:robotsad: :robotsad: i bought an 02 dongle from argos, i have toped it up, with £15 for 3gb per month.every time i turn my laptop on the dongle makes a high pitch constant noise, it used to be for about a min, but now it is getting worse.i thought at first it could be the tv interference, but i went into my bedroom no tv on.. and it still make the noise. when it makes this noise the light changes colour to purple from the connected blue light. can anyone help please...
the laptop is ok without the dongle, i usually start up the laptop with dongle inserted at same time, i will try insert the dongle when laptop is already running. but even, when i am on-line with the dongle, it still makes a noise occasionally which may last for a min or two. which makes me belive it could be the usb port.
i will try it in another laptop.. thanks for reply..
EVENING everyone, latest news is that the dongle,works fine on another laptop, no noise no real issues, the laptop in question works OK without the dongle in. but only makes the noise like a constant high pitch scream when the dongle is inserted into the usb port. the laptop has only 2 ports, on left side, he laptop is a Toshiba satellite l10-333. so it is the usb port at fault. is there anything i can buy, to over come the problem, so i don't have to pay for repairs. thanks again Paul.
