Hello everyone, my problem is that whenever I start up the computer I hear a sound like something snapping or a fast crack noise. This hasen't happened to me before. It started happening during the last 6 start ups. Is this normal in any way? Could It be the case stretching after I turn it on? I turned it on and off 6 times in 1 day(I only use my PC once or twice a week) and the problem was still there.Also,My PC is really new(2 months). Please Help!

1 more thing, it was more like a pop. It sounded like a bridge creaking or something stretching for a quik "k" sound. It can also sounds like the wood "poping" in an old house. Kind of like if you sit in a room for awhile and you hear a pop. I wasn't very loud though.Maybe you guys thought that it lasted for awhile, it actually lasted for a quick millisecond like a not too loud POP. If it is a broken capacator, how could that have happened? I have a very high quality surge protecter and my temps are low. My motherboard is a gigabyte z77-Ds3h and PSU is antec 750w high current gamer.
If it's not a bad capacitor then it is your dedicated sound card, that's if you have one. You may have never noticed it until now. I'd highly recommend flashing around for a bad capacitor on your motherboard, dedicated cards, or in your PSU. They can be easy to find, but lets hope you don't have any bad caps.
