Hi John66,

Let us know the system model.

Did you perform any hardware change recently?

For Dell laptop, perform hardware diagnostics using the link mentioned below:

If the diagnostics pass with no error code, refer to the link mentioned below:

There are countless reasons why a computer might make buzzing sounds and start slowly. Let's knock them off one by one.

When was the last time you cleaned the dust from the air vents with a can of compressed air? Remember to use a pencil or something else firm but soft to ensure the fan blades don't spin, or else you could burn out the ball bearings. Manually rotate the blades yourself as you clean them.

Apologies if I don't respond to your reply immediately. I don't check this site daily, but you're welcome to PM me as a reminder.

My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite notebook
5.9 WEI
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-321 CPU @ 2.50GHz 2.50 GHz
(RAM) 8.00 GB
64-bit ) Operating System

And I have tried to reboot by restart and pressing F8 but it doesn't work so I switched computer off and restarted holding F8 key which did and went to last known good configuration but it is still very slow to start up. I'm no computer nerd but would love to be and learn DIY fixes as it can be costly to fix in a shop

A virus is another possibility. As a minimum run this freebie to see what it finds and fixes:

It often finds what your AV can miss.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
