Pease help, as I my computer skills are very basic.
Two months ago, my computer, whilst idling on windows XP
wallpaper shut down, leaving the screen blank (with message--
"system needs to re- boot".) I had the r-boot recovery f/disk,
but it kept coming up :- insert master CD. Like a fool, I had not made copies. I gave computer to repairer, who told me that the hard drive had gone.? Whilst he ordered replacement, which he said would be O.K. to upgrade from original 40Gb to 80Gb, I contacted Packard Bell, who sent me the 4 master CDs. I gave him these and got computer back, at a cost of

Hi,

Does it sound like something is touching one of the spinning fans inside or is the new hard drive making this noise?

Hi There,
No, it is not fan or hard drive noise.
The sound of electrical connections, with the speed of a machine gun.

Hi,

If this noise started right after receiving the system back from repair, I would call them and get them to fix the problem, since they caused it!

Hi,

If you want to add to this thread, please select the REPLY TO TOPIC link instead of editing a previous post. This way I can tell what new info you added.

I am assuming this is what you added to your first post!
quote:
...Is it at all possible, that he has not installed the Master CDs properly.? Prior to new HDD, I had about 70% free space and now I only have 60% on double the size HDD. I have also noted that looking in the HDD Setup Format, the disk allocation is set to max bytes (4096) and not default as reccommended by the system?...
I think these are questions you should ask the person who did the upgrade, I do not know what was re-installed on the new drive. Perhaps the Packard Bell CDs include more stuff than the original setup?

Have you contacted the tech who did the upgrade about the noise?

Hi there again.
The master cd s sent, are those which were pre - installed in the computer when new.
As for contacting the guy who did the installation of new HDD, I dont want him within a mile of my system ever again. After taking my cheque, he told me he had only repaired three computers in the last year.!

Regards,

ROSS.

Hi,

Well, to figure out what is causing the noise, you will have to open the case (if you're comfortable doing so) and hear where it's coming from.

About the disk space, you can still call the guy to find out what he did, can't you?

Let me know what you find
