I just had the same problem to deal with. My computer automatically turned on, and just when you thought it was gonna work, there was a single, loud beep. I immediately unplugged the computer. Make sure all the cords and chips are properly and securely connected. My problem was that my memory cards were loose. Maybe that'll help.

    During boot up computer makes noise


    Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

    One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive


    Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

    the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

    make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

    even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause you problems

    computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly


    motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail

    check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working


    also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

    check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease

    hope this helps

    DELL 8400 MAKES A LOUD FAN NOISE AND WONT BOOT


    There are 2 basic fans in Dell tower one for the power supply and the other for the Processor. If your computer is not booting then the Processor fan is most likely to be the culprit. What could be happening is that the Processor fan is no longer turning fast enough to cool the processor, so normal the processor when it over heats there is either protection to switch off the computer automatically or the computer won't boot. The best thing is to change the fan and make sure it is working properly but checking on the cables that they won't entangle on top of the fan to impede it's movement. You can easily damage your processor if the fan is not working properly.

    After im on it for about five minutes it makes a loud roaring noise and freezes. The noise doesnt stop until i turn it off.


    Sounds like a bad hard drive or a bad CPU Fan. Try a different hard drive in the machine, and see if the machine boots up without making that sound and locking up. If it does then that means the original hard drive is bad.

    If its not the hard drive then, replace the CPU fan and see if the sound goes away, if it does then you know the CPU Fan is bad.

    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!

    Dell optiplex gx280 makes loud fan sound at startup and enters windows screen, but will not finish booting and freezes up.


    You may have a problem with your power supply(the loud fan noise) and eventually it may get too hot and will cause problems like not fully booting.

    My computer makes a loud noise in the fan


    The drive door issue may indicate a virus infection. As to the fan, you would have it replaced. If not under warranty open the case and track which fan the noise is coming from

    Shut down problem


    Try getting in through Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key while the computer is booting.

    If you can get in.

    Right click on My Computer, select Properties, click Advanced, click on Settings for Startup and Recovery. Make sure there is NOT a check in the Automatically Restart box.
