HP or your antivirus software's regard for its updates caused the updates to clear out your fan/power settings and that's fan noise. If the hard drive keeps going, you'd better find out what that junk is using Process Explorer (downloadable from Microsoft) and probably get rid of that thing. It's probably just running some virus scan once, and all that CPU and drive activityr is necessarily turning fans on, really.
Still, it's like they throw stuff in with some abandon because of people whose machines had no antivirus, and thus are spamming without the owners' knowledge. Hard to blame them, eh?

Desk top computer w/ SN: CNH4390C89, P/N PJ506AA, won't turn on. when it was working, fan was noisy most of the time


The computer fan may be clogged with dust or may have failed. The computer monitors the fan and if it is not working it will not let the computer start. It is a way for the pc to keep itself from overheating. Unplug the computer and open the cover and carefully try to vacuum or blow out all the dust. Then with the cover off try starting the computer and watch the fans and see which one is not turning, it may start if there was a lot off dust. If not the fan may need to be replaced.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have the hp director icon on my desk top and have used it in the past. It will not respond now when I want to scan.


do you use HP Director for HP Printer ? IF so, the HP Director may not work now as it is for long stopped by HP for Scanning use.

You can try this patch from HP Website for HP Director

try the above patch and restart your pc and try HP Director.
OR else
You will have to download the latest drivers from HP website and install them

Not recognizing the speakers.


Operating systems don't auto detect speakers. You have to go into the sound setup in Control Panel and you can tell the computer if you have headphones, surround sound, 2 speaker, 4 speaker setup or whatever. If your sound just isn't working then you need to go into or sound card setup and probably tell it what you have plugged into each jack or let it auto detect your speakers.

Are Dell monitors not compatible with older HP Pavilion Computer? I tried to connect my HP CPU to a Dell monitor and it will not recognize it at all.


It shouldn't make any difference which monitor you are connecting to any computer. In fact, I am running a 19" HP Flat Panel on my Dell Dimension 2400 right now. It is NOT a wide screen monitor as the Dell built in graphics card will not support the RESOLUTION RATIO required for the wide screen. Check what setting is "native resolution" for your monitor and see if your graphics card will support it. If not, using your old monitor, try different resolution settings. Right click on your desk top, click on properties and that should bring up the display properties box. Try a lower setting as larger settings are the ones that will give you a black screen. It will probably give you a smaller picture on your old monitor, or perhaps smaller or larger icons on the desk top. Accept the new settings, turn off your computer and switch monitors, and turn your computer back on. If you get a picture, but it does not fill the whole screen or the icons seem too large or small, then go back into properties from the desktop and try a different resolution ratio until the picture seems correct.

Desktop screen freezes up when I 'right click' mouse on any ico


This sounds as if there is a problem with Webshots corrupting a specific dll file in the Windows system. I hate to say this, but that usually means a complete reinstall from scratch. I would recommend trying to backup all of the files and reinstall windows.
