Ever since my video card started freezing my system, and after I replaced different cards, my system started making a buzzing sound when I boot up. First when I used my old ATI Radean 9500pro (its old and would freeze after about 5 mins), then I tried other new cards and it would still make that sound. now I'm running GeForce 5500 and just 5 mins ago It booted to windows, then restarted my system, then gave some weird blue screen error and rebotted again when going into windows. Then my monitor was a sleep so I had to turn pc off for a few mins. When I booted again i changed BIOS settings in "Primary VGA BIOS" to AGP VGA Card (it was always on PCI but Im running VGA so...)
I dont know if that made a difference but my PC is working now.
What do you guys think this is. Could it be the motherboard? I tried Radean 3650 and it still had that buzzing sound on that too. I am looking to upgrade to GeForce7600 GS but don't want to kill the new card if my motherboard is tripping. Please give me some input if possible.. thanks.

I had an ASUS board that made a whining noise when it was powered on, almost like a capacitor was going out on it... however after two RMAs to Asus it was determined to be a problem with the North Bridge chipset causing high frequency humming. Very annoying and Asus decided to replace my motherboard. I like their products but I'm hesitant to try another Asus board now. I have bought two Gigabyte boards and they're pretty decent so far.
