I bought a Compaq Presario in (about) 2002-2003. Ever since I bought the stupid machine I have ahd MAJOR issues with it. Now, it (upon start up and randomly throughout times that I have it turned on) it makes this horrible loud squeeling noise. Im use to a fan like sound (had an issue with that once too) but this is a loud loud noise. So, the left side of the machine, where the noise is coming from, has little vents. I tried to see if I could look inside there and see what was wrong but obv, was not able too. Soooo I just took a breath and blew into it (thinking it might be dust or something... even though its always in a bag or protected otherwise)... and a smoke like puff came out. Any idea why the hell this would happen? I am about ready to throw this thing out the window. Im not the only one who has threatened the machine :), my boyfriend has too. :rolleyes:
can anyone help???
