Hello,

yesterday my computer starting to whistle, i was figuring out what is was. and when i changed the frequenty of my gpu the whistle stops and gets louder.
so i thought lets update my gpu driver so maybe its the problem. but in that process the win32 application stopt working and the sound also stopped. after the installation of the beta driver i restarted the computer and the sound started overagain. so i closed the win32 in taskmanager and the sound stopped.

is it a virus destroying my gpu?! or bug ?? what to do about it?

Sounds like a fan issue on the gpu. Have you tried cleaning it out, removing the dust, etc.? Changing the gpu frequency changed the sound, which means it probably either it slowed the fan down or sped it up to compensate.

Not sure about the process you ended, but I suppose it could be tied to the gpu frequency or fan speed ... don't really know on that one. I'd try giving your gpu a good cleaning and see what happens. If that doesn't work, it is possible it isn't dirty and just messed up, but that's a good place to start.
