To make a short story long.
I wanted to format a hard drive. No worries. I thought I'll clean pc on the inside, remove the dust. No worries, I've done this before.

Then I turned on pc. No more image and all of suddenly the hard drive made a lot of noise. T was like a vacuum cleaner. After that I thought maybe I should clean the fan. No worries. Done that before as well.

Cleaned it, put it back en turned on pc. This time bleeping sound emitted from the pc. Continuously high followed by a low sound. On one internet site I saw a list with codes for bleeping sounds and for my system the sound meant that something was wrong with cpu or memory.

Ordered a new processor en installed it. No more bleeping sounds en excessive noise but also still no image.

It's an older pc with Intel Pentium 4 Socket 478. This time I will order the exact same processor that was inside pc before I start ordering more stuff.

Even though I am the richest man in the universe, I do not have a lot of money.
So I guess my question really is: Are there any solutions out there. Or does anyone have a golden tip for this young man? (Amateur hobbyist)

Some data about this pc:

Moederbord: ASUS P4T-E

Intern geheugen: Intel Pentium 4 1.8 GHZ/256/400/17.5V

Videokaart: ASUS V7700PRO/64M(V7700TI/64M)

Not much help, just comments...the others here (more knowledgeable than I) will provide the help :).

IMO, it's rare when two hardware components go bad at once.

If replacing the CPU and hard drive don't render a useable system...I would be thinking PSU and/or motherboard, rather than your suspects. I guess I would also include RAM but I don't see the connection between RAM and hard drive problems such as you describe.


Key question: What made you decide you needed to format your hard drive? What were you attempting to cure?

Do you get a no signal displaying on the monitor when you switch on to boot if you don't get no signal tell me what does display during post and where it appears to stop.

I can't be of any help either but, I can't help but wonder... how did you clean the dust out? A can of air? Vacuum? Though I wouldn't suspect it happening, for a brief moment I pictured someone wiping out the inside of the computer with a damp cloth.

A can of air usually does but the best tool to have a around when cleaning the dust out is a brush. Do not use a vacuum!
