I own a Sony that has done this before. What I did was shut down, unplug, open case and check every connection on all boards. I found several loose ones, then I cleaned it out with a can of air and a clean paint vrush. When I put it back together and powered on the problem was gone. Please let me know if this helps.

Hi,

Initially I would suspect hardware failure on your PC. The only user action possible would be to open the PC and look over the memory sticks and the video card (if not built-in). Remove them and clean the little gold pin edges. Additionally, it might be of help to clean the slots where they go to with the use of a clean dry paint brush. Soon as everything is cleaned, reinsert the memory and/or video card to their respective slots. Power up your PC. If it runs OK, you're set to go if not, pls determine if you can hear a series of beeping sounds. Pls post back describing the sequence and duration of the beeps.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Beep codes beeps


Hi Anon, the best thing to do is contact Dell and ask them what the error codes mean.
Judging by the fact that the fan in your computer is louder than usual, I suspect that you may have an overheating problem, this can usually be cured by blowing compressed air (available in small cans from Maplins, PC World, etc) through the fan on the motherboard to remove any dust that may be stopping it working properly.
You could also try reseating your ram.
Temperature and ram issues are the two most common causes of beep error codes, but they might also indicate a motherboard problem.

HP Compaq Presario SR1738NX will turn on, but nothing besides the fans seem to work


Unless you are familiar with removing and installing the internal components of the computer it is unlikely that you will be able to fix this computer yourself. It sounds like there is a hardware fault. It could be as simple as something overheating or even a fan cable coming loose but at almost 10 years old it's amazing the system is still going. I'm sorry I don't have a simple answer to give you to make your computer just work again.

Good luck.

Usually computers make beep sounds when starting up.

Do you hear any of the beep sounds?
If you hear two beeps with an interval of a couple of second, than the computer should be ok.

It could also be the monitor. Try connecting the monitor to a computer that works, or try connecting a working monitor to your computer. If the computer lights up with another monitor, then the monitor is faulty.

If the computer still is not starting up with a working monitor, than the videocard of the computer should be checked next.

Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems. 1. Start up your desktop as normal but as soon as it starts keep pressing the 'F8' key. 2. You will have a black background with white writing on and lots of options. 3. Use the up and down arrow keys and select last known good configuration, then press the enter key to select it. philswift_4.jpg
Your computer should start up. If you have a blank screen, do you hear the fans whirring and see lights on the front? If so then your computer works but is not sending s signal out to the monitor. Check all cables to make sure they are securely connected. If you still have no image. Swap your monitor for a friends one that you know works. This will test if it is your monitor that has failed. If you see an image on your friends you will need a new monitor or new monitor cable. If you do not see an image on your friends monitor and your PC has lights and fan whirring then you need to get a new graphics card. If you have no lights and no fan whirring it is outside the scope of this and we need some more information as it could be 1. Failed power supply 2. Failed memory 3. Blown motherboard 4. Failed processor
Please report back with answers to 1. Do you hear fans whirring? 2. Do you see a power light/led light up? (in example pic it is green) 3. Do you see the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) LED/light flash at all? philswift_5.jpg

Many thanks for your information

My monitor suddenly lost signal and hasn't returned


do you mean the processor fan that is located near on the left top corner on the motherboard? if that stopped working then turn of your pc immediately. probably the cpu overheated. if that fan does not work replace it immediately as it will burn the cpu.

Loud noise when turning on my computer


THIS IS NORMAL!!!
When the machine boots up the fans are running at full speed, and after a moment the bios loads teh power management that lowers the fans to the needed speeds. If you tax your computer the fans will speed up to compensate for the heat produced and will get louder then as well...
The larger and more powerful your CPU and Video Card the louder the startup will be. Some of the newest quad core computers with high dollar vido cards will sound like a jet taking off when starting up, I know mine does!

Louder whirring noise when turning on computer


trumpjd,
Usually on startup the fans work a little harder then slow down. On newer computers they still have noticable fan noise. Most of what ou hear while the machine is running after start up is the power supply fan. When it starts to go bad you'll hear it all the time.
