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.

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.

How do i turn on the bluetooth on my hp compaq 6720s


Not all compaq 6720s come with bluetooth module, but you can go to Control Panel --> System --> Hardware --> Device Manager, check whether your laptop is bluetooth ready, refer picture below,
863a309.jpg

If you can see the Bluetooth Devices in Device Manager, means your laptop is bluetooth ready. Then on your bluetooth by click the wireless button and you willl see blue light is on.

Check this icon at the right bottom corner of your desktop,

If BWT is disabled (red logo), enable it by right-clicking the Bluetooth icon and selecting Start the Bluetooth Device. The logo will change from red to white. Then you can use the Bluetooth Setup wizard to configure the service and security features as follows:
1. Right-click the Bluetooth icon, and then select Explore My Bluetooth Places.
2. Right-click the My Bluetooth Places icon in the Folders pane of Windows
Explorer and select Bluetooth Setup Wizard to begin the configuration process.

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.
