  1. I would look at the fans, CPU fan, chipset and then power supply and case fans.

  2. Not sure what it is, but it may be a sticky fan. To fix this, carefully pull the stickers off your fans and even more carefully add a drop of oil. Rotate the fan blades around for a bit by hand, wipe any exess oil off, and then carefully place the sticker back on. Make sure your fans are not attatched when you do this, you do not want to get oil on your hs because it will reduce its cooling capacity.
  3. My sister's computer just had this same sort of noise and it was coming fromt the powersupply. Luckily for her I had a spare PSU sitting around and now here computer is much quieter. So I would check the PSU fan.

    <b>Just because I like AMD or Intel more at a time because of one product compared to another, does not make me a fan boy, it makes me a person who is able to make a descision for myself.</b>
  4. I'm almost positive it's the monitor. You're probably running an older monitor at, or near, it's max resolution and frequency. The same thing happens on mine. When it boots up, it's at 800x600x60, so is nice and quiet, but when windows starts it goes to 1024x768x60 (it's max setting). When this happens, it makes that ringing sound. I suggest you try a different monitor or different settings and see if that does it.

  5. If it is the monitor and the setting 'optimal' is available, use it.

  6. My monitor is an 8-year old POS. I'm surprised it still turns on. I'm going to be getting an LG or Viewsonic Flatscreen display, but I also need a new desk to hold it. Gonna be a couple months before that happens :(

  7. LoL!!!

    Mine is an LG Studioworks 77i (see specs for a pic). Had in since new in Novemeber...wait for it...1997!

    Now I'm after a 19" CRT one. Prolly the Iiyama 454 Pro. Very nice refresh rates vs resolutions. A little pricy, but hardly a fortune.
