CPU Problem

Postby Hadijah » Thu, 15 Jun 2006 2:09 pm

Hi,
My compact presario desktop giving me problem as soon as I change name in an account and surf internet at the same time, after which the screen shows error and can't reboot my PC. Later when I try to on the PC it has got "knocking sound" from the CPU. May I know where can I get it repaired as my warranty is over. According to my friend it could be due to PC card that need to be replaced, is it true?Please help.... :???:

Bring it to the HP/compaq repair center at Alexandria.

I've called them from my office, they ask me to call them again when I'm next to my pc, so they can guide me what to do next before I send it for repair.
Thanks for your reply :)

Knocking sound ...soundsmore like a fan or your hard disk.
Start by taking the cover of and trying to locate the noise,
I heard hard disk produce a knocking noise before. The read write head gets stuck and hits the end of it's travel only return to park and try again. hence the knock.
Don;t ask me how i know but i've got a screw driver for everything.
As a rule things won;t get better on their own. If you can get any access at all to the PC i'd start backing up stuff pronto before it dies.
Good luck
