Sales have stopped here too. Nothing for 2 days now!
Will do kind sir! Probably due to dust that it started rattling.. dust is the enemy of all PC’s!
Just slid the case door back on and there was an almighty grinding sound. Turned out that the ventilation housing (that is attached to the case door and sits over the heatsink) was catching the fan this time. Bad design. It sounded like a chainsaw going off!
Hi guys, I’m a bit behind the times with technology and have always tried to make all my hardware last as long as possible. So although I do have some new technology (Win 8 PC for composing, android tablet etc) I also still have a 25 year old Panasonic CRT TV (still going strong) video recorders and both a PC and Laptop still running Win XP.
Recently, my 8 year old PC started rattling really loudly and so I had to switch my internet connection to my Laptop which isn’t ideal. Today though, I decided to set myself the challenge of trying to sort this rattling sound out if I could. After all, a bit of work might save me quite a bit of money by not having to upgrade the PC. So imagine my delight, when, after a couple of hours of trying out various things, I sorted the issue out. It wasn’t a faulty dimm connector (as I first though) or some other faulty component…it wasn’t a loose fan or heatsink etc. No, it turned out to be simply the power supply making the rattling noise..the fan was either faulty or clogged with dust! In the end I just swapped it with another one from another PC (I have about 4 broken ones lying around…lol) and problem solved! My system is back up and running, smoothly and quiet as a mouse as before!
So if you get a loud rattling noise coming from your pc and don’t know what it is, check the power supply first. It might be as simple as that!
Unlucky for some…13 sales over here now!
Come on then! Let’s all have a great big Global communal hug!
Just made a 2nd sale on a 2 year old piece!
Got it Calvin!
I’ve just been comparing this year’s sales with last year’s and considering the amount of new authors and all the concerning changes (new Tax rules, Google, Search engines, AdRev effect etc) in comparison, it’s not too bad at all (apart from a horrible February).
