What is a throttle button? Is that on a joystick?

Sounds like your hard drive is going out or a CD is in the CD-ROM drive. It could be a fan going bad. You need to take that to someone and let them hear it. A shop should not charge you to listen to it. What kind of Laptop comes with a throttle? Is this in an Airplane?

Computer turn on, but when it does it won't POST


It seems like a motherboard issue. It heats up, thus is not able to turn on continuously. You may need to check internal parts embeded on the motherboard llike the fan and processor before you could know what needs replacement.

Dust behind laptop start button makes it hard to turn on


To clean out the start button, try using a compressed air canister with the tube attachment (looks like a straw). This makes the canned air's stream much more powerful and directed to allow you to expel the dirt from the power button.

Hello aneleopolski,

It could be that there is something obstructing the fan, as this is the major source for noise from a PC.

If you know how, open the side panel of the PC cabinet and inspect the fan. Make sure the fan grille is not dented or touching the fan in any way. Also make sure that the fan is in an exact upright position, as even a slight tilt can cause the fan to create a noise.
Make sure there are no loose parts in the cabinet, small pieces of plastic, loose screws, etc. Also make sure that when you replace the cabinet panel, there are no wires touching the fan grille. If there are wires running around the fan, try to tape them together and to the panel away from the fan.

Hope that helps...Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied.

New Computer Wont Boot!


when you say "the fan makes a noise like its getting ready to spin", which fan...power supply's or cpu? if you answer power supply, then the POWER OK signal is not returning to power supply and it then quickly shuts down to prevent further damage. double check a firm connection to mother board. If you answer CPU, then it becomes far more complicated. Try re-seating the memory chips.
