HP/Compaq :: G60-120us- Freakin Mouse Button- It's So Loud And Clicks So Loud As Well
Feb 2, 2010
My wife got this HP G60-120us notebook computer. It's about two years old now. I'm planning on getting her a new laptop so I can get this one. The only thing that I really do not like about this laptop is the freakin mouse button. It's so loud and clicks so loud as well. What I'm using now is my old Dell laptop and I love the mouse button so quiet and smooth unlike the HP. Is there anyway to make this sound quiet? Like open it up and spray some WD-40? J/K, is all HP's like this?
i hear a click from the left side of my hdx16 and that same click always happens when i shut down the system and its not from the hard drive i checked it is something near the fan could that be hp protect smart or something. and another thing the fan goes very loud when i install the battery with ac on is that normal?
My HP DV2000 yesterday started making a mind-numbingly loud buzzing noise (I have been using earplugs) as soon as it was turned on. From my research, the best I can tell is that it's being caused by a loose or faulty speaker cable. I've tried all of the obvious software fixes (drivers, system restore, muting, etc.) and nothing affects the noise. If I pull out the power cable, the pitch lowers, which I assume is because of the reduced power coming from the battery versus the power cable.
I have a reasonable amount of mechanical aptitude and have performed a number of hardware repairs on desktop computers. Does anyone know if detaching the speaker cable (if that's the solution) would be a simple enough thing to do, or should I just not even try, and take it to a professional? I've looked at the maintenance and repair manual, and it does look like a fair amount of work...
I recently bought a 500GB/7200 RPM hard drive to my laptop and I decided to install Windows RC 64 bit. Before doing the hard drive update, I had installed the 7 RC 32 bit since it came out.
Now, I can't recall when I had the 7 RC 32bit that the laptop's fan was running on full blast after sleep/stand-by. It is also loud when you start-up the computer from a restart or after a shut-down. The fan speeds down to a quiet speed/rpm after...I'd say 2-3 minutes.
I installed everything listed on HP's website for my laptop (drivers and such after installing 7 RC 64bit): [url]
I noticed that the Nvidia driver on HP's website was not a recent one, so I hopped on Nvidia's website to get a newer driver instead (186.03 I believe).
I have my laptop set to Power saving's mode and I only bump it to Balanced when I'm doing something heavy (like iTunes encoding, etc).
I did check to see if maybe my anti-virus program that's installed (avast...AVG didn't install when I went to 64) was doing scans or such, but it isn't. Well, actually I take that back...does avast do a very slow/quiet scan in the background? I see the HDD status light blinks steady, but when I pause avast, there is not steady blinking.
I have a VPCF11S1E and yesterday I left my vaio on without being plugged in, so it put himself 'asleep'. I couldn't turn him on but did the battery out-holding-on-button-plug-in-push-on-battery-in-trick and it worked. But since then I have a major problem.
My fan is going crazy and it seems like I have over 9000 programs on ( ). From when i completely shut of my vaio, my fan starts (loudly) when I hit the log-in page and never stops until I shut it off or put him in standby,
when I start my vaio from standby, it takes +30 seconds before my fan starts again loudly. It keeps blowing loudly even when I don't run any programs
Is anyone else experiencing real high fan noise while playing a game? Even with the sound on it's clearly hearable and really annoying and continues going. As soon as I exit the game it's over, so it probably involves temp & CPU clock. My temps are about ~70C when I exit
I would love a 15k mac pro hd when I order my new system....but are they loud? I have 2 raptors in RAID in my XPS and while its not loud...it's not quiet either. Anyone own a 15k drive and can speak for it in the Mac Pro?
I just received my brand new XPS 13 yesterday and followed the quick start instructions. Plugged it in and pressed on the power button. As soon as the power came on, the fan started blowing and is so loud I cant believe this is normal. I decided to convert from my MacBook, so I'm new to Dell... is this normal? It's so loud, I can't ignore it.
I got a new laptop in about June or so, and it ran great. I have McAfee for anti-virus, if that helps.
About 2 weeks ago, my computer started to slow down. A lot. My typing would lag on the screen, and some of the letters won't even show up.
I also seem to get an insane amount of pop ups on whatever sites I go on, and I get about 5 popups every hour, on the hour. When I scan, though, I get nothing.
Now, this is the worst part. My computer will completely freeze a lot. When it does, I'll wait a minute to see what happens.
Then, if I click the screen a few times, a single, insanely loud beep will come from the computer. This will happen a few times before I can actually use my computer, and I have to re-boot often.
My computer is insanely slow, like I said before, and it takes forever for it to finish starting up. Half the time, it'll freeze before I can even log in.
If it helps, this started around the time when I signed up for Facebook, if that has to do with anything. I've tried to do virus scans many many times, and I used the Dell Automated PC TuneUp tool. But, nothing seems to work.
Just got my e6400. Thanks for the help selecting it over the past few months. I'm really happy with it apart from one small issue.
It seems that occasionally the fan runs at top speed and is pretty noisy in the process.
This happens even when the machine is idle. For example yesterday I was sat with nothing open on the table beside me whilst I worked on my T61p, and suddenly the fan starting running at full speed for 5mins or so.
I can't see any pattern to this, but naturally if there is a problem, I'd like to get it sorted out sooner rather than later.
I've noticed that when I shut down the computer, just before everything turns off I hear a loud(ish) click from the back of the computer. Same sort of noise as when you turn on a light switch, maybe a little sharper.
At first I thought it might be the speakers, but not so sure. Anyone else have this? It might just be hardware turning off
I own a Dell Inspiron N5010. I am having a problem with the mouse, both the touchpad, and when I plug an external mouse in (although the problem seems to occur with somewhat less frequency when I am using the external mouse). The computer is having trouble recognizing mouse clicks. Sometimes it recognizes them properly, sometimes it responds to left clicks as if they were right clicks, and sometimes it does not respond to them at all. The problem seems to be worse when I am using a web browser, but it occurs consistently.
I searched but couldn't find anything on this. I had an 8600 processor originally and got a QX9300 for my M6400. Nothing else changed (yet) and I'm running W7. The fan hardly spun up to an audible degree with the 86, but now with the QX I hear the fan all the time...
Is this normal? I mean, I know it's a quad core vs. a dual core and the clock speed is slightly faster (2.53G vs. 2.4G). But I can just have the laptop sitting doing nothing and the fan is kicked up pretty much all the time....
I had my dell 1530 xps laptop since june and recenty I been hearing a loud humming noise on the right side of the laptop. It sounds like its the hardrive humming loudly but then I put my ear on it and move up near the fan and it seems its making noise there also.
It comes on randomly, when im surfing the net its fine most of the time, when im running games, the computer starts this loud humming noise on the right side ofthe computer.
It can also start doing this when im just surfing the net. And what I noticed also is when the system starts to make the humming noise, the fans kick in atthe same time if its not spinning at the moment.......
