Question about Everex GA3400 Refurbished AMD Desktop Computer - AMD Athlon 64 3400+ 2.2GHz , 512MB DDR, 120GB HDD
Sometimes when you push the power button on the only thing that comes on is the light in the button,or the button and the internal startup fan (which stays running without slowing down).With either one of these there is no out going signal.You have to keep rebooting until it properly starts up.And when it does start up(I dont know if this is normal for this computer,its done since I bought it new)it lets out this really low growling noises like an old time fax or copying machine.It also recently has ben making some really low crackling noises.All these noises have been coming from the component thats in computer the case right behind the power button.And is it possible to get hardware schematics of the internals of this computer?
Seems to me a fan is place beside or behind your power button. And making the growling sounds, might be needed some oiling or its wires is touching its blade when it runs(crackling).
Powering without signal to monitor could be attributed to dirty memory contact or failing RAM card.
Some symptoms could be attributed to shorted to chassis component, power supply, and BIOS problem(constant rebooting to turn it on).

He interior of your PC is basic enough that an idiot like me can navigate through it with a good how-to book or tuorial. TechRepublic, CNET, PC Hell, PC World are just a few of the sites that have good articles and info. I also look for discussion groups and forums since they ofen have links posted inside that I may find interesting. Also check the website of the makers of your PC, Mother Board or whatever you want to know about.
