

Why would my harley davidson 1998 dyna wide glide stop running after a short trip after being shut off for 20 minutes and restarted?


when it shuts down does it sputter first or is the shut down immediate without warning. sputtering is usually a condition of lack of fuel.any intake leak at the manifold especially at the head will cause "sneezing" out of the carb. Restart can be difficult and intermittent. A weak ignition module especially the adjustable kind can be unpredictable. a lot of the after markets are adjustable.A 1998 scooter tells me you have an Evo and being it's 16yrs old the likelihood of having a stock module is nil. check the plug where the module plugs to the ignition harness as well. Often times,because of it's age,these pins turn green or they either bend or they pull out just enough to break contact. I've also experience cracking of the wire insulation causing temporary short. shutting down the engine and difficult restarts.As with all jobs,check the simplest and obvious and don't start buying parts until you have checked all connections especially at the module where it meets the ignition harness.

Intermittent loud cracking noise when running, otherwise performs ok


Hello,
Does the loud cracking noise normally happen at night when its quiet.
Anyway whenever it happens it is most probably the automatic defrost heater kicking in and the noise you hear is ice melting.This could cut in every 12/14 hours depending on system and would normally run for about 15 mins.After this time the compressor should cut back in and the unit will run as normal.

Hope I helped.

The refrigerator run loud for twenty minutes or so then it stops for ten minutes and starts running loud again


If the noise is coming from the back of the fridge, it could be the compressor is dying. Its cycling and over heating shutting off then trying to restart a short time after once the thermal overlaod resets. You hould call a service tech sooner than later.

Electric Kenmore Dryer runs short time (seconds) and then stops.


your thermostat/s are not doing their jobs. They are allowing your dryer to overheat and also if your dryer has not been cleaned out on the interior you might want to do that. I've taken out globbs of lint build-up in them.

Whirlpool Top-Mount Refrigerator Freezer warm, cracking noise


8yr old? Buy a new one. The cracking sound is from expansion and contraction of the cabinet and ice cooling or defrosting. It can be as simple as a bit of a top up of refrigerant, but can also be that your compressor has worn down the valve plates and therefore is not producing sufficient pressure throught the system.
