My puter keeps oinking.

Postby rickshaw92 » Fri Sep 28, 2012 1:00 am

Like a police cruser does when they want your attention without using a siren. It started a few weeks ago and started up about half an hour ago as I was watching a DVD. (Spooks season 4) It does this when connected to internet and when not. It stopped about 5 munites ago but was going for a while. Every 10 seconds to be exact. Anyone know WTF?

It is one of the fans inside bumping against the fan mount - turn it off, open it up, blow the dust and shit off of any fans you see inside

Dunno but it just started up again. The noise is electronic.

I would suggest that you check the yellow pages (or whatever you islanders use there in brit-land) and find a small owner-operator computer repair shop and bring your puter' to them. Also ask if they can wave the inspection fee if you end up getting whatever repair you need done

Seems I need a new hard drive. I have only had the puter for 15 months. Its a lap top but I don't take it anywhere. I use it for watchin DVD's, playin music and surfin the web. How is it that I need a new hard drive? I don't download stuff from the internet as I havent a clue as to how that is done.

Fuckin hard drive.

Could be just banging it around, could be just a crap hard drive / laptop to begin w/. Maybe don't be so obsessive when watching the porn after it's fixed.

spring the extra cash and go with a solid state drive (ssd). they are all but immune to the perils that slightly bumping a regular hard disk drive inflict. some brands are better than others, but with any hard disk drive that you put wear and tear by lugging it around a lot it's pretty much just a game of russian roulette as far as how long it lasts.

I had the Oinking too. For me it sounds more like a frog croak but it is not the Hard Drive (pretty sure...I backed it up just in case) it comes through the speaker and no sound is heard at all when I hit "mute".

I have no idea what it is.

do you have a mic on the puter that's on? feedback, maybe? i'm not sure, but i think even a fucked up sound card/sound drivers would just make sound not work instead of work wierd. or someone who doesn't like you has taken the time to infect your machine with a program designed to mildly annoy you while you are on the internet.

You could program it to make noises too. It's the disk drive motors in this case:

Back up your data with on an external hard drive. That way you can access your information on another computer if your current one dies.
