Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Very loud buzzing noise from laptop, underneath - most likely fan but am no expert so could be the drive? Noise starts about 2 minutes after powering it up from having been off all night. Guarantee ran out one month ago (!) I live in Buckinghamshire, I believe it is a hardware problem, the laptop was my daughter's 18th Birthday present last June, she is at college, so I would like an address of a competent HP technician who can provide spare bits.

Hi,

If the notebook is working fine otherthan the noise comming from the notebook, then you can try to download ans install the latest BIOS update for your notebook.

If you contact HP support with your notebook serial and product numbers, they can provide the BIOS update download link.

If the notebook is not working at all, I mean if there is no display on the notebook, then you have to try power drain.

Here are the steps to do power drain:

Try doing power drain by taking out the battery & keep holding down the power button for complete one minute to drain out the power from the computer components. Restart the computer after putting the battery in.
Try restarting the computer only with the AC power, without the battery & vice-versa.

If there is no display at all even after power drain then you can try remove and reseat the memory module (RAM)of your notebook. You can get manual on how to reseat the manula from HP.

As I said before, if the notebook is working fine otherthan the noise you have to get the BIOS update from HP.

There is free chat support from HP to get the BIOS update.

If you want to check if the sound the comming from the harddrive, then you can check the Harddrive from BIOS.

In BIOS you can find this option. If you want to know how to open the BIOS, then get back to me with the exact model number of your notebook, so that I can help you.

If you want to contact HP authorised service center then,

Please follow the steps listed below for assistance in locating a local HP Authorized Support Provider.

1. Go to the following Web site:
http://hp.infonow.net/bin/findNow?CLIENT_ID=HP_LOC_USA_SRV

This will take you to the find a US local HP authorized service
provider page.
2. In the category menu select the appropriate HP product.
3. After selecting the appropriate category you will get a list of HP products in the Family box. Select the family in which your
product is located.
4. After Selecting the family of the product you will get a list of
products under the product list.
5. Select your product from the list under the product section and click Next.
6. Follow the instructions on the service options page.
If no stores are located, repeat the search using another zip code within your local area.

I tried to provide complete infromation on this.

Emachines laptop keep freezing and making loud buzzing noise when i listen to music. please help


The buzzing/grinding noise is probably a bad connection if you are using earphones. Put a couple of drops of rubbing alcohol on some toilet paper and clean the prong for your earphones. Wait a minute and reinsert the plug into the jack. As for the freezing up of the video, you might want to download and install your video drivers for your emachine. Go to the manufacturer's web page to find the right ones. Don't forget to reboot after installations.

Locate what is making the noise. There is a fan in the freezer behind the rear cover inside. There is a fan underneath accessed from the rear behind the cardboard backing. The compressor is also there with a starter/overload relay which could make the noise.

Loud Fan and Slight Overheating


most likely sounds like your hard drive. Mine did the same thing starting that loud whirring noise and overheating a lot. i took it into geek squad at best buy and it cost 199.99 for the diagnosis of the problem and the repair ( if you want just a diagnosis its 69.99) and then had to buy a hard drive ( i went for the 320 GB for 109.99) and they installed it for free same day in and out. took the whole process about 5 hours on a friday afternoon.

Loud Buzzing noise


Sounds like the fan is hitting some ice build-up. If you can access the area of the fan motor you can try a hair dryer to defrost the ice out of it.

Very loud fan or vibration noise


Listen from the back of the TV and locate the source of the noise. There may be fan with a bad bearing. The noise will lead you to it.
