Sounds like your hard drive has gone bad. Can be easily replaced with another 2.5" laptop hard drive but all your stuff is lost I'm afraid. Get it fixed under warranty if you still have time.

This morning my sony vaio nw20 serirs started making a kind of screeching noise from the fan area, it has not been dropped or damaged in anyway and stated with no warning


Laptop fans and heat-sinks collect dust in no time.
You need to maintain this clean, otherwise your laptop will over-heat.

Try to run compressed air in the fan and other laptop vents to clean any dust.

If the fan still does the noise, this mean that it will fail in the near future.
If the fan stop turning completely you have to turn off your laptop and leave it off until you replace the fan.
Don't use your laptop with no fan, if you do the processor will be permanently damaged.

I have a Toshiba A505-S6960 laptop. Never have had a problem until today.......when I turn the laptop on it goes through the boot process but only makes it to the Toshiba logo screen with the F2 and F12...


It seems that your computer is not seeing your hard drive. This could either be because of bios settings or more likely because the hard drive has failed. If the unit is under warranty, call Toshiba support and describe the issue to them. If not, places like Best Buy can determine for sure the cause of the issue.

I have a HPDV9000 Laptop and it is making a terrible loud noice, very annoying. Starts when turned on. What can it be. Thank you.


More than likely it's one of the cooling fans. They spin at relatively high RPM and if they're damaged they can emit a loud whirring or screeching noise. If it's a clicking noise then it could be your hard drive failing.

I have a compac presario cq60. when i turn on the computer the there is a blinking line in the top left corner. the computer does not come on.


Hmmm,
Ok, well if your machine shows the manufacturer logo (Compaq) and then goes to the blinking light there is usual and issue with either the hard drive (hardware) or the installed operating system (software). If the cursor is blinking before the logo this is usually an bad component (most likely ram or motherboard) causing the machine not to turn on correctly.
All of these issues need professional help, if not under warranty I would bring this to my local shop to be looked at.

Screeching noise after water starts going in


Hi just read your posting.Now put the machine to a spin cycle and push start,Does the noise happen in this cycle? If the noise doesn't happen then try a cold water fill but turn the hot tap off first.If the noise still doesn't happen then try a hot water fill but turn the cold water off first. This noise sounds like one of your water valves is faulty.Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure we can rectify this fault.

Dryer makes screeching noise..dries the clothes ..seems the tub is loose


at the top of the drum there is a felt pad with 3 white nylon glides attached to it. if this is worn, and it does wear, it will make a screeching noise like you described because it changes the postion of the drum and it will also appear like it is loose. you can purchase this part as a kit along with the glue to hold it on and it is not an expensive part. hope this helps.

Acer Aspire 5100 will not start right


It seems your hard drive has corupted.
This sucks, all you have to do is push ALT F10 and then go through the reseting menu, you will loose everything on there though except the original data.
