Like grinding? I would always recommend not using a hard drive that has abnormal sounds going on with it, especially if you've not backed anything up. It sounds like your hard drive may be failing.

2008 vw jetta makes noise from blower


OK. The noise you are hearing is the recirculation flap motor. It could be what is causing the condensation. Easy way to check in after the noise has stopped push the recirculation button on the AC controls to see if the noise happens. If the motor is bad and the flap isn't closing you could be getting moisture from the outside air. As far as the check engine light goes there is no relation. 2 completely different systems. The flap motor would probably run you a couple hundred of dollars. The check engine light could be anything.

My laptop turns on but has black screen. power plug light comes on and the power on light comes on but nothing else. the hdd light does not come on or blink, flas or anything. the hdd sounds like it is...


if turning it on with no RAM installed doesn't make it beep to indicate no RAM, it's sounding like it is the motherboard that is damaged.

If the computer is still under warranty, I'd suggest taking advantage of that warranty to have the motherboard replaced. If not, you are better off just buying a new computer.

Does the weird noise sound like a whining noise? Like something is spinning? If so then your color wheel is going out.

Speakers making weird sound


This is the test tone for the speakers, usually means you have connected the input lead into the diagnostic port. The input leads plug into your computer/ipod/TV etc. there may be 2 of them but you only need one plugged in.

Weird lines on screen, freeze-up; laptop won't start again -- no bios, dead.


An easy way is to buy a laptop HDD USB caddy (2.5") and put your HDD into that, connect it to another PC to remove the data.
