Responding to the grinding sound...my desktop starting having a grinding sound after 3 years and it turned out to be the fans used for cooling the unit. If the fans are going bad, replace them immediately. If they should fail, the system can overheat and the system can act oddly or crash permanently. Fans don't cost much usually, labor does. It's not hard to replace a fan.
Please note that this response does not address the other symptoms mentioned by szy387.

Brakes make a whistle noise when applied and sometimes a low grown or grinding when coming to a slow stop or start.


A grinding or rumbling noise can also be symptoms of a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint in a driveshaft. A worn wheel bearing can also cause a 'whistling' sound (as can a worn CV joint).

A grinding noise with brakes is either worn pads causing metal to metal contact on the brake disk/rotor, or the brake backing plate catching on a spinning rotor ... or a loose/missing anti squeal brake shim (they stop the pads from rattling and vibrating).

However, as you say a mechanic has looked at the brakes and can't find anything wrong .. I think I would begin to suspect a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint on the driveshaft (front wheel drive cars).

Grinding wining noise when slowing down cruising at slow speed, not turbo wine and the noise does not change when turning left and right. 2004 2.0 TDI Audi A3


This may sound obvious, but I would have your brakes checked out, just to rule them out. Many shops will do a free brake inspection.
If the noise is coming from the engine, look for a "Check Engine" light. If you see that, then have someone hook up a scanner to check the codes thrown by the car's computer and go from there.
A grinding noise is not something you want to put off or wait to fix.

Noise my 03 xterra makes when I crank it up. One guy said exhaust manifold and another said knock sensor. Just need a second opinion.


Many times a bad starter motor makes noise like clanking, clicking or grinding when crank the engine. Replace the starter. Sometimes, if the starter motor is grinding the gears on the flywheel, the engine will have a metallic grating sound when you first crank it. This type of starter noise is normally indicative of a starter motor that is worn and about to fail. If you do need to replace your starter this site looks like it has cheap prices, free shipping and great reviews http://www.buyautoparts.com/starter.htm

Asus EEE netbook freezes while watching video or gaming. It freezes for about 2 minutes then recovers. Suggestions?


Netbooks have very slow processors and graphics cards compared to their laptop and desktop counterparts. You could try and see if their is an update for the video drivers but you might just be screwed. I had an acer netbook and it sometimes had problem with full screen video, it would glitch well watching it.

It is running so slow!! It pauses and screen fades to light color! I cannont do my work!! Help!!


This could be for a couple of reasons, 1) you have a virus causing your laptop to crash or 2) you have a faulty Hard Drive.

Try downloading and running Hit Man Pro (an anti-virus software) that should clean up any viruses you have, download it here:

Run the scan and remove and viruses it finds and reboot the computer...see if this makes any difference, if not, try booting up in the recovery partition and repairing Windows.

Let me know if this helps

1.Watch videos at off peak times, if possible 2.Do not run other programs while watching videos. They slow down computer ingeneral by making use of memory. 3.Add RAM on your computer. More RAM will make easy execution of heavy programson your system. 4.Get better and speedy internet connection. Talk to your ISP in this regard. 5.Regularly clean windows registry. Windows registry is vital place that storesinformation for important computing functions. A congested or corrupted windowsregistry makes computer slow that causes YouTube like freezes. For this, getthe best registry cleaner RegInOut cleaner and optimizer. Use it once in afortnight for fast computing to avoid YouTube freezes and system slow down.

Xbox 360 is making grinding noises


H there,

I have made a tutorial for all those people having problems with their discs, such as;
•Dirty Disc Errors
•Games crashing half way through , due to reading problems
•Discs sometimes loading, and sometimes not being recognised
•the classic "OPEN TRAY" problem
•and also glitching FMV or slow loading games (some games are just slow, its normal so be patient)

Please remember to test the disc on another console to ensure you have burnt it correctly. This is so you dont go and adjust the pot when its actually ok.

Not loading game


the reason it makes the "grinding" noise is because the motor that moves the lens to read the disk is dieing, this generally happens when you have played your ps2 for a long time, this only happens to older consoles.
