Toshiba Laptop Charger Is Making Weird Noise


My toshiba laptop's charger is making a weird noise and wont work. I have a toshiba tecra m5 laptop. About 1 week ago its charger started making a high pitched squealing noise. When it makes this noise it stops working. If i shake the wire for a minute or 2 it stops and works again. Today, i have been shaking it for 20 minutes and it still wont work.

Sometimes when i plug the cord into my computer, it will charge, but lately it hasn't been working. & The adapter keeps making a ringing noise. What should i do?

Computer Is Making Weird Noises

The noise is like "da nuh. Da nuh", like the first "da nuh" is lower pitched and the second "da nuh" is higher pitched. If that doesn't help its the noise it makes when it has a usb plugged in and then taken out. It's an hp laptop with vista.

Hard Drive Making Noise

One of my hard drives (a samsung 160gb sata) started to make a constant noise, like if something got stuck in a fan, and it keeps getting louder the more time the pc is running. I have disconnected the drive for now, what should i do with it, its not under warranty any more.

Hard Drive Making Clicking Noise

I recently got a new 500gb seagate sata drive. I installed windows xp 64 no problem. Then i used gparted live cd to create a small 16gb partition at the end so i could install vista 64. The installation took forever, i've installed vista 32 on another computer before so i thought maybe it was because it was 64bit and not 32. So after it finally finished i couldn't help but notice that vista was running slow and taking forever to boot up. I have a q6600, 8800gtx2, 4gb or ram (but only had a 2gb strip in for installation since i read 4gb screws it up) so my system can easily handle it. What i did notice though is that my hard drive was making a certain clicking noise when it was in action. I rebooted into xp 64 and everything was working fine with no clicking, went back to vista and clicking began. Oh yea, when i went to install vista it said that my drive was about to fail soon. I then used the seagate dos utility to check my entire drive, it passed, but i couldn't help but notice that the last 11% took 2 hours while the 89% took an hour. But it said it passed so now i don't know what to do. I'll probably end up installing vista 64 on my older 250gb ide drive i have on my computer also but would rather have it on the new drive. Any suggestions? Oh and sorry for the short story!

Edit: what i've done since is reformat the new partition and run an error check on it, still clicking and working slow.

Monitor Shaking And Making Screeching Noise

Ok this problem happened about a month ago. All of a sudden my computer monitor started shaking and making a screeching noise. I just turned it off and on, and it worked fine. It didn't do this again until like 2 weeks later. Then the screen got all warped and i couldn't even see anything anymore. No matter how much i unplugged it, checked to see if appliances were effecting it, nothing worked and now it smells of burnt rubber and is dead. I got a new monitor yesterday from my friend. No its not exactly new but i needed a monitor regardless and so i took what i could get. I have only had this monitor for a day and its starting to shake and make odd noises like my old monitor. Seriously *** is wrong with my monitors? What could be causing this?

Laptop Charger Heats Up

Well, this isn't really normal for me. My laptop is an acer aspire 5738z, i have had it for a year and 32 days now. A few months ago, in early april, my original laptop charger's wire got corrupted and broken, so i bought a new one 5 days later. It was fine. Until a few days ago. It heats up a lot, at least 2 minutes after i plug it in and smells as if it is burning! The metal tip that actually connects the charger to the monitor is always very very hot, i really need help. The fan doesn't work either. I cleaned it, i put my hand close to it and felt a very small breeze, so i just don't know. I always unplug my charger once this happens, and i plug it back in once the battery dies, i normally take it out when the battery is at about 50%, then about 4 or 5 hours later, i have to plug it back in. Does anybody have any advice? I'm very worried right now. Normally it's on my bed or lap, i used to always have it on a desk before this happened, but it started about 9 days ago, i still used it nowhere else but the desk, if that's any help.

Hp Pavilion Dv3t-200 Laptop Charger Problem

I have a problem with my charger or laptop. I really don't know which one at the moment. I have an hp pavilion dv3t-200 windows 7 home premium laptop. I noticed recently that whenever i plug in my charger the led light doesn't come on anymore even though the laptop is charging. I find that when i move around the charger a bit, the light starts to turn on and off and blinks. I also notice that when my battery power gets low, my computer starts to slow down or freeze and this never happened before until i upgraded from my vista to 7. Anyone have any idea what might be wrong?

Ram - Laptop Made A Rapid Clicking Noise

I have an ibm 600e series thinkpad and i put in 256mb of ram (originally it was only 128). This ram is brand new, out of the package, only that when i put it in, my laptop made a rapid clicking noise and it just stays on the turn on screen saying ibm thinkpad and the kb of ram in the upper lefthand corner. It never gets past this stage and i don't know why. I looked up my ram and it's compatible with my laptop. Is there a button i need to push or something i need to do in order for this to work?

2. Plug the ac back in (leaving the battery out)

3. Gently move the connector from the ac adapter that is in the laptop gently from side to side, and then in circles. Very gently and watch your lights on your laptop; see if they blink or show any sign of life. 1. Remove the battery from the laptop (unplug it from the ac prior to removing it)

Dell, Toshiba, Or Hp Laptop?

I'm in the market for a laptop (my first) to last me at least 5 years with no problems or need for repair. I'm interested in purchasing either a dell, toshiba, or an hp (originally i wanted a macbook, but i've heard that that's not the best choice for a biology major-the compatible software is not as good?), But i don't know which one is best. I'm willing to pay up to $1200 as long as it has the following specifications:

-Built-in webcam
-Long-lasting battery (at least 5 hours)
-Best processor (fast with good performance)
-4gb memory
-At least 16" screen
-It must be quiet
-Must last me at least 5 years
-Dvd/cd drive (no blu-ray necessary)

Also, i'm not a big gamer (i like sims and nancy drew games, but other than that i really am not big into computer games). Please let me know if this request is even possible or if i need to lower my expectations! But please help me figure out which laptop to purchase!

Toshiba Laptop Keyboard Problem

I have a problem with my toshiba laptop keyboard. It starts typing z or / or by itself. Sometimes it is zzzzzz (tens of z) of !~! (Tens of ). For example if i try to type "hello" it will type as "hezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzlzzzzzzzzzlzzzo". Sometimes the up arrow or down arrow or page-down is pressed continuously. I have norton antivirus. I have run 10-20 antivirus, spyware and malware tools. They could not find anything. In a forum they said that this might be a keyboard hardware problem. Can you please let me know what should be done?

Toshiba Laptop Keys Not Working

A few of my keys have stopped working on the keyboard of my toshiba laptop after a dreaded water spill. When i spilled the water the laptop was off, and i immediately turned the laptop over and left it to dry. When i turned it back on, initially the a key didn't work and probably a lot of others but the a was the only key i noticed as my password has an a in it. A few days later when i turned it on the a key must have dried out more and it had started to work, allowing me to log on. However, it has been 5 days since i spilled the (small amount of) water on the keyboard and these keys do not work [q, x, win, fn, ctrl]

The x key works if i hold the key down for a long while, but the others do not seem to do this. Obviously the kb is not trashed as it still works for most keys and the a key started working again. Does anyone have any advice on how i can take apart and clean or make sure it is dry? Or what has caused the keys to not work after they are dry, i have taken a few caps off and the toshiba laptop looks pretty water proof (lots of rubber caps, and nothing looking rustable/corrosive-able) i could post pictures if needed or has anyone had experience with tosh keyboards who could help me. Replacing is a last resort as i priced up a new keyboard online at 50~. That doesn't seem worth it .

Toshiba Laptop M100 Problem

Toshiba laptop m100. I've opened a dos box while surfing the net etc. The dos box will show blank letters (in other words, if i typed >mememe at the dos prompt, spaces would quickly fill up over loading the buffer. Tried moving the ram from one slot to the other. Before, it wasn't spaces, it was l's and 3's (maybe more)

So, you see, moving the ram over "helped" but did not resolve the problem. Ps: i have checked for all manners of spyware etc. And the behavior continues. Yes, i do not mind wiping the laptop clean. But is it a software issue? It looks like a hardware issue. Pss: to change the ram from one slot to the other, i had to remove the keyboard and then replace it. I could not find any water or coca cola damage to the keyboard. Anything else worth trying?
