I have an HP Pavilion Desktop that "revs up" a lot, like an idle car that all of a sudden jumps up in RPM's. It does this a couple of times, like you're pressing the gas on an idling car, then it settles down.
This is an a6750y
, although the label on the machine says a6000.
About a year ago, the machine would do the same thing, and then it died and wouldn't boot, it would just blink at me. I recently installed Windows 7 Enterprise, and that all went well, and I didn't make any hardware changes, and it's running fine, but the "rev'ing" up is indicative of something that's not right, since it did it before it died (when it was running Vista)
What might this be ?
Qlemo, ok, thank you. I will give it a good dusting / cleaning. and yes, will leave the higher end fixing to others.
That should about do it, I'll leave this open until tomorrow, but that's what I was looking for.
one quick side question, it looks like I can take it to 16mb RAM (and I see the 4 slots), any thoughts on that ? it has 4 GB now.
