Hello,

This is likely to be as a result of your fan not cooling the processor properly again, possibly because of the powdery substance that was used to clean the system, and it has now been drawn into the system by the fan.

Therefore my suggestion would be for you to unscrew your laptop (If you can do it by yourself), and try to clean, or better still replace your processor fan.

If you cant do it by yourself, you can easily get a technician to do it for you.

I have actually had the same case before, and after doing what I've just told you, it stopped behaving like that.

And you are also still very lucky, because after a while, if the case worsens, the system will not just be making noise, but it will start to overheat and be powering-off automatically.

Then always make sure that your laptop is in a well ventilated, cool environment and that the environment is free from dusts.

Hope this helps you out.

Goodluck!

Weird beeping noises


Need to know what make and model of laptop you have. It could be the CD drive's internal hardware, or the hard drive beginning to fail, or even a failing fan. You may be able to get MSI to repair it for free if you call them (If it's a warranty issue).

You should make a back up of anything important on your laptop if it's about to fail...

Hard


  1. Open the cover that is over your HDD
  2. Remove the Hard Drive from it's casing
  3. Now replace the HDD ensure everything is connected properly
  4. If possible, power up and listen for the HDD to spin, if it's making no noise or a very noticeable clicking noise it's time to purchase a new HDD
  5. If not power on anyway and see if you get the same error.
  6. Try a spare HDD instead, this would indicate if the HDD you have now has failed also
Let me know how you get on

No power with adapter or battery no lights on laptop, no noise


More than likely your power supply has failed. Your computer probably ran on the remaining battery power when you noticed it. If you have another power supply to try you could determine that. Also, the plug in on the computer takes a beating on laptops and that could have failed as well.

More than likely your battery is in good shape, it just hasnt been charging due to the poor charger.

Hope this helps.

A whirling sound comes on when booted. Have to lift it and thump atop desk to stop noise. Its getting worse and requires repeated thumping for noise to stop....pls help! Model no: ax1800-e1232 Also...


If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

If none of this solves the problem, or is not the case, then you might have a bad motherboard

Scratching Noise


Spray some WD-40 on the pully where the belt rests on the pully while the engine is running and the noise will go away, also make sure the belt is tight enough around the pully, if it is loose then tighten it

My wireless connection has gone down - internet connection is fine, AOL say I need to turn my wireless connector on but I didn't do it initially and don't know how to do it - help pls!


try a system restore first to the date when laptop was working fine with the wireless. if fails then uninstall then reinstall the wireless driver. if fails check if the wireless device still detected in the device manager. if fails then reseat the wireless card.

if you are using a wireless device thru usb then make sure the usb ports can read other usb devices just to isolate the case. if fails then do a clean installation.
