By power box do you mean power supply? if so then the fan inside your power supply is probably clipping something as it rotates. I would suggest replacing it because if its not the fan then its failing. If you dont mean power supply just your PC, then it would be the same, a loose wire or something is rubbing one of the fans inside the case, either a cooling fan or the cpu fan.

My fuse box is makeing a real fast clicking sound on a 2004 lincoln/navigator


Mine was a bad battery, it does not have the power to activate the solenoid switch for the fuse box, that is the fast cliking sound you hear, test your battery,hook it up to another battery or jumper cables.

There are no active mixer drivers available information msg comes when i clicked volume cntroller


Go to Start - Programs - Accessories - Multimedia or Entertainment and then select Volume Control. Note: If you have more than one playback device installed in your computer, make sure that the proper device has been selected before modifying the mixer control settings. To do so, select Properties from the Options menu, and make sure that the proper device has been selected.
Make sure that the Mute All check box below the Volume Control slider and the Mute check box below the Wave slider are not checked, and that the Balance sliders for Volume Control and Wave are in the center of the scale.
Move the Volume Control and Wave sliders at least halfway to the top of the scale. If the Play Control and Wave sliders do not appear, select Properties from the Options menu, and then make sure the Play Control and Wave check boxes are checked. You may need to adjust the current Play Control or Wave slider settings to play wave files at the volume level you want.
If you hear popping or crackling noise from USB speakers, turn off the SpeedStep (if you have a Intel Mobile Pentium III processor) functionality during the sound session. To do so, set the power scheme to an non-adaptive mode: Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Performance and Maintenance, and click Power Options. On the Power Schemes tab, click Always On in the Power schemes box, and then click OK.

I have just installed speakers on my computer, but I can't get any sound.


Check to make sure the speakers power up.

Check to make sure you have installed the speakers into the correct jack on the back of the PC.

Go into Control Panel and check the settings by double-clicking the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. Make sure the Mute box isn't checked and that the volume is turned up.

Power BOX supply cord problem or hardrive problem?


Check these settings first. In a clear spot on the screen where no icons are, right click and go to properties, box opens and at top should list from R to L, themes-desktop-screensaver-appearance-advanced. click on screensaver, close to bottom click on power, another box should open, click on power schemes, make sure it's set to portable/laptop, and at bottom make sure settings for plugged in are are set to never. If it's not that then you have a bad power supply cord, or a bad power supply unit in laptop. If it's new and under warranty take it in and have replaced if not warrantied then will cost you about 100-150, just a guess!! hope this helps. But it sounds like the supply cord making the beeping noise might be bad. Make sure it's plugged all the way in as well.

No sound but i have power


Unless they are USB speakers they would not need a mixer or drivers device.

Plug in ONLY the regular wired speakers and ONLY to the green port on the back.

Make sure they are powered up and the volume is about half way.
OK now you need to call up ether the sound card application or preferably the windows volume control from the bottom tool-bar.

Click Open Volume Control.

A box with sliders in should appear. make sure that volume control, wave, sw synth, aux, cd player, line in
are all about half way and that none of them have ticks in the box at the bottom.

If any of those are missing click options then properties from the top left and put a tick besides any that were missing (nothing else)

Now close the slider box.

Put a normal music CD in your CD/DVD player on the computer and set it to play with windows media player.

You should now have sound out of the speakers.

Double check again and make sure it all works.

If you still have any problems check your hardware list and make sure thee are no exclamation marks by any sound hardware (excl. speakers)

These need to be sorted out first. for that you need to know what your sound card is and download the drivers (or update them)
