Strange, possibly unrelated problems with graphics and noise...

Recently I have been having severe audio and video stuttering while gaming. I ran CPU-Z, DiskCheckup, and Everest to see if there are any hardware problems but everything comes back as normal.

In addition, there is a high-pitched and very rapid clicking noise that accompanies these problems. The sound is arhythmic, and the light on my network card flashes in sync with the noise. However, the noise and flashing go away when I am not doing strenuous tasks such as gaming.

I have an nVidia 7600 GT, about 3 years old, and a WD 80gig hard drive that is....well, very old. Other than that, all my components are new.

I would suspect the hard drive is telling you it's getting tired.

I would suggest not gaming [don't kill the HD] until you get a different hard drive.

I would agree, but that doesn't explain the buzzing noise or it's being in sync with the flashing of the LAN card's light
