Hard Drive Making Clicking Sound

I installed a 2nd hard drive on my computer about 3 months ago. I have it as the slave drive and i'm just using for storage space. I have it partitioned and formatted. It was working fine for about a month and a half then one time restarting my compuer it started making this clicking sound and now the computer doesn't boot up anymore. The comp will boot up once in a blue moon if i get lucky and the drive doesn't make the clicking sound. One time when the comp was able to boot up, the drive showed up and then another time it didn't. I know i have the ribbon cables connected properly and the jumpers are correct as far as i know. The slave jumpr is on the 2nd from the right, and the master jumper is on the master drive 3rd from the right. I know there is something wrong with the new drive cuz when i unplug the power the comp boots up fine. Any suggestions.

Computer Is Making An Annoying Whirring Sound

I got my new computer up and running and while i really like it, there's a very annoying "whirr" sound. I can't tell where exactly it's from, i have 3 fans installed, and an arctic cooling freezer pro 7, however could it also be coming from the hd?

Dropped Ps2 Making Scratching Sound When Read Discs

After dropping my ps2 yesterday, it will no longer read dvds. It's making a strange scratchy type noise when it tries to read the dvd and proceeds to go straight into the system browser. I've opened it up to have a look inside - it's well out of warranty - but nothing seems to be loose/broken. Any ideas guys?

Ps: it doesn't display the infamous "disk read error" message.

Keyboard And Mouse - No Input Device In Windows

Recently unplugged my ps2 mouse and keyboard and attached usb mouse and keyboard. Everything worked fine. However, returned to my ps2 mouse and keyboard yesterday and they dont work. I have no input device in windows (although both mouse and keyboard operate until windows loads, so i am able to access pc setup and boot screens). In haste, i tried to reinstall windows, but now i am stuck in the middle of installation and cant press ok to continue.

Mouse And Keyboard Freeze When Windows Xp Starts Up

Sometimes when windows xp professional starts up on my computer, the mouse will not work properly. It is just frozen at the welcome screen. However, i can still use the keyboard to login. The mouse is a ps/2 mouse. After windows finishes login in and shows the desktop, the mouse is still frozen. Sometimes the mouse will function properly on the welcome screen. However when my computer enters standby mode the mouse and keyboard are both usually frozen when i try to bring the computer out of standby mode and the computer is unresponsive. I think this has also happened after a few minutes of not using the computer while the computer was running.

Keyboard Input Creates A Clicking Sound

Does anyone know of a way to disable the small "clicks" that windows (i assume) makes when receiving input from the keyboard? Although i can only hear them at very high volumes, i would still like to know how to get rid of them.

Keyboard Works In Windows Xp Pro But Not In Windows Vista

After cleaning up my hard drive yesterday, my keyboard would not work in vista ultimate 64bit. I tried 2 other keyboards. Neither of which would work either. 2 were ps2 keyboards and one was usb. Now, each keyboard was identified at post and would work in the bios. Now here is the really weird part. I decided i would go ahead and do a fresh intall of vista, as i was about due for it anyway. Just in case. I also cleared cmos just in case i somehow change something in the bios that was causing this (though i doubt it since the keyboard worked in bios). So, i reinstalled vista, and was able to use the keyboard to put in the activation key. So, i thought i was all set. However, once windows fully booted, none of the keyboards would work again. How is it possible that this problem carried over to a fresh install?

At this point, i became very frustrated. I decided to try installing windows xp pro. The xp installed, and now all of the keyboards work perfectly in windows. This would be fine, but i've got use to vista now, and would prefer to use it. Anyone have any idea what this might be? Could it have anything to do with installing vista too many times, so it started to disable functions.

No Beep, High Pitch Sound, No Keyboard Light

My win xp sp2 system was working (for years, unchanged) one day, next day (after normal system shutdown via start button for night) it won't start. During cold start, the ps seems to hesitate (~10-20 seconds) and make a bit of a high pitch sound, then the power 'comes on. '

- Video, memory out = no beeps. - Video out, memory in = no beeps. - Video in, memory out = no beeps. - Video in, memory in = no beeps. When system has power:
- No keyboard light. - No mouse light. - Can hear hd spinning
- Case fans come on
- Cpu fan comes on
- Dvd has power (tray in/out). I even tried unplugging the cpu fan for a brief moment. It heated up, so i thought this indicated the cpu isn't dead. I've replaced (with new), the video card and the mobo, thinking it was one and then the other during my attempt at diagnosing. I'm venturing to guess that my ps is failing (although not total failure yet). Sound like a reasonable explanation?

Windows Sound Issue: No Playback Devices

Im working on my friend's computer here. I gave it a fresh install of xp sp2 about 3 weeks ago, and the sound was working just dandy, then all of a sudden, the sound stopped working and was replaced by motherboard beeps =p

Obviously the first thing to check was the drivers. Windows said they were working properly, so i uninstalled the device, and let windows reinstall the drivers. Same deal, said they installed fine. Looking into the sound properties in control panel, it says "no playback devices" "no recording devices" and "no midi playback devices" all in grey. I figured his onboard audio card had just died, so i brought over my spare sound card, a soundblaster audigy 2, in great condition, which i know works. Installed the drivers from creative's website, same exact thing. Device manager says "installed and working properly" and sound properties says no devices installed. I then scheduled a disk scan and restarted the computer, it didnt find any errors. Does anyone know whats going on? Sounds like a registry problem of sorts. Or some obscure windows problem. Really dont want to re-reinstall windows, if possible.

Creative X-fi Usb Sound Card Windows 7

I've had this for about a year now and its worked great. I bought it originally as a way to pass through optical from my computer to my receiver. Now my previous setup is long gone and i still use this external card with my krk rp 5 g2's. Its worked great but i never once installed the creative software. Today i was browsing creative website and i noticed an updated driver for windows 7 for this device updated sep 2nd. I decided to give it a shot and download it. First thing i noticed was the crystallizer and cmss 3d. Both add some "flavor" to the music which i actually enjoy. Second thing i noticed was hey! I can use the knob on my sound-card after a year of having it to control the sound but alas, theres now one huge annoying issue. Snap, crackle, and pop! Every so often at random during music playback (windows media player, pandora one, etc) i would hear this. Is there any available fix or unofficial drivers to alleviate this? I want to be able to use this damn knob. But not at the cost of annoying cracking.

Windows 7 Drivers For An Older Creative Sound Blaster

I just installed 7 on my main rig as a dual boot and i was wondering why they left out drivers for my creative sound blaster live! Platinum with a live drive ir. I have a intel g31 series motherboard and the on board audio to put in plainly sucks. Do drivers exist for this card for windows 7 or do i have to take it out and use the crappy on board audio? This really surprises me as xp picks up the card no problem.

Dell Inspiron 1000 Sound & Video Drivers Windows 7

I installed windows 7 on my dell inspiron 1000 and cant find the sound or video drivers any where. Please help?

Answer:-
Windows 7 and vista don't need the drivers came with the computer (for windows xp). All you have to do is going to windows update by typing "windows update" in the search box of the start menu and let the computer search for needed updates. These updates include video and sound drivers for your laptop.

Keyboard / Mouse Unresponsive

I had put in my usb flash drive, then my computer rebooted, so the computer boots back up, and now the keyboard and mouse functions do not work, i can no longer log into windows. I thought maybe it was a random thing, so i reboot again and it does the same thing, no response from my input devices. So i check to make sure these devices are still working by hooking them up to my other pc, sure enough, they still work. So then i test to see if i can even get into the bios. Well, thankfully i can, so it must be something while booting to windows after the post, cause the computer sees the hardware and lets me use it during setup, but not on the windows login screen. I even tried different ports, and different keyboard and mice ( ps2 and usb ) and they all will not work on this now dysfunctional pc. Can somebody help me as to why this is happening? This is rather strange, i changed no setting. Why working only in bios?

Keyboard / Mouse Freeze On Xp

The mouse always works until you try to type something, and then the keyboard and mouse quit working. The computer itself is not frozen. Sometimes the computer has to be restarted 5+ times to get it to work right. Do you think it is an issue with the keyboard, or the ps/2 ports? I could not find a virus. It has a cheap lite-on keyboard and roswill mouse.

Mouse Headset And Keyboard Under 30 Each

I'm looking at either the microsoft habu or the razer diamondback, how different is the diamondback in terms of shape since i found the habu to be very comfortable? Headset wise i'm looking at the plantronics gamecom 367 or the sennheiser pc151 headset i don't really like logitech since the last two headsets i've had were logitech and their sound quality has been pretty awful. This combined with the complete lack of durability (one of the earpieces in my current headset died randomly and the other one fell off and refused to reattach) has put me off logitech. I was looking at the saitek eclipse ii or something in that sort of price range. I'm only willing to pay up to 30 for any of the peripherals.

Bluetooth Keyboard / Mouse

I have a customer looking for a wireless keyboard and mouse but he needs it to go 16 feet without any issues. I think the bt ones can do that no problem but they all seem to cost $200! Does anyone know if there is a decent kit in the $100 range? If not are there non-bt models like the 2. 4ghz ones that can do that range?

I saw some of the logitech wave kits with 2. 4ghz but in the reviews cust said they started having problems over 10 feet. Any suggestions would be great he doesn't want to spend $200+ on a kb/mouse but he needs the range!
