What to Do If Computer or Hard Drive Makes Buzzing or Grinding Noise?
computer-over-heating
Sometime when you are working on your laptop or desktop; very random noises start coming from hard drives. Like buzzing noise, grinding noise, or clicking noise coming from hard drives. This can be very irritating and you may start wondering about the reason for the hard drive noise. There may be some other random type of noises coming from your drive.
Clicking Noise from Hard Drive
Head Stuck Noise from Hard Drive
What are the Reasons for Hard Drive Grinding Noise?

There are two possible reasons for grinding noise coming from Hard Drive or the computer. Let’s look at each:

Reason 1: Firstly, the buzzing or grinding noise could be because of the CPU FAN. FAN is embedded to cool down the heated system and prevent overheating damages. There are computers designed to run all the fans simultaneously and at the maximum speed initially. This is to check if the fans are working properly and to remove the accumulated dust. The speed of one fan is not strong enough to remove the dust; hence we need multiple fans to operate simultaneously.

If there is something that obstructs the normal functioning of these fans in the PCs. It could be their blades hitting each other as they do not necessarily spin at an even pace. Therefore, resulting in a grinding noise. If this is the reason, you can easily detect it. It requires you just to open your computer and check the blades of the fans, whether or not they hit each other when in the running mode.

Reason 2: Secondly, it could be the grinding noise from the hard disk. In fact, this indicates something bad or negative, and you should be worried about this. The reason being, severe internal damage is what may follow. To be specific, the grinding noise from the HDD is a symptom of the hard drive failure in the future. This indicates that components in the hard drive have turned faulty.

Effects of Hard Disk Drive Failure

If the HDD in your computer fails, all the data stored on it becomes inaccessible or is lost. This indeed is a big setback. Nothing can be worse than losing access to all your important data. Therefore, you should fix the hard drive grinding noise issue before it leads to complete hard drive failure. A hard drive failure will result in a data loss situation. Even if you have a failed hard disk, you should take the necessary steps to recover the lost or inaccessible HDD data.

Steps Towards Hard Drive Recovery When it Started Making Weird Noise

Now that you are aware of the effects of a hard disk buzzing or grinding noise. Let’s now look at the methods to recover the lost data from hard drive:

1: Backup and restore all your hard drive data – Soon after you detect that the grinding noise is from the hard disk of your computer, the first and foremost step that you should take is getting a backup of all your data. You can take backup on any external or removable media storage. This backup file is of great use to restore data when the hard drive fails.

2: Use Hard Drive Recovery Software – Using quality and proven Hard Drive recovery software is another way to regain all lost data. You can employ this method of using data recovery software in several conditions.e.g.

Deleted data
Lost backup data from an external drive
Corrupted data
Virus-infected data
Note: Data recovery software only works on working hard drive. So you can use DIY software before your hard drive becomes dead due to physical damage.

3: Go for Hard Drive Recovery Service – Another way to recover data from failed hard disk is via professional Hard Drive recovery services from a reputed data recovery service provider. The one that you choose must guarantee that you should get back your complete lost data. Stellar Data Recovery is the professional data recovery service provider in India. We have service Centers spread across the country and caters to all forms of Data Recovery – Hard Drive Recovery, RAID Recovery, Server Recovery, SSD Recovery, File Recovery, Email Recovery, SD Card Recovery etc.

Conclusion

As stated above in the blog, restoring the backup is one of the cheapest and effective ways to recover data during instances of HDD failure. However, if you have a failed backup or do not have the backup at all. You can opt for software in the comfort of your home or office. You can use data recovery software for your Windows and Mac provided your hard disk is detecting. If that is not the case, then contact PC Expert Services for professional assistance.

Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti for Laptops

Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti for Laptops

If the 3050 Ti is real, the GPU will probably be packed in laptops under $1,000, opening the door for more affordable PC gaming with the latest graphics technology.

Asus may have accidentally leaked details about an Nvidia RTX 3050 Ti GPU coming to laptops. The GPU model is mentioned in the tech specs for one of Asus’s latest laptops, the TUF Dash F15, which went on sale last month.

The product’s web page originally listed a mysterious “GN20-P0” chip under the graphics options you could buy for the laptop. But on Friday the tech specs had been updated to explicitly state the name RTX 3050 Ti.

Based on the web page, the 3050 Ti will feature 4GBs of GDDR6 RAM, which is down from the 6GBs found in the laptop-based RTX 3060.

But if the 3050 Ti is real, the GPU will probably be packed in laptops under $1,000, opening the door for more affordable PC gaming with the latest graphics technology. Currently, the TUF Dash F15 with the RTX 3060 is being sold for $1,099.

In January, Nvidia announced the first trio of RTX 3000 GPUs for laptops with the RTX 3060, 3070, and 3080. PC vendors including Alienware, Gigabyte, and Razer have all begun to incorporate them into their gaming laptops at prices from $1,000 to $2,000 plus.

The GPUs also provide an alternative for anyone struggling to buy the desktop graphics cards in the RTX 3000 series, which continue to sell out in minutes at all the major retailers.

However, if you decide to buy a laptop with an RTX 3000 GPU, we’d advise you to first check out reviews of the specific product model. In recent tests the laptop-based RTX 3070, including on the Asus TUF Dash F15, and it is noticed that performance can vary depending on how the GPU is implemented on the hardware. It’s also important to note GPUs built for laptops usually pack less performance than the desktop versions.

3 Easy Ways to Uninstall Programs in Windows 10

3 Easy Ways to Uninstall Programs in Windows 10

Windows 10 offers several built-in ways to delete unwanted software, but several third-party programs can also rid your hard drive of unneeded applications. Let’s look at your options.
computer-over-heating

If there are several applications on your Windows 10 PC that you no longer use, you aren’t stuck with them. Get rid of them to free up disk space and unclutter your Start menu.

Windows 10 includes an uninstaller option available through the Start menu, Settings screen, and buried within Control Panel. You can quickly and cleanly remove a Windows 10 Universal app through the uninstall feature in the Start menu and in Settings, though not with the Control Panel applet.

However, if you try to remove a full desktop application using Windows’ built-in options, the process often leaves behind leftover folders, files, and Registry entries. That’s why you may want to use a third-party uninstaller, which can fully wipe out entire applications and leave no traces behind. Let’s go over your options.

Uninstall From the Start Menu
Uninstall From the Start Menu
You can uninstall a program from the Windows 10 Start menu. Click the Start button and look for a program you wish to remove, either in the All Apps list on the left or in the tiled section on the right. Right-click the program. If it can be removed this way, you’ll see an option for Uninstall in the pop-up menu. Click it, confirm you want to uninstall it, and it’s gone.
Uninstall in App Settings
uninstall-programs-in-app-settings-in-windows-10

You can also go to Settings > Apps > Apps & features to more easily view all the programs you can uninstall. This screen shows you both Windows Universal and standard desktop applications, so you should find every program installed on your PC here. Scroll down the list to locate the program you wish to remove, then click it and select Uninstall.

Uninstall Through Control Panel
uninstall-programs-through-control-panel-in-windows-10
If you prefer using Control Panel, that option is still available in the latest edition of Windows 10. Click the Start button and scroll down to the Windows System folder. Click the folder, then select the Control Panel shortcut. You can also search “Control Panel” in the search bar.

Why Laptop Hinges Break?

Laptop hinges are basically are made of metals mainly iron or steel or alloy material. The only function is to add a physical connection between the Screen panel and the base body. In the base body, it gets fitted with 2 or 3 screws into the metal stud which is shielded in the plastic body ( generally all laptop bodies are made of plastic material ). Now touchpad gets fitted with the base with the screws beneath to set the entire body properly. When we start using a laptop and flip it off – its base screws start getting loose and thus creates a gap between base and touchpad. In the meantime, due to dust and moisture, these metal hinges start getting tight. Now in this situation, whenever you start opening the laptop, it starts pulling the base body and after a while, it comes out the base. If you are not lucky enough, it will damage the display cable/ camera cable or can even damage the motherboard. Laptop bodies are made of plastic not with metal like MacBook’s and hence breaking chances are very high.

Is your computer slow? Keep crashing?

Is your computer slow? Keep crashing?

Is your computer slow? Keep crashing? We’ve got a fix

  If you’re frustrated by your painfully slow computer, it’s time to speed it up and end the constant headaches.

Your computer collects lots of data and files that quickly clog up its system with such frequent use. You also might be picking up some poor computer-hygiene habits along the way. Of course, hackers are watching all of this, too, and just waiting to pounce on vulnerable WiFi connections—and vulnerable people.

Here’s the good news: you don’t have to live with a frustratingly slow computer.

Is your computer slow? Keep crashing? We've got a fix
computer-over-heating
PC Expert Services has the expertise and knowledge to improve your PC performance by identifying and troubleshooting the root causes of your computer troubles.

If your computer feels like it’s going to burst into flames, or its fan makes it sound like you live on a helipad, that means the machine is overheating. This first causes your computer to slow down, and eventually leads to long-term damage. In the short term, it might even randomly crash or shut itself off.

A few ways to address an overheating computer before it’s too late are to clean out dust and other debris blocking airflow by NOT using a can of compressed air. If you use a Air can then all the dust and debris will be pushed back toward the fan and will block the fan and slow down its rotation and cause more harm.

You also want to encourage air flow by keeping your laptop on a hard surface at all times. Plopping your laptop on the bed—or any soft surface that blocks air—while you stream shows in bed is not just a bad habit; it’s dangerous.

Conclusion

The best thing to do is to take your PC or Laptop to PC Expert Services in Irvine. This is the safest way to get the problem resolved.

“Please bring in your PC or Laptop to PC Expert Services. We highly recommend not to take your PC or laptop apart if you do not know how. Please submit the drop off form at PC Expert Services and bring in yourcomputer for further professional and correct repair.”
