Happy computers are quiet. Here are some which aren’t.

Saturday, July 27, 2013 by DrJBHL | Discussion: Personal Computing


As part of the series on hard drives, I found this article which might be of assistance in helping you diagnose things when you hear them. I hope you don’t, of course.

This is a good article about the sounds sick computers make: LINK.

The sounds are those of a sick hard drive, fans, and speakers.

Hope it helps.

But you know they can make these sounds, but as soon as you take them to the pc doctor, the sounds disappear. I hate when that happens! lol!

Still it is a good find Seth!!

One of my HDDs was making clicking sounds a few years back. That happened whenever I tried to access data from it. I didn't need no article to know that I should replace it.

Still, thanks for the continued stream of posts.
