Sony :: Vaio SZ Fan Making Unusual Sound Spinning Down

Aug 20, 2009

Whenever my SZ fan spins down it makes a strange sound, as if it's rubbing against something.

I've disassembled the laptop and cleaned the fan. Nothing was obstructing the fan yet it makes the same noise.

It doesn't do it while spinning up, while running or even if I manually slow the fan down by holding a Q-Tip against it while it's spinning

Dell Inspiron 5520 :: Clicking Sound Coming Continuously

Feb 10, 2013

Just recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 5520 laptop with Intel Core i5-3210M CPU.  Had it for about a month.

A couple weeks ago, I noticed an annoying clicking sound coming from underneath the laptop.  It seems to be coming from the center of the laptop.  They occur continuously no matter what I'm doing on the laptop, but their frequency is random.  It will click once and then wait a few seconds til the next click sometimes or click twice back-to-back and wait a few seconds, etc.  No pattern as far as I can tell.

I did the Dell Hardware test, and it reported on faults...

The clicking sound is not super loud or anything.  I can't even hear it if the TV is on, but it gets super annoying after listening to it when the room is quiet.

This is my first Dell laptop, but I can't imagine this is normal.  I have had a Compaq and a Toshiba and other than the fan, you can really hear anything out of them...

Dec 1, 2014

I am using Dell Insipron 15R 5520 Laptop Windows 7. Last few days I am getting a long beep sound after I pressed the power button and the Dell progress bar loads. And if I press power button, its turning off. Later I've pressed F8 key to login in Wiindows Normal Mode, its opening Windows. So every time i've to press F8 key to login. Sometimes the beep sound continues and not logging in normal mode or in Safe mode. 

I thought it might be RAM issue and I checked 'System Settings' in Control Panel, it shows the usable RAM is 2.77GB of 8GB. 

I went to Dell laptop service center near by my location and they said its keyboard problem, they charging too much amount to replace keyboard. but my keyboard is working properly.

Dell :: Additional Hard Disk In Inspiron 1720 Will It Fit Into A Studio 17

Apr 22, 2009

I currently have a Dell Inspiron 1720 with a second hard disk I bought and fitted myself. If I get a Studio 17, will I be able to fit this hard disk into the second bay in there? As far as I'm aware the disk itself should be okay, but the caddy might be slightly different for that model - is that right? If so I'll just buy a new caddy or modify this one - otherwise I'll be 100 down for this hard disk!

Dell :: Upgrading Hard Disk On Inspiron 1520 Running Vista

Jan 6, 2009

I am replacing the installed Seagate Momentus 160 gb 5400 SATA disk with a Seagate Momentus 320gb 7200rpm SATA hard disk as I need the extra space to hold my growing itunes collection and feel the extra speed would also be welcome.

I have the original Dell installation disks (Operating System, drivers etc), the installation disks for the subsequently installed software (other than the freebies including iTunes etc available on the net) and have backed up all my critical data to an external hard drive using the vista backup facility for subsequent restoration once all the software has been installed.

I will of course keep the 160 gb drive available with all it's data intact as a secondary safeguard until I have satisfactorily completed the installation and testing of the new disk.

Dell Inspiron 15 :: Remote Hard Disk Drive Is Not Showing Document Files

Mar 27, 2013

Just purchased an Inspiron 15 laptop with Windows 8.  I removed the hard disk drive from our old Inspiron 6000, installed it in an enclosure, and hooked it to the new laptop to be able to access the document files.  (The hdd from the old computer is a Western Digital 250 GB and was newly installed six months ago).

When I plug in the enclosure, the power light comes on and it shows up on the new laptop as local disk E.  When I click on disk E and go to documents, the only documents shown are three that are saved on the new laptop, and none of the hundreds of documents saved on the hdd from the old computer.  What I can do?

Dell Inspiron N5050 :: Little Clicking Sound From Laptop Hard Disc

Feb 26, 2013

I have a Dell Inspiron N5050. The hard disc of the laptop makes little clicking sound, which can be heard only in silence or if you keep it close to your ear, but yeah it makes those sounds continuously.  I bought it last year and I noticed this sound after like 4 months. I have the latest firmware update installed and also checked the hard disc for errors, but that isn't making any effect. It working completely fine. I use it moderately, some Ms office works and a sometimes games too, like about 6 hours a day. No hangs, No high temperature and nothing.

But since I've experienced trouble with the hard disc of a PC (which crashed within days after it started making sounds), i am a little tensed about it. Should i take it to a service center? will a hard disc format be useful. The sound is louder when the device is booting.

I am using windows 7 Home basic SP1 x64, the hard disc is ST 9500325AS 500GB, 2GB RAM.

Acer :: Aspire 5520 No Sound Device Installed

Apr 26, 2010

I have upgraded to Windows 7 x64 (a fair while ago) and rencently it has started to come up with "No sound device installed" over the speaker icon in the sys tray.

This happens about 50% of the time when the computer has started up.
It never has any issues once the sound is working.

When the sound is not working "Sound, Video and Game Controllers" in Device manager is missing and i cant find the "Reltek HD Audio" device any where else in device manager.

It's just had a freash install of the OS and is still not working reliably.

It's got the latest Win 7 x64 drivers from RelTek

Is it possible to install a second hard disk in E4300?

Earlier the option used to be available whilst configuring the E4300 online to add a second 1.8inch hard disk. Now it is no longer there. Can the same be ordered through a Dell rep? What exactly is it that comes when you order this?

I will be grateful if someone can share this info. This will be the deal maker/breaker for me on the E4300.

Dell :: Added Second Hard Disk Studio 17

Jan 15, 2009

My Studio originally had a Toshiba, 5400 rpm 250 gb drive in it.

I bought a Western Digital 7200 rpm 360 gb drive to add to my laptop.
I also got the carrier assembly from Dell and I installed the Western Digital into the Studio 17 in drive bay 1 , and put the Toshiba into Drive bay 2.

I had made an image of my C drive with Vista on it, and after installing the new hard drive I put the image onto the Western Digital drive, and all seemed to be well, I booted up and get into Vista, but now I see the C:

local hard drive shows exactly what I had before, and Vista is showing my new drive as Drive F: but it also has all my files on it exactly as the original C image that I made .....
