Dell XPS 15 9530 :: Windows 8.1 - Laptop Doesn't Wake From Sleep When Open Lid

Jan 5, 2014

It is a XPS 15 9530 and when set to sleep when the lid is closed the unit will not wake when the lid is opened.  If I then press the power button it lights up and I hear a faint sound for about 20 sec (fan, disk, nothing weird) and then the sound stops.  I never see anything on the screen. If I press the power button, again, then it says the PC wasn't shutdown correctly.  Next, it runs some diagnostics for about 10 seconds and then it starts normally.

Dell :: Noise From Laptop When Plugged In?

Mar 27, 2009

I just recently purchased a Dell Studio 17. I am very happy with my purchase, however, I have started to notice a high pitched whining noise sometimes when I have it plugged in for charging.

If I disconnect the charger from the laptop, the noise goes away and sometimes it goes away on its own..

HP/Compaq :: New Laptop Dv5- Open The Disc Recovery Manager, And The Computer Suddenly Logs Off

Jan 29, 2009

i got my new dv5 last night and ive got a problem. The first time it happened was when i tried to make one of those back up DVD's, i open the disc recovery manager, and the computer suddenly logs off, and im reverted back to the welcome screen where i need to click my name to log back in. Every program that was running simply dissapears. I was like 'crap... i guess i cant make any back up discs'. But then it happened again when i tried to install WinRAR, it was corrupted becuase i copied the files from another computer and after i press ok in the error box it does the same thing.. 3 times i had to re-download a file i was downloading at that time. I guess it only happens when theres an error. I immediatly uninstalled norton and most of the bloatware so it cant be due to that. So now im paranoid about opening any file hoping that it wouldnt log off like that suddenly and lose my work.

Dell :: Laptop Power Adapter Sparking Noise

Sep 5, 2009

just got my Refurb Dell XPS studio 16 3 days ago, and there was a weird sparking noise(nothing visible) coming from the brick.

So, I disconnected the adapter and plugged it back in. That reduced the noise, to where I can only hear it if I stick my ear to the brick.

I called Dell Tech support and they said they will send a replacement. So, 2 questions

1) Is it normal to hear that sound if you put your ear next to the adapter(It's like some sparks are going on inside .....

Dell Inspiron N5050 :: Laptop Will Not Boot / Load - Clicking Noise

Dec 10, 2014

I have a Inspirion N5050 laptop. A few weeks ago, it started running slow and Adchoices ads appeared. I removed them. I ran a scan using AVG, which detected nothing. I shut down the laptop as a precaution. Now it will not load Windows. I press the power button, the dell logo appears, then I hear what I think is the hard drive click, then the screen goes dark for a second, then the logo and a click and so on and so on. I am able to get to the menus with f2 and f12, what to do next. Safe mode will not respond ( I cannot get into it).

Sony :: Fan Noise For Vaio Z820db Laptop

Mar 5, 2010

I have 13 inch sony Z 820db laptop not very long ago, for some reason the fan makes quite a bit of noise compare to other models that i own(sony ns190d laptop). Is this suppose to be normal for this laptop? Does anyone else who has this laptop feels the fan noise for this laptop is sufficiently higher compare to other laptops? I can really feel the air pumping out when i place my hands near the ventilation and i only use the laptop for surfing on the net. no heavy application running what so ever. Also have a question about the battery life. They said the standard battery life could last up to 5.5 hours, but mines only last 3 and half hours even just surfing on net.

Dell :: Crackling And Popping Noises

Jan 13, 2009

I have inspiron 9300 and when I play mp3's on the laptop it makes a crackling and poping noise every 1-3 seconds, when it does this it pauses the song about 1/2-1 seconds each time it makes this noise. It also does this when I play my ripped dvd's on the harddrive and playing video games, it pauses the movies and games 1/2-1 seconds seconds during the crackling and popping noises. I can temporarily fix this sometimes when I take the harddrive out for about 8-9 hrs and put back in again, but after I reboot or turn it off and turn it on again the crackling and popping noises come back. When I play dvd's or cd music in the optical drive this doesnt happen. What can I do to fix this?

Dell :: Studio 1535 Popping Sounds

Dec 4, 2009

i know the 1535 is a little old, but starting just a couple or days ago whenever i play music or anything using the sound card theres this popping, laggy kind of noise.

ive tried using speakers, earphones and the built in speakers and it persists. this lead me to suspect the sound card itself.

Ive reinstalled the IDT drivers, and tried uninstalling it and using vista's default drivers too, and the problem persists. my warranty passed a few months ago and anyway im not in the same region as where i brought the computer.

i know there might not be much i can do without taking the computer compeltely apart but i would appreciate a few ideas. i have taken the back panel off and cleaned the dust.

HP Pavilion N229tx :: Grinding Noise Every 3 Sec At Left Side Of Laptop

Aug 25, 2014

I just bought an HP touchsmart pavilion N229tx last week and I noticed now that it started creating grinding noises every 3 seconds whenever my laptop is on and running. The noise is coming from near the vent where the air is supposed to come out.
 
Also when I bought the laptop and opened it the first time I keep having the fan error upon startup saying that it had found that a fan is not operational I think it is error 90B. this now happens everytime I turn on the laptop.

HP :: Hard Drive Is Making A Loud Noise On Envy 17 Laptop

Nov 10, 2014

I have owned my hp envy 17 laptop for almost 2 years now. Recently my computer has been making a really loud noise and it seems it is working a lot harder than it needs to be. I suspect the fan or the hard drive is the culprit but I have convinced myself it is the hard drive. 
 
When I start up my computer the loud noise begins almost immediately after startup. This noise sounds like the computer is working as hard as it possibly can, almost making a grinding noise. Even after the computer has booted up, this noise continues for another minute or two before it stops, then my laptop becomes quiet. What puzzles me, and leads me to believe it is the hard drive, is the fact my computer get unreasonably hot when the noise occurs; it never used to do this before. 
 
This situation is something I have never heard of before. My laptop for some reason ,when it is moved or bumped, even the slightest, start to "rev" and the hard drive roars; it does this for five minutes or so. It also does this when the laptop is closed, and in "sleep mode"; the slightest bump lets it off like a baby. I suspect that there is a switch, flap or wire that is not attached properly and when moved it triggers the hard drive. 
 
The main thing I do when the sound occurs is I close the laptop lid which puts it in sleep mode and turns off the hard drive, silencing it for the time being. This solution I came across by accident; I turned my laptop sideways when the sound occurs and the sound stops until I put the laptop upright again(Laptop is open).

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 Crackling/Popping Audio

Dec 6, 2009

I have the system listed in my signature running Windows 7 Ultimate and I am having the worst time with pops and crackles sporadically throughout songs during playback. I originally thought it might have been iTunes so I have tried a few other programs with the same results. It almost seems as though it cracks every time my computer has to "think".

Dell :: Studio XPS 1640 Sound Cracking/popping

May 17, 2010

I don't remember when it started but my sound cracks and pops when I play games (NBA 2K10, WoW...) and sometimes when I'm watching youtube videos. However, it's fine when I just play a song on iTunes. Well actually, it pops a bit when I first start the song, but then the popping disappears, which leads me to think that the problem is somehow related to CPU/GPU usage.

So I've been on the web for quite a while now trying to find solutions...and here's what I've tried:

1) Using headphones (sound pops in headphones as well)

2) Turning off the wireless adapter (sound still pops with wireless off)

3) Disabling all enhancements under "playback devices" (still pops)

4) Checking IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers for Ultra DMA mode (got 4 ATA Channels, ATA Channel 0 is in Ultra DMA Mode 6, ATA Channel 1 is in Ultra DMA Mode 5, ATA Channels 4 and 5 are not in any mode)

5) Updating IDT High Definition Audio driver (updated, still pops; read somewhere that rolling back the driver would solve the problem, but at that point I've already reinstalled a newer IDT HD audio driver, which means I can't roll back to the desired date...)

6) Tried using a different HD audio driver (tried downloading a realtek HD audio driver, but I guess realtek = IDT?? same problem occurred)

6a) Eventually found some HD audio driver for some HP laptop (driver is now called High Definition Audio Device (under device manager => sound, video and game controllers))(sound still pops)

Specs:
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit (6.1, Build 7600)
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8600 @ 2.40Ghz (2 CPUs), ~2.4Ghz
Memory: 4096RAM
Graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670
Bought: Around July/August 2009

Dell Inspiron 15R :: Windows Mobility Center Keeps Popping Up

Jul 22, 2012

I'm using a new Dell Inspiron 15R and ever since I got the laptop, my Windows mobility center keeps popping up without my intervention.  This can happen once every 2-3 seconds which means I cannot do anything on the laptop without being interrupted.

There are suggestions to disable it on the registry but I want a fix, besides, I disabled it and the keystroke 'x' is still being hit which means I cant type on notepad or Word without this problem.

HP/Compaq :: Popping Sounds On HDX18

Aug 31, 2009

I have an HDX18 with IDT HD Sound (Vista Ultimate 64-bit). I've noticed an annoying popping sound with most applications. For instance, when using Trillian instant messenger, when I receive a message the speakers make a distinct pop at the start of the "ding" and at the end. The sound itself is clear, but always initiates and concludes with some kind of pop or click.

This is the same for all Windows sounds (which I've now disabled because of the audio annoyance). I tried disabling the Dolby effects through the IDT control panel, but that made things worse!
